How Much Do Perfect Plantation Shutters Cost?

Top Tips

Posted 11/04/2019

If you want to know how much plantation shutters cost, it’s safe to say you’ve come to the right place folks! We know a thing or two about creating perfect plantation shutters that are made to measure and never sacrifice quality, so who better to fire a few questions at?


How Are the Costs Calculated?

This is something we get asked a lot, so we thought we’d put together everything you need to know in a simple guide. Here’s the rundown…


Most plantation shutters are priced up by their square footage. In other words; the bigger they need to be, the most expensive they’ll be.


One great thing to bear in mind is that by installing them yourself by following our simple step-by-step instructions, you can save yourself up to 40% of the cost of buying and paying for installation.


That’s plenty of money you can keep in your back pocket to spend on some other bits and pieces for the house!


An Easy to Follow Example Calculation

Take a look at the two images below of Daytona Chalk White (full height shown), and Daytona Vivid White (half height shown). They’re slightly differently designs, but we’ve chosen two images from our catalogue that show full height and half height shutters in action.


When you want a price for a given design, all you need to do is follow our simple measurement guide, and then enter it into our pricing calculator. You’ll find both of them on every product page.


As a rule of thumb, half the size means half the price. That means you can pick any design you like, and know you won’t pay drastically more for a slightly different sized shutter.


Things You Need to Consider When Choosing Plantation Shutters


-    Check that you’ve followed our measuring guide that can be downloaded on any plantation shutter product page.

-    Find a design that you love, and choose which variety of shutter you want (more on that later).

-    Contact us if you have irregular shaped windows, and we’ll tell you how we can help out.



Why Plantation Shutters Can Transform Your Home

Shutters are a great way to combat humidity in the kitchen or bathroom, and they’re also great at adding a homely touch to the bedroom or bathroom. If you want a contemporary style that adds a touch of the country aesthetic to your home, then shutters are a great alternative to more traditional roman and venetian blinds. Just what you need when you want your window spaces to really make a statement.


Oh, and did we forget to mention that you can easily dust them in a couple of seconds? Perfect keeping them looking as good as new!
