Can a window be put in a shower?
There is nothing stopping you from doing so, however you should at least order a window that is designed for a shower. Or even better is a glass block window. They are waterproof and they also have a small operable window available for ventilation.
I had to comment on this because that is the first time I heard that question. It is usually the opposite.
Windows in showers are notorious for being moldy and rotten and a place for water to enter behind the wall. If you are going to put one in be sure to consider it.
Make sure that the sill has a wicked angle that ensures water runs out of the sill into the tub. Cover the surround and tie into the window with a waterproofing membrane.
Yes a window could be put in a shower, but I would not recommend doing it without re tiling the shower. That is to say that I would like to seema new membrane put in and wrapped around the window opening. I would also recommend that the window be glass block, to allow light in, provide privacy, and it is more water resistant than a standard vinyl window.
Hope this helps

Yes, very much so. You just need to make sure you research this project to ensure you cover all procedures correctly and that this is done to code as you will be penetrating and altering an exterior structual wall. You will also require a permit.
I would get at least 3 or 4 reputable contractors to provide free estimates on this to ensure the pricing is within market range of your region. I wouldn't go for a contractor offering a price that is greatly lower than the average (example - $500, $750, $1200, $1000, 1250, $1150) - I would personally go for the $1200 as it's averagely priced but not the cheapest). If you go with the one that's way lower than any other the job will most likely yield poor or improper workmanship. Also going for the cheapest of the average prices ($1100) you are highly likely to have work with corners cut.
Good luck on your project. Again these are not estimates based on your specifif job just a guideline.

A window treatment can be done in the shower area. Depending on how directly the water may interact with the product, the options may change. We offer a few unique products that could work, but the 1st thing I would suggest, would be a PVC or composite shutter.
Hope this helps.
If you decide on a window I'd recommend installing moisture proof windows at shoulder height to provide privacy and minimize water hitting that area. You could go with a side-by-4ide slider etc. You might also consider using glass that has a design of some sort.
All the best,
YES, it is possible to install a window in a shower without getting any problems at all, however it has to be done correctly. The window must be fully build from PVC. Such windows are available in Home Depot. (see picture). Furthermore don't use any wood around your window !!! Tile the window sill or better, install a granite sill. The tile backer around the window MUST be watertight and properly sealed to the window frame.
You can easily achieve this by using the right materials. We highly recommend using Wedi-Board and not only around the window rather than for the whole shower.

There are no problems putting a window into a shower provided it is well thought out. You definitely don't want an underground trade here.
You want a window with absolutely no wood. Go with a vinyl slider, double hung casement or awning with vinyl extensions and vinyl trim. A sloped sill on the bottom and weather proofed all around the opening to the window. This will keep moisture from entering from inside and outside.
Yes you can, but wouldn't recommend it, specially not an opening one.
It can be done but make sure that you use a good tile installer to get it sealed correctly. Humidity does accumulate on the glass quite quickly so a good seal and slope back into the shower is essential.
