Whether your bathroom has a big window above the tub, or even a few small ones near or inside the shower, your bathroom windows require special kinds of window treatments as they need to not only address privacy concerns and natural light needs, but also need to be moisture resistant. Do you know how to choose the right kinds of treatments for the replacement windows in your Tucson, AZ bathroom? The following guide can shed some light on the options for your bathroom windows.
Let’s start with bathtub windows. Bathtub windows need a special kind of window treatment that can completely block the view and be easy to use from inside the tub if you’re taking a bath or even giving the kids one. Most importantly, bathtub window treatments need to be waterproof as splashes and steam are a common occurrence around at tub. Be sure to stay away from fabric window treatments for above your tub, as these will get musty and moldy quickly in the bathroom humidity.
Shutters are a great tub window shade solution. Look for high quality faux wood shutters that are durable and resistant to moisture and mold as they take the worry out of splashes and steam and are super easy to operate with their tilting louvers that also make it simple to get the exact amount of privacy and light you want. You can find shutters in tons of different colors to match your bathroom décor.
What about shower windows? These windows can be tricky to dress as they are exposed to direct moisture all the time, not to mention that they often come in small or awkward sizes. One kind of window shade option that might work is a shutter. Try high quality composite shutters that can let light in and help steam escape out while helping you maintain privacy and hold up to the daily water exposure. You could also try waterproof or vinyl shades for your shower windows as they can be easier to install, especially if you are in a rental or a short-term home.
Anther common issue modern homeowners face is dressing wet room windows. Wet rooms usually have a combined shower and tub space without a shower stall and with a drain directly on the floor. Completely waterproof window treatments are absolute musts in these rooms, so maybe a window with frosted glass is the best way to go. If you don’t want frosted windows, you can try faux wood shutters or vinyl shades.
