Inspiring you with bathroom window dressings
These are available in many forms – roller and roman, plain or patterned. Top left is a good example of adding some colour and pattern to this country bathroom – by hanging the blind halfway, you get privacy but not a pattern overload. For varying degrees of privacy and to let in different levels of light through the day, choose a blind that can be pulled from the bottom and up the window – this way you have as much flexibility as possible. You can also find roller blinds in waterproof fabrics, which are perfect for shower rooms with lots of condensation.
The images below show a wide range of roman blinds – pompom edged, graphic, lace and patterned. Roman blinds are best in bathrooms rather than shower rooms as they are not waterproof; but they do add a lot of elegance and finish off a window beautifully.
If you are looking for a more structured bathroom window treatment, why not explore screens? The two below are great examples of how versatile they can be – on the left, a carved wooden screen adds texture and a bohemian vibe to the bathroom and creates a focussed wow area. On the right is a modern, more functional screen, used to protect the window from shower splashing. And by commissioning a screen in frosted glass, the designers of this bathroom have made it very slick and finessed.
For structure, texture and a style that looks works well with a wide variety of bathroom styles and architectural details, look no further than shutters. Probably the most expensive choice, but an investment worth making as these timeless beauties look great for years and years. You can get them pre-painted or painted to match the rest of your bathroom. Alternatively, to add warmth and an organic feel, have them made in oak.
