Classic Shade Statement
Make your bathroom window beautiful with a handsome roman window shade. The warm brown color in the fabric echoes the tones found throughout the rest of the bath in tile and cabinetry. The checked pattern is subtle, yet interesting. Fabric ties allow you to lower the shade if needed, but are best suited for fixed treatments.

Cute Cafe Curtain
A simple cafe curtain-style window treatment can be the perfect finishing touch to an elegant bathroom. Placing the cafe curtain so that it covers the lower half of the window ensures privacy while letting in plenty of light. To add sparkle, leave the top half of the window bare so sunlight can stream into the room.

Classic White Blinds
For bathrooms with privacy issues, particularly those on the ground floor, wood blinds are a slam-dunk design decision. They are easy to operate: simply twirl the wand to close or open. They also clean up with a quick dusting and can hold up to moisture in a wet room. Choose a finish that matches your window trim.

A Hint of Print
Create a romantic look in your bathroom by hanging curtains that barely graze the floor. This treatment is simple yet stylish and gives the illusion that the window extends to the floor when the curtains are closed. Using a bold black fabric is a nice foil for pastel walls and makes it easy to match artwork frames that tie the scheme together.

Elegant Curtain Panels
Floor-to-ceiling curtain panels add a graceful touch to an otherwise minimal and classic bathroom. If you want to hang curtains that skim the floor, be sure that they will stay dry. This look is best reserved for an adult bathroom retreat where the curtains can add privacy if needed while adding a finished layer to the windows.

Screen from View
The secret to dressing an arched top window in a bathroom is to worry about the lower half of the window. If fabric window treatments don’t make sense for your space, get creative and use a folding screen in front of the window. It creates a solid wall for maximum privacy.

Matching Chevron Shade
In bathrooms where privacy isn’t an issue, a valance or a flat shade that won’t be lowered often is a good choice. Repeat the window fabric on the shower curtain for cohesion and color.

Custom Designed Shades
A custom shade looks grand when hung at the ceiling rather than within the window frame, creating the illusion of a larger window.
