Windows in the Bathroom, Shower Window

In our last house, we had a window in our shower.  It was so beautiful, but we had a system for keeping water out of the window: 3M hooks and a small shower curtain.  Protecting the window became really important after we had to have the window repaired.  The seal was failing, and inside the window pains was water from the shower.  It looked sort-of like this, only with an inch of water at the bottom (inside the glass):

 It makes me laugh now, because I just had no idea that the seal could fail, and was so surprised that the previous owners of that house hadn't been protecting the window.  It was an inexpensive fix, so lesson learned :)

With a window in the shower or tub, the beauty of the light is worth-while!  I would hesitate to have anyone brick over a window in the shower--especially if it is the ONLY window in the bathroom.  There are so many ways to protect that window:

Cover up a window that has been oddly placed inside your shower or tub area. Great idea! Frosted glass window.

Dana did a great job updating her bathroom, and her engineering husband (yeah for those engineers!) made sure that window will be okay:

Love that light in the bathroom!  Shower windows and windows in the bathroom are great :)

  1. My mom recently remodeled our family room. She added a new mantle and shelving around our television. It looks really good and a lot better than it did before. I think it inspired her to redo more things in our home because now she is determined to remodel our kitchen and bathrooms. I really like the way these bathrooms turned out and will have to show my mom these pictures and see what she thinks about them. I'm sure she will love them because it is totally her style. http://www.lincolncabinet.com/interior_design___remodeling.html
