    That window is pretty high. People wouldn't see much. If you had a frosted but openable window you could have both a view with window open and privacy when window is closed.

    I open our window, shower above bath, whilst showering. It's about shoulder high. I've only had to close it quickly once.

    We have the exact same issue! I have installed dual blinds with a sheer that allows us to see out during the day and a block out that I can use at night.

    without any obvious divisions it may be an awning window, hinged from the top and swinging out and looks like it's about 500mm tall and 1500mm wide and installed so the the top of the window is about 2m off the floor and the bottom about 1.5m so an average adult can look out while still retaining privacy from the neck down

    Hi. We are installing one very similar to this. Ours is a custom build. Hope that helps!

5. A window in the shower This is a great feature if done properly. Some things to consider include: choose a frosted-glass panel for privacy and preferably one that opens for fresh air. Next, ensure that there are stone jambs along the entire installation so that this area is watertight. Also, ensure that the sill gets sloped down and away for proper drainage. Lastly, I always specify a tilt-and-turn window in a shower, because the screen is located on the outside of the window; the handles are plastic, so they won’t rust; and the window provides full privacy even when tilted open.

Horizontal window--I don't like these as much as vertical.
