We may not spend the largest amount of our time in the bathroom, (well except when we take that much needed relaxing soak in the tub!).
Window treatments for bathrooms room are important yet rarely contemplated.
Let’s consider bathroom window treatments today for a few minutes.
Bathroom Window Treatments to Control Light and Privacy
Controlling natural light and privacy are two of the things we need to consider when selecting window treatments for the bath. Another very important factor is the window treatments ability to stand up to the often high temperatures and humidity of the room. Some fabrics and some products are better suited for the bath than others.
Two types of fabrics come to mind that are not suited for the bath – silk and linen. Silk will water spot and linen tends to shrink in the humidity.
Some hard treatments, such as shades and blinds have options with some better choices as well. We suggest using a top-down, bottom-up type of a shading so that you can let natural light flow into the room from the top of the window while making sure the privacy you need is available for the bottom of the window. Here are some of our photos with top-down shadings paired with fabric valances:
Below we have pictured some Hunter Douglas products that are really great for use in the bathroom. The first is their Palm Beach Shutters and second, Everwood blinds.
Bathroom Window Treatment Options
Hunter Douglas Palm Beach Shutters are made of a UV resistant poly-satin material that is guaranteed to never warp, crack, fade, chip, peel, or discolor even under extreme heat and moisture. Shutters are a great way to let in the natural light at the top while providing privacy at the lower section of the window.
Here are some of Kim’s bath photos featuring shutters as well –
Hunter Douglas Everwood products come in a classic neutral white finish that is ideal for high heat and moisture, made with polystyrene slats that are guaranteed against fading, yellowing, warping and bowing.

To add some softness and comfort to the room, making your relaxing soak even more enjoyable, fabric treatments are a great choice. A simple swag valance or draped panels will add the softness you desire.
