With their wider louvres and classic styling reminiscent of the grand homesteads of America's south, plantation shutters are a clean, elegant solution for giving any windows of any home a stunning makeover, and their wow factor extends from the outside-in or inside-out perspective of the house.
While the look of plantation shutters is instantly appealing regardless of modern or traditional tastes, it is their versatility and functionality that has made them one of the most popular types of window shutters available today. These internal shutters can even be used for shaped windows. Unlike curtains, they fit relatively flush with the window frames, opening any room to more space – from bathrooms, kitchens and laundries to bedrooms, dining rooms and living rooms.
For Spotlight customers, the reality of giving your home a lift with plantation shutters is even greater due to our highly competitive prices.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Choose plantation shutters constructed from PVC – ideal for wet areas like bathrooms, kitchens and laundries or timber for a beautiful finish in bedrooms and living areas. Fauxwood shutters provide a warm 'wood look' at a fabulously affordable price. You can be rest assured knowing our premium quality materials come with a 5-year warranty on timber, and a 7-year warranty on fauxwood and PVC.
Temperature, privacy and light control
The louvres of plantation blinds mean they can be tilted and adjusted across the day and the seasons to regulate temperature, privacy and light. A hidden tilt rod gives you an unobstructed, 180-degree view whenever the louvres are open. Installing these quality shutters will also help you save on energy bills across the colder and warmer months.
To suit your design scheme and the requirements of your window fittings, our plantation shutters come in different hinging options – fixed, hinged, double-hinged, bi-fold and sliding.
Easy installation and maintenance
Spotlight's Made to Measure service is inclusive of installation. For ongoing care, all these shutters require is regular dusting with a soft cloth or a duster specifically made for slats, plus the occasional 'spring clean' with warm, soapy water to keep them in showroom condition.
At Spotlight, you have the choice of our either imported or Australian-made to support our local industry. Sourcing from our offshore supply chain means you can access a wider selection of shutters for different tastes and décor.
Our promise to you
Spotlight's commitment is to provide you with the highest quality shutters at the best prices available. Additionally, all our shutters come with limited warranties that vary depending on the materials used.
We want you to love your shutters – and love them for years to come!
PLANTATION SHUTTERS – FAQS
What are the plantation shutters made of?
Spotlight's plantation shutters come in a choice of three materials – wood, fauxwood and aluminium-reinforced PVC. These materials are suited to different aesthetic and practical applications across the interior windows of any home (for example, PVC's water-resistance makes it perfect for wet or steamy rooms). They are not suitable for exterior applications.
What colours do the shutters come in?
Plantation blinds are traditionally white. Spotlight offers various shades of white including Snow (the crisp whitest of whites), Classic (the warmest white, closer to beige) and Bright (a shade of white that falls between the other two).
However, for those who want a customised look to their plantation shutters, we can accommodate your request for additional plain, painted colours or timber stains.
Do plantation shutters keep the cold out?
Given most Australian homes have single-glazed windows, we can do with some extra help when it comes to insulating our windows against the weather. Plantation blinds and shutters have proven to be excellent insulators – and great for lowering the power bills – regardless of the outside temperature.
Do plantation shutters add value to the home?
A combination of good looks, functionality and an ability to insulate means that plantation shutters add to every home in more ways than one. Considering they're a much sought-after window furnishing, they're also sure to add exponentially to the value of your property.
