For many people the bathroom is a sort of sanctuary. It’s more than likely the only room where you can get 100% privacy. For this obvious reason, choosing a type of window blinds for your bathroom can be stressful if you don’t know where to start. I’m going to be giving you some tips and ideas in order for you to be able to choose a blind or shade that will satisfy you completely.
First, let’s think about what you want or need the most out of your bathroom. You of course need a lot of privacy and you more than likely want some natural light to shine in. A great option for this scenario is a top down/bottom up shade. This type of shade offers you the ability to operate window treatments (Roman Shades, cellular shades, pleated shades, woven wood shades and honeycomb shades) from the top down or bottom up which allows you privacy but at the same time gives you access to natural sunlight. This is one of the most versatile options out there which makes it perfect for bathrooms. You must however note that since bathroom window coverings will be constantly exposed to humidity, you should choose a style that is moisture resistant. One style I would recommend for this is cellular shades. They are usually made of polyester which is a great material that performs well in humid environments.
Now if you don’t want a top down/bottom up cellular shade and would rather go with something more traditional, I would recommend faux wood blinds. This type of blind is usually made of synthetic or composite materials that are naturally water resistant. In humid environments they will not warp like real wood. Another great feature you can add is a route less option. This adds privacy since the slats don’t have holes for the ladder strings to run through like a regular blind would. In addition to these features, faux wood blinds have a real wood look while still being budget friendly. They allow you to be flexible if you’re trying to stretch your budget.
Now that I’ve discussed some of the options out there, I would recommend thinking about what you are willing to spend. Once you have that figured out I would also suggest ordering samples. This is great if you need a color to match exactly. Have fun and remember to shop around as many online retailers have great deals weekly for window blinds.
