Plantation Shutters Wollongong
Phoenix Blinds supply and install plantation shutters in the Illawarra region from Helensburgh through to Nowra including areas such as Campbell Town, Southern Highlands, South Coast and surrounding areas. We are a family-owned and operated business established 1997 – our team have been providing high-quality products to homeowners and businesses for over two decades.
Plantation shutters are both attractive and functional. They are great for air control and adding ventilation to a room – designed for warm climates, they are easy to operate with moveable blades that allow airflow and light into a room.
Our range is sourced from high-quality materials and are available in either timber or PVC. We generally recommend PVC for most of our Illawarra clients because it will last longer in our climate, however timber is the preferred option for larger panels due to its lighter weight. If you are uncertain which option will suit your home, budget and application the best then we invite you to visit our show room or call (02) 4257 5822 to organise an obligation-free consultation with one of our sales representatives.

Frequently asked questions about plantation shutters:
Due to the versatility of plantation shutters, they can be installed on the vast majority of windows, no matter their size or style. If you have a false ceiling (also known as a suspended ceiling), however, plantation shutters may not be suitable for installation. In addition to being compatible with the majority of windows, plantation shutters can also be installed on patio sliding doors, conservatories and French doors.
The number of panels needed for a plantation shutter installation will depend on the size of your windows and your style preferences. As a minimum, it is often recommended to have two panels per window so that the shutters can be opened from the middle. You may require more panels, however, if you have a large window or wish for a more traditional look. A bay window, for example, may have 6 panels.
Our expert team will be able to provide advice on how many panels you require to create your desired plantation shutter installation. To see examples of plantation shutters, check out our gallery.
To ensure plantation shutters can be installed correctly and look as you intended, it’s essential they are the right size. For this reason, rather than supplying one-size-fits-all plantation shutter panels, we create plantation shutters based on your unique measurements. We will complete a measure and quote, free of charge.
Plantation shutters can be installed in a variety of colours. For example, if you opt for timber plantation shutters you can choose the shade and stain of the wood. Both PVC and timber shutters can be painted in the colour of your choice but it is essential to use paints that are formulated for use on either PVC or wood to ensure the best finish possible. Our team are happy to provide expert advice on colour options.
This process can vary depending on the availability of materials and complexity of the job but usually, it takes around 8-10 weeks. Demand can also be a factor, but we will always endeavour to have your shutters ready and installed in a rapid timeframe without sacrificing quality.

As a plantation shutters Wollongong specialist, we hold a wide range of high-quality plantation shutters from top brands. We know that no home is identical to the next, and we ensure our comprehensive range includes solutions to fit a wide array of budgets and window sizes. We ensure the perfect fit from floor-to-ceiling modern panes to vintage, smaller and more obscure sizes of windows.
Our recommendation for most plantation shutters is to choose a hard-wearing, lightweight PVC material to ensure longevity. However, we also offer timber options for our customers, with a range of colourways and sizes to suit every area of your home. If you’d like low-maintenance shutters that stand the test of time, PVC is always our first suggestion for our Wollongong customers.
Combining curtains with shutters can be an effective way to add texture and interest to windows. Provided your curtain pole isn’t flush to the wall, curtains and plantation shutters can be used together as a way to add versatility to the amount of sun you let into the home. As a stylistic choice, the practicality of shutters and a curtain design is an effective way to create your perfect interior design look.
