Add A Value To Your Property By Installing Louvre Shutter

Louvre ShutterLouvre shutters add great value to your property and if hurricanes even like Irma category 5 hit your home, you do not have to board up your windows if you have louvre shutters installed – that's how they add value to your property.

In fact, Louvre shutters can not protect your home from storms and hurricanes, they add an extra layer of security to your property and you will feel less insecure than having just glass doors and windows. You can add louvre shutters to even large doors such as those fitted on balconies by adding bi-fold and three-fold louvre shutters.

Most folks assume that adding louvre shutters is a big headache – not true. You can just visit shops such as Apollo blinds, Sydney and they will come over, measure your window(s) and or door(s) and also do the fitting for you. You even get to choose the type of louvre shutters you like and colours too so they match the home décor.

If you are a DIY kind of person than making louver shutters is real easy-busy. The secret is in a jig for use with your favourite router. Firstly, you cut the rails and stiles for your particular set of wooden louvers.

Knowing that each slat in the louvers will require one vertical inch of space, you should leave a 1/8" gap for each adjacent slats (top and bottom). For example, if you require a 2' tall opening for the louvers, you'll need to have a opening that is 2-feet and one quarter inch and insert 24 angled slats at exactly one-inch intervals. Also, you will need 1/4" deep groove so the slats must be formed half inch more than the width of the opening. In this way you can add value to your property.

You can make louvres for anything be it doors or windows you just need to know the dimensions of the opening. You can even use your best judgement as to how wide each of the stiles and rails should be ripped to maintain the integrity and give it a decent look. And when making the slats, be sure to cut a few extra slats – just in case one or two get spoilt during the making.

For those of you who would rather visit apollo blinds and buy read-to-use Louvre Shutters Online, you select them by figuring out your desired privacy and airflow. This will dictate the size and gap between the slats. Next is to figure out the louvre will handle the desired air volume flow while providing adequate privacy and rain resistance:

If all this seems a bit too complex or complicated don't worry. Just head directly to Apollo Blinds, Sydney or any of the branch outlets all over Australia and ask them for assistance in selecting the right Louvre Shutters Online for your home. You can also visit their website here: for Online Timber Venetian Blinds.

Features And Benefits Of Basswood Shutters

Basswood ShuttersWooden shutters on your windows lend an old world charm to your living space. If you're considering timber shutters for your home, basswood shutters are the ideal choice. They are a popular window covering option used in many Australian homes. Basswood shutters offer certain benefits that other shutters don't.


• As the name suggests, Basswood shutters are made from basswood which is a medium density hardwood called “Tilia Americana”. This hardwood is a member of the Linden family of trees having strong trucks and a fine woodgrain. As a result the shutters created from basswood have a fine texture and a smooth finish.

• Basswood being a medium density timber is neither too heavy nor too light. Yet, it is reasonably hard enough to withstand shocks and bumps.

• Unlike other timbers, basswood is not prone to warping due to heat and moisture. It is kiln dried to remove almost 90% moisture which makes it resistant to warping.


• Since basswood resists warping, the shutters made from it do not bend out of shape. Basswood shutters can be installed even is spaces where you would otherwise avoid timber shutters like bathrooms and kitchens.

• Basswood shutters are durable and sturdy due to the natural hardness of the wood. The wood also works well with the bonding materials and having a fine grain the shutters come with a smooth finish. As such, you'll find basswood shutters are well made, giving a sleek and elegant appeal to your home.

• Shutters can be custom designed to suit the windows or doors with the panel size as per your choice. The blades also come in various sizes. The wood itself can be painted or stained to the colour of your choice.

• As with all wooden shutters, Online Plantation Shutters also allow you to control the light and heat entering the room. You can leave the blades angled to let in some light and air or they can be completely closed to block out the light.

• One of the most important benefit basswood shutters provide is that of insulation. When the blades are closed, you have an insulated space so that the heat does not leave the room in winters or prevents it from entering your home in summer.
