Where To Buy Bathroom Blinds Online And What To Look For

Anyone that’s ever seen mouldy blinds in a bathroom knows that not anything will do.

So what should you look for?

In this guide we’ll be explaining what will or won’t work for your bathroom windows, and recommending the best places to purchase them.

Which types of blinds work in bathrooms?

Faux Wooden Blinds

Faux Wooden Blinds come in matching colours or designs, and are usually cheaper than real wood. On top of that, quality suppliers will have “grain” in the material, so it looks and feels like real wood.

Why choose this?

  • Moisture resistant
  • Natural appearing wood-grain for a stunning real wood look
  • Tilt and turn or raise and lower for complete control over your privacy
  • PVC coated for easy wipeable cleaning

Vertical Blinds

For Verticals, you can select a teflon coated fabric to add water resistance, making it perfect for wet rooms and bathrooms. This will also make it even easier to clean, by just wiping it with a wet cloth.

Why choose this?

  • Moisture resistant fabric and components
  • Dozens of patterns and colours to choose from to match your interiors
  • Great privacy and light control by tilting and turning the slats
  • PVC coated for easy wipeable cleaning

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds can be used with water resistant fabrics to make them a great option for bathrooms. They’ll also be significantly easier to clean, just a quick wipe.

Why choose this?

  • Moisture resistant fabric and components
  • Dozens of patterns and colours to choose from to match your interiors
  • Full privacy by lowering the blind or raise it to light up the room
  • PVC coated for easy wipeable cleaning


An increasingly popular choice today, Shutters can be selected in a high quality waterproof PVC option, making them perfect for bathrooms. They’ll also match perfectly with your other Shutters.

Why choose this?

  • Fully water resistant
  • Matching colours and styles with the rest of the Shutters around your home
  • Tilt and turn slats for privacy and light control
  • Easy to wipe clean

What about other blinds?

You may have seen people with other types of blinds in their bathrooms, maybe a Roman blind for example. Are they OK?

The answer is that you CAN make it work.

They’re not advised, especially if you like a hot shower for example. But for cloakrooms and en-suites, they can still do a great job, while looking elegant.

So while the 4 above are our recommended types, you can break this rule if you wish. It’s best to talk with an advisor first though.

Where to buy

For this guide, we’re specifically going to discuss “made to measure blinds”. If you would prefer to buy a cheap, mass-produced blind that you cut down yourself, we recommend looking elsewhere.

For made to measure though, there are two options:

  1. You have an advisor measure your windows and install them for you
  2. You measure and install them yourself, and order them online

Here’s our suggestions for both…


Option 1. Have a professional measure and install the blinds for you

If you’d prefer to leave it all to a professional, so you can be confident the measurements are correct and the fitting is great – you can go the offline route.

We recommend Hillarys. They’re the UK’s #1 supplier of made to measure blinds, installing over 21,000 per week.

They have a huge selection of window furnishings, including moisture resistant fabrics for the bathroom.

We recommend Web-Blinds. They’re the biggest sellers online with over 1,000,000 blinds and shutters sold.
