Depending on the size and style of your bathroom window there are many variables. In previous times many bathroom windows where quite small and frosted for total privacy. Some were wired glass with a bubbled appearance or frosted and etched with a marine feature. From a distance nothing could be seen and even close up if someone were to peek in only a vague shape could be seen. Polyester curtains that sometimes matched the shower curtain were also popular. Today, when building or renovating, bathroom windows are being made much larger to allow for natural light and warmth with many boasting large windows from which to gaze while relaxing in a spa.
