A brighter, happier bathroom is possible with new windows, but what do you need to know first? Choosing the right bathroom window can be a little tricky. You want the window to be big enough to let in plenty of light, but still maintain your privacy.
The bathroom is a unique room in your home as it deals with a fair amount of moisture. The last thing you want to contend with is mold, so that’s why it’s so important to select the right type of bathroom windows and have them professionally installed. Bathroom windows must also do a proper job of insulating the room, so the temperature stays as comfortable as it is in the rest of the home.
New windows in the bathroom will provide you with many amazing benefits. Choosing windows made with high quality materials are much easier to keep clean. For example, if your existing windows contain wood frames, that can lead to dangerous mold and moisture issues. New windows for your bathroom are the cleaner, healthier option for your family and guests.
They can also make a smaller bathroom appear larger as windows can visually expand the space. Plus, new windows just make the entire room look more finished and maintained. Who wants to spend a lot of time in a dark, dingy bathroom?
There is nothing boring about bathroom windows either. While it may seem that your bathroom window choices would be limited, there are actually lots of great options to choose from. Here are a just a few that work really well in bathrooms:
Glass Block Windows
When you picture glass block windows, you’re probably thinking of the traditional glass block which can’t be opened, but that’s not your only glass block option available today. Glass block windows can be fixed into a window frame with or without a middle part that can be opened for ventilation, which is perfect for a bathroom.
Transom Window in the Shower
A transom window is a horizontal window, such as an accent window above a door. In the shower, a transom window lets in loads of light, while still providing plenty of privacy since it’s placed above your head or at eye level.

Privacy Doesn’t Have to be an Issue
One of the biggest concern’s homeowners have when it comes to bathroom windows is privacy. While the majority of the windows in your home are transparent, this isn’t ideal or practical when you’re shopping for the bathroom. When choosing new windows for your bathroom, consider frosted, texture, stained, or seeded glass options.
You also have the option to install a privacy film on your new windows. There are also varying degrees of transparency. You might consider making the bottom half of your window opaque, while keeping the top half clear, or putting a transom or moon shaped window above a larger textured window. The simplest privacy option is to add blinds or curtains to give you additional privacy, but keep in mind that the window covering options must also be water resistant in order to prevent mold and mildew formation.
