How to Choose Window Treatments for Your Bathroom

Bathroom windows are some of the hardest windows to select treatments for in your house.  

Just think about it. Bathrooms can be a nightmare if you choose the wrong kind of window treatment.  

Bathrooms are generally tight spaces with high humidity, temperature fluctuation, and enough water to warp wood into a ‘C’ shape.  

You should be picky about the type of window treatment you are willing to install in your home.  After all, a fine window treatment is worth its weight in gold.  

With that in mind, some window treatments are perfect for your bathroom, and others should not be considered.  

In this post, we will go over the window treatments you should consider for your bathroom window.  

Bettering Your Bathroom 

In general, there are three types of window treatments that are perfect for your bathroom. 

These options are as follows: 

  • Faux wooden blinds 

  • Vinyl roller shades 

  • Vinyl/aluminum blinds


We have selected these options foremost because they stand up to high humidity and moisture extremely well. 


That means you won’t have to worry about these window treatments warping or melting during a particularly hot shower. 

Not only that, but these window treatments provide superior coverage and privacy, meaning your bathroom stays private.  

You can customize these treatment types however you choose.  

Just make sure you avoid natural wood and soft plastics for your bathroom window treatments as they are easily warped and melted by heat and water. 

Qualities of a Perfect Bathroom Window Treatment 

Let's say you want to break from the mold and go in your own direction. 

Blinds Plus has the most extensive options when it comes to window treatments in our showroom. We are confident you will find the perfect fit.  

But what do you need to consider when shopping for bathroom window treatments? 

Here are a few key characteristics: 



Bathrooms are wet and humid. Water from the tub or shower can easily splash across the room and hot showers make for high humidity.  

Treatments should be made from water-resistant materials to ensure that your treatments are not warped and that mold or mildew does not grow.  

Faux wood and vinyl are ideal for bathroom environments for this very reason. 

Not only that, but water-resistant materials are a sinch to clean. Just use soap and water! 



The bathroom is a very private place. You need window treatments that ensure your neighbors cannot see in. 

Look for treatments that provide complete coverage.  

Aluminum blinds or roller shades are perfect (especially for ground floor bathrooms) as they provide total coverage while remaining bathroom resistant.  


When you are trying to relax in a hot, soapy bath, the last thing you want is to be blinded by a beam of sunlight.  

Look for a window treatment that is adjustable so you can get an infusion of soft, natural light while keeping the harsher rays out.
