Whether you’re taking a shower at the end of the day or washing your face in the morning, bathroom privacy is key - especially when there’s a window in the room. For those of us living close to neighbors in the Philadelphia area, there are a few styles 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 let in more light 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 endure the humidity and temperature environment that a hot shower develops.
As a matter of fact, Polywood shutters are fashioned from a composite material that guarantees they never warp or crack. When properly maintained, they can last 50+ years and still look as elegant 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 equivalent wood shutter. This makes getting ready a pleasant experience every morning: never too hot, never too cold when you walk in.
It doesn’t matter if 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 elegant bathroom shutters in any Philadelphia home.
Blinds & Shades
When Pennsylvanian 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 stops outsiders from looking in? Not all blinds and shades can do that for them. Are they interested in a cheap window treatment solution for the short term? Most blinds and shades would be within their budget. They’re even available in an array of styles and options.
But most homeowners in Philadelphia we’ve met are interested in a bathroom window treatment that allows them ultimate privacy and more. They’re looking for a window treatment that can weather the moisture in the bathroom, is easy to clean, doesn’t need to be replaced often, and doesn’t hide a special shaped circle window. Blinds and shades are not the best treatment for that. That’s why we offer bathroom shutters.
We can custom fashion plantation shutters to fit your bathroom window perfectly. This means that for bathroom windows shaped like a circle, an arch, an octagon, or a triangle, our specialists can design window treatments that accentuate every corner and curve while keeping the architecture intact.
And your investment in these shutters today means actual savings on energy bills tomorrow. Those savings are another reason why Pennsylvanians can’t resist buying bathroom shutters that look charming day after day.
