Windows are an integral component of any room, but they are especially important in bathrooms. You’ll need to plan it so your bathroom windows not only keep the space relaxing and private, but bright and fresh, as well. The premier windows and patio doors company in the area, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares how to choose the perfect windows for your bathroom.
Go for windows that provide greater ventilation. The fact is that bathrooms generate an excess amount of moisture, making mold growth in the space more than a possibility. To prevent this issue, make sure to choose windows that can increase access to natural ventilation. They can help lower humidity levels in your bathroom, getting rid of that muggy feel while keeping the space cooler and fresher. But which window styles will fit your needs?
Double-hung and casement replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen® of Portland do. Our double-hung units have two operable sashes that can be opened at the same time, allowing warm, humid air to escape through the top sash while letting in cooling breezes via the bottom sash. Our casement windows, meanwhile, have sashes that can be opened wide or angled to direct fresh air into your bathroom.
Consider the window size. You’ll want to let as much natural light as possible into your bathroom. This can mean selecting bigger windows–but doing so can also compromise privacy. No worries–there are a few ways to go around this. You can, for instance, have the windows installed higher up the wall. The placement allows natural light to stream into your space, but you’ll still be shaded from view. Using privacy films and window treatments is also a viable option.
