There is no doubt that privacy is important for your bathroom. However, if your space features stunning views of your property or fabulous natural light you should highlight that. There are creative ways for adding privacy to your bathroom windows, without sacrificing these appealing attributes. Many of these projects are perfect for a weekend DIY project, or rather, built right into the construction of your bathroom remodel.
Wooden Plantation Blinds or Shutters
Popular due to their versatility, attractiveness, and user-friendly design. Plantation blinds and shutters offer wide slats, so that when open offer a great view, plus allow for plenty of natural light.
An inexpensive method for obscuring the view of your window without completely blocking light. These films apply quickly yet remove easily. In addition, they add a design element without hanging curtains.
Consider glass block as a sophisticated way of adding privacy while allowing filtered light to enter your bathroom.
Strategic Window Placement
Remodeling your bathroom? Why not consider moving the windows? Placing them higher on your walls allows plenty of light to enter. However, will not allow for anyone to see into your bathroom.
Hang cafe curtains at the half way point of your windows. Essentially obstructing any external view from the shoulders up. Because they are hung on the bottom, they maintain privacy and consequently still allow a great view.
Translucent Frosted or Obscure Glass
If you are ordering new windows for your bathroom remodel, why not consider obscure frosted glass? If you already have newer windows, contact your contractor to see if the glass is replaceable. You may be surprised to find there is a local glass company or window manufacturer in your area.
Bamboo shades bring a natural element into your bathroom. Most of all, they are inexpensive, easy to install and operate.
While at the higher end of the cost spectrum, custom windows are an artistic option for privacy. Furthermore, if made of stained glass create a beautiful focal point and design centerpiece for your bathroom.
