Bathroom Shutters

High moisture areas such as bathrooms are always a concern when adding any type of window treatment. But rest assured there are solutions. For example, Palm Beach™ Polysatin Shutters from Hunter Douglas are engineered to withstand moisture and are guaranteed for life not to warp, chip, crack, fade, or discolor. The shutters in the photo below complete the look of this newly renovated bathroom.

Combine draperies with shutters to soften the look!

Here I combined stationary drapery panels with custom stained shutters to complement this small family room space. The draperies in a soft velvety paisley fabric of oranges, teals, reds and cream complement this otherwise stark family room. I also used a combination of fabrics in the custom pillows to bring in additional color and texture.  The walls were painted a green to complement the fabrics throughout the room. Once a stark room, now a cozy space for the homeowners to enjoy for years to come! Designed by Terry Kral.

Custom finishes are also available as is remote control vane tilting. In this photo there are two shutter panels that bi-fold on the left side of the window and two that bi-fold on the right.
