Choosing a bathroom window requires special considerations due to the nature of the space. Bathrooms benefit from plenty of ventilation and natural light, but privacy is also important.
In this post, replacement door experts from Renewal by Andersen® of Austin discuss the four factors you need to consider when choosing a new window for your bathroom.
Transparency – Transparent windows can be a privacy issue in the bathroom. Luckily, you have many options to maintain your privacy with a bathroom window such as frosted, stained, seeded or textured glass. In fact, glass block windows are the most popular choice for bathrooms.
Placement – The transparency of your window isn’t the only factor that can help you maintain privacy in your bathroom; the placement of said window plays a big role too. If you want more privacy, consider placing your windows higher on the wall. Alternatively, you can have skylights installed to provide the perfect balance of privacy and natural light. To install windows in your bathroom, don’t hesitate to turn to the doors and window experts of Renewal by Andersen of Austin.
Size – If you want your bathroom to feel and look bigger, you need to adjust the size of your window to allow as much natural light in as possible. The bigger the window is, the more light there’ll be. However, make sure the size won’t compromise your privacy when trying to make your window bigger.
Style – Since bathrooms get humid, ventilation is important, and an operable window can help you with that. There are many operable window styles you can choose for your bathroom such as sliding, casement, awning and double-hung.
