Whether you’re taking a shower at night or washing your face before work, bathroom privacy is important - especially when there’s a window in the room. For those of us living a short distance from neighbors in the Chicago area, there are a couple of options in bathroom window treatments to keep curious eyes away.
Plantation shutters are permanently mounted on the bathroom window, providing you with the security that every inch of the window is covered. The louvers of the shutters can be tilted to bring in more light as needed. But the best part about them isn’t that you can open and close these bathroom shutters effortlessly with a tilt rod. It’s that Polywood plantation shutters can weather through the humidity and temperature circumstances that a hot shower develops.
In fact, Polywood shutters are made from a composite material that ensures they never warp or crack. When properly maintained, 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 similar 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.
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 with the variety of frame styles, shapes, and custom colors, Polywood shutters make for elegant bathroom shutters in any Chicago home.
Blinds & Shades
When Chicagoan homeowners ask us if they should keep their blinds and shades in their bathrooms or replace them, we break down their options based on 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 looking for a cheap window treatment option 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 Chicago we’ve met want a bathroom window treatment that allows them maximum privacy and more. They’re looking for a window treatment that can withstand the moisture in the bathroom, is easy 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 option for that. That’s why we recommend 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 professionals can design window treatments that complement 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 Chicagoans can’t resist purchasing bathroom shutters that look beautiful day after day.
