While it is pos­si­ble to have cur­tains in wet rooms such as bath­rooms, plan­ta­tion shut­ters can con­trol light and pri­vacy at the same time.

“Any rooms where mois­ture is a fac­tor, such as a bath­room or kitchen, should avoid fab­ric cov­er­ings,” says Lux­aflex Win­dow Fash­ions na­tional mar­ket­ing man­ager Jenny Brown, who adds fab­ric can be­come damp and mouldy over time.

“You are also able to achieve pre­cise con­trol of light and pri­vacy with shut­ters, al­low­ing nat­u­ral light in while main­tain­ing the pri­vacy re­quired in a bath­room by po­si­tion­ing the lou­vres to suit your de­sired view.”

Prod­ucts such as the Lux­aflex PolySatin shut­ters (pic­tured) are wa­ter re­sis­tant and won’t blis­ter, peel, fade or cor­rode.

“On top of this, they are vir­tu­ally main­te­nance free and can be eas­ily wiped down or re­moved and washed with a hose,” says Jenny.

Plan­ta­tion shut­ters are not only suited to bath­rooms, they are also a pop­u­lar win­dow cov­er­ing in other rooms where you’re look­ing for pri­vacy and light con­trol.
