Top 5 Bathroom Roller Blinds, Plus Waterproof Styles
Roller blinds are among the most popular window blinds. They offer a sleek and sophisticated silhouette and they come in a huge range of colours and patterns to suit all tastes. Best of all, they feature different fabric styles so you can find a blackout fabric for complete privacy or a voile design that lets light filter in through your bathroom window.
Here, we’ve put together a guide to the best bathroom roller blinds and other styles that are hardy enough to stand up to moisture in your home. You’ll find options from vibrant hues and neutral tones to pleated blinds and textured styles that complement any home design aesthetic.
The 5 Best Bathroom Roller Blinds
Bathroom roller blinds are easy to roll up and down, making it easy to adjust privacy and light control as you need it. When you’re in the shower or your kids are playing in the bath, you can roll the blinds down to boost privacy. When you’re done and want to let light in to get ready for a big day or want to open a window to let humidity out, simply roll the blinds up.
The beauty of bathroom roller blinds is that they come in a wide selection of fabrics including waterproof and water resistant options. That means you don’t have to worry about mould growth and damage to your blinds, especially in rooms like bathrooms that are famous for humidity, dampness and temperature fluctuations.
Bathroom roller blinds are not just durable, they’re also really low maintenance — perfect for homes where chaos and busy schedules reign supreme! All they need is a quick vacuum using an upholstery brush every month or so. You can also quickly wipe down waterproof roller blinds by using a microfibre cloth if they get splashed with soaps or other bath products.

Our Amor Muted Teal with Haze Pure Double Roller Blind is one of our favourites. It features an airy blue fabric paired with a hazy white daylight roller blind that invokes visions of breezy days spent at the seashore.
5 Other Blind Styles for Bathrooms
While roller blinds are an extremely popular option for bathrooms thanks to their durability and style, there are other blind types that also perform well in wet and humid environments. These include faux wooden blinds, aluminium venetian blinds and roman blinds. They’re ideal for use not only in bathrooms, but also as kitchen blinds. Read on to learn more about each blind style and how you can use them in your home’s bathrooms and other tough spaces.
1. Faux Wood Blinds
Faux wood blinds are designed to look like the real thing. They feature a wood grain pattern and come in a variety of finishes including cedar and oak as well as black and white for a more modern take. While real wood is notoriously bad in wet spaces — thanks to warping and bending caused by moisture — faux wood blinds don’t have this problem. That’s because faux wood blinds are made of PVC and other materials that don’t absorb water. That means they’ll look like new even after repeated splashing, humidity and dampness.
2. Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds are horizontal blinds, featuring sturdy slats made of aluminium that enable you to control light and privacy throughout the day. You can open and close the blinds completely to adjust the degree of privacy. You can also tilt the slats 180 degrees to keep people from peering into your bathroom windows or to control the light and temperature in the room.
Best of all, venetian blinds come in a huge range of colours from light and dark grey to vibrant reds and blues. They’re easy to match with your interior design theme whether your home features an ocean-inspired style or a modern art deco aesthetic.
3. Roman Blinds
Roman blinds, like roller blinds, are made of fabrics that are available in moisture resistant and waterproof threads. They are more elegant than roller blinds as the fabric gently drapes and folds over itself when the blind is raised.
They’re a great option for bathrooms that tend to have less decor and style elements, helping to raise the profile of the space without a lot of effort. You can find roman blinds in blackout, dimout, and voile styles depending on how much privacy and light control you want in your home.
4. Skylight Blinds
If your bathroom has a Velux, Dakstra or Fakro skylight, a skylight blind can help protect your privacy if your neighbour’s home is taller than yours. In addition, skylight blinds enable you to control light in the bathroom — so you can get ready for a big event with natural lighting or prepare for a restful night sleep in a dimmer environment.
Skylight blinds are like Perfect Fit blinds — they feature a frame that snaps into place directly in between the glazing and the beading of the window. This ensures a bespoke fit that allows the blind to open and close seamlessly without interfering with the operation of the skylight.
5. Day & Night Blinds
Day & Night blinds are versatile blinds that feature alternating layers of opaque and transparent fabrics. You adjust the chain mechanism so that either layer of fabric is showing. That means you can use the opaque layer to keep nosy neighbors from peering into your bathroom windows while you shower and then use the voile layer to let light stream in when you’re brushing your hair or putting on makeup.
