It can be hard to choose the right blinds for your bathroom, as it’s important to pick a style that won’t become damaged by the high levels of moisture in the air. That's why we’ve put together a handy guide to help!

Here are the four main factors you should consider when choosing your bathroom blinds. 

1) Water resistance

Bathrooms, by nature, are damp environments, which is why it’s important to choose blinds that are water resistant. Real wood blinds, for example, are not suitable for use in bathrooms as they begin to warp when exposed to moisture. Faux wood blinds offer the elegance of real wood while being suitable for use in damp environments. All of our other styles of blinds are available in a range of colours and fabrics, including PVC and other water-resistant materials that are designed to withstand moisture.  

2) Warmth

With their typical lack of carpet and other soft furnishings, bathrooms are often prone to becoming chilly in the winter months. It’s a common misconception that you should avoid fabric blinds in the bathroom; as long as you select an option that’s been designed to withstand high moisture levels, your blinds will stay looking great. Sumptuous Roman blinds add a cosy feel and a touch of elegance to any bathroom, while allowing you to vary the amount of light you let in. 

3) Privacy

The bathroom is one of the rooms in your home where privacy is paramount, and you want to create a cosy environment where you feel happy taking relaxing baths and getting ready for the day. For this reason, roller blinds are often a popular choice. They can be lowered and raised with ease, to provide flexible levels of privacy and light. 

4) Ventilation 

Good ventilation is key in bathrooms, which can quickly become stuffy and steamy. Vertical blinds allow for variable airflow and work particularly well with larger windows. At Broadview, we offer vertical blinds in a range of PVC and water-resistant materials that are designed to stand up to damp conditions.
