In yesterday’s post, I showed a video of our “new” claw foot tub.
Our claw foot tub is going to sit directly in front of our window, and I love it there!
I received a comment on that post that made me smile…and think.
Here it is:
Love the idea but I have not ever figured out why have a tub by a window is it going to stay there? So many new homes have beautiful tubs next to a window facing the neighbors back yards etc and I am just not understanding the calm private moments a warm bath suggests when one has a window near by.
What am I missing?
Good Question, Sharon!
I love when my readers get me to thinkin’!
I haven’t really thought about creating privacy by covering the window in our bathroom because of the size of our lot. We have 5 1/2 acres, and about 3 of those acres are in our front yard. So this is what you see out our bathroom window…
Not a neighbor in sight!
So I am not really worried too much about privacy, but I still would like the option of creating some privacy, especially at night.
I searched around last night trying to find some pictures of different ways to create bathroom privacy, mainly for a bath tub in front of a window! :)
The three ways I like best to cover a window is with plantation shutters, fabric, or stained glass.
I love the charm of stained glass windows in the bathroom. They add beauty and privacy at the same time. In the first picture below, you can see straight into the neighbor’s upstairs window. In the second picture, after the stain glass was added, there is now complete privacy.

One of my favorite looks for a window is the plantation shutters. It definitely goes with the farmhouse look that I am after.
I’m not crazy about the valance below, but I love the bottom curtain rod with the lightweight cream fabric. It is important to use lightweight fabric because of all the moisture that can be found in a bathroom.
The windows below are gorgeous, but definitely do not provide privacy. With blinds and curtains, I think that solves the problem, don’t you?
I am really loving the look of drapes in a bathroom. It really adds a lot of elegance! Do you think drapes would look good in my bathroom?
This is a beautiful look as well! I like how they added artwork to the window for privacy. That’s a thought!
So there is some inspiration! Which type of window covering do you like best?
Which do you think would look best in my master bath?
As a side note, I am guest posting at Positively Splendid today!
