Synthetic Plantation Shutters for Your Bathroom

November 2, 2011

When redecorating the bathrooms in your home there are certain things to consider that don’t apply to the other rooms in your home. For instance, when choosing the paint for your bathroom, it’s best to choose a paint specifically made for bathrooms. These paints will resist moisture so that you won’t have to deal with peeling paint or mold. Similarly, when choosing window treatments for a bathroom you want to choose something that can withstand steam and moisture.

Synthetic Plantation Shutters Resist Moisture

Thermalite Shutters from Danmer Custom Shutters have the look and feel of hardwood shutters, but are water resistant making them great for environments like the kitchen and bathroom.

Also sometimes referred to as jalousies or louvers, a plantation shutter is typically made from wood and mounted into a solid frame. Unlike the type of shutters usually used in cooler climates, these are interior blinds made from broad slats of wood.  A plantation shutter can be made to fit any size or shape or window, and the right custom installer should also be able to provide choices in different types, shades and colors of wood.  While these shutters can be opened to allow a sufficient amount of ventilation, they still provide shade and a measure of privacy at the control of the homeowner.

The design of the plantation shutter has been around since before the Middle Ages, but new innovations makes this type of window shade much easier to use. In days past the plantation shutter was typically used without glass, and still these shutters were able to keep those who used them cool and shaded even during the summer months. In present times, this shutter can help reduce costs for air condition, and heating. In the winter the wooden shutters help prevent a cold glass window from chilling a room.
