“Keep it Private” – Cover your obscure windows too!

Many of our customers ask for their Obscure windows to be excluded from being covered with any type of Window covering. There are a few reasons why we advise to not leave these poor guys out and the benefits of having them covered are helpful.

When it comes to window coverings for your bathroom, there’s probably not an area of your home that is more important when it comes to privacy. It’s important for your peace of mind but also for maintaining an appropriate level of intimacy. Adding blinds or shutters can help strike a balance between privacy and natural light.

When going through your choices, it’s important to keep in mind that even obscure windows need to be covered.

Those small windows often go overlooked, but they can still provide an uncomfortable level of visibility, either from the outside or when you’re using the bathroom within. During the evening, when lights are on, shadows pass through that can still be seen from the outside. Sounded just like the beginning of a novel, but then again I’m sure your neighbours would have a story to tell after seeing you in the bathroom!

Certain materials, such as light-filtering blinds and even Aluminium Plantation Shutters, can offer a sense of seclusion while also maintaining a decent level of natural light. After all, the look and feel of your chosen covering should fit in with the rest of the home’s decor and should also be chosen with ease of maintenance in mind.

Blinds and shades are some of the easiest to clean and keep looking like new, while curtains are beloved for their ability to soften a room’s look with textures and patterns.

Considering all the options you have, there’s no reason to overlook any windows when it comes to your bathroom. With the right combination aesthetic and privacy, you’ll never worry about nosey eyes again.

Which Blinds are suitable for my Bathroom?

It’s important to consider the level of moisture and potential water damage from showers and baths. Waterproof window coverings are popular for bathrooms, especially for areas prone to plenty of moisture in the air. There are several types of waterproof window coverings available on the market, depending on functionality and durability. Vinyl blinds and shades are perfect for frequent moisture and humidity, as they are quite easy to clean and maintain with their antimicrobial properties. While they may not be the most enhancing option for your bathroom, vinyl blinds also keep plenty of light out of your bathroom as desired. They come in RollerMotorised or Standard, Verticals and Venetians.

If you’re looking for something more decorative, a Plantation Shutter is another great option. These Shutters come in PVC, Aluminium and Basswood. With Aluminium being the most durable having them installed professionally, can make them last up to 10 or more years. PVC is also a great waterproof option, which can be offered in a wide variety of White Shades.

Another option is fabric curtains. These can offer a softer look for the bathroom, and curtain liners can be added to provide an extra layer of protection against moisture. Fabric curtains do require some maintenance, however, as they can lose their waterproof qualities over time. You wanted the positive and the negatives and JHS won’t keep anything hidden!

Knowing the ins-and-outs will help you find something that is perfect. No matter which type of window treatment you choose, with the right materials and design, you can help make sure your newly renovated bathroom stays as stylish and comfortable as possible.
