What style of window would work best in the bathroom? When choosing windows for your bathroom, you need to consider the unique needs of the space, such as ventilation and privacy. Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia shares some tips below.
To maintain privacy in the bathroom while still allowing plenty of natural light inside, opt for frosted, stained, textured or seeded windows. Stained glass windows can work well in traditional homes, while frosted glass is a great option for modern homes. If you’re looking for a unique option, you might want to consider a glass block window.
You also have the option to install a privacy film on your bathroom window instead. This can offer varying degrees of transparency, allowing you to make your window as opaque as you need it to be. You can also ask your window company to leave certain areas of the window clear if that’s what you prefer.
The size of the window affects the amount of light that is able to enter your home. Obviously, bigger windows can allow more light in. However, too big of a window might be a problem when it comes to privacy–but this can be solved via window treatments.
Figure out the best placement for your bathroom window. Ideally, it’s best to have it installed where natural light could be maximized while still upholding privacy. For instance, a narrow window placed high can admit plenty of natural light without sacrificing privacy.
