The bathroom is the first place you look at when you’re staying away from home, so why should your home bathroom be any less brilliant?

Have a look at a few of the ideal window treatments for this humid, water-filled room.
Because the blinds in your bathroom will be in a constant battle with steam, condensation, humidity and water, you’ll have to be discerning with what material your blinds are made up of.
Natural wood is not an option because it will not survive the conditions of your bathroom. But if you’d still like a wood look, you could get bamboo blinds, which are better suited to an environment like that.
You could also get aluminium blinds in a wood look, or in a range of other colours or finishes.
Another material to avoid is fabric, as your blinds will need to fight mould and dirt and be easy to clean with a simple wipe-down. For this reason, opt for polyester instead.
There are many different styles that you can use to use the material you choose for your bathroom blinds.
The classic venetian blind is a standard for a reason. Easy to open and close as you need, this blind is available in aluminium, wood-look aluminium and bamboo. Complete the wood look this with a bamboo toilet seat or a green plant to really make it really pop!
If you have a frosted window or window that is not transparent, you might want to go roller blinds or Roman blinds. There is a myriad of designer fabric designs to choose from to match your bathroom colours and aesthetic, just as long as you go for polyester or bamboo.
If you need your window treatment to block out the outside world for privacy, vision blinds are an easy-to-use and attractive option, also available in many different colours and designs. Not only can you use these to control your level of privacy, but it can also be used to filter in the sunlight as you please.
If you have an en-suite, you could make it more unique and functional by using PVC shutters to divide your bedroom and your bathroom. With a distinguished design like this, you may feel as though you’re living in a 5-star hotel!
