The bathroom is often overlooked when you’re renovating or sprucing your home up, but blinds in a bathroom can make all the difference! Choosing bathroom blinds can be tricky; there are a few different factors to keep in mind. These include:
- The level of natural light you want to let in, if any
- Your colour scheme and which blinds would work best practically
- Water resistance and how much ventilation your bathroom has (extractor fans, windows, open space, etc)
- Level of privacy; are you on the top floor of a building where no one can see in, or do you need some additional cover for your windows?
What Blinds Are Best for Bathrooms?
There are different types of blinds that could work in your bathroom. Each has their own set of benefits.
Venetian blinds can be made of wood, plastic or vinyl, depending on your style preferences. These blinds are the traditional ones you often see over bathroom windows. They give you great control of how much natural light you want to allow into your bathroom.
Plastic and vinyl are great options for bathrooms where ventilation relies heavily on the windows; the moisture will pass through the blinds and they’ll last longer if they’re water-resistant.
Bamboo blinds are eco-friendly, durable, wonderful blinds for any room. They can come in multiple designs, allowing you to play around with colours and patterns. They are solid and waterproof so they will last for many years in bathrooms of all sizes.
Other blinds such as metal or wooden ones may get damaged over time from the moisture in the room. For more advice from professional blind installers, give us a call.
