Common Plantation Shutter Questions

Basswood is a hardwood timber that originates from the northern hemisphere. In recent years basswood has become known as an ideal material for plantation shutters due to its resistance to warping, durability and being eco-friendly (Basswood is FSC Certified).

Fun Fact: As a reliable timber, Basswood is also commonly used for musical instruments including guitars and pianos.

Pricing for plantation shutters in Melbourne is one of the most common requests we get. As a ballpark guide, plantation shutters cost between $250 – $350 per square meter. Installation costs are on average $100 per window.

The final pricing ultimately depends on the chosen material, size of the window, shape of the window, whether or not the shutters will be hinged or if it requires a frame, the number of panels and additional dividers or if any supports are needed.

Due to requiring very minimal maintenance, plantation shutters can have quite a long lifespan compared to other window treatments. The lifetime of quality a plantation shutter from Flush Fitment can be up to 15 – 30 years.

Our plantation shutters are rated for Melbourne’s level of UV and are highly resistant to sun damage. Unlike other window furnishings such as roman blinds or curtains, Plantation shutters are a repairable window furnishing. If your plantation shutters suffered from accidental damage, we can even repair the shutter and supply replacement louvres.

The timeframe between order and installation for plantation shutters in Melbourne is on average 4 – 8 weeks. It will vary on your chosen configuration, the quantity of shutters and time of the year that you place your order. November to February is a busy season, and sometimes there can be a backlog of work from holiday closure.

Helpful Hint: For brand new homes it is best to try and contact Flush Fitment as early as possible. Sometimes we can get access to your home during the lock-up stage to perform your measure and quote. This usually will leave enough time that we can have your blinds installed as soon as you move in.

Plantation shutters are not a total blackout window furnishing, and small amounts of light can be seen around the edges of the frame and louvres/blades. Shutters installed with frame offer an optional L shape edge that can help block out light from the outside edges.

Plantation shutters do a great job and keeping the heat out by adding a thermal barrier that reduces the loss of heat through the glass. When the shutters are in the closed position, you add an extra layer of wood between the window and the air inside your home.
