Which blinds are best for kitchen and bathroom

26th of February 2023


Bathroom Tip: The amount of privacy they offer is a key consideration when choosing the best type of blinds for the bathrooms in your home. Complete privacy control is necessary to keep your family hidden from prying eyes. Frosted glass is frequently used, however when the light is on at night, it is still possible to see clear figures from the outside.

We advise utilising Luxaflex® Duette® Shades in a blockout fabric in conjunction with either Top-Down Bottom-Up or Duo-Lite designs in this situation. This is a very adaptable system that can be customised to precisely match the desired level of visibility and light.

Kitchen Tip – The kitchen needs to be able to control the light and privacy just like any other room in the house.

Kitchen Tip – The kitchen needs to be able to control the light and privacy just like any other room in the house. Consider the product’s adaptability when choosing window coverings for this area, as well as if it provides privacy from nosy neighbours while preparing dinner at night, protection from late-afternoon glare, and adequate daytime light transmission. Cooking odours may also call for blind designs that promote good airflow and materials that do not retain odours, like shutters or blinds with thin or synthetic fabric. With window treatments like Luxaflex® Duette® Duo-Lite Shades or PolySatin Shutters, which are practical options for regulating the amount of privacy and incoming light, you may create a cosy kitchen atmosphere.

2. Humidity

One location in the house that tends to be quite humid is the bathroom, where a steamy shower can particularly damage natural woods that take in moisture from the air. This material’s ability to warp and bow can also interfere with the closure and control of light, which ultimately compromises privacy. Bathrooms need to be properly ventilated because moisture can encourage the growth of mould.

A polystyrene product with the attractive appearance of wood, such as Luxaflex® Country Woods Blinds, is ideal for high humidity environments, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens because it is immune to moisture.

For these situations, Luxaflex® Aluminium Venetian Blinds are an appropriate option.

Make sure the heat transfer won’t harm your window coverings if your kitchen windows are located near a hot zone. The blinds could distort or bow as a result of too much heat.


Bathroom Tip: Your window coverings need to be strong to resist these conditions if your windows are close to the shower or bath where they are likely to get splashed.

A polyresin compound is used to create Luxaflex® PolySatin Shutters, which are water-resistant and won’t blister, peel, flake, corrode, or fade.

Kitchen Tip: The sink is frequently placed in front of a window in traditional floor plans so that you can watch the outside while doing the dishes. If your arrangement is like this, consider the most useful window covering that is also simple to use and maintain. For usage in the kitchen, window coverings like Luxaflex® PolySatin Shutters or Country Woods Venetians are recommended since they are simple to maintain and can be wiped clean from grease, water, and soap suds. Your choice of operating method may be influenced by how easily you can lean over the bench to raise and lower the blind. If it is difficult to access, motorization can be the best option.

Another thing to consider is whether the window is behind the sink
