Bathroom Window Coverings



Choosing window treatments for your bathroom is a significant decision, impacting both the aesthetics and functionality of the space. To make the right choice, several key factors need consideration.


First and foremost, it's essential to recognize that the bathroom is often the most humid room in your home. The location of your bathroom windows becomes crucial in this context.


Our comprehensive guide offers insights into a range of options, from waterproof shutters to moisture-resistant window treatments. By exploring these possibilities, you can find the perfect balance between durability, light control, privacy, and style. The ultimate goal is to create a bathroom environment that is both relaxing and highly functional.

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades Fabric: Jewelstone   Color: Kyanite

Add Softness to Your Bathroom with Roman Shades


Roman shades, with their elegant fabric folds, offer a versatile solution to add a soft touch to the appearance of ceramic or porcelain features in your bathroom. If your bathroom is predominantly white or neutral, these shades can introduce a touch of color.


Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer a wide variety of options when it comes to colors, textures, and opacities. What makes them unique is their Top-Down/Bottom-Up Roman shades system, offering the flexibility to open the shades from the top, bottom, or any position in between. This feature enables you to maintain privacy in your bathroom while still allowing natural light to filter through.

Woven Wood Shades: Naturally Soothing


Crafted from natural materials such as bamboo, grasses, reeds, and jute through handweaving, woven wood shades can establish a serene atmosphere in your bathroom, enabling you to unwind and relish a soothing bath at day's end.


Similar to Vignette shades, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades offer the convenient Top-Down/Bottom-Up option. This feature not only helps you maintain privacy in your bathroom but also preserves your outdoor views.


It's important to note that you have the flexibility to use Provenance shades on their own or with a room-darkening liner. This liner operates independently from the front-facing fabric and serves the dual purpose of enhancing light control and creating a striking contrast with the natural materials of your shade, thereby accentuating its texture.


Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters   Color: Bright White
Cadence Soft Vertical Blinds in Hampton Ivory Tower

Sheer Vertical Shades


Sheer vertical shades have soft fabric that diffuses light and rotates. They combine the functionality of blinds with the beauty of drapery panels. 


Sheer vertical shades protect floors, furniture, and art from UV rays while still allowing you to see outside. 


Choose sheer vertical shades, and you’ll always have light when you want it and privacy when you need it.


Skyline Gliding Window Panels in Maya Zanzibar Grey

Panel-Track Blinds


Discover the contemporary allure of panel track blinds. These flat fabric panels glide smoothly on a track, providing a sleek alternative to traditional vertical blinds. They open and close effortlessly to optimize your view and offer excellent light control.

Palm Beach in Bright White



The honeycomb pattern captures air in separate compartments, creating an extra layer of insulation at the window. Cellular blinds keep rooms cooler in summer by blocking sun rays and warmer in winter by preventing heat from escaping. Their uncomplicated design imparts a contemporary ambiance to any area.


Compared to traditional vertical blinds, shutters have a warm, rich feel. And they’re a great choice for high-traffic areas—they’re as durable as they are beautiful.


Because shutters come in sunburst and horizontal louvers, they’ll fit almost any opening, from angles and arches to hexagons. That makes coordinating other window treatments in the same room seamless.


Faux Wood Shutters: Durable Opulence


Exuding a timeless, luxurious aesthetic, shutters can be compared to bespoke cabinetry for your windows. Yet, when contemplating the use of shutters in your bathroom, it's crucial to choose faux wood shutters designed to endure high temperatures and moisture.


In this regard, Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are an excellent choice. These shutters are crafted with a UV-resistant polysatin compound, ensuring they won't warp, crack, fade, chip, peel, or discolor over time, even in high-humidity conditions. This durability is particularly crucial if your bathroom windows are located near your shower.


Unusually shaped windows can add a touch of drama and elegance to any bathroom. The good news is that Palm Beach shutters can be customized to cover windows of various shapes, including arches, angles, and hexagons. If you desire more natural light, you also have the option of installing them on just the lower portion of your bathroom window.
