Is your bathroom in need of some improvements? It’s possible to transform your dated bathroom without undergoing a major overhaul. Installing new windows is one way to do this and they will not only upgrade your bathroom, but will also provide you with multiple other benefits.
In addition to making your bathroom appear more attractive, adding new windows will increase ventilation in this small, damp space. Bathrooms are wet spaces, and all the cracks and crevices around fixtures and baseboards are great places for water to hide in. Having new easy-to-open windows in your bathroom will allow you to air out the room regularly. This good air flow will help prevent the growth of dangerous mold and mildew which can be hazardous to your family’s health.
They Give the Illusion of More Space
New windows add dimension to your bathroom, making it look larger than it is. The natural light that floods in also makes smaller rooms appear bigger and brighter. If you’re concerned that a large window will diminish your privacy, don’t be. There are plenty of privacy options including frosted, beveled, or stained glass, so you can reap the benefits of having plenty of natural light without sacrificing your privacy.
They Provide a Polished Look
If a beautiful bathroom is what you’re going for, new windows are the way to go. They’ll transform your dark and dingy bathroom into a bright, visually appealing space you won’t want to leave. New windows will make the whole room appear more finished and maintained, even if that’s the only change you made in your bathroom.
They’re Easier to Clean and Maintain
Another major benefit to purchasing new windows for your bathroom is the material will be easier to clean and maintain. If your existing windows have wood frames, they can lead to mold and moisture issues. New windows are made of materials that don’t require much as far as maintenance goes, making them one less you’ll have to scrub and scour in the bathroom.
Types of Bathroom Windows
The bathroom is an unconventional room in your home compared to others as it deals with a fair amount of moisture. The last thing you want is mold, so it’s important to choose the right type of windows for your bathroom that are made with materials that hold up to that kind of environment. It’s also important to have them professionally installed. Improper installation can lead to problems no matter what material you choose.
Transom Shower Windows
One great bathroom option is to install a transom window in the shower. A transom window is a horizontal window, much like an accent window above a door. A transom lets in lots of natural light while still providing privacy as it’s placed above your head or at eye level. It can really add a lot of character to your space as well, and since it is placed high on the wall you won’t necessarily need to add window treatments.
Glass Block Windows
Glass block windows have evolved over the years. While traditional glass blocks couldn’t be opened in the past, that’s not the case today. Glass block can be fixed into a window frame that contains a middle part that can be opened to allow proper ventilation. Glass block offers privacy while giving your bathroom a stylish, modern look.
