Are you after some more UV rays, but nervous about the privacy factor? Not only can draperies be a fun and creative option, you can cut down on potential peepers entirely by going the skylight route, an especially appealing option for bathrooms. Bathrooms are the places you need the most privacy so it makes sense that these tend to be spaces that end up windowless more often than others. The skylight is a great example of a way you can get the best of both worlds for your bathroom design.

If you're worried about how adding windows would fit into a more urban lifestyle, this is where looking into different options for window treatments will come in handy. Drapes and shades offer an incredibly flexible way to chose how much light you allow in, and how much, or little, the neighbors will be able to check out your digs.
