Poplar is an extremely dense hardwood, and is therefore suitable for placement outdoors for that authentic plantation shutter appearance. Poplar is extremely resistant to expanding and contracting in extreme temperatures, and as such have been a particularly popular choice for plantation shutters in Melbourne, where we famously have “four seasons in one day”. Your poplar shutters from Us will represent these desirable qualities, as well as providing your home with a distinctly rustic feel.

Plantation shutters made out of the extremely tough poplar wood have a long shelf life, and adequate maintenance will allow them to stand the test of time. Poplar also has a natural sheen, allowing it to be perfectly displayed in a wide variety of colours which will be shown in their radiant beauty. Poplar wood also possesses very tight-knit timber grain, and as such can be perfectly integrated with a wide variety of varnishes and veneers.
The sturdiness, strength and noticeable hard texture of poplar is perfectly suited for it to be used on more older style homes, such as those that emerged from the Victorian period era of architecture. They can often add a more antiquated appearance to the building itself – further reinforcing the rustic approach – and as a result are particularly popular with period era homeowners, looking to add both value to their property and attractive aesthetics to their home.
