5 Best Bathroom Window Blind Ideas

Let’s face it when getting new window treatments for the house, we mostly tend to ignore our good old bathrooms. But, hey! Don't forget that bathrooms can quickly elevate your quality of life considering how underrated their interiors are.

Let's try to find the perfect bathroom window blind for you. And while we are at it, let's not overlook this important space because it needs a unique style that has both character and practicality.

So, whether you're starting from scratch or just want to revamp things, you've come to the right place. Picking new and modern bathroom window treatments is a quick and easy way to add style to the space along with some extra privacy. 

Ideas for a Bathroom Window Blind - Things to Think On

Bathroom blind ideas are the perfect way to put the finishing touch on a stunning design project.

Blinds are not only functional and fashionable but they also provide privacy and allow you to control the amount of natural light that enters a room. 

There is a wide variety of bathroom blind ideas to choose from, and each has its own advantages. So, it's important to give some thought to the atmosphere you want to create in the room before settling on a window treatment.

Bathroom window treatments need to meet three criteria, they need to:

  • Be durable (i.e. moisture resistant)
  • Add privacy
  • Control how much light comes in

The size of the bathroom and the location of the window can determine the perfect blind for your bathroom. PVC and vinyl blinds, or faux wood blinds, are great options for areas with high humidity. These are both moisture resistant and easy to wipe clean after getting wet.

Blackout blinds such as roller blinds or vertical blinds are other options to tackle bathroom privacy and light control. Let's explore more options right away.

1. Add a pop of colour

Whether your home has a traditional or modern design, a bright shutter blind can do wonders. It will add a contemporary splash of pattern and colour.

Full-height plans allow you to regulate both light and temperature. You can maintain your privacy and even add a layer of soundproofing and security to your private space.

2. Shutters

Having shutters installed is the pinnacle of a classic and tidy aesthetic. They're vinyl, so they won't warp or break like wood, but they still have that weathered look. Shutters always make a space feel more finished and luxurious. And there's no reason your bathroom shouldn't be as stylish as the rest of your home.

Shutters allow you the most amount of seclusion in a bathroom. 

3. Faux Wood Blinds

Unlike PVC, woven wood shades' natural appearance is a great complement to any home, whether it has a more traditional or modern vibe. These blinds soften the light entering the room while maintaining a sense of privacy.

Wooden blinds have been inspiring real homes for decades and are still the most evergreen choice for all kinds of rooms. These allow you to customize the level of light filtering in and the personal space you enjoy. 

4. Block out the light 

Venetian blinds are an excellent choice for a wet room or steamy shower room. Mostly because of their adjustable slats or louvres that give you a great cover over both light and unwanted publicity.

Venetian blinds also come in various colours and materials that are water-resistant and easy to clean. A great way to add a sleek look to your catalogue of modern bathroom ideas. When you measure correctly, these also fit nicely into a window frame and are even a great choice for a glass door. 

5. Make them waterproof

A roller blind with a stylized floral print is a great way to inject some pattern and natural allure into an otherwise sterile bathroom. Roller blinds are convenient because they fit neatly into nooks and crannies. They just need to be waterproof. 

Installing roller shades in a recess no longer necessitates worrying about the moisture. Instead, you can pick a waterproof fabric to make the most of the roller blind. Because of this, roller blinds are now fashionable and suitable for use in any room of the house. A great choice especially for small windows. 


Are wooden blinds suitable for bathrooms?

No. They can easily warp or swell with the bathroom's humidity and moisture.

Are roller blinds OK in bathrooms?

Yes, if the chosen fabric is water resistant.

Can you get waterproof blinds?

Yes. There exists a wide range of materials and fabrics that are waterproof.

What window coverings are best for bathrooms?

 Vinyl shutters, faux wood blinds, waterproof draperies, and any type of blinds in a water-resistant material work best for bathrooms.

Final Thoughts

So, you can choose from a wide variety of options. Out of them all, faux wood blinds and vinyl shutters really stand out. All these ideas can withstand the wet conditions of a bathroom without sacrificing privacy or aesthetics. Many other possibilities exist that may suit your bathroom's windows far better. Every homeowner has different expectations from their rooms. So, you do you!

No matter what you decide, take this as a sign to measure your windows, and choose your style, fabric, colours, or blind style correctly. In the end, don't forget to add your perfect finishing touch to make the blind suitable for your bathroom.
