How your Custom Bathroom Blinds Work
When you place the order for your blinds there might be a couple of things you want to consider.
Step 1: Choose your style
Have your personalised waterproof blinds for bathrooms made in one of two styles; relief and recess. Relief blinds attach to the outside of your window - on the frame or wall - and when pulled down will cover the window and its edges. Recess blinds are fitted inside your window frame and will sit on your windowsill when they are pulled down. Both have different benefits, and it's entirely up to you which one you would prefer.

This is where the blind screws to the window frame or wall and stands proud of the wall or frame. You must add at least 5cm in width to house the spindle fittings as well as the personalised blind.

The blind goes inside the 'box' of the window. We need to know the precise dimensions. We subtract 3.2cm from the fabric width to allow for brackets. The finished blind including brackets will equal your selected width.
Step 2: Measure your window
To make sure your blind is the right size, you'll need to measure your window, both from top to bottom and left to right. Our online design tool has selectable measurements, so whether you prefer inches, centimetres, yards or metres you're fine.
The important bit - for relief blinds you need to add a minimum of 5 cm onto your width to allow the spindle fittings to be housed without making your waterproof blind too small. For recess blinds, you need to give us the exact measurement. We will then make the necessary adjustments so that both the blind and brackets come to the width you have specified.
Step 3: Select your blind type
This part is where you choose the way that all the components come together to make up your blind. This is all really simple and done in the design tool. Let us know whether you have chosen a recess or relief blind, and make sure you provide the correct measurements for your blind type, as above. Choose whether the cord is fastened to the left or the right of the blind, and you can upgrade the white plastic cord to a silver metal one. You can at this point change your mind and change the material to a standard blind, but bear in mind that this allows some light through and will no longer have waterproofing.
Step 4: Create your print
Now it's time for the fun bit. Use photos, create your own design or add text to your custom bathroom blinds. Use a single shot, or upload multiple images and create your own picture collage. You can even check your blind using the design view button. This will show you exactly how it will look on a roller blind, and you can even zoom in to check over the finer details.
Step 5: Check Again
We know you've already checked your design, likely more than once, but you absolutely should double-triple-check every part of your design. We'll get in touch if we pick up issues with your images and resolution or quality, but you'll need to check the spelling if you have text and the positioning of your images. We make all of your blinds by hand, here in London and to guarantee a super speedy turnaround time we start as soon as we can after we get your order. So that we can do this, make sure that you are absolutely, positively happy with your design, and then submit your order. That's it, all done, and we can start making your waterproof window blinds straight away.
Custom Bathroom Blinds Product Information
All of our waterproof roller blinds for bathroom use are fire certified, so they have been tested and are safe to use in homes.
Passes to BS 5867, Fabrics for Curtains, Drapes and Window Blinds.
Child Safety Regulations mean that all blinds have to comply with EN13120. Contrado Imaging Ltd takes the following measures to comply:
- A safety breaker piece will be supplied, with any blind with cords and/or chains.
- We advise the recommended distance from the floor to the bottom of the chain will be at least 80cm.
- We supply the cord length at 2/3rds the length of your chosen drop.
- A warning notice comes attached to your roller blind.
- Installation instructions will be provided and must be available once the blind has been fitted.
- There will be a warning notice on the product packaging.
- Our company name and date of manufacture are included on the roller blind fabric.
These safety measures will be applied to every blind supplied by Contrado Imaging Ltd.
We supply all blinds with an easy to install safety breakaway clip. Simply push the last ball on each side of the blind cord, into each end of the safety clip; there should be an audible click. To connect both pieces of the safety clip, just push together until it makes a snapping noise. This will now make your roller blind cord a loop, that will come apart when it's pulled too hard. To avoid this when opening and closing the blind, ensure you pull the cord gently while guiding the cord along with your hands.
What My Custom Bathroom Blinds will Look Like
Your waterproof roller blinds will arrive already rolled up and assembled on the pole for you, with the fittings attached. Your design will be printed on the front of the blind and the back will be a plain white textured material, which is almost rubberised to the touch. The material we use for these custom bathroom blinds gives a deeper, more vivid colour than standard blinds (you can see this in the comparison picture above) and has an even feel to the front.
We add a few extra wraps to the fabric at the top of the blind by mirroring your design. This is done to make sure that the colours match up and so that you can't see the pole when the blind is all the way down. Make sure that you don't roll the blind down past the lower edge of the window to ensure that your blind doesn't separate from the pole. The extra wraps are not shown in the design interface, and you must ensure that you keep this part rolled up for additional strength.
