No! Traditional shutters are made from real wood, which is durable and beautiful but can be damaged if exposed to water or humidity. However, waterproof shutters are available – and they are just as durable and beautiful as wooden shutters. In fact, they are almost identical to their wooden counterparts.
Traditional plantation shutters are created in a high-quality solid wood and are available in a range of colours. Wooden shutters offer thermal protection and minimise noise pollution. Plus, they look incredibly stylish and complement any style of décor.
Wooden shutters are available as Full Height Shutters, Tier on Tier Shutters, Café Style Shutters, Solid Panel Shutters, Tracked Shutters, Shaped Shutters and Blackout Shutters.
All of which allow you to control the light and privacy levels in your home. Some styles offer more versatility and flexibility than others. There is a guide to the various styles of shutters here.
Waterproof shutters offer all the amazing benefits of wooden shutters, only they are manufactured from a high-grade ABS plastic. They have been designed specifically for rooms where high moisture, condensation, high humidity or splashes of water may be present.
These lightweight yet sturdy waterproof shutters are 100% waterproof – making them perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, wet rooms and swimming pools.
Just like their wooden counterparts, waterproof shutters have been designed to last. They will withstand the wear and tear of a busy home and will look sophisticated in any setting.
Most shutter styles, including Full Height Shutters, Tier on Tier Shutters, Café Style Shutters, Shaped Shutters are available in the waterproof material.
Shutters, in general, tend to be more expensive than other window dressings, such as blinds or curtains. But that is because you are paying for quality and longevity. Unlike blinds and curtains, shutters will last for years to come, plus you won’t have to replace them when you re-decorate.
If you’re thinking about investing in waterproof shutters for your home, these benefits may help you make your decision.
