Top Tips For Choosing Bathroom Blinds

Light control, condensation and privacy are all things you need to consider when choosing blinds for the bathroom. It can be a difficult task as there is often a lot of warm water used throughout the bathroom, making a humid space that can damage blinds if they’re not the right ones. The material must be able to handle the moisture, otherwise you may see an appearance of mould and mildew.

As mentioned above, suitable fabrics are an absolute must when choosing bathroom blinds. Steer clear of real woods because they can stain, warp and even twist over time. Be wary of cotton, linen and silk as moisture can get caught in the fibres. Instead, opt for PVC and polyester as their qualities include water resistance, meaning there’s no chance of mould or damage.

No Curtains

While this may seem obvious to many, it’s definitely worth pointing out. Curtains are a big no no and there’s good reason why you don’t see them in the bathroom. Blinds are much more practical plus they’re more often than not made out of fabrics that are easily wiped down, without the need for removing them completely.


If your shower is close to the window then your blinds may be getting hit with excess water and if they’re not waterproof, you could see damage down the line. Choose showerproof and waterproof blinds to combat the splashes, with options available include beautiful roller blinds and faux wood or aluminium venetian blinds.


Privacy is a must for the bathroom, whether you’re enjoying a relaxing bath, having a soak in the shower or brushing your teeth before bed. The last thing you want to see is your neighbour peering through the window, and we’re sure they don’t want to see you either! A simple roller blind or set of venetian blinds can offer great privacy, giving you the freedom to open them and adjust light levels as you wish.

Natural Lighting

While privacy is one of the most important factors to consider, light is also very important. Don’t block out the only natural source of light with heavy blinds, instead go for a less dense material for roller blinds and diffuse the light instead of blocking it. Don’t worry, it’ll still maintain your privacy and ensure you can bathe, shower and wash in peace, whether it’s at night or during the day.
