THE PLANTATION LIFE
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.
