Bathroom window help: airflow with privacy?
June 8, 2011 5:12 AM Subscribe
I'd like to keep my bathroom window open and air moving through, but our bathroom window is directly opposite the neighbor's balcony. So I need some sort of screen or grate or fabric or something that is open enough to let air through, but opaque enough to hide our bathroom activity. Do I use fabric, metal, what? And where do I find it?

There must be a simple solution to this I'm just not seeing. I've tried a few searches for window grates, but that typically pulls up security bars that won't hide anything from the neighbors. Curtains don't work because they block airflow. (Is there a special lets-air-through type of fabric?) I really dislike plain window blinds, and it seems like having them open enough to let air through again reveals a little too much. And finally, we're renters, so can't install too permanent of a solution, and would prefer to spend under $100. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
