But getting new windows gives you a big opportunity, too. You can make changes that you’ve always wanted for your home. You can expand windows, add to window banks, change styles and colors, and anything else you want. If you’ve always wanted a window in the bathroom, for example, now is the time to make that change. Here are a few considerations for that part of the process.
You’ll Want To Maintain Privacy
The bathroom, above any other room of the house, needs to have privacy. Unless you live in a secluded area and no one ever drives by, you don’t want people being able to see into the bathroom. There are options that can give you a window as well as privacy. You can consider a skylight, for example, to let light in, but no eyes. You can also get a sliding window above the tub, high on the wall. You get light and you can ventilate, but you don’t have to worry about anyone seeing in, either. Or, you can get a regular window and etch the glass. You can also simply cover the window when you don’t want anyone seeing in. There are certainly options to consider.
You’d Like Natural Light
The lighting in the bathroom is very important to how you see yourself as you get ready. When you get ready in a dim room, you might go outside and feel like you look completely different than you thought. Having natural light can really help you see what you are doing. Getting lighting in could mean a skylight to light the room from above. You could also enjoy a regular window, or one above the tub high on the wall. Any will bring lighting into the space.
You Want Ventilation Options
Not every window option opens so if you want to be able to ventilate the space, having a window that opens and that you can access with ease is a good idea. Skylights don’t always open and they aren’t always to reach. Regular windows are simple to open, but it might be hard to get at the one above the tub. Consider that when you look into styles and locations.
