Creating Privacy In The Bathroom With Art

Creating Privacy In The Bathroom With Art

Bathroom windows are often puzzling problems in a home. Yes they offer ventilation and light but they also often afford your neighbor a good view of what should be your private activities or they look out onto an alleyway or airshaft! Either way, covering them is often the first order of business in a new home.

Curtains, shades and window film are the default option; we spotted this unusual solution in the latest issue of Rue.

A large piece of art partially covers the window in this bathroom while still allowing for light, ventilation and privacy. Since moisture can sometimes be an issue in this room, select something inexpensive. Whether your windows are French style doors or double hung, try hanging the art directly from the frame so you can still open and close the window. This will also give you maximum privacy while still allowing light to enter through the bottom and top of the glass.

Of course, you can also use try this quirky fix to afford yourself privacy in other rooms as well.
