When shopping for bathroom window coverings, it’s important to keep the needs of your space in mind. Spacious bathrooms are few and far between, so most bathrooms benefit from window coverings that help make the space feel larger.
Embrace the Light of the Outdoors
The primary purpose of bathroom window coverings is to provide privacy. With that said, a light filtering window covering will still give you privacy while allowing natural light to filter in. Nothing makes a room feel bigger than natural light, so this is an easy, attractive option for small bathrooms. One thing to keep in mind is that sheet and semi-sheer coverings do not provide the highest level of privacy, so be aware of this when using them in a bathroom. However, sheer horizontal shades can be light filtering and will provide privacy when in the closed position or when titled in the open position for a view out.
Choose Colors Wisely
When it comes to bathroom decorating, color matters. A small bathroom can be widened and brightened by choosing to work with a lighter decorating palette. We recommend avoiding deep colors like black and gray in small bathrooms since these larger-than-life colors tend to make bathrooms feel cramped and cave like. Neutrals such as sand, eggshell, and taupe work well with a wide variety of bathroom styles and are easy to live with. Pastels such as lemon, powder blue, and pale green add interest to the bathroom without darkening it.
Sometimes people think that their bathrooms must share the same color scheme as the rest of their home, even if that means using colors that are too bold for a small room. If you feel this way, consider taking your favorite bold colors from the rest of your house and opting for the same color in a lighter shade. The effect will be stunning.
Making your bathroom feel like an open, inviting area by choosing the best bathroom window coverings for your needs is well worth the effort. Enjoy your brighter space!
