On the Road: Best Caravan Blinds

If you own a campervan, or are about to complete a van conversion, it’s worth thinking about ways to improve your road trip lifestyle. Considering it’s the place where you’ll be sleeping, eating and hanging out, you’ll want caravan fittings that can provide the comfort and privacy of a regular home. Enter: caravan curtains and blinds!

Simple guide to caravan curtains and blinds

When it comes to finding the right camper curtains or blinds, it’s essential to think about the function you want them to perform: do you want more light? More privacy? Or do you simply want a window treatment that’s not going to take up too much space?

Can you put normal blinds in a caravan?

Yep, you can install normal blinds like roller blinds, venetian blinds, plus more inside your caravan. Keep reading below for some of the best caravan blinds and caravan curtains to install before your next road trip!

Best caravan blinds and curtains

Curtains

First up: curtains. These window treatments are a popular choice when it comes to fitting out a caravan or campervan, as they’re super practical in a smaller space and don’t need to be secured in place while you’re on the road.

Caravan curtains can be installed and operated on a small track or even just on a simple rod. Then, all you need is a DIY tieback to keep your caravan curtains out the way when you want to enjoy the view or let some light in.

Our range of custom caravan curtains are available in your choice of sheer, linen, sunscreen and blockout fabrics (to name a few), to suit your light and privacy control needs.

Find out everything you need to know about curtains here, or keep reading for a quick guide to the pros and cons of our two most popular fabrics.

Sheer Curtains

Pros: Provide a decent level of daytime privacy and let in lots of natural light.

Cons: Don’t provide privacy at night and may prevent a sleep-in.

Tip: Pair sheer caravan curtains with a blockout blind (e.g., roller blind) for dual functionality.


Blockout Curtains (Privacy Curtains)

Pros: Blocks out most outside light, provides insulation, offers privacy whenever required.

Cons: Hard to enjoy privacy and light at the same time (sheer curtains are better for this).

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds make popular caravan blinds due to their affordability and versatility. One installed in your caravan or campervan, these blinds allow you to control levels of light and privacy easily. All you need to do is simply tilt the slats.

To avoid cluttering the small living space in your camper or caravan, choose slimline Venetians. The slimline profile makes them a good choice for caravan narrow window reveals. These blinds are also available in a huge range of colours, so you can easily choose something to suit the van’s décor.

Note: Hold-down clips (secured at the bottom rail with small brackets) are a must. This will stop your caravan venetian blinds from banging and clanging against your windows while you’re driving.


Roller Blinds

When it comes to clutter-free decorating in your caravan or camper, you can’t go past classic roller blinds. Caravan roller blinds have a very stylish, minimal design which allows the fabric to be completely rolled up into a tube at the top of the window frame.

Thanks to this design, this gives you a completely unobstructed view when you want it, and privacy when you need it. Gorgeous view with no one in sight? Roll your blinds up and enjoy the scenery. Alternatively, if the campsite is busy, roll the blinds down for 100% privacy.

Choose your caravan roller blinds in fabrics such as sunscreen, blockout or dimout, all available in a range of different colours. Like all our products, we also custom make to whatever size you need, meaning we can easily make small roller blinds for caravans.

Note: When choosing caravan roller blinds, keep in mind that they need to be face fit as there is no recess to the windows.


Should caravan blinds be up or down when travelling?

It’s best practice to keep your caravan blinds up when travelling. Allowing yourself a clear view through your windows ensures your safety on the road. Plus, it also prevents damage to the blinds or curtains.
