Bathroom curtains for log homes do not have to be hum drum, and you can use them to coordinate your master bedroom with your bath.
Window treatments or bathroom curtains for log homes do need to provide privacy and a feeling of comfort in the bath.
Depending on where you live, and how much privacy you have, you may want to use cafe or tier curtains and a valence, sheers or just a cute valence to brighten your bath.
When shopping for bathroom window treatments, keep in mind that sometimes matching tiers are available, even if the photo only shows a valence.
How to Choose Bathroom Window Treatments
Bathroom window treatments can be simply decorative and fun, or very practical and maintenance-free.
In addition, window treatments for the bath need to be able to handle extremes of temperature and moisture.
