Should blinds be installed in a bathroom or not?
Many people aren’t sure about installing blinds in a bathroom as blinds can get damaged if they aren’t suited to water or humidity exposure.
Luckily, there are many blind options that are suitable for this type of environment, giving you plenty of privacy and light control for your bathroom!
What to consider when choosing blinds for your bathroom
- Are they water and moisture resistant?
- Are they easy to wipe down and maintain?
- What amount of privacy do you need? Do you already have frosted glass and just want something more for light control, or do you need full privacy blinds?
- What style of blind do you like?
Choosing blinds for your bathroom
When it comes to blinds for the bathroom, durability is key. Once installed over your bathroom windows, the blinds will have to battle steam, splashes and possibly even suds if you're lucky enough to have a bath.
For these reasons, it's important to choose a material that's not only stylish, but also water or moisture-resistant and hardwearing.
It might go without saying, but wooden blinds are a big no-no in the bathroom. They'll only absorb moisture over time, causing them to buckle, warp, and break easily.
The best blinds for your bathroom are typically made of synthetic materials, like PVC or aluminium.
Best blinds for your bathroom
Here are our top recommendations for the best bathroom blinds:
Vertical blinds are a good option for the bathroom, as they are simple to install and offer plenty of privacy, but only with good ventilation in place!
If you're considering Vertical blinds in a wet area like your bathroom, choose a durable, acrylic coated fabric that won't absorb moisture from the air.
Vertical blinds also offer excellent light and privacy control, as the blades both rotate and can slide entirely out of the way for a perfect view of the outdoors.
As one of the most popular and affordable styles of blinds in our range, Vertical blinds are available in a wide range of classic and contemporary shades.
While Roller blinds are a fabric blind, like Vertical blinds, they can be installed in bathroom when you have good ventilation installed.
These blinds give you plenty of privacy when they’re rolled down and are easy to keep clean.
Just make sure to always keep the window open partially during and after using the bathroom to allow airflow and avoid the build-up of any mould.
Aluminium Venetians blinds
Aluminium Venetian blinds are a great blind option that’s durable and won’t succumb to water damage.
These blinds are easy to wipe down, keep clean and the horizontal slats offer plenty of privacy and light control for your bathroom.
Woodlux blinds are a type of faux-wood blind made from PVC and designed to give the look of a real wood finish.
These blinds are great for bathrooms due to their durability, as they aren’t prone to warping from water or steam.
Adding to their long list of benefits, these PVC blinds are also low maintenance, so there’s no need for extensive cleaning, repair, or frequent replacement.
Timber-look Venetian blinds
Timber-look Venetian blinds are also made from hard-wearing PVC, which is a durable, moisture-resistant material, so you won't have to worry about these blinds buckling or warping in humid rooms like the bathroom.
Similar to Woodlux blinds, these blinds also have the charming appearance of a wooden blind with the ability to withstand moisture, steam, and any splashes of water.
Another benefit that makes these bathroom blinds so appealing is that they're incredibly easy to clean. Simply wipe the slats down with a damp cloth every couple of months to keep the blinds looking as good as new.
If blinds aren’t your style, consider aluminium shutters for your home
Aluminium shutters are one of the most durable, low maintenance covers you can buy for your bathroom windows.
Once installed, stylish aluminium shutters offer supreme light control and privacy in your bathroom.
Plus, because the shutters are made from aluminium, they won't fade, peel or warp when exposed to constant moisture.
