Why Choose Shutters for the Bathroom?

Dressing a bathroom window presents unique challenges, with constraints on colour choices, shape, and size. Moreover, material options are limited due to the environment of a bathroom, where moisture-laden air can deteriorate fabrics like cotton, silk, velvet, or wool.

Plantation Shutters – Bathroom Window Coverings

Plantation Shutters in the bathroom are often the best choice for many reasons:

  • Professionally built and installed shutters ensure 100% coverage, providing optimal privacy.
  • Adjusting the angle of the shutter louvres makes it easy to control the amount of light entering the bathroom.
  • Enjoy precise control over the level of light in your bathroom with plantation shutters.
  • Opt for plantation shutters made from water-resistant materials for durability.
  • The use of water-resistant plantation shutters enhances their longevity compared to other window coverings.
  • Experience easier cleaning and maintenance with plantation shutters, surpassing the convenience of blinds or fabric curtains.
  • Personalize your bathroom with plantation shutters, offering a wide array of colour options.

The Advantages of Using Plantation Shutters in Your Bathroom

Installing shutters in your bathroom not only adds ‘Old-World Charm’ to your space but also allows small amounts of natural light even when the window is closed. Considering the bathroom’s moist environment, it’s advisable to avoid wood shutters and opt for easily maintainable and cleanable vinyl or plastic products, with ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) being the ideal material due to its water-resistant properties.

This robust material is suitable for various wet areas in a house, including bathrooms, kitchens, and indoor swimming pools. Its water-resistant nature ensures minimal damage, even when fully submerged, making it an ideal choice for a conservatory, Jacuzzi bath, and shower room shutters.

One of the standout features of water-resistant plantation shutters is their minimal water absorption, providing resilience even in wet conditions. This resilience means that regardless of steam levels, your bathroom plantation shutters remain largely unaffected. Managing privacy and ventilation is easy with these shutters, allowing you to open the bathroom window for fresh air without exposing the space to onlookers.

Installation of Plantation Shutters for the Bathroom

Most of the time, shutters work best with bathroom windows that are not flush to the surrounding walls. Depending on the window’s size you may have to order custom-built shutters. This is particularly the case if you live in an older home. Once you receive new shutters you can install them directly to the window’s frame.

Of course, we recommend having your blinds installed by a professional. Get in touch with us today to get your bathroom windows fitted with the perfect shutters.
