Custom made and cOLOUR MATCH 

All our Timber Plantation Shutters are custom-made to suit any window shape & size.  Your plantation shutter blades are available in a variety of sizes & can be colour matched to your paintwork.  Make sure if comparing quotes you know what your shutters are being made from.  There are reasons why SOM Blinds only choose to supply internal timber plantation shutters and not PVC.  Read this article from our supplier Norman Australia if you’d like to find out more about the pros and cons of timber v PVC plantation shutters.

SOM Blinds experienced team are experts at measuring and creating templates for arched or odd shaped windows.  We always allow time to measure your windows perfectly ensuring your shutters can be installed perfectly.  Norman Australia can shape the blades of their shutters & frames to perfectly match your window shape avoiding the odd stepped profile you will often see in some windows.   

Talk to our trained technicians about how your timber plantation shutters will be mounted into your window frames.  This is not a DIY job.  Many companies will only you offer you shutters that come with a frame surrounding them as it’s a much easier & quicker install especially on older homes.  For some windows this is the only option but not always and especially if you have beautiful decorative period architraves you would still like to be visible make sure you discuss this when comparing quotes.


We can supply timber plantation or louvre shutters in various timber types & finishes depending on the rooms use.  If you’d like to enclose an outdoor entertaining area with shutters we’d recommend considering external aluminium shutters.
