Having the right window treatment in your home bathroom can make all the difference in terms of comfort and utility. When considering a home decor renovation for the bathroom, you might not think of the windows as being a particularly important part of the project. And yet choosing the appropriate treatment and a good hot water system can add considerable value to your home.
Not all window treatments are right for the home bathroom. Curtains often wilt or develop mold in the steamy atmosphere, and the fabric can prove to be unwieldy or awkward. Blinds are difficult to clean, and often buckle in the heat of repeated showers or baths. A perennial favorite, shades offer limited functionality, failing to meet the needs of the average homeowner.

Shutters are the perfect solution for homeowners seeking a long-term window treatment installation for their home bathroom. Bathroom shutters offer durability, functionality and aesthetic value, significantly adding to your comfort level. In addition, well-installed shutters can increase the market value of your home..
Most window treatments offer limited functionality in terms of light control, leaving you without a reliable way to block out or increase the sunlight in your bathroom. Shutters, on the other hand, provide tremendous flexibility in this regard. With adjustable slats that can be left at several angles, you can enjoy as much or as little sunlight as you wish.

In addition to the freedom to manage light, shutters offer unparalleled privacy options to homeowners with a range of privacy needs. Unlike other window treatments, shutters allow for an uninterrupted stream of sunlight while simultaneously blocking your bathroom from public view. You can also choose to have shutters installed only on the lower half of your bathroom window, providing privacy while ensuring a bright and sunny room.
Shutters are the best option for home bathroom window treatments when it comes to durability, too. Draperies, blinds and shades can warp or mildew in the high-humidity environment of the bathroom, causing problems with odor and light or privacy control and forcing you to replace them frequently. Shutters, on the other hand, are made from durable vinyl or wood and are often 100% waterproof, making them perfect for the home bathroom.
If you like a fresh-smelling and airy bathroom, shutters are the best choice as well. With shutters, you can ventilate your bathroom easily while simultaneously preserving your privacy. By opening the window and closing or adjusting the slats, air will circulate freely around the room. This helps when using harsh cleaning chemicals and also gives the room a fresher feel.
Shutters are easy to clean and maintain, making them a clear win over draperies, blinds or shades. The slats wipe clean with a quick swipe of a wet cloth, ensuring that your bathroom remains hygienic and pleasant to use. Over the long run, your shutters will last much longer than other window treatments, saving you money on home renovation.
