What type of blinds are good for the bathroom?

2 Dec 2021 By CurtainStudio

Out of all the rooms in the house, bathrooms are the most demanding when it comes to window furnishings. You’ve got to consider lighting, privacy, moisture resistance, size and we haven’t even mentioned style yet! Not to worry though, we have some great options in our blinds range that will tick all of your boxes.  

Being one of the smaller and sometimes darker rooms in the house, it is important to use window furnishings in your bathroom that enhance the space and make it feel bigger and brighter all day long. Most importantly, they have to be suitable to the bathroom environment that is humid and prone to moisture and mould.

So, what blinds do we recommend for your bathroom?

Venetian blinds

We love Venetians for bathrooms because they are moisture resistant and give you complete control of lighting and privacy by simply adjusting the slats. Their sleek design means they take up little space which is perfect for smaller bathrooms. Cleaning them is easy too; use a soft cloth or a vacuum cleaner with a dust brush attachment on a low suction.

We have a beautiful range of venetian blinds to choose from that will suit your style and budget. Make sure to pick Aluminium or Ecowood material as Basswood (natural wood) can warp and is susceptible to mould.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are another great option for your bathroom because they are simple, versatile and cost-effective. Double up with a sunscreen for daytime privacy and maximal light and use a thermal roller blind for night time privacy and extra insulation. Roller blinds work a charm in humid, damp spaces as they don’t get mouldy, plus you can simply vacuum on a low suction setting or spot clean with a damp cloth when necessary.

Both our readymade and custom-made roller blinds come in a wide variety of sizes and colours that will add the perfect finishing touch to your space.
