    We paid (Brisbane) about $700(ish) maybe a bit more per window. Expensive, but double up as security, and look classy.

    Ours look the same as wood, but they fit the Australian standard as a security device, which wood would never do. They are expensive though.

    I had some put in the granny flat, at the curtain ladies recommendation, I really wanted curtains. Cost about a thousand a room for two casement windows per room. You can open the top half and manipulate the light etc, not wood but some composite material. Bliss, you just wipe them straight over with a damp cloth, I absolutely love them.

    If your at all handy I've had good feedback on iseekblinds.com.au
    Have to put a flat pack together and screw to the window surrounds but around $300/m for basswood.

    My mate does plantation shutters. What area are you in? I can give you his number if you want.
