There are so many choices when it comes to window treatments. Use this list of popular bedroom window blind and treatment options to help you better decide what you want and need when it comes to your bedroom.
- Curtains – Probably the most common bedroom window treatment, curtains come in a wide range of colors, styles, and even shapes. You can easily add a pop of color, taste of pattern or shot of style to your bedroom with the right curtain. Curtains are generally made of lighter fabric than drapes, but they are oftentimes more affordable, too.

They come in almost limitless materials and colors and go with tons of different decorating styles.

- Blinds – Blinds are oftentimes the simplest way to go for a bedroom window treatment. Streamlined, effective and affordable, blinds add privacy and block out sunlight. You can choose blinds from a wide array of materials like vinyl, metal or wood to better match your décor and budget needs.
