Bathroom- Plantation Shutters

Are Plantation Shutters Suitable For Bathrooms?

Will Plantation Shutters Withstand Bathroom Steam?

Being a home builder gives you the power to make decisions on which design elements will look best in certain parts of the home. You may have thought about choosing plantation shutters for your bathroom window treatments, but stopped to question if real wood would fare well. In case you’ve found yourself stuck in the predicament, we’re going to clear the air and explain just why Kirtz® plantation shutter designs will function wonderfully in a bathroom.

You may fear that real wood is a challenge to work with due to the steam created in a bathroom. Our designers have thought about the craftsmanship aspects necessary to create a plantation shutter with specifications appropriate for an environment such as a bathroom. More specifically, the stiles within our plantation shutters are a full 1 ¼ inch thick. The one hundred percent hardwood construction makes our stiles remarkably strong and extremely warp resistant.

Many of our customers have opted to put plantation shutters in their bathrooms for an elegant, vintage feel. There’s just something rather shabby-chic about having shutters in the bathroom. Many homeowners love lounging in the tub and letting the light stream in ever so gently while keeping prying eyes out.

Being a home builder and putting every last detail into place can be so exciting and nerve racking, too. You have to get everything move-in ready from the crown molding, to the base boards, and even the window treatments. Those final touches make your project feel complete when you know you’ve made the right decisions. We sure hope you’ll find that our shutters are the right choice for your next project.

If you’re hoping to add shutters to your bathroom windows, let us help you with the craftsmanship and installation process. You can contact our team at Kirtz® by calling 1-800-416-6455.

Mahogany Plantation Shutters

Wall Colors To Complement Mahogany Shutters

Aesthetically Pleasing Tones & Mahogany Shutters

Being a home builder can be so rewarding, yet it takes a lot of decision making to finish building an outstanding home. There are a lot of choices you have to make to please your customers and if you’ve chosen mahogany shutters, you’re next home building project will be complete with this high-end treat. The African quarter sawn mahogany used by Kirtz® to create our mahogany plantation shutters ensures the highest quality finish. The challenging part for some home builders can be decorating the rest of the house with the finesse necessary to highlight the custom work.

Since the natural color of mahogany changes with age from pinkish to more of a copper or reddish-brown it may be difficult to decide which complementary wall color to choose. In most cases, mahogany plantation shutters are best matched with other accents around the room such as a color in a tile backsplash in the kitchen or the room’s base trim, crown molding, or interior doors.

What any wood lover knows is that the true beauty of the wood definitely deserves to have a background that reflects its character. So how do you choose what you think your customers will love? The truth is that color preferences add a personal touch and while you’ll want to look for colors that will enhance the finish of the wood, this can be done in many different ways.

For example, a contrasting light, creamy beige color will draw the eye more to the decorative accents and, of course, to the mahogany plantation shutters. Additionally, light green, earthy tones will provide a maximum contrast. Gray is a very adaptable color with varying shades from the spectrum of cool to warm, all of which can be very relatable to mahogany.

So, no matter what your end goal is, whether you want to provide a bold statement or a subtle one, with the right color choice the end result is bound to be stunning and your customer will swoon over your choice of Kirtz® mahogany plantation shutters.
