Is it time to give your bathroom a much-needed facelift? If it’s been decades since you’ve done this, you’re likely very excited to make a modern change. While you may be preoccupied with the flooring you want or the fixtures you will add to your new sink, it’s important not to neglect replacement windows. These are essential features to a bathroom from both an aesthetic and functional standpoint.

Today we will discuss the best window styles for bathroom remodels. In general, ventilation is the name of the game, as moisture accumulation in bathrooms due to showers can cause a lot of problems such as mold growth. Privacy is also important in this room, so you’ll want to choose windows that allow you to control privacy levels.

Casement Windows

Ideal for narrow walls and small bathrooms, these windows are tall and open outward. Casement windows not only add architectural distinction, they have high security ratings and provide plenty of ventilation – essential for any bathroom. Because they crank outward, you can control the exact amount of air flow you want.

Awning Windows

These are common in many bathrooms. Hinged along the top, they open up and outward for exceptional ventilation. Use them as a small shower window, or add a large one over your bathtub or spanning across a wall. With the addition of privacy glass, you are still shielded from view even when the window is opened.

Sliding Windows

Another common window type found in bathrooms, sliding windows are ideal in a shower stall or over a tub. They don’t take up a lot of space due to how compact they are and the fact that they don’t tilt out or in. With the push of a finger, you can slide them open and closed for easy use. Add privacy glass for added security, especially on the first floor.

Double-Hung Windows

These are the most popular window type overall. Many homeowners use them throughout their homes, and the bathroom is no different. With a seamless fit in any room, double-hung windows offer plenty of light and ventilation. Low in maintenance, you can move both the top and bottom sashes independently.

Custom Windows

If you have an odd-shaped bathroom that won’t accommodate a standard window, or if you just want something special and unique, consider designing a custom window or pairing a standard window style with a custom one. This way, you’ll be the only one on the block with such a unique conversation piece.
