Bathroom Window Treatments, Which One Is For You?

The best bathroom window treatments are ones that look luxurious without sacrificing the functionality of the windows. A myriad of bathroom window treatments is available in different themes and color schemes, and they can complement the interiors of your bathroom.

Bathroom window treatments can have different materials that suit the décor accordingly. Water-resistant materials are all the rage in regards to bathroom window treatments. The most in-demand ones in such category are made out of plastics and vinyl, such as the EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) or PEVA (polyethylene vinyl acetate) and faux wood. They are known to be strong, durable and are not very costly. The faux wood is particularly trendy due to the look of wood finish but not like wood, it doesn’t swell or wear away when you put it in contact with water. Such materials are quite easy to clean due to the fact that they can be washed and wiped with sponge or wipe cloth, hence the easy maintenance.

Other window treatments ideas include fully revamping your window by means of changing its basic form. You can efficiently do this when you add different window styles lke the awnings, bay windows, stained glass, Japanese styled woven bamboo windows, fancy grilles, fully or partially glazed work, casement windows, as well as Jalousie windows.

You can put in more luxury to your large bathroom when you infuse your bathroom window treatments using miniature clerestory windows. Acrylic glass block windows play a good amount of role in prettifying the bathrooms.

For your current windows, you can use curtains and draperies. Curtains and valances are available in a wide array of of colors and patterns. There are so many different materials and fabrics such as cotton, vinyl, nylon, and plastic, just to name a few. Before you buy the curtains, see to it that the material is colorfast, strong and would not wear away due to soap scum. You can avail of all kinds of valances for your bathroom window treatments.

Any ideas about what I could use to make a RUSTIC, unique shower curtain for my bathroom?

Question by KristenCO: Any ideas about what I could use to make a RUSTIC, unique shower curtain for my bathroom?
I’ve just redecorated my bathroom to be very RUSTIC. (We live out in the sticks, so it’s appropriate.) I’ve painted it earthtones, and all of the new fixtures are in old barnwood or twig. The soap dispenser is an old Mason jar, etc. For me, the better. I’m trying to think of a great, rustic idea for a shower curtain. I used burlap in another room, so I don’t want to use that again – any other ideas? Ideally something I could use for window treatments would be nice, too. I’ve thrown around the idea of doing a patchwork quilt-looking shower curtain, but I’m not sure if that’s rustic enough.

You have some really creative ideas. I think that you could do a patchwork quilt shower curtain, you just have to choose the right fabrics and design in order to get the rustic look. For this, the “right” fabrics would include homespuns (woven plaids, checks or stripes) and muslin, both relatively inexpensive fabrics. You have two options with the homespuns – either cut everything very carefully to keep the lines straight, or deliberately cut them very noticeably off grain. If you do this, you expose bias edges which are stretchier than the straight of grain. Try foundation piecing it (also called “paper piecing”) if you do this, as that will help stabilize the fabric. A log cabin block is idea for your project, because it can be foundation pieced, it is fairly easy to make, and it is a rustic design. If you use muslin for your foundations, you can just sew the blocks together without any batting or backing. You need to fold the muslin from one side over the joining seam between blocks, tucking the raw edge under, then appliqué it down.

I live in a mobile home and in my master bathroom, I have a frosted glass window by the garden tub.

Question by ivanmyheart: I live in a mobile home and in my master bathroom, I have a frosted glass window by the garden tub.?
The problem I’m having is that from the outside, you can kinda see the outline of the person who’s in the tub when they’re standing, as in, when I get out of the tub. So my question is this: does anyone have any ideas on window treatments that would look good right there, in the bathroom? Please give details….I really appreciate it!!

The humidity in your bath is a huge factor in determining what you should do for window treatments. Anything fabric or cloth or organic (bamboo etc) will just get moldy and mildew. Your window treatments, over time will grow it too, in a humid bathroom. Stick with plastic blinds, easily cleaned!

You could also try covering it from the outside maybe with a small fence, awning, etc.
