I love plantation shutters in Melbourne. The Australian sun is too intense to do without quality shutters which can cut out light completely but give you the option to let as much light in as you like.
Plantation shutters, especially in dark timbers, look great against white walls, very solid and very classy. Where curtains attract dust and become tattered over time, plantation shutters tend to just keep getting better. When they’re tired you can just give them a sand and varnish or a paint job and they’re like new again so it is an easy DIY job. Blockout Blinds are Melbourne based and have a great selection of quality plantation shutters. I love what they did at my office.
