Your guide to wet rooms: the best shutters for kitchens & bathrooms

Read time: 3 mins

Choosing the perfect shutters for wet rooms like kitchens and bathrooms can be a real challenge. These rooms are exposed to moisture, steam, and occasional splashes of water (or whatever’s sizzling in the kitchen), which can quickly and easily damage conventional timber shutters. 


Plus, these spaces often require frequent cleaning, so your shutters need to be durable enough to withstand regular maintenance. 

With all these variables in mind, one material stands out as the clear winner: PVC shutters. Made from polyvinyl chloride, a high-strength thermoplastic, PVC shutters are moisture-resistant and have a natural timber look — minus the price tag and maintenance requirements. 

Let’s dive into why PVC shutters are the best option for kitchens and bathrooms.

Why PVC shutters are the best option for kitchens & bathrooms

PVC 3 1

PVC shutters are undoubtedly the best window furnishing option for kitchens and bathrooms. Their water resistance, durability, ease of maintenance, and versatile style make them a practical and stylish choice for any home. 

Cost-effective 

Thanks to the low material and manufacturing costs, PVC shutters are far more affordable than their timber and aluminium counterparts. Despite the lower cost, PVC offers superior performance in wet and high-humidity conditions, making it a cost-effective solution for homeowners looking to upgrade their bathroom and kitchen window shutters without breaking the bank.

Moisture resistance & durability 

Unlike timber and fabric options, PVC shutters do not warp, crack, or develop mould when exposed to moisture. Whether it’s steam from a hot shower or splashes from a kitchen sink, PVC shutters will remain unaffected. 

Plus, PVC shutters are double-coated with paint for extra durability, ensuring they last longer and provide maximum value for money. 

Easy maintenance 

Cleaning PVC shutters is a breeze; you don’t have to be as careful as you would be with conventional timber shutters, as PVC can be wiped down with a damp cloth — no special cleaning solutions or techniques are required. 

Design versatility 

Our PVC shutters come in various colours and finishes, allowing you to choose an option that complements your decor. Whether you prefer a sleek, modern look or a more traditional style, we can create a set of shutters to match your taste.

Their clean lines and adjustable slats also allow for excellent control over light and privacy, enhancing the functionality and aesthetics of your home.

Key considerations

PVC 1

Before investing in PVC shutters for the kitchen, we recommend chatting with our team for extra recommendations and advice, as placement is a big determining factor. Generally speaking, we do not recommend PVC products if the windows needing furnishing are above the stove/cooktop, as the PVC can melt when exposed to excessive heat. 

However, this is a rare scenario, and PVC shutters are perfect for all other windows.

It’s also crucial to source your PVC shutters from a reputable supplier. Off-the-shelf PVC products feel cheap (i.e. plasticky) and tend to fade, warp, crack, and break down quickly. At Pazazz, we’ve put various PVC manufacturers to the test over the years and landed on a manufacturer whose product is better than any we’ve seen.

And finally, if you’re looking for a slightly more affordable option while keeping PVC materials at the forefront, we can also recommend PVC Venetian blinds! With slimline slats and simple operation, our blinds are always a winner with customers looking for wet room solutions on a budget.
