The 3 Best Windows for Bathrooms

The bathroom is one of the most cramped rooms in your home and is prone to high humidity. Without ample ventilation, the bathroom will become a very uncomfortable place to be. Thankfully, picking the right window will prevent your bathroom from becoming a problematic area in your house.

Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, your window installation expert, shares the three best windows for your bathroom.

Casement Windows

This window style is excellent for bathrooms despite being a non-standard choice for the area. It features tall window glass panes, which let in a generous amount of light to the bathroom. These windows swing open very wide and have a neat ability to catch side breezes easily. Installing them in the bathroom will improve its ventilation and daylighting at the same time.

Double-Hung Windows

These windows are another good choice for bathrooms and are usually the first thing on your mind when you think: “Do I need new windows?” Like casement windows, they provide daylighting and ventilation to the bathroom. The difference is that a double-hung window operates using a sash that moves up and down and you have more control over how you ventilate the room. Opening the top sash lets in warmer air while the bottom sash lets in cold air.

Picture Windows

Picture windows are an uncommon pick for bathrooms since they are non-operational and can’t ventilate the room. That said, picture windows often have the largest glass area, letting in more light than their counterparts. They’re a good enough choice if the bathroom already has a ventilation system that gets rid of the stale, humid air.

A good alternative to picture windows is the sliding window system. It’s essentially a picture window that slides open, giving the bathroom some much-needed ventilation.
