When you’re planning a window replacement project for your bathroom, make sure that you carefully plan for it. This is because the windows that you’ll pick for your bathroom space will affect its ventilation and privacy. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia, shares the factors that go into picking new bathroom windows.
It’s important to consider your window’s size when you’re shopping for new windows. Make sure that your window openings can accommodate your new windows. Otherwise, you can opt for custom-fitted ones. Keep in mind that adding a new window will help brighten up your space and make it look bigger. Also, the bigger your window is, the more air and light you allow in, although it decreases your privacy. This is why you can get drapes or fixtures to mitigate this issue.
Your window installation expert will mention that your prospective window’s style is important since it will affect how it will perform in terms of ventilation and privacy. When you’re looking for bathroom windows, make sure that you consider double-hung, casement, or sliding windows. They help keep your room ventilated while removing moisture, preventing issues such as mold growth and rotting.
Some windows provide a wide glass area for you to enjoy a great view of the outdoors. However, too much transparency can hurt your privacy, especially if you’re installing windows for your bathroom. Fortunately, you can treat this issue by getting textured windows that are frosted, stained, or seeded. Once done, it can obscure the view behind the glass. Another cost-effective way to increase your privacy is to apply privacy films to make your panes opaque.
