Window Treatment for the Bathroom: What Should You Look For
Generally, some of the most important considerations when choosing a window treatment for the bathroom are privacy, lighting, and moisture resistance. Here’s a quick overview of each and why they should be looked further into.
Privacy – Can the window treatment block outsiders’ views and does it provide ample coverage? If you have high windows, you may have more leeway in your choice. Regardless, you should check the privacy settings both from inside and outside your bathroom.
Light – How much natural light can it let in? This is especially important for small bathrooms. However, this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice total privacy to get enough lighting. One window treatment that offers a good balance of both is aluminum blinds.
Moisture Resistance – Can it withstand high humidity without warping or staining? Fading, warping, and mildew are just some of the effects of the indoor temperature changes, which practically make wooden blinds a poor choice.
