Great Ideas Using Custom Interior Shutters in Bathrooms
What are the Best Window Treatments for Bathrooms?
With so many options out there for your bathroom windows, the best kind of window treatments are those that are durable, long lasting, and provide privacy while elegantly complementing any Boston home’s decor. Custom interior shutters are the perfect combination of style and functionality for both standard shaped bathroom windows, and non-traditional windows like circular and arched windows. Interior shutters have the added option for motorization. For the extra busy household on a schedule, motorized interior shutters can be programmed to close in the mornings for privacy during high usage periods, and open later in the day to let sunlight in.
What is the Best Material for Interior Shutters?
With the advancements in craftsmanship and technology, the best type of material for your custom interior shutters depends only on what the homeowner prefers. Interior shutters can be made of premium hardwood, polysatin, or hybrid compounds. All of these materials provide the same basic functionalities while increasing the value of your home. For rooms with high humidity and moisture present like bathrooms, faux wood interior shutters work very well.
Hardwood custom interior shutters give a timeless classic look to any window and the perfect choice for any uniquely shaped window that needs window treatments for privacy and light control. Crafted with premium hardwood, choose from a selection of over 50+ stains, paints, and finishes that create durable long-lasting window treatments.
Custom interior shutters made from vinyl or polysatin are a cost effective alternative to the classic hardwood shutters. This material resists water damage and daily exposure to direct moisture doesn’t cause warping, cracking or chipping. Polysatin interior shutters extend the life of your window treatments without warping, splintering, or discoloration, and they are easy to clean.
Can you Put Wood Shutters in a Bathroom?

Custom interior shutters made of hardwood are a beautiful window treatment option for an elegant bathroom décor. As long as the room is well ventilated and water doesn’t directly contact the wood shutters, the bonded structure and finish coatings will prevent warping and discoloration for years. Hardwood shutters from Hunter Douglas are preconditioned to compliment the climate and moisture levels in which they will be installed. This extra step prevents excess swelling and shrinking of the wood after installation.
However, for interior shutters next to showers or above sinks, polysatin interior shutters are a great option. They are impervious to water damage and will last for many years with minimal maintenance. In addition, interior shutters are easy to clean!
