Light and Airy Bathroom Window Treatments
If you have space beneath your bathroom window, full-length curtains are a glamorous choice. This luxurious spa bathroom features light, airy curtains behind a freestanding tub. White blinds provide more light-blocking power without detracting from the open feeling of this bathroom.

Cordless, top-down/bottom-up cellular shades like these offer the best of both worlds in lighting and privacy. Pull the top of the shade down to let in natural light while leaving the lower part of the window covered.
With traditional corded shades, the lower window is the first to be uncovered — not ideal for the bathroom. This bathroom uses lovely cream shades, but you can get similar cellular shades in gray, green and many other colors. Again, outdoor shades are a good choice.

Frosted Bathroom Window
Frosted or tinted windows offer another winner in the privacy department. If you’re installing new windows, purchase them this way. Otherwise you can apply frosted window film after the fact. Some films come with decorative designs. For double- or single-hung windows, the top window is often left unfrosted.
Simple Bathroom Window Treatments
Horizontal blinds are one of the most popular bathroom window treatments for many reasons. They’re simple, customizable and long-lasting, and they come in moisture-resistant materials like faux wood and vinyl. This creamy marble tile, white tub and white bathroom counter pair perfectly with brown faux wood blinds.

Bathroom Café Curtain
If you have tall windows and want to let in natural light all the time, café curtains are just what you need. These bathroom window treatments give plenty of character to any room, but they’re particularly well-suited to kitchens and bathrooms.
They work for almost any window — over the sink, behind the toilet or next to the tub. These thick white café curtains with grommets have a similar look. For a splurge, Ballard Designs offers nearly identical café curtains with rings.
Green Roman Shades
Pearly white bathtubs, toilets and sinks look expensive with green bathroom accents. A green vanity, green shades and green tile are all trendy bathroom design elements. Add humidity-loving bathroom plants to complete your bathroom décor. These rich green Roman shades add a luxurious touch to any bathroom.

Louvered Shutters and Roman Shade
Faux wood interior shutters with center tilt rods give this bathroom unmistakable Southern charm. Roman shades in a bold green print provide additional light blocking while tying together the white shutters and green tile. These shutters make it easy to control light levels while maintaining privacy. Find similar white faux wood shutters from The Home Depot.
