Whether located in a corner, next to the vanity, or even above the tub, a window in the bathroom can be beneficial. Not only will it allow in natural light, but the window will also help make your bathroom appear larger and more open. Unfortunately, privacy is most likely needed in your bathroom, especially when bathing and dressing. Thankfully, there are options for creating this privacy using one or more of these window treatments.
Plantation shutters are a great option for the bathroom's window for a few reasons. Constructed out of wood or faux wood materials, the shutters are durable and will last a good amount of time. They add a custom look to your bathroom, increasing the appeal and value of your home.
Of course, the main benefit of plantation shutters is that they can be closed when you want privacy and easily opened when you want to let in light.
Plantation shutters can also be ordered in a variety of custom sizes, which can be incredibly important if you have a bathroom window that is abnormally shaped. Consider having a professional measure the window to ensure that you order the exact size and configuration of shutters.
If you want to add a bit of color to your bathroom, consider roman shades for the window. These shades can be ordered in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing you to add personality to the bathroom, complementing other areas of the room's décor.
For instance, if you have an accent wall with wallpaper in the bathroom, match the shades to the color and print of wallpaper. If you have an upholstered vanity stool, matching the shade to the stool is also a possibility.
Roman shades can also be used for privacy or when you want the sun light to shine through.
Café curtains are another option you may want for your bathroom window. These curtains are basically just shorter versions of traditional drapes.
The curtains are hung on each side of the window, blocking the bottom half of the window for privacy needs. You can open the café curtains when you want to allow as much sunlight in as possible and then close the curtains when you are ready to bathe or dress.
Although most common in kitchens and breakfast nooks, café curtains can be easy and appealing window treatment designs for your bathroom window, too.
