What Makes Shutters a Good Choice for Bathrooms?

There are several key features that make bathroom shutters particularly suitable. They are easy to measure and install (just see our handy guides), they’re affordable, they’re great for privacy, and they are easy to wipe down and keep clean. On top of all that, our shutters come with a 5-year warranty, AND they’re incredibly long lasting. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful bathroom window shutters for years to come. Oh, and did we mention that they look fantastic? Maybe we did, but it’s worth mentioning again.

Materials Are Important

So long as your room is well ventilated, all our shutter materials are suitable for bathrooms. Both our Essential Hybrawood and Natural Hardwood shutters are great for bathrooms, providing that they are not directly exposed to water.  However, if your bathroom shutters are going to be coming into direct contact with water, or the room is unventilated, we would advise going for our Waterproof Polyvinyl Shutters. PVC gives the same appearance as wood and being made from PVC means that they won’t split or warp when exposed to water. Waterproof bathroom shutters are also ideal for wet rooms, saunas, and some kitchens.

Don’t Forget About Style

Whether it’s in a living room, bedroom, kitchen, or otherwise, the first things to consider when it comes to window dressings are what levels of light and privacy you are happy with. For bathroom shutters it is no different, and there are a couple of styles which we would recommend. Café style shutters cover the lower portion of your window only, ensuring that the maximum amount of light possible can come into the room – while still affording you the privacy that comes with shutters. Another great option is our full height shutters. Our most popular bathroom window shutters, they cover the entire window, ensuring high levels of privacy and adding a touch of class to proceedings. And what’s more, they work on any size window.

What about colour?

When it comes to bathroom shutters, white is by far and away the most common colour. Luckily, we have a range of whites and creams on offer. However, if you’re going for something a bit more distinctive, we also have several shades of grey. For a more textured look, our natural hardwood shutters come in a range of wood stains and limewash finishes, too. You can also order some samples by clicking on the link below.
