Bathroom Window Treatments

Bathroom window treatments are often overlooked, but they shouldn’t be. The small space available in bathrooms makes every style decision more impactful, and the high humidity means the window treatments you choose elsewhere in your home may not be the best choice. That’s why we’ve put together a guide to help you narrow down your options. Pick which is most important to you–style or features–and start there.

By Style

Most bathrooms are relatively small compared to the other rooms in your house. That doesn’t make them less important. On the contrary, any decisions you make regarding style in your bathroom have a greater impact on the interior design of your home thanks to the limited space. In addition, since these window treatments are closed more often than others in the house, the window treatment itself is a great way to make a punchy style statement.

Here are some ideas to help you think through the style you want for your bathroom:

By Features

Since bathrooms have different needs than the rest of your home, the features of your window treatments may be more important to you than style. For example, bathrooms with poor ventilation create highly humid environments, which is not ideal for many types of window treatments.

We’ve selected some gorgeous window treatments from Hunter Douglas that are feature-forward without sacrificing style to help you think through the needs in your space:

  • Humidity Resistance
    Humidity is the most obvious challenge in selecting a bathroom window treatment since it can lead to mildew or warping in certain types of materials. That’s why we recommend faux wood materials for bathrooms, such as the Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters or the EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds from Hunter Douglas.
  • Temperature Regulation
    Bathroom windows are notorious for allowing in the cold during the winter, which can be uncomfortable with all that tile. Insulating window treatments, such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades or Sonette® Cellular Roller Shades, can be a great way to manage the temperature in your bathroom by trapping a layer of air that keeps the interior air warmer even when it’s freezing outside.
  • Combination of Natural Light and Privacy
    Privacy is clearly essential at certain times in the bathroom, but for lovers of natural light, there are alternatives to having a blackout shade pulled at all times. Silhouette® Window Shadings have s-shaped vanes for privacy suspended in sheer fabric that filters the sunlight while open. The opaque stripes of Designer Banded Shades can be aligned to allow sunlight in through the sheer fabric or offset to easily create privacy when needed.
