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.

"The men who came out were able to work with each other good and professional showing us how the job would start and how long it would take. While they were doing their job they saw that the windows sills were off balance and very diligent and made it repairable to place the new windows in they cleaned up the area where they were working and made it look like no one had been there. They were very polite."

"I have purchased 16 Anderson windows and they are great. The windows are perfect but the installation was the best. It is a joy having these windows in my 1910 home."
