Choosing what type of window furnishing is right for your bathroom is a major decision. Regardless of the room, your window furnishing selection has a major impact on the interior of your home. Due to its versatile aesthetic and impressive functionality, plantation shutters are an excellent choice for furnishing most rooms and are often requested by our clients for various areas of their homes. But how do they function in a bathroom?
Plantation shutters can overcome many bathroom issues
Bathrooms can be quite difficult to furnish. Here are a few reasons why:
- It is a high moisture environment.
- Privacy is mandatory.
- Air ventilation is a necessity.
While there are a lot of issues to overcome, homeowners also want to select an option that provides a tranquil but modern aesthetic. Your bathroom is your sanctuary and should be furnished with elements that are durable and aesthetically pleasing.
Plantation shutters are uniquely qualified to be the best option for bathrooms in Sydney. In this article, we’ll outline why they are suitable and what you can expect when you install plantation shutters from Empire Window Furnishings.
4 reasons why our plantation shutters are the best choice for any bathroom
- Moisture and humidity resistant
It’s no secret that Sydney has high humidity and poor infrastructure which both contribute to the growth of mould. During winter, humidity becomes an even bigger problem as homeowners shut their windows and doors, which reduce air ventilation and provide the perfect atmosphere for mould and mildew growth. As you can imagine, bathrooms suffer terribly as steam from showers and exhaust from dryers exacerbate these conditions.
Mould can often be found on your bathroom windows. This is not only unsightly and unclean, but it’s also incredibly harmful to your health. The plantation shutters from Empire Window Furnishings are made with materials that are resistant to moisture and humidity, preventing the growth of mould and other bacteria. In addition to avoiding this, humidity and moisture resistant shutters require less maintenance and last longer, improving the value of your investment.
- Provide directed air ventilation
As mentioned before, a bathroom in Sydney is prone to mould and mildew growth. While our plantation shutters are resistant to humidity and moisture the rest of your bathroom may not be, leaving it vulnerable to mould and mildew growth.
One of the best combatants for mould and mildew is air ventilation. Good ventilation helps to circulate new, clean air and helps it move throughout the bathroom and prevents allergens. It also helps to dry moist areas of your bathroom and prevent them from harbouring mould.
Plantation shutters, like almost any window furnishing on the market, provide excellent ventilation. However, its unique advantage is in its configuration. The shutters’ open louvre blades facilitate cross ventilation which is much more effective for filling your bathroom with natural air. Additionally, you can keep your plantation shutters open throughout the day as it is secure, prevents prying eyes from looking into your bathroom and does not allow rain to enter inside your home. This provides peace of mind and allows you to keep your bathroom well ventilated at any time of the day.
- Guarantee privacy
Privacy is an important quality of any bathroom. Whether you have neighbours who live too close to you, or your bathroom window faces a busy street, feeling safe in your bathroom is of the utmost importance.
Unlike most window furnishings, our plantation shutters can provide total privacy without the need for additional blinds or window curtains. If you want natural light or some air ventilation while you’re using the bathroom and require privacy, you can tilt the louvre slats to avoid anyone’s direct line of sight. Our plantation shutters also minimise noise pollution, so that you can enjoy a peaceful and quiet shower.
