So, before we get into blind styles and their benefit’s, we urge you to think about a couple of things first:

Venetian Blinds to Stop Glare
Despite the frosted windows we all have in our bathrooms, the additional privacy of bathroom blinds is usually necessary. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere that is! But not only that, we think they’re a necessity to finish off the look of a room too.
Choosing blinds that are suitable for bathrooms isn’t as simple as just picking your favourites though. Bathrooms are hard-working rooms because of the humid atmosphere created by steam and moisture. This humidity makes your bathroom blinds vulnerable to distortion, mould, and watermarks. That’s why you need hard-working blinds up at your window to counteract it!
Luckily, we have plenty of ‘hard-working’ blinds available across our range. Blinds that not only look good but are practical and easy to clean too. Keep reading to discover the blinds most suitable for bathrooms, downstairs loo’s, en-suites, and wet rooms!
