When you pursue bathroom remodeling, there’s a good chance you’d be replacing the room’s current window unit. Choosing a replacement, however, can be quite tricky. While you have several options, some of them won’t work well for this unique space in your home.
Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island, the leading window replacement experts in the area, offers these helpful tips for choosing the right window unit for your bathroom.
Unless you live in a secluded area, you may have to scratch large windows off your list of choices. After all, you don’t want to feel worried about your privacy. In this case, transom and clerestory windows would be your best bet. Often installed high above the wall, these units let sunlight in while keeping your bathroom interior out of sight.
Specialty windows are another style you can consider if you want privacy. They are inoperable windows that come in different configurations. At Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, these window units are available in 13 different shapes, including a circle, triangle and an arch.
The bathroom is one of the sources of moisture indoors. When you don’t control humidity in your home, expect water to linger on the building materials. Before you turn this area of your home into a mold-infested space, consider operating windows as a replacement for your current units.
Operable window units such as the sliding and casement types would work perfectly in your bathroom. When opened, they let fresh air in right away, letting the area “breathe” to keep it dry and cool throughout the day.
