Factors to Consider When Choosing Windows for Your Bathroom

Choosing bathroom windows can be challenging because you’ll want units that provide sufficient light and ventilation while maintaining privacy. With proper planning, style and placement, you can have beautiful and functional windows in your space.  

Here are things to consider when choosing windows for your bathroom from our window and door replacement experts.


More light can make your bathroom look bigger. Having multiple windows can make your bathroom brighter. Bigger windows allow more natural light but make the space less private, especially if it is on the first floor or facing the street.


Traditional windows are clear. You can choose frosted, stained, seeded or texture glass for your bathroom. Various glass designs are available to match different bathroom styles. Stained glass would look good in old homes, frosted glass is great for modern bathrooms and seeded glass complements vintage bathrooms.   

Another option for your replacement windows is privacy film. It makes the glass more opaque for added privacy. Consider making the bottom half of the window opaque while maintaining the transparency of the top half. 


Choose at least one operable window for your bathroom because the room gets humid. High levels of humidity can result in mold, rot and other moisture-related issues. An operable window will keep the space ventilated, minimizing excess moisture. 


Place windows higher on the wall for more privacy. Narrow windows located higher up will allow as much light as a tall window placed lower. Skylights are another great option for maintaining privacy while adding natural light in your bathroom.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
