WHY OUR PLANTATION SHUTTERS ARE THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR YOUR HOME
Our shutters stand out as the ideal choice for homes in Australia. Find out why our shutters are perfect for your space:
- Quality materials and aesthetics
- Light control, privacy and functionality
- Moisture resistance and humidity control
- Easy cleaning and maintenance
QUALITY MATERIALS AND AESTHETICS
Our indoor shutters are made from PVC, a quality material that suits all Australian conditions. They feature an aluminum core and have UV and moisture-resistant properties that work well in kitchens and bathrooms.
With a fauxwood finish, these window furnishings make them a great alternative to traditional wood or timber shutters. Their look adds a touch of elegance to your window treatments.
CHOICE OF COLOURS
The colour of your shutters can make a real difference in how your space feels. The right shade can make your room feel brighter, more spacious or simply more you and that’s why we offer shutters in different colours to match your style:
- Bright White
- Snow White
- Antique White
Our shutters that resemble timber plantation shutters are a great way to bring in warm tones and a natural feel, and our lighter-coloured shutters in varying, crisp shades of eggshell and antique white enjoy enduring popularity as they can be teamed with the colours of the season. So, a warm coloured carpet, rugs and other soft furnishings could be used to add on-trend elements to your interiors.
Simply never out of fashion, indoor shutters improve the appearance of your home from the inside. But did you know they also improve the outside? The sleek lines of horizontal panels can really lift the façade of your house, elevate your street presence and make tired looking windows less noticeable.
Whether your interior style is paired back and modern, or you’ve got a cosy cottage, your shutters will still complement your décor. Even if you’re renovating your home entirely, your shutters can still work with whatever new look you’re creating.
LIGHT CONTROL, PRIVACY AND FUNCTIONALITY
When it comes to making your home more comfortable and functional, our shutters offer three big benefits: light control, privacy and overall functionality. Here’s how these features can make a difference in your living space:
Shutters give you incredible freedom when it comes to managing the light in your home. Whether you choose bi-fold or hinged shutters, you can open their doors to flood the room with light and remove all visual obstruction between indoors and outdoors. Or you can close the doors and shut the blades tight to darken the room and obtain privacy. In the middle ground, there is every angle in between. Tilt them one way to gain more light or another way to block out glare. And, because shutters sit inside their own panels, they can be operated separately, for example, closing the lower panel for privacy while leaving the top panel open for light.
Whether you want them fully open, fully closed or anywhere in between, you can enjoy the versatility to set the mood. For even more control over lighting, pair your shutters with blockout blinds or sheer curtains.
Control your privacy by leaving some panels open to let in light, partially open them for a bit of both worlds or close them entirely for maximum privacy.
In many ways, plantation shutters are like a series of slatted doors that attach to your windows. They are a beautiful, solid piece of engineering that adds light and refinement to your room while serving a practical and important function.
Our shutters can be made in bi-fold or hinged systems:
- Hinged shutters – Hinged shutters allow the shutter ‘doors’ to swing open and are the most popular style of shutter installation.
- Bi-fold shutters – These are installed on a track system that lets the panels bi-fold off one another. They are used on doorways and large windows and can be stacked to one side when you want full access through the doorway. They are perfect for indoor/outdoor areas.
The open-close tilt rod mechanism for the blades can be made in your choice of clearview, centre tilt, or offset tilt rod.
- Clearview – The tilt rod is concealed within the panel for an unobstructed view.
- Centre-tilt – This is the traditional style where the tilt rod sits in the centre of the panel of blades.
- Offset tilt – The tilt rod sits on the left or right of the panel of blades.
MOISTURE RESISTANCE AND HUMIDITY CONTROL
When choosing window treatments, it's important to consider how they'll perform in different conditions. Our shutters are designed to handle moisture and humidity, so they’re ideal for different areas in your home.
Our shutter panels and blades are made from PVC for added strength and durability. They also give the look and feel of real timber but at a fraction of the cost, which is perfect for young families and can be used in any room.
SHUTTERS FOR HUMID AND WET AREAS
Because these shutters are resistant to moisture and humidity, they're exceptionally well-suited for humid and wet areas in your home. This makes them perfect for splash zones like kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms, where traditional window treatments might not hold up as well.
DESIGNED FOR AUSTRALIAN CONDITIONS
Our shutters are made with the Australian climate in mind — they can withstand hot Perth summers and cold Melbourne winters. They're also sturdy enough to stand up to the rigours of busy family homes with pets and children.
EASY CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning your shutters is easy. To keep them fresh for years to come, all they need is a little bit of love that’s in keeping with the basic cleaning required to maintain the rest of your home. Simply follow these quick and easy steps:
- Remove dust: Start by removing dust from each slat, front and back, with a soft cloth or vacuum brush.
- Wipe: Using water mixed with a mild detergent such as dishwashing liquid, take a soft brush or cloth and gently wipe or brush each slat.
- Regular light maintenance: Continue to undertake light regular dusting of your shutters.
If you find that the plantation shutters you bought from us aren't working as they should or there's an issue, don't worry — our team is here to help! Warranty details can differ from product to product, so for more information, please visit or contact your nearest Carpet Court store.
When it comes to windows and doors, one size doesn't always fit all. That's why Carpet Court’s shutters are custom made to size. Because our shutters are made to measure, fitting them into pretty much any shape is possible. They're a great option for large expanses of windows and doors and even unconventional shapes like arches, circles and triangles.
PROFESSIONAL WINDOW SHUTTER INSTALLATION
Carpet Court’s professional installers take the hassle out of DIY installation. Our expert team will make sure your new shutters fit perfectly. Each frame is custom made with the highest quality workmanship and can be fitted with either hinged or bi-fold louvre doors, depending on your preference. This ensures optimal light control and insulation for your home.
Because installing plantation shutters needs exact measurements to fit within tight spaces, we don't recommend doing DIY plantation shutter installation. It's a job best left to the professionals.

ARE PLANTATION SHUTTERS A GOOD IDEA?
Absolutely! While other types of window coverings like Venetian blinds, roller blinds, and Roman blinds have their benefits, our Australian made PVC plantation shutters stand out. These quality shutters are versatile, fit any window frame shape, offer privacy control, match any interior design, resist warping and are low maintenance.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLANTATION SHUTTERS AND OTHER TYPES OF SHUTTERS?
Other types of window shutters often have narrower louvres and may be more suited for specific architectural styles, while plantation shutters have wider louvres for better light control and a more open view, and they're often custom made for a perfect fit.
