Can I have a window in my shower?
You can, but be prepared for possible trouble. Water getting between the window and the interior wall is the problem. It may lead to wood rot and can also cause tile or other surrounding finish material to separate from the underlayment. A better solution is to install a glass or acrylic block window flush with the wall that is sealed and caulked all around its edges. Some block windows have a small awning window at the top that opens to allow shower steam to escape.
Tub surrounds can be cut to accommodate a window, and some include special vinyl wraps to fit around the window and seal all openings.
You might also put a small shower curtain across the window to keep water off it. But whatever you choose, keep all joints between the window frame and the wall caulked, and sponge the area dry after each use.
