Ideal for the Australian climate, these classic interior shutters get their name from the cotton plantations of the American South where they first appeared on homesteads in the early 1800s. Designs and construction methods have come a long way since then, but many modern interior plantation shutters are still painted and finished in that pure, clean white which lends an inimitable feeling of coolness and lightness to any room.
Plantation shutters are designed with warm climates in mind, which is why they offer excellent control light and airflow throughout the day with their easy-to-operate moveable blades. In addition to allowing outstanding control over natural light and ventilation, plantation shutters are also widely considered an excellent investment in curb appeal. As they’re permanent fixtures, attractive indoor plantation shutters can actually enhance the value of your home.
