There’s something unique about the bathroom. Typically much
smaller than the other rooms in the house, yet usually set with a theme or some
type of extreme coordinating decorations to bring as much life into this little
room as possible. You could have the whole house decorated a certain way, with
the bathroom standing completely on it’s own as a separate environment.
But what about the bathroom window? Scaled down to size to
fit the smaller room, sometimes smaller doesn’t equal easier. You don’t want to
go with the popular long curtains or drapery as you would a living room or
bedroom, due to risk of becoming wet and moldy...but you also don’t want to
leave uncovered, because *ahem* you need your privacy.
We have some quick, fun, easy, and affordable ways to spruce
up your bathroom windows without compromising your style or bank account.
Blinds and Shutters
Composite Window Blinds and Composite Shutters are a great option for the
bathroom because they are made to withstand moisture. They effectively resist
fading and cracking from high humidity and are so low maintenance that they are
easily cleaned with soap and water. They are constructed to look like real
wood, but are a lightweight alternative that compliment a variety of decorating
styles. There are even 80 different color choices for wood paint and stains!
Roman Shades and
Roman Shades are a popular solution for those
who admire the elegant look of draperies, but want the modern conveniences of
window shades. These shades give control to the light filtering into the room
while keeping your space private and separate from the outside world. With the
cordless option, maximize the space you have without adding clutter.
Roller Shades have the advantage of being
highly customizable, allowing you to mix and match any way you want, while
easily filtering light to brighten up the bathroom or make as dark as your
prefer. With over 100 different styles and patterns - your bathroom can have
spark without adding multiple window treatments. However, feel free to add a Valance
to any of these options, complementing the blinds, shutters, or shades with
this beautifying addition that can even make the small window appear bigger.
Decorative Film is a fun, creative, and
inexpensive option giving you an entirely different look than any type of shade
or blind. This extremely simple yet beautiful option can give your bathroom
window that elegant stained glass look - fully blocking out visibility from the
outside for privacy, yet letting in tons of light and colors to really brighten
up the room and create a calm ambiance. Ability to be cut to any shape and size, this film still
protects against UV rays while the room lightens and darkens with the sun’s
natural cycle. Not a fan of stained glass windows? There are also oriental
themes available using decorative rice paper film!
With so many options, you can have your bathroom complete
with privacy and light in no time. Not to mention keeping your wallet happy.
Maybe some of the extra money you saved will allow you to check out some decorative hardware for unique rods, hooks,
and tassels that come in small window packages.
