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.

"Our windows were the original ones that were installed when they built the house in 1972. They wouldn't open, they had been painted shut. They were single pane and the glaze was cracked everywhere. I had to put plastic up every year to help keep the house warm at least a little bit. My MIL was surprised that there weren't any panes in the windows. Now she loves it. We have put a film on the windows so we can see out but no one can see in. We are loving it!"
