Bathroom window glass

I don't know if this exists, but I'm looking for glass that you can see out of but can't see into.

My shower sits right between a balcony and a deck and has three small windows. Were it not for family members or guests hanging out on either the balcony or the deck, I wouldn't care about privacy. But these are congregating spots, and if someone is, for example, barbecuing on the deck, there is a clear view into the shower.

I've seen beautiful glass that will provide privacy. But you can't see out of it. Most of the time, I don't need privacy in that shower, like in the mornings when everybody's busy getting ready to go and no one has time to hang out on the patio or balcony, or when the kids aren't home. I'd rather be able to see out the windows at the plants and flowers than to have my view obscured by privacy glass.

It seems like there should be something. Does anyone know?

One way mirror or the other choice is electric switchable privacy glass. That is about it as far as I know.

There are some electronic glazing options out that can be switched on and off.

Be prepared...they are not cheap.

You will also need to rip out the window you have currently. Last I checked, they were not available in a retrofit option.

You will note that for the glass to work, the background or in your case the bathroom will have to be darkened. The electronic glazing is really not feasible in your case.
