Manage light and comfort using stylish window shutters

Shutters are wonderfully versatile window furnishings. They not only provide a touch of traditional charm to any home, but they’re also a convenient and effective solution for helping busy modern residents keep comfortable all throughout the seasons. The high-quality materials in Carpet Call’s custom shutters offer an extra layer of insulation, and they’re easily adjustable to regulate the amount of air and sunlight entering in.

Indoor shutters

Installed on the inside of a window or door frame, indoor shutters can add instant elegance to any space. You can work with us to choose from several slat widths, a range of stained and painted finishes in PVC and timber as well as options for shaped and arched window frames.

Wooden shutters

Traditional timber shutters are a classic choice for durability, insulation, privacy and style. Suitable for the Australian climate and customisable for any window shape, wooden shutters easily complement other architectural elements while bringing a sophisticated presence to interior and exterior spaces.

Plantation shutters

The plantation shutter style was commonly used on stately residences in hot, humid climates as a way to improve air flow and block out the hot sun. They offer a more practical solution to heavy fabric drapes and are easy to adjust as the day progresses. Contemporary plantation shutters combine this innovative approach with modern construction techniques and materials suited to modern-day life.

What’s better, blinds or shutters?

Each type of window treatment offers its own set of advantages; the choice all depends on how you want to improve your space. For instance, you can choose a style like blackout roller blinds, which will block more light than louvred shutters would. As for aesthetics, you might prefer billowing Roman blinds for a soft, lightweight look or wooden shutters for a more architectural appearance. At Carpet Call, we offer custom solutions for both blinds and shutters. Give us a call at 1300 502 427 and we can talk you through the possibilities.

What is the difference between shutters and plantation shutters?

There are several different types of shutters available, and plantation shutters are one of the most popular options. They typically feature louvres that can be controlled with visible tilt rods and are most often painted a bright, airy white. However, plantation shutters can be made in any colour and finish, and they can be installed inside or outside.


A few other interior and exterior shutter styles include: 

  • Cafe shutters, which will cover the bottom half of the window.
  • Shaker style shutters, which feature a flat or raised panel.
  • Board and batten shutters, which are made with vertical slats and horizontal supports.
  • Bahama shutters, which are hinged at the top of the window frame.

Do shutters keep the heat in?

Installing high-quality shutters is a great way to prevent heat loss during the cold weather. Given their solid, heavy material, shutters can block out more draughts than woven fabric window treatments. During the warmer seasons however, shutters can improve ventilation indoors by helping hot air escape without letting too much light in.
