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.
