Bathroom Window Treatment Help

February 1, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Looking for ideas for this window in my bathroom. Right now I have 1 1/2 inch faux wood blinds.

Faux wood blinds are perfect for the bathroom. Looks like all you need is a valance.
I think your walls could use a bit of spicing up...how about a fun wallpaper?

A bottom up shade will give you privacy and light: [houzz=

Bottoms up top down shade , or a shutter with a divider rail will allow you to control your light and privacy with out being exposed.

If it fits your style perhaps adding a valance to dress up this windows.

I like the Valance idea. I like the paint color in the picture.
I like the bottom-up shades also but my neighbors house has a window that looks right down in my bathroom on that side of the house.
I don't want to spend the money on shutters for the bathroom.

You guys are awesome. Thanks for the comments.

A roman shade would do really well and you can find many different ones and in so many different fabrics these days. I would recommend a a neutral beige/burnish copper color striped with a crackle in gold.

They also make film you can apply to the window, that will make it hard to see in but still allow light in.
Perhaps a top down shade and film on the top so you still have the option to see clearly outside, if you need to.

This one is easy. You need decorative trim molding around the edge of the window and below the sill painted to match your other trim work. Then a faux Roman shade hung above window. The blinds are great and will give you light and privacy control but film would work also. The Petersiks of Young House Love just did their to their guest bath window, so head on over and dig that post up. Will totally finish off the window for minimal cost.

Something simple is the best option with all the hair spray that flies around a bathroom keeping a window treatment clean can be challenging!!!

I like the Roman Shades also. I think I'll start off by picking a color for the walls.

I'm planning to get a black mirror mate frame to go around the mirror. I sent off for color matches & they didn't have an exact match with my cabinets. Any suggestions for a paint color?

Since the window is not in a wet area, most any treatment will work. The printed shades from "The Shade Store" are pretty cool and can add some interest to the wall, http://www.theshadestore.com/product2/roller-shade-light-filtering

Replace the glass with frosted class and dress the window with a roman blind in a neutral or vibrant colour

i think shutter are the best answer, however a roman shade would be great as well, even if a frosting to the lower window may be desired

consider a printed fabric to add some style and then add a fresh coat of color on the walls

I agree with the froated glass idea. You get privacy without loosing much needed light.

I ordered a "stick-on" frosted glass for my rent house. You can cut a nice border or a design, if you want. The plastic sheet just adheres to the glass. You can pull it off and re-stick it as much as you want. No need to dust blinds or wash curtains. And, if you buy a good quality no one will know it's not the real thing.

I have a similar problem with a window on my back door. But I love to change things with the seasons. What I ultimately did was buy curtains and a swag that I can change with the seasons. Perhaps you can take the picture that you are wanting to keep to the store with you and just find curtains and a swag that matches, always keeping your eye out for other fabrics that you could change out when those get tiresome.
I also have a friend who got the frosted glass that Sarah Asher mentioned for her windows. While I would not like not being able to see out the windows, it definitely prevents others from seeing in. Also, if you get tired of tht pattern on the stick on window frost, you can get it off and change it when you want to.

Build a little frame around the window and then do the roman shade.

I would stay away from a fabric blind in that space it is really close to the bathtub and any splash up may damage the fabric. I would recommend a Pvc Shutter it would look great and you can get a split tilt bar so you can control the light and privacy in the space.

Try a cornice mounted to the ceiling to add height. You can make it yourself using foam house wrap, glue, betting and fabric.. Ver lightweight. Strange large window for a bath...

I think I'm leaning toward adding trim around the window & plantation shutters. I already have the frosted cover on the bottom half of the window because the window is at ground level so I can only see out of the top half of the glass.

I would go with the shutter idea. A beautiful deco molding can be ordered as part of the shutter. They work so well in a bathroom because of the tilt option, rather than messing with raising and lowering a shade. Think function first in a bathroom. Also, get the faux wood which can be easily cleaned.

Built in shutters with a pretty moulding would look lovely.

You could paint the walls a color from your pictures, a gold or camel. It would make the room warmer looking. If you paint you don't need anything on the wall. Then you can put candles on the side of the bathtub.

You don't need to add trim to you window . If you buy from a reputable place the shutters should have an option of really nice frames they can put for you so the shutter sits perfectly inside it.

I have a guy coming to paint the bathroom this Friday and Budget Blinds is coming out on the same day to give me an estimate on shutters. So, I'll ask him about the built in frame for the shutters.
