How Waterproof Are Shutters?


Have you thoughout about how waterproof your furnishings are? It is very important when considering window treatments for your bathroom, toilet and kitchen to select something which is not only beautiful but also functional: this is where shutters really come into their own as they can be crafted from a range of waterproof materials.

Irrespective of whether you have a modern or period home, both bathroom and kitchen are both areas where you will spend a lot of time and of course, if you are selling your house we all know that it is these rooms which will sell a property.

With today’s preference for white bathroom suites and high-gloss kitchen units, finding the perfect window coverings can be problematic. You will want something that will give you privacy and light control as well as look amazing. But of course, these areas are also prone to both damp and humidity.

What to Look For

Purchasing plantation shutters is an investment, so you need to be sure that you are buying from a reliable supplier who will not only be able to measure your windows accurately, but can fit them correctly.

Any window treatment that is poorly fitted will destroy the look of your room and in the end will prove to be costly and time consuming; far better to get the professionals in straight away. You will expect your shutters to last a long time, so your guarantee should provide you with assurances that you are buying good quality. Cheap shutters will warp quickly in a humid atmosphere and should be avoided.

The louvres also come in different sizes, from 47mm up to 114mm, allowing you to choose exactly how much light and privacy you need and also the design which will suit your room best.

You may want to create that ‘New England’ look with your white bathroom suite and whitewashed wooden floor, or perhaps an ultra-modern look in a high-tech kitchen; whatever your reasons shutters are by far the best solution.

The Java range are of such high quality, that it is difficult to see that they are made of plastic and the waterproof paint gives that additional layer of protection in steamy or moist rooms. They will take the hardest of knocks and because they are made from ABS, they are much more robust than say MDF which are not suitable for humid rooms as they will warp.

Waterproof internal window shutters will make your rooms look very special while also being incredibly practical.
