What glass to choose for the bathroom window

A window in the bathroom is a great advantage. It lets in natural light during the day and also effectively helps to vent moisture. In addition, plenty of natural light in the bathroom has a good effect on psychological well-being. But what if the positioning of the bathroom window opens up your privacy to neighbours or passers-by? This problem can also be easily solved by choosing the right glass.

 

Sand foil or milk glass

 

A simple solution is so-called milk glass. This is a self-adhesive sand film that you just stick on the window. This solution is one of the quickest and least expensive, but it does come with a few drawbacks. The biggest one is the durability of the film itself and the fact that it peels off the window after a relatively short period of time.

 

Frosted glasses

A better alternative for a bathroom window is frosted glass. It is produced using a sandblasting technique that produces a frosted effect or the modern acid etching technique. Various patterns and stencils are also often used to freshen up the overall look of the glass. With many manufacturers, you can even arrange custom designs to match your bathroom décor. The downside of this type is that it leaves stains on it and gets dirty quickly. The advantage, on the other hand, is the soft velvety look and scratch resistance. Since the technique of producing frosted glass is quite demanding, you have to take into account a higher price in this case as well.

Stained glass

The various modern techniques of glass processing are truly remarkable, but stained glass has maintained its primacy for centuries. Stained glass not only protects you from unwanted views from the outside. It's also the ideal element with which to freshen up your bathroom interior. What's more, it will provide protection from UV rays. As stained glass windows are usually made to measure, you will also have an original piece at home that you won't find elsewhere. You can choose from a variety of different modern or vintage designs that will keep you happy for many years thanks to the high durability of the materials.

Blinds or roller blinds

If you're worried about being able to see into your bathroom despite the glass treatment, reach for another solution. You can have external blinds or shutters fitted to your bathroom window. You can also choose interior blinds or buy simple fabric curtains for the window. The advantage of these solutions is that they can be washed in the washing machine.
