Moisture resistant blinds are fantastic for standing up to tough conditions. Learn more below.
Exposure to moisture is a nightmare for most types of blinds. In a very short amount of time, they get damp from water contact which causes them to warp out of their original shape. They will also quickly be stained and discoloured making them an eyesore. Prolonged exposure can be even worse. If, for example, you have a roller blind in your bathroom that isn’t moisture resistant, the dampness over time can lead to mould growth which is not only unsightly, it also contains allergens that can cause dizziness, headaches, asthma attacks or worse.
Moisture resistant and waterproof blinds are developed specifically to be able to deal with difficult, wet and steamy conditions that normal blinds just wouldn’t be capable of surviving for long periods of time in without getting damaged.
What Are The Best Rooms To Use Moisture Resistant Blinds?
The Bathroom: The bathroom is the most obvious choice for moisture resistant blinds. The steam from baths and showers as well as everyday splashes make this area a must for durable, water-resistant blinds. Regular blinds just won’t last in this environment, so investing in resistant blinds will save you money in the long run as you won’t have to changes blinds nearly as often.
The Kitchen: The kitchen is often one of the busiest rooms in the house and just like the bathroom, it can sometimes be a difficult environment for your window coverings and test them to their limits. Steam from pots and pans as well as a much higher risk of splashing when washing up make moisture resistant blinds the perfect choice.
