In two minds about your bathroom blinds… don’t worry we’ve got you
When deciding on which types of blinds are best suited to the windows of your bathroom, the first thing you may need to consider is the likelihood of the blinds getting wet or being subjected to a significant amount of moisture or humidity on a regular basis.
If this is the case, then the most suitable choices are some vinyl or PVC waterproof roller blinds which are perfect if you like a nice clean look at the bathroom window, or some waterproof vertical blinds if you require slightly more light control during the daytime. The great thing about both these types of blinds is the fact they will not only be waterproof but also blackout and mould resistant, making them a very versatile solution.
Both of these types of bathroom blinds are not just extremely practical, but with latest styles of PVC and vinyl fabrics designs available, they are stylish as well. With a selection of timeless hues such as cream, beige, brown and white for a soothing look at the window, through to some colourful hues of vibrant blue, pink and yellow, as well as some wonderfully contemporary patterned designs, there is a design to suit all bathrooms.
Another option for very humid and misty bathrooms is aluminium Venetian blinds. Keep in mind though that they have to be made fully of aluminium and with high grade plastic components for raising, tilting and lowering the blind if they are going to get wet regularly, if any of the component’s within the workings of the blind are steel then there is a good chance they will rust over time. They do offer the option of both a classic and modern look depending on the choice of colour and finish and they are perfect for controlling light and privacy at the bathroom window.
If you prefer the look of wood in the bathroom, there is a new range of faux wood venetian blinds that are constructed from PVC giving you the natural beauty of wood with all the practicality of PVC. They look very authentic and come in a beautiful range of soothing wood colours that are fairly neutral allowing you to introduce them into practically any colour scheme. They are also UV resistant which means they won’t fade in the direct sunlight and also fire resistant, giving you complete peace of mind.
