How to Choose a Window Replacement for Your Bathroom

Without adequate ventilation, moisture can get trapped in your bathroom, creating a damp environment that’s conducive to mold growth. One way to ensure you have good ventilation in your bathroom is to choose the right type of bathroom windows.

 

To help you get started, here are the factors you need to consider when looking for a bathroom window replacement:

Size

The bigger the bathroom window is, the more ventilation it can provide. However, there’s a tradeoff: the wider the window, the less privacy you have.

Glass Transparency

To balance your bathroom’s ventilation needs and your privacy needs, you can install a window with frosted, stained, seeded or textured glass. Keep in mind that different glass designs let in varying amounts of sunlight. Make sure to discuss your privacy needs with your contractor and they can help you choose the right type of glass.

Windows with textured glass provide a high level of privacy and ample natural lighting at the same time. Natural lighting is essential to any bathroom. Sunlight can make any space feel open and airy.

Window Placement

The higher the window is on your wall, the more privacy it provides. To find out the best location for installing your new windows, consult a professional home improvement contractor.

Window Style

Bathroom windows should be easy to open. Window styles with simple opening mechanisms include casement, awning and sliding windows. Many contractors recommend awning windows for the bathroom, as they can maintain privacy even when open.
