Be Inspired by Bathroom Blinds: A Practical Solution and a Design Statement for Your Home
Your bathroom is usually a place to relax and unwind, washing away the day’s stresses, having a soak in the bath, and when you switch off, this is often the time when you get your best ideas, solve problems, or just forget about day to day life for a short while.
In this very private space bathroom blinds become very important for privacy, but the right design can also help create the right ambience.
What are the best blinds to choose for your bathroom?
On sunny days, blinds help keep the room cool. In winter they can help retain heat – the last thing you want is a chilly bathroom. As your bathroom will be fairly damp, with a build-up of steam, moisture-resistent fabric is recommended.
There are some very modern fabrics and fabric treatments available that repel moisture. These fabrics come in a range of colours. We have plenty of samples that we can show you when discussing your blinds.
The reason we visit your home (or commercial premises – we do commercial blinds, too) is that we can gauge the practicalities of each room and offer you advice, as well as taking measurements.
Popular bathroom blind choices:
Roller blinds are an excellent choice for a bathroom, being cost-effective and practical, as well as having a range of finishes. Roller blinds are easy to clean and offer full privacy when closed. They also have a blackout option that can block light.
Vertical blinds are fully adjustable, so offer excellent light and privacy control. No longer the preserve of offices, vertical blinds now come in a range of fabrics, patterns and colours. The colours can be alternated to create clever colour coordination.
Venetian blinds can be closed to offer maximum privacy, raised for full light, and angled to let in as much or as little light as you like. Aluminium venetian blinds are durable and suit bathroom conditions. There are a wide range of colours and finishes, including plain, textured, patterned, perforated and metallic.

Opulence or contemporary chic – you decide.
1 – Make a design statement
If you love a minimalist look in your bathroom, add a chic understated blind such as this moisture-repellant blind made using Ex-Lite fabric from Louvolite.
We use Louvolite fabric in many of our made to measure blinds.
These vertical blinds offer a similar effect, but with more texture:
Colour is an ideal way to inject some personality. Add a yellow blind for an upbeat atmosphere – perfect for a bright start to the day, whereas blue tones create a calm, tranquil tone.
Choose a colour to reflect your style and personality.
In these pleated blinds, accents of blue add a calm note. If you have an awkward shaped space, pleated blinds are an excellent solution. Perfect fit blinds allow you to open and close a window without the blinds “flapping” in the air.
2 – Easy bathroom refresh
Add a blind as a quick way to update your bathroom without splashing out on new units. By adding a bright colour or pattern you can immediately freshen up the room.
Co-ordinate the colour scheme with a couple of accessories to tone in with your new bathroom blind.
3 – Create a sanctuary
The right bathroom blind (or curtain in some circumstances) can help to create a tranquil personal space where you can relax and unwind, adding a sense of wellbeing.
4 – Bring the outside in
Love nature? These stylish bright and cheery bathroom blinds add a pop of colour to brighten up the space. A vibrant bathroom blind will ensure that on even the darkest days you can enjoy a bright space.
