Shades in a bathroom must first provide privacy, and they also need to be able to withstand high levels of humidity. This section has our recommendations for bathroom window shades.
If the window is near the tub, shower or spa, you'll want a material that won't warp, crack or mildew. Faux wood blinds and shutters made from either durable vinyl or composite wood materials are perfect in this case. If your bathroom has good ventilation or the window is away from a water source, a non-cotton fabric treatment can provide a bright splash of color and soften the decor.
things to consider:
Balancing your needs for privacy and natural light can be tricky, but the top down/bottom up option available on many styles of window shades let's you cover the bottom part of the window while lowering the shade from the top, allowing light in and humidity out. The slats on faux wood blinds and shutters can be tilted upwards to admit some light while maintaining privacy.
