How to Give Your Bathroom a Spring Refresh

When we think of spring, we think of rejuvenation, daylight hours lengthening, soft colors breaking through white landscapes, and new life growing. There’s a warming feeling, a lightness to the season that we love to bring into bathroom style to revive and refresh the space. Join our team at Exciting Windows as we look this month at how new bathroom window coverings can bring springtime style (including light, color, and natural elements) into your home’s restrooms.

Bring Light in with New Bathroom Window Shades

For a springtime refresh in any room, the first step is to bring in natural light - the more light, the better! Natural sunlight not only has a warming and welcoming effect on the ambiance of a room, but it also affects us personally, improving our mood and boosting productivity. Plus, natural sunlight also has an enlarging effect on interior spaces, making them feel more open and airy. Try adding mirrors to your bathrooms or enlarging the existing mirrors for reflective elements that will help carry sunlight throughout the room.

When it comes to light-loving shades for the bathroom, explore the different options for sheer shades from Hunter Douglas. Shades like Silhouette® Sheer Shades or Luminette® Sheer Panels let in abundant natural light to reinvigorate interior spaces and also have protective qualities. Modern sheer textiles have been engineered to allow light but obscure the sightline, ensuring the resident’s privacy is protected, a functionally necessary feature for bathroom window coverings.

In Alaska, light control is also necessary as daylight hours continue growing. Light-blocking blinds can balance openness and protection in the bathroom with their slatted designs and tilting vanes. Opt for larger vanes for more sunlight and openness in your bathroom or smaller vanes for more privacy and light control.

Fresh Colors from Bathroom Window Coverings

Springtime colors traditionally lean towards pastels early in the season, with the hues becoming bolder as summer grows closer. For the 2024 bathroom revamps, we love the use of nature-inspired colors, from new grass green to off-the-vine plumb. Hunter Douglas Roman shades have a fabric library that features textiles in a wide range of colors and weaves, so homeowners can find the perfect option for their bathroom window coverings.

Include Natural Elements with Bathroom Window Coverings

With new life brewing outside, we love to play homage inside with the use of natural elements. For bathroom window coverings, that could mean wood blinds or shutters that use genuine hardwood with a natural finish, like Hunter Douglas Parkland® Wood Blinds or Heritance® Wood Shutters. In addition to their natural aesthetic, these hard treatments also offer a range of light control, from bright light in the bathroom to impenetrable protection against sunlight.

Using natural elements in bathroom window coverings could also mean woven wood shades that use organic elements like bamboo, wood, reeds, and grasses in their woven textiles. These treatments share the natural inspiration of wood shutters and blinds but with a softer aesthetic and a unique lighting pattern as natural sunlight passes through the raw weave when the shade is drawn.
