Louvre Control

Timber plantation shutters provide excellent control over sunlight and privacy in your home by adjusting the louvres to your desired angle. Amaru offers various options for the window louvre control arm's placement, from panel centre, side or completely hidden from view.

Angling the wooden louvres during the day allows you to control the amount and direction of sunlight in a room while still maintaining natural ventilation and privacy.

Closing louvre shutters completely at night will block most of the light coming in or out of your home, as well as provide complete privacy and improved insulation.

Made with kiln-dried hardwood these shutters are suitable for most wet areas like bathrooms, kitchen and laundry.

FAQs about Timber Shutters

Expand all
Do wood window shutters warp or chip easily?

Not easily, but timber being a natural product can potentially warp especially if the shutters are exposed to high humidity or dramatic fluctuations in temperature. Amaru uses quality hardwood that has been kiln-dried to reduce the moisture content, correct milling techniques and premium finishing systems to dramatically reduce the chance if you buy our timber shutters that they will warp, shrink or split. Should your shutter paint get chipped, it can be easily touched up.

How long after I place my order will my shutters be installed?

After visiting your home and measuring your windows and selecting your window covering style and finish, your Amaru décor consultant will quote our best timber shutters price. Once you place your order we will mill, manufacture and finish your shutters to your exact specifications before one of ourreliable trade qualified installers returns to fit them. It takes time to craft quality so allow approximately 6 – 8 weeks from the time you place your order to installation.

What areas do you service?

Amaru have custom timber shutters for salein both Melbourne and Canberra. We have showrooms in both Melbourne and Canberra or you can book an in-home measure and quote for Melbourne Metro & Surrounds - including the Mornington Peninsula and Canberra & Surrounds.

How do I care for my shutters?

To maintain your interior timber shutters and keep them looking their best regularly dust the louvres with a static or feather duster to remove surface dust. Run the duster across starting at the topmost slat to bottom.


Do not use bleach or harsh detergents on white or painted timber shutters, if you notice any marks these can be spot cleaned using a lightly damp micro fibre cloth and a mild detergent made for cleaning painted surfaces.


For natural timber shutters condition the wood with a light coat of beeswax furniture polish twice a year.


For external wooden shutters periodically gently hose off surface dust and debris, do not use a high pressure washer as this can damage the wood and strip off the finish. If your outdoor timber shutters have become coated with thick layer of dirt, this can be removed with a lightly damp micro fibre cloth and a mild detergent made for cleaning painted surfaces.
