Consider the following questions

How big is the room? Some households are lucky enough to have large rooms. These spaces are likely to offer good ventilation. Smaller spaces will likely be more challenged with ventilation and need a more durable window blind solution such as a waterproof blind.

Where is your window in comparison to your sink? If water touches your blind on a daily basis then waterproof blinds are a no-brainer.

How easy does maintenance need to be? You can choose any window blind for your kitchen or bathroom. However some will need more maintenance to survive these challenging environments than others. If you want a solution that is low maintenance, choose a waterproof blind.

Bathroom blinds for different windows

Bathroom blinds for small windows

In the UK, we have some of the smallest bathrooms in the world. Therefore, many households will be faced with small windows. The size of your window in no way impacts your ability to choose the perfect window blind. You can choose anything from a 100% waterproof roller blind to a Venetian blind or a faux-wood blind too. The beauty of made-to-measure bathroom blinds is that we can produce your chosen style to fit your windows perfectly. So you really do have full flexibility when it comes to bathroom decor.

Bathroom blinds for tiled walls

If your bathroom window sits on a tiled wall, or if you live in a rented accommodation, you’re probably on the lookout for no-drill blinds. Unlike traditional roller blinds, they have a tensioned design that springs into your window recess and provides excellent light control instantly. At Lifestyle Blinds, we supply the Louvolite Grip Fit No Drill Blinds that can be installed in seconds. They come in a whole host of colours and styles - and they’re the perfect option for tiled walls, rental properties and if you simply don’t want to ruin the paintwork!

Bathroom blinds for large windows

If you’re lucky enough to have a large bathroom, you may also have large windows. Floor-to-ceiling windows are rare in UK bathrooms, but that doesn’t mean they’re an enigma. Some households have them and finding the right blind is a challenge. A made-to-measure blind will likely be too heavy to roll up and down due to the amount of fabric needed to cover the window. The same goes for Venetian blinds and wooden blinds.  The best option for very large bathroom windows is a 100% waterproof vertical blind. With bespoke louvres made from PVC-coated fabric, they offer excellent light coverage. You can choose to rotate the slats precisely to take control over light and privacy. Or, draw them across to one side and expose the windows fully, allowing light to flood in. The beauty of vertical blinds is you can commission one large blind to cover numerous windows. This saves you money and offers a one-size-suits-all solution.

Cleaning your bathroom blinds

High humidity in bathrooms means that taking care of your new blinds is vital. No matter how durable and long-lasting your chosen window dressing is, ignoring the build-up of moisture on them will reduce their lifespan. Thankfully, cleaning bathroom blinds is incredibly easy. Waterproof and water-resistant fabrics are designed to bead moisture on the surface rather than absorb it. These beads tend to drip down the fabric or sit there, ready to be wiped away with a clean dry cloth.

If you have a cubicle shower, you’ll know the importance of a quick wipe-down after each shower. This prevents streaking or water marks on the glass and gives your bathroom a fresh feel. The same goes for your bathroom blinds. Once you’ve wiped away all of the water drops on your shower, wipe over your blinds too. You won’t just pick up the excess moisture either. You’ll also capture any speckles of dust, helping to clean your bathroom at the same time.

We recommend adding bathroom blinds to your weekly cleaning schedule - they won’t take very long. Dust them like you would a normal blind and wipe them down when you notice moisture. If you want to do a deep clean, only use chemicals designed for waterproof blinds and make sure not to exert too much pressure on the fabric when wiping.

Cleaning Venetian blinds or faux-wood blinds is slightly more complicated than roller blinds. You will need to open the slats up fully before running a cloth across each one individually. Make sure to pay close attention to the knotted frame as this is where dust and dirt can hide.

The Benefits Of Bathroom Blinds

1. Privacy

Bathrooms are the one room of the house you expect to be in alone. Whether you’re bathing, showering or using the toilet, they are supposed to be private. Locking the door keeps those inside at bay but won’t stop onlookers from peeking in through the windows. This is particularly important if you have a ground-floor bathroom or one overlooked by neighbours.  Window blinds allow you to choose window coverage. If you’re jumping in for an evening shower or bath, pull the blinds closed to stop onlookers from being able to see in. If you’re popping on your makeup, open the blinds fully and use the natural sunlight to make sure the application is natural.

2. Light Management

It’s Saturday morning. You have 30 minutes until the kids are getting up and all you want is a hot, candle-lit bath. You could wait until nighttime and risk missing your window of opportunity. Or, you could pull your window blind closed, sink the room into darkness and allow candlelight to do its thing. Maybe you’re getting ready for the day and need natural light to make sure you look perfect. Open your blinds and benefit from light instantly. Light management isn’t just important in living rooms or offices. It is just as vital in bathrooms which is why you need the perfect blind to allow you this management.

3. Health

Bathrooms are very humid with fluctuating temperatures. Hot water from showers, heat from bubble baths and splash back the toilet - all of these factors pose a threat to traditional window blinds. Normal window dressings are made from porous materials that absorb moisture and bad smells easily. Over time, these create a breeding ground for mould - a potentially harmful organism that can trigger respiratory illnesses and allergic reactions.  Bathroom blinds are designed to be 100% waterproof - either through a PVC coating or using aluminium. This means they can be wiped clean when wet, preventing water from sitting stagnant and prioritising your family’s health.


When it comes to waterproof blinds, the key factor to consider is the material they are made from. As long as the blinds are constructed using waterproof materials, they can be considered suitable for wet environments. There isn't a single "best" waterproof blind, as the choice depends on personal preferences and specific needs. However, be sure to look for blinds crafted from waterproof materials to ensure they can withstand moisture, such as PVC, vinyl, or specialized waterproof fabrics. By selecting blinds made from such materials, you can enjoy their water-resistant properties and confidently use them in areas prone to splashes and humidity, knowing that they are designed to handle the conditions.

Yes, you can opt for waterproof blinds to use in the shower area. These specialised blinds are designed to withstand the high humidity, direct water exposure, and constant moisture found in shower enclosures. With their water-proof properties, they provide a practical and stylish solution for your shower windows. However, it's important to note that regular blinds are not suitable for this purpose, so be sure to choose specifically designed waterproof blinds that are capable of withstanding the unique conditions of a shower environment.

If you’ve been researching for a while, you may have heard the terms waterproof blinds and water-resistant blinds used interchangeably. And, you may be wondering - what’s the difference? In technical terms, a water-resistant fabric can resist a certain amount of water absorption - but not all of it. On average, a water-resistant fabric needs to withstand 1500mm or more of water during the Hydrostatic Head Test. In comparison, waterproof fabric is impermeable to water - no matter how long it spends submerged in water, it will not absorb any of the moisture.   

Both types are suitable for bathrooms and kitchens. However, we always recommend opting for a 100% waterproof blind, if possible, as this gives you the best chance of avoiding mould and long-term damage. PVC, Fibreglass and Aluminium are all waterproof fabrics that easily withstand fluctuating temperatures and allow you to continue showering, bathing and cooking in peace.

Ever wake up in the morning to find your windows covered in water? Or constantly battling against mould? You may be wondering, will waterproof blinds stop condensation? Unfortunately, the answer is no - however they will help you manage the moisture-related spores more than normal window blinds will.  Waterproof blinds do make it easier to clean away excessive moisture before it causes mould. A simple wipe-clean is all you need to do to absorb water spray and to keep your home clean for longer too.

Yes! Waterproof blinds are incredibly easy to clean, which makes them one of the most practical choices for busy families. With traditional blinds, you need to be extra careful about the amount of pressure you place on the fabric to prevent broken fibres. You need to keep an eye on fading from sunlight and have to regularly monitor for mould growth.  Water-proof blinds are made from either PVC or a Vinyl/Fibreglass blend. Both of these materials are 100% waterproof - they do not allow any water to pass through the surface. This means that any water in the air will bead into droplets on the surface. Much of this drips down where it can be wiped off the floor or absorbed into a towel. Or, you can simply take a microfibre cloth at the end of your shower, bath or cooking session and give your blinds a quick wipeover. This will sufficiently prevent mould growth and wipe any daily dust from the blind’s surface.

When you want to do a more thorough cleaning of your waterproof blinds, there are a host of tailored cleaning detergents available on the market. There's no worry about getting these blinds too wet. Simply mix up your detergent, get a soft cloth and wipe throughout the blind. It may be easier to remove the waterproof blinds, wipe them clean and allow them to dry fully before fitting them back.

If you’re cleaning waterproof Venetian Blinds or Faux-Wood blinds, you need to get in between each slat. We recommend rotating the slats closed first and wiping a damp cloth over the surface. Then, open the blind up and wipe along each slat, making sure to get into the corners and around the corded frame. This will give you the most comprehensive clean.

Both bathrooms and kitchens are unique rooms in the home. They are two of the most humid spaces, with hot water and heating devices used regularly. From filling up the bath, showering or simply flushing the toilet, nearly every bathroom task involves some degree of moisture or heat. The air in a bathroom holds a lot of this water, leaving it on cold surfaces such as mirrors and tiles. Warm air also holds more moisture than cold, increasing the risk of condensation and standing water.

Moisture in a bathroom is fine - if it’s dealt with properly. Smaller bathrooms may be fitted with extractor fans to draw as much water out of the air as possible during a shower. In others, you may keep the window cracked to maintain a more consistent air temperature. However, if you were to choose a non-waterproof blind for a bathroom, you’d encounter some serious problems. Normal window blind fabrics will absorb moisture from the air, locking it into the fibres. Even premium designs made with 100% polyester will allow moisture to run within the weave of the fabric, providing more nooks where it can sit.

Textiles with high moisture content begin to lose their tensile strength and elasticity. The fibres begin to break down, causing permanent damage or changes to the colour/pattern. Over time, moisture creates the perfect breeding ground for mould. This natural organism thrives in wet, hot environments and can spread quickly in rooms such as bathrooms. It is an irritant to human health, causing respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Not to mention, the black marks it creates are unsightly and can cause permanent staining too. Your window blind is less likely to stand the test of time if it hasn’t been designed to withstand these environments.

The temperature in a bathroom also fluctuates significantly more than in other spaces. This is again due to the activities that take place in these spaces. Some natural materials used in window blinds - such as real wood - are highly porous. When they absorb moisture, they run the risk of warping or changing shape. This impacts the blind's functionality and eventually reduces its lifespan. You want a bathroom blind that can handle high and low temperatures equally.
