If you get replacement windows in Truckee, CA and place a window in your bathroom, you know it will be a nice feature. Having a window in the bathroom allows for ventilation, when needed, and you can get some natural light into the space that might otherwise be too dark. However, bathrooms require privacy much of the time so you will likely want to cover up a window with some sort of window treatment. What would work best for that space in the house? Bathrooms have different needs than any other room in the house, after all.
If you have a window above your bathtub, you’ll need something that is waterproof in case the kids take a bath and get to splashing. You also want that waterproof feature because you never know when moisture from the air will soak into the treatment. You should stay away from any fabrics and instead consider vinyl blinds or perhaps shutters, also in a vinyl material. You can get a faux wood look that is durable, but also resistant to mold and moisture so you don’t have to worry about what happens in the bathroom.
If the window is in the wall in another area of the bathroom, splashing isn’t as big of a concern, but you still have to consider the moisture in the room. Perhaps you would want to go with something that can filter light, but give you privacy at the same time. A small sheer curtain, for example, can allow the natural light into the space, but make it hard for anyone to see inside. You could also get blinds that you can tilt in certain directions so you can see out and the light can get in, but no one can see in from outside.
If you have a skylight or window that is high up on the wall, perhaps you won’t’ have to cover it at all. Consider the usage of the windows if you are having a new one installed when you get new windows in other rooms. With the right placement, window treatments aren’t an issue. You could also get a window, like glass blocks, that lets light in, but doesn’t allow anyone to see in. There are plenty of options to think about.
