What to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Window

Replacing your bathroom window is not like any other window replacement project involving the other areas of your home. It has slightly different requirements, and that means striking the balance between natural lighting, ventilation and privacy. Kroll Construction, your local source of replacement windows in Michigan, shares the things you need to consider when choosing a new bathroom window.

What to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Window

Window Size

If your window replacement project is part of a bathroom remodel, consider getting the biggest window area the room will allow. Whether it’s a single large window or a row of smaller windows, you are sure to bring natural light into your bathroom interior and make the whole space look brighter and spacious.


The need for privacy, however, might prevent you from getting a larger bathroom window. Even so, there are many ways to control it. Choose windows with textured or frosted glazing, or equipped with decorative stained glass. They help obscure the view, yet they still provide adequate amounts of lighting and ventilation. Window treatments like lacy curtains and whole- or half-window shutters are proven alternatives to amplify privacy while taking advantage of daylighting.

Window Style

Ample ventilation is required to combat humidity inside the bathroom. As such, the room needs at least one operable window. It can either be a standalone installation or combined with another non-operable window. Most window styles work within a bathroom setting, allowing you to select your preferred style, whether it’s a casement, double-hung or sliding window.
