If your bathroom has opaque or frosted glass, you may not need blinds, shades or shutters for privacy reasons, however – they can still serve an important energy efficiency purpose.
Bathroom windows are no different from other windows in your home in that you can lose up to 50% of your home's heat through them. Duette® Shades from Luxaflex® provide a particularly good thermal barrier thanks to their unique honeycomb design. They were created to (stylishly) keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer, and their special fabrics are resistant to moisture in the air too.
Also, remember that there are different levels of privacy glass. Just because it’s slightly blurred – doesn’t mean your neighbours can’t see you clambering in and out of the bath (albeit slightly fuzzily).
To create a haven of calm and light a few candles in your spa-style bathroom before bed, you may want to block the glare of outdoor streetlights with blackout blinds or shutters.
