Skylight windows for bathroom
If you’d love to be one with the nature while taking a bath, a skylight window right above your shower is exactly what you need. There might be no other window that looks more luxurious than this one.
This window of course, involves cutting into your ceiling and roof – and you are right if you guessed that this type of luxury isn’t cheap.
If you need something more pocket-friendly, then you can go for a tubular skylight or, as it’s also known, a solar tube which reflects and diffuses sunlight throughout a room.
Also known as plantation shutters or shutter-style blinds, shutter windows are a great option for bathroom windows for various reasons.
The great thing about these windows is that they can adapt to your privacy requirements easily. They also add an elegant focal point to your room.
With simple flick, you can enjoy the daylight or the night sky and with another flick, you can conceal your room and enjoy the privacy.
The cost of these windows largely depends on how big your room is.
Textured glass windows
If you need both sunlight and privacy, your bathroom window does not need to be on the ceiling. Instead, bathroom window with a glass that has a heavy texture or high opacity can obscure the view for privacy and offer enough lighting. Textured glass is an ideal choice for bathroom windows in smaller rooms. But make note that this kind of bathroom windows can be a bit pricey.
Alternatively, you can use privacy window film, which is a temporary type of contact paper treated with a frosted design and texture. This costs much less and can be an alternative solution.

You can buy individual glass blocks to fit your windows. There’s also the option of purchasing a pre-formed glass block window to fit in most standard-sized windows.
Transom bathroom windows are often used to accent windows that are placed below a larger window, below a door, above a window, or above a door. However, if privacy is a primary concern for you, then you can use them as standalone windows. These windows are also quite affordable than other options.
Just make sure to position the window high enough that privacy isn’t compromised for a view of the outdoors.
Similar to a transom window, a hopper window is usually set high on the wall, but it opens downward to provide ventilation when need it is required. So, if you are having too much moisture and humidity after a hot shower, you can open these easily to offer natural ventilation.
