How do I insulate a big shower window in the winter?
We live in the mountains and winter time is here and that means our bathroom is freezing. We don’t know what to cover a large window with other then a piece of wood but would rather see something a little more eye pleasing. Also we want something temporary that we can take down once spring comes. The window measures 45 inches by 45 inches. So if anyone has an idea we would love to hear it.Thank you so very much,

Hi Kerri! One that popped in my head was bubble wrap. You moisten the glass, and smooth the wrap over the glass. I've used that on large french doors and not only did it keep the room warmer, but, the light coming in was pretty, too. It's inexpensive and easy to do.
Hi Kerri, I agree with Cynthia, I have used bubble wrap on windows. Just spray the window with a couple of drops of dish detergent in water and spray the window. Then put the smooth side of the bubble wrap on the window and smooth down with your hands. It worked great for me and is cost efficient.
Doubling your insulation with the plastic/bubble wrap and thermal draperies will further reduce any air infiltration. If you prefer, you can purchase heavy duty, light blocking and thermal break lining at JoAnne fabric or fabric suppliers, to make your own custom width/length drapery.
The shrink wrap works if you need to keep the light, but if you really want it warm then take a piece of the pink Foamular insulation. Cut it to fit the window snug, then wrap it with contact paper or a pretty fabric. Wedge it in the opening until spring!
