There are four main considerations for window treatment for a bathroom: privacy, light control, durability, and style.
Custom Bathroom Window Treatments
Humidity & Moisture Are No Problem
Bathroom window treatments have to balance the desire for privacy and light control with the moisture and humidity conditions inherent to bathrooms. 3 Blind Mice Window Coverings offers a wide range of products that deliver on all fronts, including waterproof options.
Privacy where it counts
The big difference with bathrooms is moisture. If you have a window in your shower, you won’t install a wood shutter, but a vinyl or composite shutter works perfectly; or opt for 2” or 2 ½” faux wood blinds as long as the water is not directly hitting the mechanisms.
Motorized or Automated Blinds
How annoying is it to step into your tub to adjust your window coverings? There is no better product than a motorized sheer shade that gives you simple elegance and privacy when it is down, and it almost disappears when you want to let the sunshine in. Maybe the window is too close to neighbors, no problem. You can tilt them open and get privacy during the day while still being able to see out; now, that is versatility in one shade. Slap a wall switch in for motorized control and never search for a remote again - better yet, use voice control, “Alexa, raise bathroom shade”. If sheers are not your thing, a lovely top-down, bottom-up cellular shade is a perfect choice, motorized, of course.
Balling On A Budget
If motorization is not in your budget, lovely horizontal blinds with same-side controls allow you to raise and tilt your blinds from one side instead of split rules. Many customers order wood shutters for their whole house and then frown at putting a vinyl or composite shutter in the bathroom. With today’s larger bathrooms, we can often arrange a wood shutter with no problem without sacrificing the finish of the shutter.
Don't Be Afraid of Blackout Curtains
When renovating your spa-like bathroom, a standing tub is a key to creating a peaceful escape in your own home. If you have the space, consider installing bay windows to frame a soaking tub and opt for simple curtains to let the most natural light come through. Pro tip: the longer the curtains, the more style and elegance points you earn.
Let the Window Shine
If your bathroom gets a ton of light, you may want the option to filter it out when you need to soak in a tranquil, candle-lit bath in the middle of the day. Consider thick, velvet Roman shades that can filter out the light whenever you need it.
Tiled or Marbled Surfaces Can Be Scary
Drilling into freshly laid tile (or marble) can be scary, even for seasoned veterans. Our installers are equipped and skilled to handle it for you! If you are going DIY, however, and you don’t want all the fuss, install a simple frosted or decorative window film to gain all the privacy you want without the stress.
One of the best ways to maintain your bathroom privacy is by adding frosted window film tints to your window. But if you like to preserve the view, consider getting a moisture-resistant composite window treatment.
From UV testing stained and painted components to high heat adhesive strength testing, 3 Blind Mice ensures finished window treatments perform consistently for years to come.
Most of us are only concerned with two main factors—style and functionality. But durability is a quality not to overlook as you can find a window treatment for life, not just for the moment. In turn, you’ll save lots of time, effort, and money over the product's life.
We love a crisp white bathroom, but sometimes too much white can feel sterile and uninspired. Adding a patterned curtain acts almost as wall art and works wonderfully to open up the clean white space and add a pop of color. Try adding an unassuming pattern but bold enough to add personality to the room while covering the large windows.
3 Blind Mice's composite blinds withstand the highest humidity. Not only moisture-resistant, but you can match the color palette with faux wood shutters for a whole home solution.
Don't worry about putting on a show for your neighbors. Motorization provides unparalleled convenience, especially for hard-to-reach or larger window coverings. And since there are no dangling cords, they are an ideal safety choice for homes with children or pets.
Like real hardwood blinds, blinds made of faux wood are exceptionally durable and easy to clean, thanks to their robust and rigid surface. But it doesn't just stop there; faux wood takes things a step further in the durability department by adding maximum resistance to humidity, moisture, and changing temperatures.

Faux Wood Blind
The award-winning SmartPrivacy® technology ensures extra privacy and light control: smooth operation, impact-resistant, legendary quality. Keep your space minimal and sleek by considering blinds instead of a curtain or a shade. This is a great way to cover up the windows when you need to in a way that disappears into the background.
Hybrid wood composite construction with waterproof option. Won't chip or crack over time. Why can't my bathroom look chic and well dressed you may think to yourself? Shutters are the ultimate in a traditional and clean look. They have a rustic feel, and since they are vinyl, they won't warp or crack like wood.
Advanced honeycomb technology for extra insulation and home energy efficiency. Stylish and streamlined - made for every window. Covering the window for privacy is probably top of your mind, especially if you live close to your neighbors. But if you have a tall window, consider only top-down, bottom-up shades that can be raised from the bottom, lowered from the top, or adjusted from both directions at once so light can still peer in, but your nosy neighbor can't.
Capture the spirit of modern living and celebrate a vast world of color, textures, and styles. Embrace simplicity! If you already have a pretty busy bathroom, consider a window treatment that sits in the background, simply doing its job. This simple white blind is an excellent choice for coverage that won't clash with the rest of the bathroom.
Opting for white roller shades in your bathroom doesn't have to mean you can't add a touch of texture or drama to your bathroom. Adding Roman Shades curtains have a delicate wave that adds a hint of visual texture to the space but still feels incredibly minimalist and unassuming.
Think curtains don't belong in a bathroom? A floor-grazing curtain is a great way to create an elegant bathroom that feels instantly luxurious. Long curtains also help open up your bathroom.
When the fabric vanes are tilted open, sheer fabric lets in light but maintains a level of privacy. Add a motorized lift to the shades so you can raise them with the touch of a finger. And when you want a little more light control or nighttime privacy, tilt the vanes completely closed.
Automatically open and close window coverings at the hottest or coolest times of the day and watch your energy bills drop by pairing with automation systems.

Yes, faux wood blinds are moisture-resistant and will not warp or crack, making them ideal for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
The best material for your window treatments depends on your style and the required functionality. For example, opt for sheer fabrics like linen or cotton if you want natural light to filter through your window treatments. Choose heavier fabrics like velvet or silk if you need privacy and light control. You can also choose materials like wood or faux wood for a more classic look. If you have a room like a bathroom or a kitchen with more traffic and moisture, then you will want to consider more durable window treatments that can be easily maintained and thoroughly cleaned often.
The best materials for bathroom window treatments are those that are moisture-resistant and can withstand the humid conditions of a bathroom. Vinyl, PVC, and synthetic materials are good options for bathroom window treatments as they are water-resistant and easy to clean. Natural materials like bamboo and wood can also be used, but they require more maintenance to prevent warping or mildew growth.
In small bathrooms, choosing window treatments that don't take up too much space and allow natural light to come in is important. Roman shades or cellular shades are good options for small bathrooms as they can be mounted inside the window frame and don't require a lot of space. You can also consider using valance or café curtains covering only the window's lower half.
One way to maintain privacy while still letting in natural light is to use frosted or textured glass in your bathroom window. This allows light to pass through while obscuring the view from outside. You can also use sheer or semi-sheer window treatments that allow light to filter through but still maintain some level of privacy.
Yes, you can use blinds in your bathroom, but like curtains, you need to choose a material that can withstand moisture. Faux wood or PVC blinds are good bathroom options as they are moisture-resistant and easy to clean.
Yes, you can install curtains in your bathroom, but choosing the right type of curtain material is important. Look for curtains made from synthetic materials or fabrics that are specifically designed for bathrooms, such as polyester or nylon. You should also consider installing a shower liner to help protect the curtains from moisture damage.
Choosing a window treatment that can handle the humidity and moisture levels in a bathroom is important. Some materials like natural wood or fabric may not be suitable. Look for options that are water-resistant or can be easily cleaned. Whereas options like vinyl, aluminum, and composite or faux wood are much better suited to withstand the elements.
The level of privacy you need will depend on the location of your bathroom and the amount of foot traffic around it. If you're concerned about people being able to see into your bathroom, consider window treatments that offer privacy, such as frosted glass or blinds that can be tilted.
To prevent mold and mildew from forming on your window treatments, make sure your bathroom is well-ventilated. Choose moisture-resistant materials that are easy to clean, and avoid leaving wet towels or clothing near your window treatments.
