Bathroom Window Treatments Have You Covered In New York City

Whether you’re taking a shower at night or washing your face in the morning, bathroom privacy matters - especially when there’s a window in the room. For those of us living a short distance from neighbors in the New York City area, there are a few styles in bathroom window treatments to keep curious eyes away.


Plantation shutters are permanently mounted on the bathroom window, providing you with the security that every inch of the window is covered. The louvers of the shutters can be tilted to bring in more light as needed. But the best part about them isn’t that you can open and close these bathroom shutters easily with a tilt rod. It’s that Polywood plantation shutters can weather through the humidity and temperature circumstances that a hot shower develops.

Actually, Polywood shutters are manufactured from a composite material that ensures they never warp or crack. When properly cared for, they can last more than 50 years and still look as beautiful as the day you had them installed.

When closed, the shutters shield against the weather outside. Polywood shutters insulate up to 70% better than the equivalent wood shutter. This makes getting ready a pleasant experience every morning: never too hot, never too cold when you walk in.

Whether you have a small window above the toilet or a large one above the bathtub, plantation shutters can be custom designed to fit any window size and shape. And with the variety of frame styles, shapes, and custom colors, Polywood shutters make for elegant bathroom shutters in any New York City home.

Blinds & Shades

When New Yoker homeowners ask us if it’s worth it to keep their blinds and shades in their bathrooms or replace them, we try to find out what their priorities in this room are. Do they want a bathroom window treatment that prevents outsiders from looking in? Not all blinds and shades can do that for them. Are they in the market for a cheap window treatment solution for the short term? Most blinds and shades would be within their budget. They’re even available in an array of styles and options.

But most homeowners in New York City we’ve met are looking for a bathroom window treatment that allows them ultimate privacy and more. They’re looking for a window treatment that can withstand the moisture in the bathroom, is a breeze to clean, doesn’t need to be replaced regularly, and doesn’t hide a special shaped circle window. Blinds and shades are not the best solution for that. That’s why we offer bathroom shutters.

We can custom fashion plantation shutters to fit your bathroom window perfectly. This means that for bathroom windows shaped like a circle, an arch, an octagon, or a triangle, our specialists can design window treatments that complement every corner and curve while keeping the architecture intact.

And your investment in these shutters today means reduced energy bills tomorrow. Those savings are another reason why New Yorkers can’t resist buying bathroom shutters that look beautiful day after day.
