1. Place Windows Wisely
People like privacy in the bathroom. Essentially, you want to avoid putting a window in a location that can potentially provide a view of the shower or the toilet or take extra care to obscure the view. You also need the window in a place where people can access it in case they want to open or close it.
2. Obscure the View to the Inside
Select an obscure glass style to put inside the window and obscure the view without blocking the light. Options such as traditional obscure glass, satin etch glass, gluechip glass, and more offer additional privacy while increasing the decorative appeal of the window. Alternatively (or in addition), curtains can help obscure the view as well. Curtains offer great decorating opportunities, but what’s more important is that they offer privacy and provide an extra layer of protection.
3. Utilize Both Windows and an Exhaust
You may run into cold winter mornings where you don’t want to open the window. It’s always good to have a backup plan that doesn’t run up your heating bill! For the sake of comfort and energy efficiency, you can also incorporate an exhaust fan in your new bathroom so that you have multiple ventilation options.
