Bathroom Window Buying Guide: Top 5 Replacement Bathroom Windows

3 min read

When it’s time to replace the windows in your home, your bathroom windows might not be at the top of your list. After all, the windows in your bathroom are probably the smallest in your home and may be among the least used.

But don’t neglect them! Believe it or not, your bathroom windows are an important part of your home. And if you’re wondering if you even need that window in your bathroom, the answer is the same no matter what. Read on to learn more and get our bathroom window recommendations.

Does a Bathroom Need a Window?

Yes! It is highly recommended that bathrooms, especially full bathrooms with a shower or tub, have a window.

The reason is simple: ventilation. The bathroom is exposed to more moisture and humidity than any other room in your home. Without ventilation, the risk of mold and mildew growth increases. If mold begins growing and is left untreated, it can spread. This can cause major damage to your home, as well as respiratory issues. A window in the bathroom allows for air flow without relying on a ventilation fan.

In addition, natural light is a welcome addition to any room. The bathroom is no exception!

Best Types of Windows For The Bathroom

There isn’t really a standard bathroom window, but there are certainly windows that are more commonly seen in bathrooms. The most common bathroom windows, which we’ve highlighted below, are popular choices because they allow for easy operation, while still providing ventilation and energy efficiency.

Here are our top 5 recommendations for bathroom windows:

Casement Window

Casement windows are a great choice for the bathroom. They’re tall and open outward, making them perfect for narrow walls and small spaces. If you currently have a double-hung window in your bathroom, you might swap it out for a casement window for a new look!

Awning Windows

Awning windows are a very common addition to the bathroom. They’re hinged along the top and open up and outward for excellent ventilation. They’re great as a small shower window, but large awning windows look beautiful over a bathtub or even across a wall in your bathroom. Another great thing about awning windows? With privacy glass, you can retain privacy even when the window is open!

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are another common choice for the bathroom. This type of window is also great for the shower or over the tub. Our sliding windows are available with 2 or 3-lites and manufactured specifically for your home, allowing you to completely customize them to your needs.

Double-Hung Windows

Our most popular window style works for every room in your home, even the bathroom. Double-hung windows are the most popular for a reason: they fit seamlessly into any room, they’re low maintenance, and since both the top and bottom sashes move, you can customize the ventilation and retain privacy.

Create a Combo With Custom Windows
