6 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Window

Selecting a window for your bathroom might seem like a minor detail, but your choice makes a significant difference to the space. With the right window, you can ensure privacy, let in natural light and even make your bathroom look more stylish. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® discusses six factors to consider when selecting a window for your bathroom.

1. Privacy 

Ever experienced that awkward shower moment with a nosy neighbor’s cat? Bathroom privacy matters.  From frosted windows to top-light windows placed high on the wall, there are several options that perfectly balance natural lighting and privacy.

2. Ventilation

Remember that steamy mirror after a hot shower? Proper ventilation can help clear that up, prevent mold growth and eliminate odors.

3. Natural Light

Nobody likes a gloomy bathroom. The right window can fill your space with abundant natural light. Consider a skylight or a glass block window, which can flood your bathroom with sunlight while offering privacy.

4. Durability and Maintenance

Bathrooms can be humid, meaning your window must be able to withstand these conditions. When choosing a window, make sure that it’s durable and low-maintenance. This way, you won’t have to worry about damage for years to come.

5. Style and Aesthetics

Your window should complement your bathroom’s design. Fortunately, there are several bathroom window options out there that fit all kinds of aesthetics. If unsure, you can get the help of a home designer or window contractor.

6. Energy Efficiency

An energy-efficient window can help maintain your bathroom’s temperature and save on utility bills. Choose a window that’s known for superior energy performance.
