Bathroom Blinds and En-suite Window Treatments

There are a few things to take into consideration when deciding and planning bathroom blinds.

•Firstly, the position of the window- privacy is an important factor. •The amount of moisture or condensation that the bathroom or en-suite generates •The style of the window •Your décor and personal preference

In our modern world taking into account the busy lives we lead, we all need to take time to relax and unwind as well as sort out personal care in order to face the world. Having the right window treatment that provides the privacy to continue your everyday life is essential.

Additionally the blind or curtain can act as a focal point.

Window Treatments and Moisture Bathroom Blinds

As there is always a measure of moisture and condensation associated with any bathroom or en-suite, even if there are extractor fans, if an unsuitable fabric is selected- one that is not moisture resistant blind or suitable for damp conditions, then you may find that black mould spots making an ugly appearance within a short time. Moisture resistant blinds are often chosen as a way to solve this problem.

However, if you want to use curtains as a window treatment, then the fabric like any blinds needs to be suitable for moist conditions and easy to laundry.

A very large bathroom and the window situated well away from your bath or shower would not play such an important factor in your design.

The Style of Your Window

The type of window, the type of style you want to create may depend on the final choice of window treatment selected or blinds. Your windows maybe a casement window,sash, a bay window, tilt and turn, a roof or a skylight window.

The functionality, practicality and light control are other factors to consider.

If you are after a contemporary look in keeping with modern living then a simple solution is to choose a blind.

If you room has a more traditional theme then a swag or valance can provide a layered look and provide extra interest.

A combination of the two may also work.

We have identified on our site blinds which are moisture resistant.

Here are your best options to provide both privacy and style in your bathroom:

They can be wiped with a damp cloth to keep them looking nice and clean. They are easy to pull up and down and can allow the natural light to flood into the room.
