Window in the bathroom or not?

I think a bathroom with no window would be easier to layout and use space more effectively. A fan would be used for ventilation of course. This is my first bus so I am looking for some experienced advice. What do you all think about a windowless bathroom?

I plan on blanking the windows that are behind the shower, and leaving the windows in the head, depending on layout.

A bathroom needs some natural light or it gets kind of claustrophobic. Kind of like an airplane bathroom with no windows.

I am thinking that one of the first things I do after it is "done" is put a fantastic fan in the shower. Just for some good ventilation and light.

That should be an adequate amount of light, and a place where plants would like to hang.

I'll be blanking out my existing bus windows in yhr bathroom for the sake of the layout, but I'll be putting in a small porthole window, like what some vans have

I plan on leaving my windows in so that I can use a small window fan (when necessary) but will be using a frosted glass paint on them to prevent peeping toms.

I left windows on the side that will have the toilet and sink, but covered them on the opposite side where the shower will go. Because of the roof raise, my windows sit high enough that I'm not worried about privacy, and the natural light makes the space feel bigger and more open than it actually is.
