Pros And Cons

First of all, a window in the shower is a great idea to flood the space with natural light and enjoy the views. By opening the window you can ventilate the space but of course keep privacy in mind, the space should be private enough. Go for potted greenery or even a wall covered with climbing plants if you have neighbors, if you don’t have them, no problem. Now let’s take a look at the windows you may try.

Privacy Keeping Options

If you want to keep privacy, there are some options you may try. First of all, it can be a small window strategically placed very high or on the side to enjoy the views when you want to just keep it all to the natural light flooding the space. Another idea is frosted glass that can cover the lower part of the window or the window completely to keep the privacy. You may also make a frosted glass cover for the window to open it when possible.
