To keep the bathroom warmer for one thing in my opinion
I suppose people feel more secure if there's less likelihood of anyone seeing in.

My bathroom window is quite big actually, but it has frosted glass.
I think because people would feel an issue, with a bigger or big window.
Remember the bigger the window, the more thought has to go into keeping out prying eyes.
It is not a room where you can just hang up curtains.
Steam and heat and water vapour all take a toll on certain window dressing....
Privacy has always got to be a number 1, with Bathrooms.
We have big bathroom windows, but I expect they are usually small for privacy's sake. Also, it could be to do with when they were built. As glass was particularly expensive in the past, I suppose it was more economical to use small windows for a less significant room.
Would you believe privacy?
yes I would believe windows in bathrooms are small to ensure privacy. It is, I suppose, hard to believe that in this day and age that people seek privacy in areas like bathrooms and toilets but….it is a fact. Lots of people do. And of course bathing and toiling are very natural habits but it doesn't mean that people want an audience…sort of just like breast feeding, very natural but people still like to carry out those chores PRIVATELY.

Hi Fran.....yes, we humans, & I think especially females, prefer much privacy going about our ablutions, at ALL times.

When I was 13, I holidayed at my cousin's house, in a very natural bush suburb. She had a one-way window in the bathroom, floor to ceiling. I asked her to stand there, in full view of window (she was clothed at the time!), whilst I went outside, & checked I couldn't see her! Got her to do same at night. Nope, couldn't see her, day or night, so now I felt ok to use bathroom!

I guess so people cannot look in.

Also if they are not clear glass, small and high, you do not need to have a curtain/blinds on them to stop people looking in.

I always assumed it was so you could keep it open for ventilation but still have privacy and it'd be too small for robbers.
Because they are in an area that requires very little audience participation
I blame the Beatles and Joe Cocker. I imagine the silver spoon can only detect female intruders through a small window.
