How to Choose the Right White Bathroom Curtains
The color and style of curtain you choose for a window will vary significantly based on where the window is located in a room, or which room it is in. For example, if you’re looking to elevate your bathroom décor with bright tiles, or like a crisp clean feel, many homeowners opt for a classic white to keep the design scheme simple and clean.
However, many variations on the classic white curtain might better suit some spaces over others. So before you choose the perfect white bathroom curtains, it’s important to take a few things into account. See below to find out how to get the perfect white curtain for your bathroom.

Consider the Privacy Factor
For obvious reasons, bathrooms are some of the most private rooms in your home. Many homes are built with the privacy factor in mind so that any windows in the bathroom don’t typically connect openly with other rooms or the outside. However, not all homes are constructed with as much thought, and you might have an opening between your bathroom and your yard or hallway.
Blackout-Style for High Privacy
If you need to block a window with curtains due to a privacy issue, you may want to opt for blackout-style white bathroom curtains such as our ‘Shwet’ White Blackout Curtains. Despite the descriptor “blackout,” these curtains are a delicate shade of ivory, keeping your bathroom looking light and airy while effectively blocking a window view from potential passersby.
Linen, Cotton, and Silk for Low Privacy
If maintaining privacy isn’t an issue, you could basically take your pick between any of the common bathroom curtain fabrics, including linen, cotton, and silk. These curtains will provide a classy touch while also letting in as much natural light as possible due to their slightly sheer nature (linen is the sheerest of the three).
Match Your Curtains to Your Décor
Though white tends to go with most décor styles, there are still ways to change things up with your curtains so that they become a fun centerpiece in the room rather than just an afterthought. This could include choosing white curtains with a pop of color in their pattern as a way to draw the eye and spice up your interior design.
There’s no better way to liven up your white bathroom décor than with our ‘Basma’ Floral Embroidery Curtains. The background on these white bathroom curtains will allow it to fit almost any interior design, while the colorful blooms and intricate leaves and vines will add an artistic flair to an otherwise plain bathroom.
If you like the idea of a pattern but want to keep all-white décor, another great option is our ‘White Pepper’ Custom Cotton Window Curtains. You’ll love the extremely subtle stitching pattern on these soft cotton curtains, as well as their bright, clean look.
Make Sure Your Curtains Won’t Be Damaged by Water
When it comes to bathroom curtains, your shower curtain is the fabric that will get the most water. Depending on the placement of your bathroom window, you may not have to worry about much water interaction. However, even if your bathroom window curtains aren’t near the shower, they’ll likely retain some moisture during showers.
The lighter the fabric, the easier it will dry on its own after exposure to water splashing or moisture in the air. That’s why we tend to recommend sheer fabrics like linen or even polyester on white bathroom curtains. Plus, these fabrics tend to let in the most natural light, which will make your bathroom feel much brighter and more spacious no matter its size.
