What do I use for my bathroom window? I want privacy, but not mildew or water stains and something that I can clean?
Without a doubt, I recommend Palm Beach™ polysatin shutters or blinds from our EverWood® Collection (EverWood TruGrain® blinds, EverWood Distinctions™ blinds, EverWood Renditions™ blinds). These products are made from materials that are guaranteed to never warp, chip, crack or fade even in the most extreme temperatures. They are ultra easy to clean as well. Use a static duster or soft-brush, handheld vacuum attachment to dust off. To reduce static, clean and help repel dust, wipe the product with dryer sheets. Our EverWood alternative wood blinds can be washed by soaking them in a tub full of water (not the headrail) with a mild detergent. Wash for five minutes by gently moving liquid around with your fingers, and then rinse with clear water. Close the blinds before removing from the rinse water, hold the rails and tilt to remove the excess water. Re-install and dry completely.
For both the Palm Beach polysatin shutters and EverWood alternative wood blinds, you can also spray with a non-alcohol glass cleaner on a cloth to clean. Having a product that can be easily cleaned in a bathroom is extremely important for health reasons. Because they are alternative wood products, they are easy to wipe down and won't bend or crease. And remember the wider the slats or louvers, not only will you have more view through and natural light streaming in, but less slat surface to clean! By simply tilting and turning the slats and louvers you control the light and privacy levels you want in your bathroom.
