Window treatment yes or no

Our master to look out to a private backyard. Is it ok to leave the window without a treatment? Thanks.

I would either leave with nothing or a simple white wood blind.

I would put some sort of window treatment on there ... even if it were just blinds.

White plantation shutters.

Yes, it is fine to leave it undressed. However, if you ever have yard workers or someone working in the yard and this was the only bathroom opportunity you can see the challenge. Lovely garden and I can see you want to keep the view from the shower, the natural light flowing in, etc. I suggest you obtain frost film, and frost only the lower half of the large element - you will still have clear glass on the top half and all the small narrow elements, but if you were naked you wouldn't feel that someone walking past would be revealing. Or, get the shades that function top down, so you can leave the top down halfway most of the time.

leaving the window as is creates such a beautiful and peaceful scene. if you are concerned about privacy we suggest white plantations or simple blinds as well.

I suggest blinds or a shade that you can retract by pulling on a string so it rolls up horizontally to the top of the window. When you want the full window you can have the covering rolled all the way up, but can still roll it down when you need privacy.

It's the perfect place to add some pattern and color - a fabric roman shade mounted up near the ceiling.

White PalmBeach shutters would look great in your bathroom, and would allow you to keep your natural light while maintaining privacy and minimizing energy loss. These shutters are ideal because they are resistant to moisture and heat. Another great option would be to use sheer shades, which would add a soft touch to the room and keep the beautiful scenery. As PH Interiors suggested, roman blinds could add color or pattern to your bathroom, or you could choose a roman style woven wood blind to emphasize the natural colors in your bathroom. You can check out our bathroom projects for additional ideas. Good luck - you have a gorgeous bathroom!

As others have mentioned, blinds, shutters, or a roman shade would all look great. Another option would be a solar roller shade. You can get them in fabrics that look like linen or grass-cloth. They let in lots of light, but give you some privacy. They vary in the amount of opacity. The more open the weave, the more light you'll get. While it's hard for a picture to capture the texture of the fabric, here's a photo of solar roller shades:

I would just use a textured ( patterned) clear glass ... Let's the light in but can't see in. Sorry one picture not the best :)

SOLARIS Lots of decorative options that will still allow light in while giving privacy. In many options like this we install an opaque film on the bottom half of the glass for privacy.
