We are having an extension built and at the end of the property in what will be a bathroom there will be a large arch window above a free standing bath.

Originally I'd planned this to be an opening window but after going to the window shop I've decided to have it as a fixed panel as the opening would mean they'd be a lot of white plastic and I think this'll ruin the effect.

Anyway, the rest of my windows have square lead design, so we can have just this, or I was thinking maybe having more of a design, perhaps coloured pattern or something more creative with the lead.

Do you think this is a bit tacky? Will I regret it? Is plain leaded squares better?...

A plastic window? With fake lead?

Will you have privacy glass in the window??

I agree with PigletJohn, don't like plastic+lead, sorry.

Could you have a look at architectural salvage and use some old stained glass?
We use windows from our house as indoor panels and have had one triple glazed to use as an outdoor window with an otherwise v contemporary extension. Looks great.

Leave it plain, no lead, no pattern.

All of the windows in our house are upvc, so it would look weird something else.

At a minimum it'll need to be lead squares to match all the rest of the windows. One plain glass one would look strange I would have thought :/

Could maybe find an old panel but as it's arched might be hard to find one that fits.
