For new window installation in your bathroom, you must consider ventilation, privacy and natural lighting. Bathrooms are naturally humid places, but fortunately, you can avoid excess humidity with high-quality windows. By opening a window for 15-20 minutes per day, you can reduce bathroom humidity levels and prevent mold growth and moisture-related damage.
To find the best window for your bathroom, consider the following factors.
A bright room usually looks bigger than it actually is. Consider installing large windows so that you can introduce more natural light into your bathroom. Nevertheless, make sure the size of your window is proportionate to the size of the room. Your contractor can help you figure out the ideal window size for your bathroom.
Using larger or multiple windows increases the amount of natural light that enters your bathroom, and it promotes better air circulation. However, this can compromise your privacy. To ensure no one could peek into your bathroom, you should select stained, seeded or frosted window panes. This will help keep your privacy without reducing natural light. Privacy films can make your window opaque and serve as an alternative to textured or frosted glass.
Awning windows are usually perfect for bathrooms because they can be installed higher on the wall, allowing you to maintain privacy. Casements are also a good choice because they can enhance ventilation in the room.
Bathroom windows placed high on bathroom walls provide privacy even without frosted or textured window glass. Higher windows will provide the same amount of natural light as lower windows. Alternatively, you can use a tall window in your bathroom to maximize natural lighting and ventilation.
