The positioning of your bathroom furniture is an important decision. Placing your bath in front of a clear window sounds like a crazy idea – unless you’re fortunate enough have a non-overlooked bathroom window, with picturesque views beyond. But there is something ultimately romantic about the idea of lazing in the bath, gazing out at a city skyline or tranquil beach.
For most of us though, it would be impractical to have a bath next to the window. Unless you have a body beautiful, you probably want some privacy when you are bathing.
If this is the only place your tub will fit, try these solutions for some added privacy:
- Frosted, tinted or patterned glass: change the panes of glass so no-one can see in. But bear in mind that you also can’t see out!
- Cover the glass in opaque film: these are an increasingly popular DIY option (just cut to size and peel off the backing).
- Use a fold out screen to obscure the view when you are actually using the bath
- Indulge in frosted Perspex shutters for a slick modern look. These can be shut to keep your modesty intact, and opened when the bath isn’t in use.
- Layers of flimsy sheer materials and a lightweight blind would keep you out of view and add to the romanticism.
