Over the past couple of centuries, the bathroom has gradually advanced way beyond its humble functional roots at the beginning of time. Bathrooms, which were once practical, functional and intimate spaces, have now grown in sophistication, becoming stylish, spa-inspired sanctuaries used not only for getting clean but also for self-expression and relaxation. A beautiful and well-placed window can very easily enhance not just the function but also the ambiance of a bathroom.
Creating a window ‘space in your bathroom that honors the intimacy of your space, by cloaking it in privacy, whilst also allowing soul-nourishing natural light to enter into the room. It doesn’t have to be a boring window though, so here are some fabulous ideas to dress up your bathroom windows.
The obvious choice for concealment in a bathroom with a large window is definitely frosted glass. However, to minimize exposure whilst still maximizing that natural light connection to the outdoors, is also vital. Attempt leaving the upper panes clear, and frosting only the lower half or third of the window. Be sure that you confirm this early on in the design process, stand next to the window and also in other areas of the room to make sure that the frosted part of the window will cover everything it needs that needs to be covered.
Best known for its appearance in churches, stained glass, is a beautifully unexpected choice for your bathroom windows. It will obscure the bathroom’s occupants while allowing in a colorfully subtle and filtered light, which will add beauty inside the space and on the outside. A stained glass window would be best used in a sunny bathroom, which will glow like a gallery of masterpieces against a neutral backdrop.
Installing skylights into your bathroom is a fantastic way to bring in some brightness to your bathroom, and also connect you with the outdoors whilst also ensuring the maximum amount of privacy in the room. Consider placing the window in the ceiling above the shower, this will create a lustrous illusion of showering outside, especially if you have your shower fitted with a rain shower head. If you have extremely bright summers and think that you might need less light, you could always have your skylight fitted with a motorized window shade.
Window shades are an easy and highly customizable option for bathroom windows that can offer supreme versatility, by choosing from a range of opacities, fabrics, and configurations. You can have shades custom made to suit your bathroom’s décor and style, and they will look gorgeous drawn up or down.
