Whether you’re taking a shower in the evening or washing your face before work, bathroom privacy is key - especially with a window in the room. For those of us living close to neighbors in the Austin area, there are a handful of choices in bathroom window treatments to keep curious eyes away.
Plantation shutters are permanently mounted on the bathroom window, giving you the security that every inch of the window is covered. The louvers of the shutters can be tilted to allow more light in as needed. But the best part about them isn’t that you can open and close these bathroom shutters conveniently with a tilt rod. It’s that Polywood plantation shutters can withstand the humidity and temperature environment that a hot shower develops.
Actually, Polywood shutters are fashioned from a composite material that makes sure they never warp or crack. When properly cared for, they can last 50+ years and still look as beautiful as the day you had them installed.
When closed, the shutters protect against the weather outside. Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than the comparable wood shutter. This makes the time you spend in the bathroom in the morning pleasant: never too hot, never too cold when you walk in.
Whether you have a small window above the toilet or a large one above the bathtub, plantation shutters can be custom designed to fit any window size and shape. And when you consider the variety of frame styles, shapes, and custom colors, Polywood shutters make for beautiful bathroom shutters in any Austin home.
Blinds & Shades
When Austinite homeowners ask us if it’s best to keep their blinds and shades in their bathrooms or replace them, we try to find out what their priorities in this room are. Do they want a bathroom window treatment that blocks outsiders from looking in? Not all blinds and shades fit that bill. Are they looking for a cheap window treatment alternative for the short term? Most blinds and shades would be within their budget. They’re even available in a selection of styles and options.
But most homeowners in Austin we’ve met are interested in a bathroom window treatment that gives them ultimate privacy and more. They’re looking for a window treatment that can withstand the moisture in the bathroom, is a piece of cake to clean, doesn’t need to be replaced regularly, and doesn’t hide a special shaped circle window. Blinds and shades are not the best treatment for that. That’s why we recommend bathroom shutters.
We can custom manufacture plantation shutters to fit your bathroom window seamlessly. This means that for bathroom windows shaped like a circle, an arch, an octagon, or a triangle, our specialists can design window treatments that mirror every corner and curve while keeping the architecture intact.
And your investment in these shutters today means lower energy bills tomorrow. Those savings are another reason why Austinites can’t resist having bathroom shutters that look beautiful day after day.
