Window Treatments, Shades and Blinds, Motorized Shades, Curtains and Other Bathroom Window Coverings

As a homeowner, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all the various choices in window treatments for your bathrooms. Should you choose window treatments, shades and blinds, motorized shades, curtains, or another type of window covering? Regardless of the window treatment you select, it should meet three requirements. These include moisture resistance, light control and privacy.

Blinds and Curtains That Can Withstand Humidity

Because bathrooms can be exceptionally humid, you’ll need to choose blinds that can manage moisture. Faux wood blinds resemble wood and are ideal for controlling humidity. These blinds are constructed from different plastics with some of them having compressed wood chips. To get more light in your bathroom, open the slats—for more privacy, close them. On a downside, faux wood blinds tend to be heavy.

Fabrics that are most suited for humid conditions are outdoor ones, such as upholstery fabrics that can endure considerable moisture and sunlight exposure. Consider using simple panels of upholstery fabric. To allow light to flow into your bathroom, use hold-backs for your curtains.

Privacy Considerations

Consider a room’s location. For example, a first-floor bathroom needs more privacy. A good choice is a cellular shade. This type of window treatment allows much light to filter into a room, while you can be invisible to your neighbors.

On the other hand, a third-story bathroom or one with windows facing a wooded backyard doesn’t need as much privacy. Therefore, sheers can work or even not having any window covering at all.

Motorized Shades for Bathrooms

You can also use motorized shades in your bathrooms. These window treatments, which give you added privacy and security, are programmed to both open and close when you’re not at home.

Many homeowners prefer them because they have less wear and tear than shades that open and close manually. What’s more, their cordless feature takes away the threat of a child or pet being entangled in cords that dangle.


Although vinyl window shades can tolerant humidity, it’s best not to install them in windows facing east or west. This is because sun exposure and high humidity can result in the shades curling over a period of time.

If you’re still confused about which window treatments you need for your bathrooms, don’t hesitate to contact us.
