Bathroom windows require a little more thought and planning than windows in other rooms in your home.

While you want as much natural light as possible, you also want to ensure privacy.  This means you’ll want to consider the view of each bathroom from outside and from all angles, especially from angles where other people may be such as neighbors, passers-by all while taking advantage of letting in the most amount of light.

Options for privatizing windows:

If you have close neighbors, you can always

  • use blinds,
  • install curtains,
  • use sanded glass/stained glass which brings in light but people can’t see the details, and/or
  • place the window high up in the room.

I’m not big on sanded glass because it also means you can’t really see outside.

Our gallery of master bedrooms with windows below include all of the above options as well as many types of window design ideas for your bathroom.

In my view, if you will need to close up your bathroom window, blinds are the best option because they look good and are very easy to open and close and you can still enjoy the view.

Bathroom window placement

Often you don’t have a lot of window placement options because it’s rare to place a window in a shower or above bathroom sinks or next to a toilet.  This leaves very little wall space for a window.

That said, our gallery below does include examples of windows next to a bathtub and even in a shower.  If you go with a window in the shower or next to a tub you definitely want to ensure there’s sufficient privacy.

Other bathroom window design considerations:

  • Frame color
  • Window size
  • Number of frames
  • Frame material
  • Number of panes
  • Does it open/close and if so, is it sliding or swinging?
  • Shape: Bay or flat?
  • Glass type: Regular, brushed, block glass?

If you’re planning a bathroom renovation or designing a bathroom, check out the huge variety of master bathroom window ideas below.

1. Glass Block Windows

Glass block windows were popular in the 1980’s.  While I’m not a big fan, they are a viable bathroom option because they offer light while protecting privacy.

2. Large Window with Roll-Down Blinds (Next to a Tub)

Any bathroom window can be made private with any type of blind. This bathroom uses a roll-down blind which is not quite as convenient as regular blinds.
