Small But Stylish
If your bathroom doesn’t have large windows, getting huge curtains simply won’t work.
This is where half-window options, such as this one, really come in handy. They provide just enough privacy while also making your small window appear larger. Not to mention that these neat café curtains provide plenty of light, allowing your bathroom design to shine no matter the time of day.
We recommend going for light-colored ones (soft patterns are okay, too) to make your bathroom look sleek and radiant.
Light, White, and Breezy
Sometimes a bathroom curtain is more than just a tool to stop prying eyes. It’s a legitimate decor piece.
For instance, look at these beautiful white bathroom curtains. The light, airy material is both graceful and elegant and really brings the whole room together — perfectly complementing the stylish chandelier and oval bathtub.
Note that white window curtains look best in neutral-colored bathrooms but can work just as well in colorful bathrooms that need that special something, something to soften the look.
Distinctly Modern Window Blinds
If you want to create a modern vibe for your bathroom, these unique window blinds will give you the inspiration you need.
Namely, the unusual frame on these modern bathroom curtains acts as a genuine statement piece. Moreover, the black color of the frame does an excellent job of contrasting the slick, bright bathtub and white window blinds.
Apart from the minimalistic look, the blinds also provide a fair share of privacy when fully closed, adding both practicality and style into the mix.
Lush and Luxurious
To really get that awe effect, look no further than these luxuriously gorgeous drapes. This beautiful decor piece fits well with the high-end aesthetics of the room and offers some extra bits of privacy — just what your royal highness needs.
Couple that with a golden mirror and the largest tub money can buy, and you’ll feel like a true rockstar! Especially so if you have a luxuriously dark bathroom and want to double down on that with sophisticated curtains for your bathroom window.
Just remember to stick to darker shades to bring out the lushness of your new drapes.

Of all the “bare necessities,” we chose this particular floral pattern for our bathroom window coverings. Simply because we like the exotic vibe, and it goes well with a tropically themed wallpaper; just a little something to break the monotony!

Even if you’re not a huge fan of the game, patterned curtains are an excellent way of shaking things up. For example, we went with this checkered pattern since it adds some much-needed flair and can even act as a unique statement piece.
Don’t be afraid to try some unusual patterns for your bathroom window curtains. The same goes for bold colors, too. Most of the time, people just stick with the same-old, same-old snow-white colored curtains to match their boringly bright bathroom; a rookie mistake!
Brighten your day with some lovely floral drapes. You can never go wrong with these!
Not only will they make your bathroom look more “natural,” but they’ll also make it more lively, especially if you have plain white walls with zero details. Match them with a few interesting air plants, and you got yourself a neat little indoor garden; how cool is that?
Now, of all the different types you can get, we found pastel flowers work best with white curtains; but that’s just one possible combination. In fact, floral curtains are true chameleons and can be used both for modern and farmhouse bathroom curtains.
This timeless classic will never go out of fashion! If anything, it’ll make your home look like a five-star hotel.
Best suited for homes with older (preferably vintage) furniture, this design makes the most out of your ancient gear. Better yet, it creates a genuine old-school vibe.
One of the more creative bathroom window curtain ideas on our list for sure, this style requires a bit of work on your part, but it’s well worth it. For instance, adding some matching wallpaper patterns or a vintage tub will make a world of difference.
Still, we recommend keeping it simple and not too over the top. Also, avoid making it too dark and use lighter shades instead to keep the space flowing.
For those of you who value privacy above all else, these ones are for you!
Namely, linen blinds offer 100% privacy protection, no matter the shade of fabric you pick. Not only that but they also make excellent bathroom curtains for small windows as they can fit almost any size.
If you’re unsure which color to pick, you can’t go wrong with neutral tones like grey and beige. Moreover, these blinds go well with modern bathrooms since they’re easily adjustable and have that chic feel to them.
Long Stylish Drapes
If you thought long, stylish drapes were meant solely for your bedroom, think again!
These elegant colossi are perfect for bathrooms with large windows, as is the case with most open plan houses. Their silky, modern design provides ample protection from pesky voyeurs and would-be paparazzi without sacrificing any of its charms.
And like any good bathroom window curtain, they keep the empty pockets of space stylish full length — from ceiling to floor.
Given that they’re pretty large and will cover an entire section of the wall, you shouldn’t experiment too much with color and style. Opt for a more minimalist design and use neutral and light colors instead.
Lastly, don’t be stingy! Otherwise, the whole room will look cheap since the drapes will be on full display most of the time; there’s no hiding them.
If you want to take your bathing experience to the next level without catching the attention of any uninvited guests, pick one of these fabulous recommendations we suggested above. They’re not only convenient but incredibly stylish, as well; bubble baths will just never be the same again!
