A bathroom is supposed to be a room where you can feel comfortable and surround yourself in luxury. But you also can’t compromise on functionality and one overlooked area in this is the window. We feel like we have very few options to cover our bathroom windows when, in actual fact, there are lots of options out there.
Best Bathroom Window Treatments
The best window treatments NYC has to offer come in lots of different materials to match your personal design. The materials have to be water resistant, of course, but there are plenty of options out there. A few popular materials include:
- Faux wood
- Polyethylene vinyl acetate
- Ethylene vinyl acetate
These are really durable and strong, yet surprisingly affordable. Faux wood looks particularly good, because it will give the illusion of a natural material in your bedroom. Real wood isn’t suitable, however, as it will expand and crack when subjected to moisture. An added benefit of the above materials is that they are really easy to clean.
Changing Your Window
You can also decide to complete change the window in your bathroom itself. You can use frosted glass to have all the privacy you need, while still allowing natural light to come in. If you really want to create something beautiful, you could install a bay window, an awning, jalousie windows, or casement windows for instance. If you want a bit more privacy than glass can offer you, you could add a fancy grille, some Japanese woven bamboo, or opt for artistic glazed work instead.
Another really cool option you have is to large miniature clerestory windows inside your bathroom itself. These are glass blocks that are particularly useful in really large bathrooms, as they give you the opportunity to section the room off while playing with the light.
Curtains or no Curtains?
Few people decide to install curtains in their bathrooms. Fabrics are usually not very suitable to keep in high moisture environments, after all. However, there are plenty of fabrics that are fully water resistant nowadays. If you have a really large, rectangular bathroom, for instance, you could opt to have a freestanding bath somewhere in the middle, perhaps on a platform, and to have one wall made completely out of windows with sumptuous curtains and drapes hanging from them. It really is the ultimate in luxuriousness. True, this is also the more expensive option, but it is certainly one to consider.
Where to Find Window Treatments
Thanks to the internet, it is now possible for everybody to become an interior designer. You no longer have to have an eye for things, you can simply refer to sites such as Houzz, Home & Garden, or Pinterest to be inspired by the ideas of other people who have a natural flair for design. There are some fantastic ideas for bathroom windows available on such sites. Best of all, once you have chosen your design, you will be able to actually find the blinds or curtains you need online as well.
