Infusing Curtains In Your Bathroom Window Sill
Curtains are the biggest feature of a bathroom window sill. They come in a wide variety of styles, colors and textures, and have many roles to fill. They need to ensure privacy while allowing natural light into the space. In some cases, curtains may need to provide privacy, so finding a curtain that is easy to open and close would be essential.

The material of your curtains also need to be susceptible to moisture and humidity to ensure that they last long and stay in good condition. Vinyl curtains are durable and able to get wet. This is ideal if bathroom is small or if your window is near a source of water.
Panel curtains work well with small windows as they are simple to install and can be easily cut to fit any size and shape. On the other hand, you may have big bathroom windows, which will require a means of covering a section of it for privacy, but also allowing the top half to remain open, allowing for sunlight to enter. Classic hanging curtains allow you to play with style, texture and patterns while still having an open and bright window.

Plants work great in addition with the right curtain. Window sills place plants in an ideal position for sunlight. When choosing a plant, you should consider its needs in terms of light and moisture and humidity. Small plants that grow long leaves or vines are great alternatives to curtains if privacy is not an issue, as they can frame the window and create a beautiful and natural feel. This is also an opportunity to make use of homemade flower pots or vases.
Who doesn’t enjoy relaxing in the bathtub under the soft texture of candlelight? Candles are the perfect addition to bathroom décor as they not only look great, but provide some atmospheric lighting. Layer candles of different shapes and sizes to create a tranquil feel. When using candles, be sure that your curtains or other flammable objects won’t get in the way.
