Choosing bathroom window treatments can be tricky. Of course you want to achieve the right look, but functionality, including privacy and moisture resistance, also need to be considered. There are quite a few options out there that you may not have thought about and hopefully the ones featured below will give you some ideas.
Top down/bottom up
is a perfect window treatment feature for a bathroom. Privacy can be maintained while still allowing natural light in. Shades with this option can be lifted from the bottom as well, providing a variety of light control options. This type of shade lift is available in roman, cellular, woven wood and pleated shades.This Levolor Roman shade
has a cheerful stripe pattern which brightens up this bathroom.
Levolor® Roman Shade: Bodrum Stripe
The light coming in from all of these windows is controlled yet flexible with two different cellular shade options. Bali® SkyTrack
shade is covering the skylights and Bali® DiamondCell® Cellular Shades: Gallantry
with the top down/bottom up feature are covering the windows behind the bathtub. The skylight shades also offer a wand for more convenient operation.

Levolor® Natural Woven Wood Shade: Sisal Textures
Faux wood blinds
are another great option for bathroom windows. While having the look of a natural wood blind, they are among the easiest window treatments to maintain. Requiring only a quick wipe down for cleaning is a huge benefit because bathroom window treatments tend to attract more dust and dirt due to being in an often humid environment covering open windows. Additionally, they are available in such an array of colors, there is sure to be a match to coordinate with any bathroom décor.

Composite wood shutters are also ideal for a bathroom because they are resistant to moisture, will not warp, and are easy to clean, all while looking fabulous.
