Moisture resistant blinds are ideal for bathrooms and kitchens where there may be a lot of moisture present. Our Moisture Resistant material is rot-proof and Biosafe®. This is because it will not absorb and retain any water under normal circumstances, which is key to preventing the build-up of bacteria or mold in these warm, damp spaces.
We offer a range of moisture resistant blinds – including bathroom blinds, kitchen blinds, and roller blinds. With our measuring guides and unparalleled customer service, you can ensure your blinds are perfect for the room they are used in.
These blinds are super easy to clean and perfect for busy households; simply wipe over with a dry cloth to remove dust and any debris or use a damp cloth to remove stains. Ideal for homes with kids or areas close to food preparation (including use around the kitchen sink). Please consider the type of fabric best suited to the situation, for example, PVC fabric blind may be a better choice is you plan to clean your blind more vigorously. If you’re unsure of the type of fabric you will need, please feel free to order as many free samples as you need.
Fire retardancy is a worthy feature to look out for with a window blind. A fire-retardant blind provides peace of mind, knowing that you have a product in place that will protect your loved ones. It is a high quality and safe alternative in case somebody leaves a candle on the windowsill, or you install a blind close to your hob in the kitchen. This material will only smolder if presented with a flame, and once the source of heat has been removed, it is designed to self-extinguish.
If you are unsure about whether the type of blind you are interested in is fire retardant, please speak to our customer service team.
Ideal for children’s play areas, communal areas, bathrooms and homes with pets. Our Anti-Bacterial, anti-microbial blinds are treated to kill bacteria. Biosafe® is the international accreditation standard for an antimicrobial formula that ensures the effective inhibition of infection. What’s more, it is an inherent formula, which means it will not wear off over time. This formula is used in hospitals, care homes, and health care centres across the country.
The term anti-bacterial can sometimes throw up visions of grey, lifeless blinds – however, we have a huge number of anti-bacterial blinds perfect for your home. In particular, the roller blinds range is a popular choice for tackling bacteria in the home.
Just what you need when you retreat indoors on a scorching summer’s day. Our solar reflective fabric has a special backing that bounces back the sun’s rays. This reduces heat and glare building up in a room beyond the abilities of a regular blind, ideal for rooms exposed to a lot of sunlight, giving you an element of solar control. Please note that the backs of these fabrics will appear different to the front of the blind due to the solar reflective properties.
Real Wood Venetian
Real wood venetian blinds are made from basswood. With a regular and even grain, basswood is a popular material for wooden venetian blinds. Real wood venetians blinds are not suited to humid or damp areas like bathrooms and kitchens as the moisture can cause the wood to warp.
Faux Wood Venetian
Faux wood venetian blinds are made using composite materials such as vinyl and PVC. Faux wood is very durable and moisture resistant and looks virtually indistinguishable from real wood. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms where the damp and humidity would not be suitable for real wood.
Fabric Privacy Tape
Fabric privacy tape is a strip of fabric that covers the holes that the ladder passes through. Not only is the fabric tape a stylish addition to the blind, but it also covers the holes that could allow in light or let people look through.
Solid or patterned privacy tape is available across our blind range, should you want to contrast the colour of the blind, or room, with the tape.
The smallest venetian slat size on offer on DotcomBlinds.com, the 25mm slat is available in wood and metal and is ideal for smaller window spaces. Measuring this type of blind is straightforward, as is installation.
Larger than the 25mm slat but not as big as the 50mm slat. The 35mm sized slats provide slightly more privacy than the larger slat options and are ideally suited to medium-sized to small windows.
50mm slat venetian blinds are ideal for shading large windows. They give a similar effect of large plantation-style shutters but with greater maneuverability and control. For feature windows – 50mm slat blinds are a perfect choice as they allow you to make a statement in style.
Blackout : PVC
Providing high levels of light exclusion, these are the nigh-on bombproof blind fabrics that are suited to the toughest conditions. This moisture resistant, fire retardant, anti-microbial wipe clean blackout fabric is 4-ply: three layers of PVC and one layer of fiberglass. All those layers mean that no light can seep through. PVC Blackout fabric is ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, kids’ rooms and more!
All of our PVC blackout blinds are made to measure to your windows so you can ensure there is no interrupted sleep and light creeping in. If you’re measuring outside of the window recess, ensure you add additional length to your width measurement to remove the potential of light shining through the sides.
Blackout : Fabric Fronted
The Fabric Fronted Blackout Blind collection provides you with the light-blocking properties expected from a blackout blind, but with the vibrancy of the colours and patterns you’d expect to find on fabric blinds. The fabric is backed with an additional light blocking material making it impossible for exterior light to penetrate the fabric, casting your room into total darkness.
Screen FabricScreen fabric is an easy and stylish way to shade your room for direct sunlight. Popular for spaces where screens need to be viewed, which can be obscured by bright light, a screen fabric has a more open style weave than other dimout fabrics, and certainly more so than blackout fabrics.Light is allowed through and it is possible to see through the fabric to some extent, but glare is reduced to a minimum. Not only is it super-effective in aiding home offices, television rooms and other spaces that can be disrupted by glare, but it is also a clean, modern-looking fabric.
