We also have shutters that are designed to withstand the harsh and often humid environment of a bathroom, providing a durable and longlasting window coverage solution that will look smart and tidy for many years to come – a worthwhile investment of time and money. Here is an overview of the best types of bathroom shutters to help you decide on the best window dressing solution for your home…
It goes without saying that waterproof shutters are ideal for bathrooms. Made from ABS plastic, our waterproof shutters cope well with the wet and humid environment of a bathroom, are hard wearing and are very easy to wipe clean.
Full Height Shutters
Full height shutters are perfect for bathrooms that are overlooked and need lots of privacy. Covering the window from top to bottom, full height shutters provide full screening of the window when the louvres are closed, but when the louvres are open, partial privacy is achieved and more light can enter the room.
Tracked shutters are a good option for a bathroom with large windows or one that isn’t overlooked. They can also be good for dark bathrooms that require some extra light. Mounted on a track, these shutters can be pulled to the side to open up the window completely to let lots of light into the bathroom when it is not in use. For complete privacy, simply pull the shutters shut and close the louvres.
Tier-on-tier shutters provide you with the largest range of coverage options for your bathroom windows. Keep the shutters completely open for lots of light when the bathroom is not in use, close the bottom tier of shutters if you want part privacy or shut the shutters completely for full coverage. Tier-on-tier shutters are best suited to tall bathroom windows where you can keep the top tier open without exposing the room.
Whether you have round, triangular or arched bathroom windows, shaped shutters are custom made to fit your window frame perfectly, giving you excellent screening. Shaped shutters work in exactly the same way as standard full height shutters so you can control the level of light and privacy by tilting the louvres as required.
