bathroom window opens to another room...


I'm in the process of enclosing an entryway/mudroom area, and in the process, a bathroom window that now opens to the outside, will soon open to this new room. Is that too weird? I'm going to remodel the bathroom next, so it would be easy enough to remove the window and I'm just wondering whether people think it's a good idea to remove it (or leave it alone).

ya, that's kinda weird.

Sometimes weird is good, but usually weird is bad as it makes the addition seem like an after thought.

I'd lean toward closing it off. do you have a pic?

Exterior windows that end up inside shout there was an addition done - my goal with an addition is to make it look and feel like it's alwas been there as much as possible. I would close it in.

I added a sunroom & actually added window between the sunroom &the now partially enclosed room for more ventilation & light
Prior it had 2 windows, but in the plans the sunroom wall was going down the side of 1 window

A window or fan is required in the bathroom

The bathroom has a fan (and a window, at least for now) and it'll have an even more powerful fan after I remodel it (I'm into overkill...). I think for a sunroom it seems more reasonable to have windows, but for the bathroom, I'd have to agree with the others who say that it'd make the change more obvious.

Btw, next summer I'm planning to do a sunroom. Not to change the topic here, but I'd be really interested to hear about your experience. Have you previously posted anything? Thanks.
