When you’re looking to order shutters for your new home, or it has come time to replace your existing ones, you simply cannot find anything more classic, more versatile than timber shutters. For any style of home, contemporary lines to traditional façades, wooden shutters hewn from red cedar will provide the finishing touches on your exterior with style and efficiency.

You just cannot find anything in this world that compares to the sheer versatility of wood. Timber of all kinds can be carved, hewn, whittled and shaped to fit almost every need. In today’s increasing desire to be more ‘green’, wood is gaining in popularity for its very eco-friendly natures. Also, its strength and durability make wood a very smart choice for exterior shutters for every home. And, because wood can be painted, stained or even just oiled to allow its natural beauty to shine through, the possibilities are virtually endless as far as your exteriors’ appearance.

Timber is a very renewable source of material; because it’s a natural product and not synthetic, its production doesn’t harm the environment in any way. Furthermore, using wood as a building material actually encourages more trees to be planted so you’re not only doing your home a favour by installing timber
blinds Brisbane, but one for the planet as well.

Red Cedar is widely known for its stability and overall attractiveness. As a general rule, timber shutters should be stable, and unlike some other woods, the stability of this gorgeous wood actually allows for shutter panels to be taller or wider than other species, without requiring a supporting rail in the middle. They’re also very durable, and will last through many sunny, rainy, windy and snowy seasons.

Australia’s Western Red Cedar is a very useful timber, and has wonderful acoustic and thermal properties. That means that while you’re keeping heat or cool air in your home, you’re blocking out a good deal of the ambient noise to be found outside. Their very solid nature also ensures privacy in your home, but being that Red Cedar is a very lightweight wood, you won’t have to worry that your shutters will be too heavy to open, to close, or even harm your walls with their installation.

Timber shutters are highly versatile; it doesn’t matter whether your home has a modern, sleek look and feel or one that is more traditional and cosy, shutters crafted from wood add a depth and a grace to any window. Red Cedar
shutters Brisbane come in a variety of styles, and can be fitted to angled, raked or even arched window styles. The width of the louvre blades can range from 50 elliptical millimetres to 115 elliptical mm.

All in all, you cannot find shutters that are as durable, as versatile, as efficient and as just plain attractive as timber shutters. And given that you can order these shutters painted a specific colour or simply bring out their natural beauty, there’s really no reason not to have your timber shutters installed.
