How To Choose The Best Bathroom Window Treatments

Window treatments are a necessary part of any bathroom. First and foremost, they provide privacy. We can all agree that’s pretty important in a bathroom. But there is also a major style factor when it comes to adding window treatments. The difficult part is deciding what type and style to choose.

Bathroom window treatments can include curtains, blinds, and shades, and there are enough options in each of these categories to make your head spin! Because of the endless possibilities, it makes this even more of a challenge to narrow down the perfect fit for your bathroom. So here are a few tips on how to choose the best bathroom window treatments for your home.

Curtains & Drapes

Curtains and drapes can add both style and function to your windows. But with so many fabrics, textures, and colors to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start.

First, consider the function of the curtains or drapes. If you’re looking for privacy, choose a heavy fabric that will block out light. If you’re trying to reduce glare or keep your home cool, choose a light fabric that will allow some sunshine through.

Next, take into account the style of your bathroom home. Curtains and drapes come in a wide range of styles, from formal to casual. Choose something that compliments the overall aesthetic of your home.

Finally, don’t forget about practicality. When choosing curtains or drapes, make sure they are easy to open and close. If you have young children or pets, look for fabrics that are resistant to stains and damage.

Keep in mind that curtains and drapes may be a little harder to install when you factor in how high to hang them and how long they should be.


When it comes to choosing blinds for your bathroom windows, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, consider the amount of light you want to let in. If you want to maintain privacy while still letting in some natural light, opt for blinds that can be closed tightly. If privacy is less of a concern, choose a material that will allow light to filter through while still providing some degree of coverage.

Next, think about the level of humidity in your bathroom. If it is high, make sure to choose a material that won’t be damaged by moisture. Finally, take into account the style of your bathroom. Choose blinds that complement the overall design and create an inviting space. With these factors in mind, you’ll be sure to find the perfect blinds for your bathroom windows. has a variety of color and material options that you will be sure to love.


First, when choosing shades decide what type of privacy you need. If your bathroom is located in a private area of your home, then you may be able to get away with lighter-weight materials that don’t provide complete privacy. However, if your bathroom is located in a more public area of your home or if it doesn’t have an exterior door, then you’ll need to choose materials that will provide complete privacy. One option is to choose shades that can be closed completely, such as roller shades or Roman shades. Alternatively, you could choose shutters or blinds that can be tilted to block out light while still allowing some visibility through the windows.

Next, consider the style of your bathroom. If your bathroom has a more traditional style, then wooden blinds or shutters might be a good option. If your bathroom has a more modern style, then sleek roller shades might be a better choice. There are also many patterned and textured materials available that can add interest to any space. This shade in our guest bathroom is a sem-transparent wood shade. It allows privacy when closed and natural light to come in when open and also looks great paired with the black window.

Finally, keep durability in mind. Because bathrooms are typically damp spaces, it’s important to choose materials that won’t be damaged by humidity. Roller shades and Roman shades are generally more durable options for bathrooms since they’re made from synthetic materials. If you do choose wooden blinds or shutters, make sure they’re treated with a moisture-resistant finish.

With these tips in mind, you should be able to find the perfect window treatments for your bathroom. By considering both function and style, you can find shades that will look great and last for years to come.

        Just wondering if there’s a version that doesn’t have grommets, since yours seem to be hung by rings? But there isn’t a non-grommet Quinn on the JC Penney site that I can see, so wondering if I’m missing something. Thanks!

    Hi! Great post! We are just building our home and have opted for black windows, with your designs being inspirational. We have large sliding, black doors in our kitchen. What would you recommend for window treatments there? Should we just leave them without coverings?

      That sounds like it’s going to look great! I would probably not do any since it’s a door. You might find that they get in the way.

      Would the wooden shades you used happen to be the Home Decorators Cut-to-Size Natural Cordless Light-Filtering UV Protection Bamboo Shades that can be cut to 35 in. W x 48 in. L? Just want to make sure I am ordering the correct ones. We have pure white walls and a black and white theme home too with the same Sea Smoke wood floors!
