When it comes to bathroom windows, there are two factors that take the highest priority: privacy and functionality. You want to choose window treatments that satisfy these two important criteria first, and only then should you start to consider their decorative value.
Let our window replacement contractor experts at California Energy Consultant Service help you find inspiration in getting the best window treatments for your bathroom windows with these handy tips.
If you’re looking for an option that can fit almost any design style, there’s nothing better than wood. Unfortunately, wooden blinds perform extremely poorly in the high humidity of a bathroom. Luckily, faux wood blinds offer a great balance between the simple elegance of wood grain textures and the high moisture resistance of vinyl.
Faux wood is also relatively easy to clean as its heat-tempered surface makes it so that dust and dirt do not readily get stuck on its surface. Its vinyl composition also makes these blinds impervious to common wood problems like chipping, mildew and rot.
Light and Airy
The home performance of fabric curtains offers a fair level of privacy without sacrificing natural lighting. Café curtains are perfect for hiding away private moments in the bathroom, but keep in mind that these window treatments can still show silhouettes from the outside. This means you will want additional treatments for the areas you don’t want to share to the public.
However, if the soft designs of fabric curtains do not appeal to you, you can always try…
Roman shades are made from pieces of sturdy fabric material designed to withstand the moist environment of bathrooms. These curtains offer adequate privacy but you also have the option of opening them up to get better lighting.
