Shutters are a great window covering for any kitchen; they’re brightening and can improve ventilation making the room feel open and breezy. With our Polyvinyl options, kitchen window shutters are a very practical choice and can withstand damp humid conditions, as well as being really easy to clean, making them a great choice for even the busiest of kitchens.
Waterproof Kitchen Shutters
Polyvinyl is a great option for your kitchen shutters, particularly if your windows are above the kitchen sink and are likely to be exposed to dampness or high humidity. Made from PVC these plantation shutters still look and feel like wood but will never shrink or warp making them durable in kitchen conditions. If you’d rather opt for wooden shutters, either to get the colour you want or because you want solid shutters, then these are suitable for the majority of kitchen windows, we will be happy to give you advice.
We would recommend choosing louvred window shutters for your kitchen, as the slats can be opened against an open window allowing air to flow through which is often needed when cooking a big meal. This can help remove strong smells and cools the kitchen down after the oven has been on for a long time.
In terms of shutter styles, café style shutters are a great choice for kitchens. The perks of café style shutters increase the amount of light coming into the kitchen, making the room brighter, and your kitchen a pleasant environment to be in.
