Bathrooms are more than just a place to shower or bathe. Some homes today are built with bathrooms bigger than many guest rooms. Bathroom shades and bathroom window blinds are now an integral part of the bathroom decorating decisions.
Bathroom window shades require considerations that don’t matter with window blinds and window shades for other rooms. The biggest difference is that the bathroom window treatment has to be able to handle the constant humidity that results from hot water running in the bath or shower.
Faux wood blinds are a good solution for those windows where you want a horizontal blind for your bathroom window treatment. The SelectBlinds brand of faux wood blinds are available as 2” horizontal blinds, and also as 2 ½” horizontal blinds. The 2 ½” horizontal blind provides a richer plantation shutter type of look. Either size provides the advantage of a warp resistant, color fast material that looks like a real wood blind.
Aluminum mini blinds are also a great horizontal blind solution for your bathroom window covering needs. The SelectBlinds aluminum mini blinds offer a great color selection, and are available in 3 sizes. Aluminum mini blinds can be ordered with ½”, 1”, or 2” horizontal slats. Aluminum mini blinds will not warp, and the colors are actually baked onto the aluminum, assuring years of use with no fading to the wide variety of colors.
Privacy is a key consideration when ordering your bathroom window shades. Top Down/Bottom Up is a very cool feature that lets you lower the window shade from the top, as well as raises it from the bottom. TDBU is available on several styles of cell shades and roman shades. Cell shades and roman shades can be used in most bathrooms, but should not be used for a window covering that is actually in the shower, as the constant flow of water will severely shorten the life of your shade.
