Best Blinds for the Bathroom and Wet Areas

When it comes to choosing the right window treatments for different rooms in your home, bathrooms drive a notoriously hard bargain. The blinds in your bathroom need to tick three essential boxes: privacy, durability and light control. Select the wrong window treatments for your wet rooms and you’ll most likely be met with mould, damage and products not lasting as long as they should. It’s worth doing your homework (or talking to an expert ABC consultant!) to select the right window treatments for your bathrooms, right from the start.

Best Blinds for the Bathroom and Wet Areas

The bathroom blinds checklist

Whatever you do, make sure the blinds you install in your bathroom are durable. It’s not rocket science; window treatments in wet-areas of your home must be waterproof and steam resistant. Steer well away from wooden blinds here, they’ll only absorb moisture and quickly buckle and break. The best blinds for your bathroom are typically made of synthetic materials or acrylic-coated fabrics. As well as durability, these window treatments need to allow for privacy (it is a bathroom, after all!) and light control, so you can enjoy all the natural light, fresh air and openness the window provides to ensure your bathroom is a vibrant, energising space.

Aluminium Shutters

Bathrooms shouldn’t be overlooked as a stylish space, demanding just as much lux and decor as any other room in your home. That’s where aluminium shutters come in. An effective, durable solution, aluminium shutters are as practical as they are on-trend. Easy to operate for superb light control and privacy and a cinch to wipe clean, aluminium shutters tick all the options, with style to boot.

Woodlux Venetians

Wood-lovers rejoice; it is possible to continue your wood interior scheme into your wet areas! Just go for timber-look versions in the bathroom, instead of the real thing. Where timber venetians will bow and buckle, the PVC in Woodlux venetians means they’ll last the distance. And thanks to their moisture and heat-resistant qualities, they’re ideal on windows that get the full brunt of the sun.

Roller Blinds

Got your heart set on roller blinds in your bathroom? Fear not. Some roller blind fabrics can be coated with antifungal treatments, making them moisture-resistant and suitable for wet areas. With all the privacy you need as well as the option for solar-powered automation, roller blinds are a great window treatment option for your bathroom.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are another versatile window treatment that offer style and functionality in your bathroom, but as with roller blinds, it’s essential to select a fabric that will withstand a damp, steamy bathroom environment. If you’re opting for vertical blinds in wet areas, choose a durable, acrylic coated fabric that won’t absorb moisture from the air. Vertical blinds also offer excellent light and privacy control, as the blades both rotate and slide entirely out of the way.
