Bathroom Window Treatments Have You Covered In Boston09/27/2015Holly Perron Whether you’re taking a shower at the end of the day or washing your face in the morning, bathroom privacy is essential - especially when there’s a window in the room. For those of us living near neighbors in the Boston area, there are a handful of choices in bathroom window treatments to keep curious eyes away. Shutters 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 easily 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 guarantees they never warp or crack. When properly maintained, they can last over 50 years and still look as charming as the day you had them installed. When closed, the shutters insulate against the weather outside. Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than the comparable 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 considering the variety of frame styles, shapes, and custom colors, Polywood shutters make for perfect bathroom shutters in any Boston home. Blinds & Shades When Bay Stater homeowners ask us if they should keep their blinds and shades in their bathrooms or replace them, we ask them 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 in the market for a cheap window treatment solution 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 Boston we’ve met are interested in a bathroom window treatment that provides them ultimate privacy and more. They’re looking for a window treatment that can weather 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 craft 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 experts can design window treatments that mirror 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 Bay Staters can’t resist buying bathroom shutters that look charming day after day. Are Your Bathroom Windows Covered?
