bathroom blinds

A bathroom is a unique room in the house.  It is one where privacy is paramount, natural light is required and the heat and humidity surpass any day in the tropics!  It is therefore important to factor all these requirements in when choosing your bathroom blinds.

A bathroom is wet and humid even with extractor fans, regular ventilation and opening your windows, so this has to be the primary consideration when choosing your blinds. Although both fabric roller blinds and wooden blinds might appeal to you, they both come with inherent problems if placed in this environment.  Wood blinds – as attractive as they are will not withstand these conditions as the wood will let moisture in and eventually they will swell and warp.  Because nearly all bathrooms experience mould and mildew, roller blinds will eventually get some form of mould on them (even with our mould retardant fabrics) and this  will result in periodic cleaning.

So with all that said our recommendation for bathrooms would be mr blinds faux wood venetians. Being a synthetic wood they will not absorb moisture, and will not warp. They allow total privacy with the adjustable angle of the blades, and complete light control from either totally closed or directional light.

Lastly these made to measure faux wood venetians are a stylish addition to any bathroom with a wide 50mm slat size, flat facia board and heavy bottom rail. They look clean fresh and are oh so functional in this humid environment.
