Nowadays, there are various window decorations and coverings you can choose from. Whether you are a fan of blinds, exterior shutters, rollers or awnings, there is always a local store willing to provide what you need.
 

However, just before you step into your vehicle and visit a store, there are certain details that you should know first. These details are often asked the moment you tell them you are interested in buying plantation shutters in Sydney. You won’t want to arrive home empty handed just because you failed to consider these three things:

 

Type

 

There are different kinds of plantation shutters out there, and some of them can be installed outside, or inside the house. It should be your call where and how you would use the shutter.

 

Outdoor plantation shutters are usually made out of durable material such as aluminum or steel in order to provide additional protection and security to the window. On the other hand, indoor plantation shutters are usually made out of plastic. In addition, you should also choose between hinged and fixed shutters, and sliding and multi-door shutters.

 

Measurement

 

This is one of the few things that store representatives and salespeople ask from customers. If you planning to get the best aluminum shutters in town, then you should know how much area you want to cover. Most plantation shutters are capable of covering an area of up to 1350 centimeters wide in one shutter.

 

In case you cannot provide the exact measurement for the window you want to cover, a representative or tradesman will visit your home and measure it themselves. Equipped with years of expertise, they will be knowledgeable in providing allowances, adjustments and other minor changes in measurement.

 

Material

 

Finally, you will be asked what kind of material you would want for your plantation shutters in Sydney. You can choose from stainless steel, aluminum or other exterior grade materials for your plantation shutters. In case you choose aluminum but you want a wooden look, there are also products that have artificial wood grain.
