What can you tell me about windows in showers?

I want positive and negative information before I build.


Answer by  technogeek (6640)

This depends on whether you intend to cover the windows with curtains or shades. Just like with any other window, if there is too much heat inside the room, the window will fog up. Also, if there is light inside the room, with no shade, and dark outside, outsiders can see in but insiders cannot see out.

A window in a shower is sometimes a good idea to assist with ventilation. Although privacy is an issue that could cause problems. Another idea is to consider the mold buildup that will occur on window. These are few ideas to consider.

Windows are useful in a shower, ensuring that you have privacy glass installed. Allow natural light in, and allow moisture to escape when open.

Typical is approximately 18" tall and installed about 72" off of the ground, that way nobody can see in. Consider obscure glass for privacy and awning windows for ventilation.

Not a good ideal, you will never be able to keep it sealed, When you put a window in a shower there is no positive feed back


Answer by  whobesidesme (406)

I have a window in my shower and hate it. The light is nice, but it accumulates mold in tough to clean areas and it creeps me out showering when it's dark outside. I'd recommend against it.

Windows can obviously be a privacy concern but in addition to allowing light in, they can also be used for ventilation.
