How much do Plantation Shutters Cost?

Shutter Master Bedroom

Plantation Shutters are the luxury lifestyle choice for your windows, but do they come with a luxury price tag? We’re here to answer your price, value and quality queries for Plantation Shutters in Adelaide.

How expensive are Plantation Shutters?

The cost of Plantation Shutters in Adelaide is based on the material and the size. Generally the cost of shutters is between $350 – $450 per square meter for PVC or Timber Shutters including standard installation. Western Red Cedar Shutters and Aluminium Shutters are generally more expensive and range from $450 – $900 per square meter  installed.

Generally customers should be concerned if a Plantation Shutter is cheaper than $350 per square meter. At this price the product is likely to be very poor quality or the company will have extra hidden costs such as Installation or framing.

What other things affect Plantation Shutters cost?

When buying Plantation Shutters, some extras may increase the cost of the Shutters including:

– Custom Painted Colours

– Custom Shapes

– Different blade types and sizes

– Blockout Shutter styles

– Extra Timbers

– Shutters that are out of square

– Installation

Some companies play games with pricing and make the headline price very low but charge a lot for these extras in order to bump up the total price. Dealing with a quality company like Stan Bond means you can trust the pricing given and the product will always be great value for money.

Which type of Plantation Shutter is best?

When choosing Adelaide Plantation Shutters you will generally have the choice of PVC, Basswood Timber, Paulownia Timber, Western Red Cedar and Aluminium. The choice of which Plantation Shutter is generally based on the application as the materials are better suited for different areas of the home.

Shutters for Bedrooms and Living Areas

Basswood is considered the best choice for Timber Shutters as it is strong, stable, light and can span large widths. However, Basswood is becoming harder to source so many suppliers are moving to Paulownia Timber shutters which is a quicker growing and easier to source option. Paulownia has a greater risk of warping and twisting when compared to Basswood but is still a premium quality choice.

Shutters for Bathrooms and Wet Areas

PVC is the most common option for wet areas such as bathrooms and laundries because it is able to be splashed or exposed to steam without being damaged. Whereas Timber Shutters can swell with continuous exposure to water and steam. Many companies have PVC shutters that look different to the Timber products but Stan Bond’s Loov shutters have a consistent look, size and colour range across both Timber and PVC.

Aluminium Shutters for Outside

Aluminium Shutters are the best option for outside. Powder coated Aluminium lasts in the Australian sun and is tough enough to cope with the elements. Some people are concerned that aluminium shutters provide less insulation but most customers report similar thermal and sound insulation between timber and aluminium shutters.

I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
