Your Shutters. Your Way.

Monday, February 09, 2015

At All Shutters & Blinds, we believe that a shutter solution should be as individual as its owner. That’s why we are committed to providing the most unique and innovative solutions to our client’s requests.

When people think shutters, they often think the traditional 2 panel hinged configuration either done in a white paint or stained, as was so popular in the 80’s and 90’s. These days, both aluminium and timber plantation shutters are much more versatile and can be custom fabricated to suit the most challenging and unique situations.

Bi-Folds, Fixed, Sliding and Bahama style shutters are all becoming increasingly popular as customers demand intensely unique solutions to a variety of spaces, not just their windows.


Here’s some great use of our Weatherwell shutters on balconies as an alternative to railings. Available in a range of standard and custom colours, it’s a great way to allow for both light and privacy on your balcony as required.



Bahama style shutters are a great way to block sunlight into room or area but still allow for an unobstructed view.


Covering only half your window in shutters is an interesting way to still allow large amounts of sunlight into your room but block annoying glare that can occur, ideal for home offices.


Fixed louvre shutters are an innovative method of blocking excess sunlight into large areas whilst still being aesthetically pleasing, as they often have far greater dimensional capacity than traditional shutters.


Consider incorporating shutters into your new fence. Not only are our Weatherwell Elite Aluminium shutters sturdy enough to ensure security, but they are also built with lockable blades so you can ensure your privacy whilst adding a unique focal point to your fence line.

Bold & Beautiful Shutters

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Adding the finishing touches to a home are undoubtedly the hardest choices, not only because they are so numerous but because they are often the most noticed and say the so much about you.

Shutters are undoubtedly the simplest way to add a touch of elegance and beauty to your home, but to often people assume that the classic white shutter is the only option available. Here at All Shutters we disagree! We encourage each of our customers to take an active, creative interest in ensuring that their window furnishings not only add beauty to a room, but are as bold as their owner.

All Shutters and Blinds Highprofile and Highprofile Elite timber shutters not only come in 5 different shades of white, they can also be custom coloured to your specification, giving you endless possibilities to be bold and impress!



Because black is always the new black.



Yellow shutters pair magnificently with the natural golden light of sunrise.



Another less conventional use for shutters is to use them instead of cupboard doors as seen here. The owners of this kitchen have done something unique and bold in both their use of shutters and the colour choice and the result speaks for itself!



Because what goes better with pink than pink!



Here a minimalist bathroom has been made extraordinary through the specific use of bold colour against a neutral background, accentuating both the shutters and the owner's style. 



Whether you want to keep it cool, or add some warmth. Shutters can be a simple yet effective way to change the tone of a room.



So why not give one of our expert consultants a call today and let us help you redefine your windows in a way you may not have thought possible.


Weatherwell Aluminium Shutters for Sun Protection

Sunday, January 11, 2015

We all know what it’s like to experience an Aussie summer, so it is no wonder that one of the fastest growing home project trends among homeowners is installing external aluminium shutters for protection against the harsh Aussie sun. Becoming ever popular among homeowners along the coastline, inner cities and suburbia, external aluminium shutters are designed to endure the toughest elements; controlling the entry of heat, UV rays and sunlight, allowing you to maximise your outdoor living experience in comfort.

Weatherwell aluminium shutters are designed for the exterior, combining cutting edge design with effective weather protection.


Suitable for outdoor pergolas, decks, patios, verandas and outdoor rooms such as outdoor kitchens and pool houses, these shutters provide ample shade, and control light, airflow and temperature, which is important to creating comfortable outdoor living areas.

“Sun-blocking screens help you stay cool, play with light and create a stunning modern exterior… since the location is on the exterior, it blocks the heat from the sun’s rays before they even hit the glass and enter the interior space, keeping your home cooler.” - Jen Dailey, Architect


External shutters not only provide flexibility in providing sought-after shade but also help to:

  • Lower home air-conditioning costs
  • Allow for airflow and ventilation, and
  • Protect exteriors

Unlike timber shutters, which can fade and crack from the affects of the sun over time, aluminium is built to withstand high temperatures and UV rays. Weatherwell external aluminium shutters require no maintenance, making them a popular choice for residential and commercial properties.

“In a sun-drenched climate, shade is essential in reducing the effects of heat on the home. Incorporating shade is a simple and cost-effective way to help keep your house cool year round.” - Planning services Special Project Unit, City of Townsville
