5 Reasons to use Bathroom Window Shutters
1. They provide instant privacy
If there’s one room that really requires complete privacy, it’s the bathroom. While it’s pleasant to have the option for daylight when the room is not in use, you also need to ensure that the room can be screened from the outside view when required. Bathroom window shutters are the perfect solution, giving maximum privacy when the louvres are closed.
2. They are perfect for humid environments
Here at American Shutters, our water resistant shutters are a popular choice for bathrooms and wet rooms. Made from quality UPVC and finished with polyurethane paint for extra protection, we can guarantee they won’t warp or bend, however streamy your bathroom gets. And unlike curtains or wooden shutters, you won’t have to worry about any damage from the hot and humid conditions.
3. They make your bathroom feel like a spa
Bathroom window shutters are an undeniably sophisticated choice. They give an instant upgrade to your bathroom, elevating it to the feel of a stylish spa. Our white window shutters are the most popular choice for bathrooms and give a crisp, fresh feel to the room, but you can choose any paint shade to match your existing colour palette.
4. They are the hygienic choice
Our waterproof bathroom window shutters just need a quick wipe down to ensure your bathroom is kept spotlessly clean and germ-free. While curtains and drapes are prone to trapping moisture and harbouring germs, bathroom shutters are a hygienic alternative. Simple to maintain, they are easily disinfected to ensure a clean, sanitary environment for you and your family.
5. They help to regulate room temperature
You’ll find that your shutters for the bathroom are ideal for regulating temperature levels. No one likes a chilly bathroom, and window shutters provide excellent protection against cold draughts in the winter. The louvred shutters also allow you to let a cool breeze flow through the room on hot summer days, without any compromise on your privacy.

Bathroom shutter styles
Bathroom window shutters are a very fashionable choice in the UK, and you have many styles to choose from. We offer a variety of shutter styles to suit every home.
Many people choose full height shutters for the bathroom area. These full-length shutters will cover your windows completely, giving you maximum privacy as needed. You may want to consider the flexible option of tier on tier shutters, which will allow you to open the upper half of the shutters independently. This gives you even greater control over the amount of light and air entering the room. We don’t recommend our café style shutters for bathrooms. Only the lower half of the window is covered in this style, which reduces your overall privacy levels.
You can also choose between a traditional or more contemporary style of shutter. Our traditional shutter has classic louvres and a tilt rod that opens and closes the slats. You may prefer our more modern portabello shutter. This minimalist design has a hidden tilt mechanism for a clean, unfussy finish. In addition, you can choose from a wide range of louvre blade sizes, 64, 75, 89 or 114mm, to give you a perfect look for your home.
Plantation shutters for bathrooms
Window shutters, also known as plantation shutters, were originally fitted on the windows of large plantation houses in the Southern USA. Back then, the shutters were placed outside to protect against the heat and the sun. It’s not surprising to learn that plantation shutters were designed to cope with hot and humid climates, similar to the one you’ll find in the bathroom.
Shutters for the bath and shower room are fantastic at regulating temperature and humidity levels. The louvred shutters allow air to enter the room without compromising your privacy. This means you can enjoy a natural flow of air without worrying about onlookers. The slats also provide excellent protection from the sun and heat on hot days and keep the room warm and toasty in winter.
Bathroom window shutters maintenance
Waterproof bathroom window shutters are incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Made from quality UPVC, they can be wiped down effortlessly, leaving your bathroom space spotlessly clean and hygienic. Unlike curtains or drapes, which can trap moisture and harbour germs, shutters are the sanitary choice for every bathroom.
You’ll find your bathroom shutters are highly durable. As they are guaranteed not to warp or distort, you’ll find they stay looking good as new for years on end. And thanks to the protective polyurethane paint, they’re well protected against stains or damage. At American Shutters, we have happy customers who are still enjoying their shutters 20 years after they were first installed.
