Blinds are the most popular type of window covering for bathrooms, chosen for their clean elegant look, resistance to moisture and because they’re easy to wipe clean.
If you’re completely renovating your bathroom and you’re unsure about which window treatments will suit this steamy room, or you’re simply looking for an easy bathroom update, follow our advice on choosing the best blinds for blissful bathrooms.
So what are the best blinds for a bathroom?
- Pleated Blinds
Pleated blinds are a fantastic choice for bathrooms.
Most pleated blind fabrics are suitable for moist conditions and can be sponge cleaned.
When closed pleated blinds give total privacy whereas semi-sheer pleated blind fabrics can create a gorgeous soft light effect within a bathroom for a spa like atmosphere.
For additional climate control, ideal for a cold bathroom, our Hive blinds have a unique cellular design, which holds a layer of air in between the fabric adding extra insulation at the window.
Design tip: The innovative Style Studio INTU operating system is a great option for pleated and Hive blinds in the bathroom. This flexible operating system allows blinds to slot directly into the window frame, eliminating gaps and draughts. Blinds can be raised / lowered from the bottom or top – giving additional privacy control.
- Roller Blinds
While most roller blind fabrics are suitable for moist conditions, it’s worth choosing those that are recommended for bathrooms specifically. Style Studio has more than 70 fabrics that can withstand bathroom humidity and steam generated from hot showers and baths. Roller blinds are available in a variety of transparencies – from semi-transparent to blackout in an array of colour and print options.

- Mirage Blinds
Mirage blinds are an increasingly popular choice in bathrooms, selected to stylishly regulate window light. The innovative ‘day & night’ Mirage system can be open, closed or anywhere in-between. Mirage blinds are also suitable for moist conditions.
- Vertical Blinds
Style Studio vertical blind fabrics include ‘stay fresh’ properties making them ideal for use in bathrooms. Many of the fabrics are available in the exact same colour and design as Style Studio roller blinds. A great design feature for bathrooms that have more than one window is to mix and match roller and vertical blinds in one room.
Vertical blinds offer versatile operation for privacy and light control, often an important consideration in a bathroom.
- Venetian Blinds
Aluminium vertical blinds never go out of fashion as a brilliant blind choice for bathrooms. Easy to clean, water will just run off the water repellent slats. They’re available in almost every shade for a pop of colour – so super stylish too. Venetian blinds suit small and large windows alike.
