Attractive Windows for the Bathroom
A bay window above a jacuzzi tub can add light and sophistication to a bathroom.
The bathroom can present a unique situation for window installation. Privacy is a concern, as well as ventilation and lighting. All too often, the original designer resorts to that standard, boring one-foot frosted-glass window atop the shower. Or, there is always that free-spirited designer that decides to put a window right in the shower. If you are planning a bathroom remodel, some of the following ideas will ensure your window is not only practical, but a focal point as well.
If redesigning your bathroom, why not create as luxurious a room as possible? Install a bay window above a Jacuzzi tub or add a comfy window seat. A round window can be a unique option and works well higher up a wall above a toilet or sink. A sun-burst window above a standard window creates an elegant feel while adding more light. Utilize wall space, and if working around a difficult layout, install windows higher up a wall.
Don’t avoid adding large windows in your bathroom because of privacy concerns. There are plenty of beautiful privacy windows to choose from, and a large window can add light and beauty. One of the more traditional choices, glass block can be used in showers or in a large portion of the wall. Choose from frosted glass, art glass, or stained glass. Leaded or beveled glasses are beautiful, as well as a less expensive polymer glass imitations. Remember window treatments can always add additional privacy.
In any remodel, optimizing natural light should be an important inclusion. A skylight is always an easy solution in any room. Decorative small windows can be installed around a shower or above a tub. Whatever your choice, choose windows that open for ventilation.
Windows come in a variety of colors, finishes, and design options. Choose from wood, vinyl, or aluminum frames. Glass options include grid panels, plain glass, French rail, frosted, beveled, or leaded glass windows.
