Practical and stylish window solutions for your bathroom
All too often people in the interiors industry focus on the parts of the home that have an instant impact. The living room or the kitchen for example, where you spend lots of time and, importantly, where you entertain family and friends too.
The bathroom, in comparison, is often ignored, leaving you short of inspirational ideas for this vital part of your home.
But that shouldn't be the case! Here at Hillarys we have some great products, purposely designed with bathrooms in mind, that combine practicality and style to great effect.
Let's start with the new Henley range that we've just added to our shutters collection. Hardwearing and supremely practical, these shutters are made from the same kind of material as crash helmets and kettles. So they're tough enough to withstand the steamy environment of a bathroom or wetroom and even a sauna or an indoor swimming if you have one of these! Available in white or cream finishes, this is the shutter we always recommend for bathrooms. Wood shutters in comparison may warp and so aren't ideal. They're also a tough and sturdy choice for frequently used doorways, while remaining super-stylish.
Our faux wood range called Wood Illusions is a great alternative to Wood Venetian blinds. Complete with a realistic wood grain finish, they're available in wood tones and painted finishes to suit a variety of styles. And they're perfectly practical too, able to withstand the steam of a bathroom while maintaining a fabulous appearance. But don't limit these blinds to certain parts of your home - with their regular grain pattern some people actually prefer the appearance of Wood Illusions to real Wood Venetian blinds. And they make a great alternative to Wood in playrooms and children's bedrooms as dirty fingerprints can simply be wiped away.
There are a few options within our Vertical blinds range that will suit a bathroom environment to a tee! Teflon coated and soft PVC fabrics can be wiped clean, while our rigid PVC Verticals offer a really interesting alternative that would even suit a wetroom. This style of blind will protect your modesty too, providing complete privacy when closed.
So don't neglect the windows in your bathroom. There are plenty of options that will help you create a fabulous environment to enjoy spending time in.
