Which are the best blinds to choose if you have an allergy?

There are many types of window dressings which have Hypo-allergenic properties or are easy to keep clean and hygienic. Some stand out from the rest however and over the years I have come to form some firm favourites in this category that I would like to share with you.

Top 3 Picks for Hypoallergenic Blinds


Shutters can be easily cleaned or simply wiped down with a damp cloth

1) Shutters

Shutters are really easy to clean and keep free from dust. They can even be wiped down with a damp cloth (just follow with a dry cloth for a streak free finish). This makes them an excellent choice for anyone who suffers from dust allergies or for putting anywhere which requires an Anti-bacterial blind.


Anti-microbial Copper Operating Chains are ideal for health care environments.

2) Roller Blinds

There are hundreds of roller blind fabrics which are treated with chemical coatings to make them Hypo-allergenic and guard against certain strains of bacteria. At Surrey Blinds we have a huge range of fabrics which have been treated in this way, including many colours and patterns so they don’t have to be boring. Using an Anti Microbial Copper Operating Chain in a Silver or Gold coloured finish gives additional protection where needed. Roller Blinds are ideal in health care environments as well as in kitchens and bathrooms, where cleanliness is vital.


These blinds can be treated with a Hyginilac Wood Lacquer

3) Privacy Wooden Venetian Blinds

Wooden Venetian blinds can be treated with a Hyginilac Wood Lacquer coating which kills off bacteria for 10 years, making the blinds ideal for anyone who suffers from an allergy.
