Should I Put Wood Shutters in the Kitchen and Bathroom?

Shutters are beautiful and elegant window treatments that can add elegance and energy efficiency to your home. However, not all shutter materials are ideal for every room. If you’re thinking about redecorating your kitchen or bathroom with wood shutters in San Jose, then there are some things you should know before going ahead with this plan.

Wood shutters can be a great choice for many areas of your home, such as the living room, the dining room, and your bedrooms. However, for spaces that are prone to temperature changes and high humidity levels, like kitchens and bathrooms, wood shutters aren’t ideal. Wood absorbs moisture, so prolonged exposure to humidity may cause wood shutters to warp or rot. For this reason, you should avoid installing wood shutters in bathrooms and kitchens. As an alternative, consider choosing Polyclad shutters for these spaces, which have the look of wood but are made from a moisture-resistant, poly material.
