Need Help with Master Bath Window Treatments!

September 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am in the ending stages of building a home and am confused about what to do the with my master bath windows. They are two large windows over the tub (only one in the photo but the other is exactly the same, just adjacent on the other wall above tub) that face the neighbors poo and golf course. They are the only windows in the room, so I would like to figure out a way to create privacy while still allowing in lots of light and not totally blocking out the view. Any advice would be welcomed!!!

Thank you!

IDK what your decorating style is, but the first thing that came to mind was plantation shutters that u can tilt so you can see out/no one can see in....
and /or something like this pic...but these are quite ornate.

Definitely would recommend plantation shutters. You can have "split-tilt" control which allows you to keep the bottom half closed while tilting open the top half allowing light to come in.

The only issue is that I've had plantation shutters in the past and I have always felt they were super heavy looking/darkened a space. Are there any other shutter "like" options?

one way to get more light to come in with shutters is to go to a larger louver (slat) size. The larger the louver, the further apart they are when opened.

Shutters are beautiful and would be fabulous. Before doing anything go over to the golf course or your neighbor's yard and see how much actual exposure you have. Have someone stand in the tub and wave their arms. I know you want to feel secure that you're not "on display" to the neighborhood. Consider this--at night when it's dark outside and your lights are on inside others can easily see in. It's opposite in the day.
