What Blinds are Best for Bathrooms?

Finding the best blinds for the bathroom can be a challenge. Certain types of blinds and window coverings are less than ideal for a bathroom setting and just won’t hold up to the constant wet and humid conditions. Choose wrong and you might find yourself facing a mould issue, or replacing your window treatments after just a few months. The best blinds for a bathroom window are highly durable, easy to maintain and resistant to water and humidity, they also offer privacy and light control. When it comes to choosing the best blinds for the bathroom to gain longevity from your investment, your choice of material is going to be key. 

 Read on below to find out which blinds we recommend for the bathroom and read about some of the things you should consider before you make your final decision.  

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are the perfect fit for the bathroom. Not only do they offer a great deal of flexibility when it comes to privacy, light control and style but they are also highly resistant to mould and mildew. Our aluminium and Eco-tec PVC ranges in particular are a great choice for the bathroom. 

 Our aluminium venetian blinds come in both 25mm and 50mm slat sizes and are available in a wide range of colours. They’re a sleek and highly economical choice that will keep your bathroom feeling fresh and stylish without breaking the bank. 

 Our Ecotec PVC range is amazing choice if you want to achieve a timber look in the bathroom, without any of the drawbacks of the real thing. Whilst we have timbe venetian options available, it’s not the ideal choice for the bathroom because the dampness and humidity can cause timber to warp of crack over time. PVC on the other hand is highly resistant to water and is extremely hard-wearing. Our Ecotec PVC range comes in two stylish slat sizes, 50mm and 63mm and a range of stylish colour and style options. 

 Venetian blinds can be operated with a wand, making them a safe option for homes with children and can be installed on just about any window. 

How do you maintain venetian blinds? 

One of the reasons that venetian blinds are the best type of blinds for the bathroom is because they are extremely low maintenance. Your venetian blinds won’t need much more than a quick dust or vacuum about once a week to keep them in tip-top condition. 

Any marks or dust can easily be wiped away with a simple spot clean with a damp cloth. 

Shutter Blinds

Shutters are one of the best types of blinds for the bathroom, and a popular choice for homeowners who love contemporary style and clean lines. 

Shutters offer excellent control over the level of light and privacy in your home. With our range you have the option to choose from hidden tilt bars to maximise your view into the outdoors, or middle bars for easy operation. 

Shutter blinds are available in aluminium, timber and PVC materials. For a bathroom setting we recommend selecting aluminium or PVC as they are water-resistant and won’t scratch, peel or crack in humid conditions. 

You’ll find an array of colour and style options available, including fixed, hinged, bi-folding and sliding shutters and a choice of 51mm, 64mm, 76mm, 89mm and 114mm slat sizes. 

How do you maintain shutter blinds? 

Just like with venetian blinds, shutter blinds require minimal maintenance. You won’t need to do much more than dust them and wipe them down with a cloth on a regular basis!
