What Window Treatments Won't Fade In Honolulu?

February 25, 2022

Your Honolulu window treatments sit in sunlight all day, so it’s no wonder if they begin to discolor or fade. You have to get new window coverings if they do this because they will become more unsightly with time. For more enduring window treatments that won’t fade in Honolulu, utilize Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters don’t fade or turn yellow in sunlight so you can place them in your brightest window sills with no worries. They also will not get stained by water damage or dirt, making them appropriate for every room in the house.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Turn Yellow In Sunny Honolulu Windows

Most window treatments fade in Honolulu when exposed to intense UV rays. The sun wash out materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, spoiling the lovely appearance of your window treatments. UV rays can cause many materials to deteriorate with time too, which is why even budget aluminum window blinds get discolored in the sun. The best way to avoid this is to use window coverings like durable Polywood shutters that are made from UV-resistant materials.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from a sturdy, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically adheres to the faux wood to resist damage and discoloration from sunlight. While the sun bleaches or discolors most window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun forever and never turn yellow or fade. They stay a lovely, pristine white that always matches your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Water Damage

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Honolulu, humidity and water can also discolor window coverings. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water stains and additional damage if you aren’t careful. If you need window treatments for a humid environment like the kitchen or bathroom, choose Polywood shutters instead. Similar to how they resist deterioration from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water can’t permeate their faux-wood material, so they won’t develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Dirt And Stains Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can discolor many window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their amazing finish resists discoloration from sticky fingerprints and grimy build-up. And in the event that your Polywood shutters do start to look a little dingy, they’re very easy to clean.

Their sturdy, broad louvers make dusting shutters easier than cleaning fragile blinds. And you won’t have the frustration of taking them down, laundering, and ironing them like when you clean curtains. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher grime, a moist cloth and light scrubbing will do. And don’t worry about rubbing off their finish. That hardy coating resists moisture and won’t rub off on your cloth.
