The bathroom has unique needs when it comes to windows. From ventilation to privacy, you need to ensure you’re choosing the right type of window for this space. To help you make the right decision, consult a local window replacement contractor like Renewal by Andersen® of Portland. Today, we discuss key factors to consider when choosing a window for your bathroom.
The best way to make your bathroom look and feel more spacious is to allow as much natural light as possible into the space through the window. The bigger the unit is, the more sunlight will flood inside your bathroom. If privacy is a concern, consider choosing textured glass or installing window treatments.
To make sure privacy is maintained, consider window glass that is textured in such a way that you can’t see what’s behind it. You also have the option to give your window glass varying levels of transparency. For instance, you can make the top half of the window clear while keeping the bottom half opaque or textured.
Window replacement pros recommend operable windows for bathrooms to allow maximum ventilation. Humidity is a common problem inside the bathroom, so you want to be able to open the window to vent the space. This helps reduce the risk of mold and mildew growth.
The Benefits of Custom-Made Windows
Custom-made windows offer the benefit of non-standard sizing, which means that you have the freedom to determine the measurements and features you need to achieve the look you desire for your bathroom. Since there’s no need to resize or modify existing openings, you can easily preserve the appearance of your bathroom space.
