The bathroom is an important space in your house, and you want to be happy with its design and appearance. Just like your other rooms, the bathroom should reflect your personal tastes and design interests.
Bathroom window treatments provide privacy and add style to the space. Typically, you want them to offer light control, durability, and privacy, and the right window treatment can do just that – offer plenty of natural light when you want it and privacy when you need it.
Here is a list of our top eight favorite window treatments for Houston bathrooms.
Often, these curtains are designed to cover only the bottom half of a window, providing minimal coverage but ample natural light. They are best for use in upper-floor bathrooms or in rooms where passersby have a limited view. Fabrics used for café curtains tend to be lightweight or sheer, echoing the minimal design of the window treatment.
Roman shades offer a variety of fabric, color, and design options that make them ideal for any bathroom. Custom-made shades can blend flawlessly into your bathroom design and will add a touch of simple elegance to the space.
Roman shades offer complete privacy and block out sunlight when lowered, so they are typically made of thicker fabrics and materials. They also help absorb sound when pulled down. Even when raised, the shades will only allow limited sunlight to pass through them. Roman shades are ideal for bathroom spaces that feature multiple windows, large or oversized windows, or skylights. Make sure when choosing fabrics to find one that is suitable for high-moisture areas.
Floor-length curtains can add elegance to your bathroom. The type of fabric you select for your curtains will determine the level of privacy provided. Thicker fabrics will provide more privacy while sheer or lightweight fabrics may need liners to achieve the opacity you want. The design of floor-length curtains can offer functional versatility as well: You can allow the curtains to fall naturally or tie them back at the sides or center.
Faux wood blinds are a great way to give your bathroom the look of natural wood blinds without the risks of warping and mold. These blinds come in a variety of colors and styles in sizes to fit almost any window. They are also easy to clean. To add a pop of color, apply decorative cloth tapes to the blinds.
Shutters can give your bathroom a classic, fresh look. Unlike wood shutters, vinyl shutters won’t crack or warp. You decide the amount of natural light and privacy these shutters provide by opening and closing the shutters and adjusting the angle of the louvers. Shutters can provide full coverage or coverage only to the bottom or top half of a window. Vinyl shutters team easily with curtains to achieve a softer, more traditional look.
Woven texture blinds give your bathroom a neutral look you can incorporate into most designs. These blinds are easy to raise and lower, which allows you to change the amount of light in the room. The woven material allows natural light to pass through while providing privacy. To eliminate the appearance of a silhouette, you can incorporate a blackout liner.
If your bathroom has an arched or odd-shaped window that you do not want to cover, a window screen may be the answer. A folding screen placed at the bottom half of a window will provide complete privacy while allowing natural light into the room. You can choose from a screen mounted to the window frame or a free-standing screen that can be removed and stored anytime you want to open the window or allow in more sunlight.
If privacy is not a concern, valances are a great way to incorporate style and color. Originally designed to cover the curtain fittings and hardware at the top of a window, these treatments provide a nice frame for your window. You can incorporate valances into a bathroom’s design and add color or texture to the space. Valences provide zero privacy and could be the perfect choice for bathrooms that are not within view of passersby.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to selecting Houston window treatments for your bathroom. Use a single treatment or a combination to get the look and level of privacy and style you desire.
Whether you are redecorating a powder room, a guest bathroom, or your master bathroom, window treatments add a finishing touch to your design while providing the privacy you need. A window treatment that allows for a lot of natural light can add to the beauty of your bathtub or shower door while treatments that limit sun exposure can make an expansive, sterile bathroom feel cozy and relaxing.
