Window Furnishing

What are the best window coverings for wet areas?

When it comes to selecting window coverings for wet areas of your home that are exposed to moisture or prone to dampness, such as bathrooms, laundries, kitchens, and outdoor kitchens, it’s crucial to choose materials that not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the space but also withstand the conditions in which they’re installed. Fusion Shutters and Blinds offers a range of stylish, durable, and moisture-resistant window covering solutions perfect for these wet areas. Let’s explore the best options and understand why they’re ideal window coverings for wet areas.

Polymer Plantation Shutters: A Stylish Statement for Wet Areas

Polymer plantation shutters are an excellent choice for laundries, bathrooms, and kitchens. Crafted from high-quality, water-resistant materials, these shutters are designed to withstand the rigors of wet areas, housing an aluminium core that provides increased strength and durability without warping, cracking, or peeling. Their sleek and elegant design adds a touch of sophistication to any space, while their functionality ensures privacy and light control. Cleaning is also a breeze; a simple wipe is all that’s needed to keep these shutters looking their best, no harsh chemicals required!

Roller Blinds: Versatile and Practical

For a modern and minimalist look, roller blinds in 100% polyester or sunscreen fabrics are another fantastic option for wet areas exposed to moisture. These blinds are designed to provide adequate light control and privacy and when teamed with the right fabric, will resist moisture and prevent mold and mildew growth, making them perfect for bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens. With an expansive range of colours, textures, pelmets, chains, and bottom rails, the combinations are almost endless when it comes to tailoring your roller blinds, and with the fabrics being durable and easy to maintain- requiring only a quick sponge clean to remove any dirt, dust or moisture- they still remain an incredibly popular and affordable choice among homeowners.

PVC Venetian Blinds: Classic Elegance with a Twist

PVC Venetian blinds are a timeless choice that works beautifully in wet and damp environments. Fusion Shutters and Blinds offers high-quality PVC Venetian blinds that mimic the look of traditional wood while providing the added benefit of moisture resistance. These blinds are ideal for bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens, where humidity and water exposure can damage natural wood. Also easy to clean with just a simple wipe down, these blinds offer a low-maintenance solution that doesn’t compromise on style.

Aluminium Shutters: The Ultimate Solution for Outdoor Kitchens

For outdoor kitchens where all weather conditions- rain, hail or shine- are a consideration, aluminium shutters are the go-to choice. These shutters combine durability with elegance, providing a practical solution that can withstand exposure to the elements. Aluminium is naturally resistant to rust and corrosion, making it perfect for outdoor environments where moisture is a constant. Fusion Shutters and Blinds offers aluminium shutters that are not only functional but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your outdoor space, with 5 standard colours in a matte or satin finish and 3 wood look colours to choose from. Like the other options, these shutters are easy to maintain and require only a simple cleaning with a cloth or gentle hose down, ensuring they remain a stunning feature of your outdoor kitchen for years to come.

Fusion Shutters and Blinds offers a range of moisture-resistant window coverings that are perfect for these wet areas.
