When deciding how to decorate your bathroom, there are two things you will want it to have when it's complete: style and privacy. Window shades offer the perfect opportunity to accomplish both, by adding a unique flair to your space as well as making it as private as you want it to be. There are hundreds of different designs to consider, and the options can be overwhelming. However, with keeping your vision in mind and doing a little bit of research, you'll be sure to find the right choice for you. There are a number of options to consider, and here are a few you might want to look into:


If privacy is the main thing you're looking for when decorating your bathroom, blinds may be the most obvious choice as they offer plenty. Blinds are also extremely easy to keep clean, and will hold up well in a damp environment. If you do decide on blinds, keep color in mind; choosing a finish that matches your window trim will give the room a more polished look.


If you like the idea of blinds but want something that feels a bit more classic and sophisticated, shutters are a good option. As with blinds, shutters are low maintenance, and you can let in as much or as little light as you like. Shutters look best when painted in bright, cheerful colors. [wpob id="11"]

Roman Shades

Another classic look that works well in most bathrooms is Roman style window shades. They can be lowered for privacy, or tied back with decorative window ties. These shades are a good choice if you have a custom bathroom, because they come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Whatever your design choices are, it shouldn't be hard to find some that are a good match for you.

Cafe Curtains

Cafe curtains allow plenty of light, since they only cover the bottom half of the window. These are a popular choice for arched windows, but can add style and flair to any bathroom.  

Draped Curtains

Do you want to go beyond the ordinary and create a space with a stunning look and elegant feel? Graceful floor-length curtains will add romantic style to your bathroom, as well as plenty of privacy. If you like you can even combine styles; sheer curtains over shutters or blinds can give you the elegant look you want, as well as giving you more control over the amount of light you want to let inside.

Shoji Screens

If you want to add a unique touch to your bathroom, you may be interested in Shoji screens. These will afford you privacy and soft, filtered light, along with adding Asian flair. While the design is Japanese, these shades fit in with most modern, western designs as well. These are only a few of the ways that you can make your bathroom interesting, classy, and unique. With so many design options to choose from, there's no reason to settle for a boring bathroom! When it comes to designing your bathroom, as with any other room in your home, you're only limit is your creativity.
