Any window and roofing contractor knows how huge the effect of a window is in any room. In many cases, a homeowner might settle for whatever fits in the space provided in a bathroom, but even a bathroom needs a good window.
Before deciding on the type of window you’ll be installing in your bathroom, take a moment to consider these important factors:
A window has several important jobs, but one of the most important is providing natural light. With the right size of window glass, you can make your bathroom look more spacious. Your window can also provide a way to air out your bathroom and improve the quality of indoor air. A large window is ideal if your bathroom is facing a great view, such as the ocean or the woods.
A large window is great, but the bathroom is a place for doing personal things, so privacy should not be neglected. A large window isn’t a good idea if it’s facing the neighbors, the street or a poor view. There are some options for handling this issue, though. You can install the windows higher than head height, if the dimensions of your bathroom allow. You can also use a type of glass that isn’t clear, such as frosted. Another option is to install window treatments like curtains or blinds.
Any roofing and window professional knows it’s not just about curb appeal. You have to take insulation into account. A large bathroom window is great for lighting and a good view, but make sure to use Low-E glass to reduce heat transference.
The style of your window depends on what you need and of course the overall theme of your home. From double-hung windows to casement windows, there are plenty of options. Ask your contractor about the advantages every type of window presents.
