When choosing window treatments, certain areas of the home may prove to be challenging. Consider, for example, the bathroom, a high-traffic room where moisture is abundant and privacy is paramount. Issues to consider when selecting a bathroom window treatment include:
• Privacy: Privacy is the utmost concern in bathrooms. To ensure the privacy of your family and your guests, choose a window treatment option that blocks the view into your bathroom. This is particular concern if your windows face those of the homes adjacent to you, or your bathroom windows are otherwise visible to your neighbors. Most window treatments will provide the necessary privacy while you soak in the tub, but you may prefer one style of shade, curtain, or blind over another.
• Heat and Humidity Resistance: In our coastal area, where we have hot and humid summers, water resistant fabrics are a great choice for window treatments that are adjacent to your shower or bath. With water resistant window coverings, you don’t have to worry about splashes of water ruining your window treatments. As shown in this Better Homes and Gardens photo feature, the color and style options for water resistant fabrics are almost endless. From modern to traditional styling, we can help you choose the window treatment to match your home decor.
• Ease of Cleaning: Because you want to keep your bathroom tidy, you may want to consider a shutter or faux wood blind that is humidity-safe, stain-proof, and easily cleaned. These shades won’t warp in the heat, making them an excellent option for your bathroom.
