Wood Look Blinds
Just a few weeks ago I shared our new Blindster master bedroom wooden blinds with you and I had planned to show you what we did in our adjoining master bathroom, but you know… life. The last few weeks have been so full of “stuff,” both good and bad. We’ve had our fair share of bad luck lately with so many bumps in our kitchen renovation and people not showing up, to discovering a leak in my car leading to flooding, to finding out some of our ductwork was missing or not attached causing condensation issues and stains on our ceiling. Then of course, there is also the craziness of back to school, and sending my baby off to high school for the first time. Like I said, a lot of things have been going on over here! I fully intended to show you our new wood look bathroom blinds a couple of weeks back, so that the bedroom would be fresh in your mind, but c’est la vie! With the kids now back in school I am doing my best to start blogging a little more regularly again and today I wanted to finally take the time to show you our custom bathroom blinds. I wanted to share these with you in a separate post because of what happened when I ordered mine and how I came to settle on faux wood. I don’t want any of you making the mistake I was about to make! Thanks so much to Blindster for partnering with me on this project and providing the blinds for our new home. I was not otherwise compensated. All photos and opinions are my own.

The blinds that were originally in this bathroom when we moved in were “white” (I say it in quotes because these things were GRIMY!) and just old and not in great shape. You can’t tell how disgusting they were here, but take my word for it. I didn’t want to share with you a close up of their state because you wouldn’t be able to unsee it.
I really wanted wood because I love the timeless organic vibe they bring to a space, just as they did for our master bedroom. When I was submitting my order to Blindster, I listed each room, the window size, and what I’d like. Luckily for me, they informed me that wood would not be a great choice for a bathroom. Honestly, I felt like a dolt for not realizing that! Bathrooms are the most humid rooms in the house, so naturally wood blinds would warp over time in that kind of environment. I like my showers to be hot and steamy so they’d have no chance in there. My friends at Blindster pointed me in the direction of their custom faux wood blinds. I was provided with a few samples so I could choose the blinds that would work best with the Carmella wood blinds in our bedroom. I ended up selecting the Pecan faux wood which had a light graining effect and the perfect toasty warmth to coordinate with our bedroom. (I know the green looks a little black here, but I promise you the above shot is from my bathroom!)
These faux wood blinds are budget friendly and come in an array of colors including wood looks as well as some solid neutrals. They even have a gorgeous washed gray look that is perfect for modern spaces. I see so many flip houses these days that use grays, and these blinds in gray would be perfect in those bathrooms!
We have now had these blinds up for over a month and I am thrilled with the way they work with our aesthetic and their functionality. Our bathroom faces our back yard and we really need to have blinds on that window. Well, maybe more so our neighbors really need us to have blinds on the windows because no one needs to see that. 😉
I just love how the blinds bring in that earthy vibe I am going for in this space with the other wood and amber elements. (Also, that little plant on the ledge has grown so much!!!) If you have bathrooms needing a little privacy, I would definitely suggest checking out Blindster’s super affordable custom faux wood blinds.
