Bathroom windows have a variety of useful functions, such as ventilating a hot, steamy room, letting in natural light, and maintaining privacy. In this post, door and window replacement company Renewal by Andersen® of Denver shares some tips for choosing a window for your bathroom.
A cramped, ill-lit bathroom is not exactly the most relaxing place. If you want to make a space appear more spacious and airy than it actually is, adding a large-sized window or multiple windows is the best way to achieve it. However, with massive windows comes the problem of privacy, that is why it is also important to talk about window transparency.
In order to maintain a level of privacy while still allowing copious amounts of sunlight into the bathroom, select windows that are frosted, stained or textured. Windows with stained glass look beautiful in old, historic homes, while frosted windows are better suited in modern bathrooms. You also have the option to apply a privacy film on the window installation to increase its opaqueness.
Since bathrooms often get humid, it is necessary to install at least one operable window, such as a double-hung, casement, or sliding window. This helps keep the room ventilated, warding off problems like mold, odor and rot. If you want to have a large, glass block in your bathroom for design purposes, you can simply place a transom or awning window above it.
While a wide, narrow window placed higher on the wall will allow in as much natural light as a tall window placed lower, it will afford a little bit more privacy. Skylights are also an excellent choice for bathrooms that need to retain seclusion without sacrificing light and views.
