Which blinds are suitable for bathrooms?
When choosing your new bathroom window fitting, it’s important to factor in the functionality of the space. Compact bathrooms will have to deal with the impact of steam and water, more so if your window stands near to your bath, shower or sink.
If you have a much more spacious bathroom space, then your choice widens quite a bit, but the most common option for your bathroom are Waterproof blinds. These are the best to avoid any damp and mould developing on your new blinds, and keep your bathroom looking and feeling like new.
Waterproof blinds include Faux Wood , PVC Roller blinds and PVC Vertical blinds, so there are certainly a wide range of styles, textures and colours available when it comes to deciding on your new bathroom blind.
What are waterproof blinds?
Waterproof blinds are designed to withstand any amount of water and humidity, which promote longevity in your home. Waterproof blinds are made from PVC material, which has amazing qualities, and doesn’t absorb water. This makes them the ideal choice for wet rooms. PVC blinds are also one of the easiest blinds to clean, you can simply wipe them down with a wet cloth or sponge as they are completely water repellent.
