There’s nothing like spending some time relaxing in your bathroom, whether you like long, hot showers or soaking in a tub full of bubbles. Your bathroom should be a retreat, and one way to make it look extra special is with a great window treatment. Bathrooms are a tricky area, as whatever you have needs to give you privacy, match your style and continue to look great in high humidity. Here are our top picks for looks that do just that:
If you choose blinds made from mildew resistant fabrics, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy the simplicity of a roman blind. Available in a wide range of fabrics, these blinds can be plain and understated or highly patterned, all while delivering the privacy that you need.
Wood effect blinds
Real wood isn’t a great choice for bathrooms, as it tends to go mouldy quickly, but if you want the look without the problem, choose PVC or vinyl faux wood blinds.
Perhaps the most diverse of all treatments, waterproof roller blinds offer a wide range of designs and give you the option of complete privacy or almost complete openness. Browse from a wide selection online, like these PVC waterproof roller blinds.
If you don’t need complete privacy, then Café curtains (curtains hung over the lower half of the window) are a great option if you’d like to preserve both your modesty and part of your view. If mildew becomes a problem, look at these cleaning tips from Reader’s Digest: http://www.rd.com/home/cleaning-organizing/mildew/.
Made from vinyl, bathroom shutters have a clean, modern look that suits many different rooms. They’re easy to clean – just wipe them down and they look good as new. They also give you effective privacy if you need it.
If you don’t have concerns about privacy, then you could simply dress your bathroom window with a valance. This gives you the ability to style the room to your liking without cutting out too much light.
There’s no reason why you can’t mix and match these ideas to create something to your unique style – roller blinds and valance, or cafe curtain style shutters, for example.
Whatever your style, whether you want to flood your bathroom with light or keep out prying eyes, there is a solution to meet your needs.
