Bathroom windows provide natural light and ventilation, but they can also compromise your privacy. Many contemporary Ohio homes have large picture windows even in the bath area.
In this post, your local window contractor, Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati shares ways you can enjoy excellent natural lighting in your bathroom while still maintaining privacy.
The simplest way to ensure the privacy of your bathroom is by installing frosted films on the windows. These films come in different patterns and they look like acid-etched or sandblasted glass. They obscure the view while still admitting a good amount of light into the room.
Tip: check with the company that manufactured or installed your windows before applying any film in case that voids the warranty in any way.
A simple, moisture resistant curtain can do the trick when it comes to adding privacy in your bathroom. Avoid silk or anything that’s not water resistant. Sheer curtains give a romantic touch in bathrooms where the tub is situated beside bay windows.
3. Textured Glass
The combination of dimpled glass bricks and clear glass is a creative way to make the most of your outdoor view without compromising your indoor privacy.
4. Roller Shades
These are great because you can lower them when you want privacy and then raise them back up after use. They can be tucked against the ceiling, rolled up from the base of the window or simply placed on areas of the windows you want to cover.
Outdoor screens provide protection, let in light and also give you a view of the outside. Laser-cut and slatted wooden screens complement contemporary bathrooms.
