Do you know what sort of window coverings you want for your bathroom?

With a wide range of options available, choosing the right window treatment can be a huge task. Every room is different, so the choice of window covering depends on a wide range of factors. At Blind Concepts, we take great pride in simplifying your life with our high-quality solutions. We are happy to provide expert advice to help you choose the right window coverings for your bathroom.

Here’s a look at some important aspects to consider when choosing window coverings for your bathroom.

Durability

A bathroom is a space that’s exposed to humidity. Consequently, there are high chances of water damage and growth of mildew and mould. Opting for moisture-resistant fabrics like vinyl or plastic. This way, you can reduce the level of maintenance in the bathroom. Alternatively, choose light materials that dry up quickly. This helps ensure that your window treatment does not emit any bad odour.

Privacy

Your bathroom is the most personal space in your entire home. No wonder then that you expect to have the highest amount of privacy in your bathroom, especially if it’s facing the neighbour’s property or located at the front of the house.

If that’s the case, then steer clear of sheer fabrics. Venetian blinds are a wonderful option as they can be closed and tilted to control the amount of light and privacy.

Light

A lot of bathrooms, mainly those in older homes are not usually as bright as we might want them to be. If there’s a lack of light in your bathroom, you would want to steer clear of heavy and dark materials. Instead, go for a roller blind in light shades to allow light while maximising your privacy. Venetian blinds are also a good choice as they offer precise control of privacy and light.

Automation

Automation is an aspect that’s usually not on top of our minds when it comes to choosing a window treatment. And when it comes to the bathroom, we are usually happy with a standard solution. However, when you want to add a touch of style, elegance, and class to your bathroom, consider installing a motorised window treatment.

In addition to experience the benefits of a standard window treatment, you will enjoy the pleasure of convenience and practicality. You can open or close the window treatment at the touch of a button. And if you forget to close the blinds, you can even schedule automatic shut-down.

In Conclusion

Venetian blinds are a wonderful option thanks to their ability to offer a high amount of privacy, light control and high amount of durability (which depends on the kind of fabric you choose). If you are keen on the look and feel of the window treatment, you can even opt for other types of blinds so long as you are choosing a fabric that’s moisture-resistant.

If a moisture-resistant fabric is not an option, then you are better off with external window treatments like external Venetians, roller shutters and even external screens.
