Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters are now more popular in Australia than ever before. Homeowners throughout the nation are recognising their potential as a long-term investment option and a classy substitute for conventional blinds and curtains.

Plantation shutters are characterized by their tilted wooden louvres, similar to the horizontal slats on blinds. Unlike blinds, shutters are installed directly into the frame of the window, and can therefore be opened outwards like a doorway instead of rolled up or down using a cord.

One of the defining features of Plantation shutters is the size of their slats. Each slat is large, meaning that there are fewer slats per Shutter. This is fantastic for multiple reasons - for one, it allows for a great deal of light to pass through when the Shutters are open, while also allowing optimum air circulation to regulate the temperature of your home. When they're closed, however, they do a superb job of blocking out light (without irritating bleedage) and preserving your privacy.



Our range of awnings provide a cost-effective remedy to the eye-watering electricity bills you might have become accustomed to while trying to cool your home in summer.

An Awning is a secondary covering attached to the outside wall of a structure. The weather should never decide when you're able to have a family get-together, so it's a great way to maximise the amount of time you can spend in your outdoor spaces throughout the year. Usually, an Awning consists of a taut panel of polyester fabric stretched across a steel or aluminium frame, although with some awnings you can make do with the existing structure of your home. Either way, you'll be able to enjoy added protection from the elements including sun, wind, and hail - always a great investment when living in Australia.

Our Awnings are custom-made right here in Australia, meaning that you have a guarantee of their quality and their ability to withstand the harsh Aussie climate. They're ideal for anything from patios and balconies to commercial spaces such as restaurants and cafe exteriors.

When it comes to deciding on the ideal home improvement, Awnings are definitely worth considering. Fortunately, all of our Awnings are available in a range of colours and durable polyester fabrics, and can be operated either by hand or with a motorised system for easy retraction. Let us help you enjoy your outdoor spaces the way you deserve to!


Outdoor blinds

Outdoor blinds might not be at top of your list of priorities when deciding on a window treatment for your home, and that's okay. It's useful, however, to remember that they can be a fantastic way to increase the comfort factor of your living spaces, both indoors and outdoors! Looking to spent a bit more time on your deck or in your sunroom this year? Outdoor Blinds can help by blocking annoying glare while preserving your privacy. Once installed, they'll also help to protect the flooring, carpet, and interior furnishings of your home by cutting out harsh UV rays to stop fading and discolouration in the long-term.

So, if you're looking for a custom-made solution to help protect your family from the harsh sun during hot Aussie summers and guard your assets against extreme weather damage the rest of the year, look no further. Outdoor Blinds are a perfect way to create a space where you can unwind and entertain friends year-round, no matter the weather.
