Privacy with Polish: The Best Bathroom Window Treatments for Privacy

Solar Shade — 5% Metallic, Copper

Perfecting your bathroom’s décor is no easy feat. Whether you’re confined to a small space or have seemingly endless room for design, there’s a lot to consider. If your bathroom is fitted with a window, you’ll want to take advantage of natural light in a room that typically feels too small and dark — while keeping in mind that privacy is paramount in this room of the home.

But choosing the best window treatments for the bathroom doesn’t have to be hard. In this article, we break it down into three simple steps, ensuring you end up with custom window treatments that function beautifully — and look incredible, too.

Step 1: Choose Your Treatment

While this may seem like an obvious first step when selecting bathroom window coverings, it can be easy to start too far ahead in the process, getting overwhelmed with material options and hardware finishes before you’ve even started. The first step in finding the best window treatments for your bathroom is choosing what type of coverings will best suit your space. Here are your options:


Roller Shade — Jackson, Cafe

Simple yet sophisticated, Shades offer a minimalist look and feel that fits perfectly within the frame, making them the perfect bathroom window treatments for privacy. With the option of a stainless steel cord or cordless or motorized control, Shades offer unmatched ease of use, allowing you to effortlessly change privacy and light levels in your bathroom as needed.

Available in a variety of materials and functionalities, including Roller Shades, Solar Shades, Roman Shades, Woven Wood Shades, Cellular Shades, and Pleated Shades, finding a solution for your bathroom windows is all but guaranteed. With 700+ potential materials to choose from within the Shades category, finding a perfect match for your bathroom’s décor will be easy.


2’’ Wood Blind — 2’’ Faux, Nutmeg

Handcrafted by skilled artisans in the USA, The Shade Store’s custom Blind selection adds the element of superior craftsmanship to your bathroom windows. From wood blinds and metal blinds to vertical blinds — perfect for covering large bathroom windows — these traditionally favored window treatments are sure to be in style for years to come and make great bathroom window privacy options. 

Much like Roller Shades, Blinds are custom-crafted to fit perfectly within your bathroom window frame, making them ideal for small spaces where more statement-making window treatments aren’t necessary. Plus, a variety of colors and finishes ensures the perfect complement to your bathroom’s décor.

Outer Layer: Tailored Pleat Drapery — Victoria Hagan Oceana, Slate

Best suited for larger bathrooms, Drapery offers statement-making style with complete control over privacy and light levels. Often outfitted for floor-to-ceiling coverage, Drapery can make a room seem instantly more grandiose, and add a luxurious look that stands alone or layers effortlessly over in-frame treatments for added depth.

Available in a variety of styles, including Ripple Fold Drapery, Tailored Pleat Drapery, Grommet Drapery and more, there are endless ways to cover your bathroom windows while adding a little something extra to the decor. Bonus: With Drapery, you’ll also get to choose custom Drapery Hardware to give your bathroom an extra touch of personalization.

Step 2: Choose Your Material for Bathroom Window Privacy

Once you’ve selected your window treatment type, choosing a material is next. During this step, you’ll want to consider your personal taste and design scheme. For statement-making bathroom window treatments, choose a material with bold color or pattern. If you prefer to keep things more timeless, a solid material that’s rich with texture, like Linen, should do the trick. If you’d like something somewhere in between, Woven Wood is a stylish option that provides an artisanal look while still remaining neutral.

Step 3: Customize Your Bathroom Window Treatments

The final step in perfecting your bathroom window treatment selection is making it just right for your bathroom decor. From adding a Valance or Cornice to give your bathroom window treatment privacy ideas a clean, finished look to Tapes and Trims to tie your decor scheme together effortlessly, there are plenty of options for taking your bathroom window treatments to a new level of luxe. And don’t forget to choose your bathroom window hardware intentionally to match or complement your other bathroom fixtures!
