Should There Be a Window in a Bathroom?
One of the questions that often comes up during new home construction and bathroom remodels is: “Should I install a window in my bathroom?” There are pros and cons to having a window in your bathroom, and they can vary greatly from situation to situation. Of course, personal preferences also play a big part in the decision. If you’re currently trying to decide whether to have a bathroom window installed in your New England home, here are some factors to consider:
If your bathroom doesn’t have sufficient lighting, a window can do wonders for the overall brightness in the room. Many windows come with frosted or privacy glass options that still allow in copious amounts of sunlight while keeping out prying eyes. Even with the brightness offered by LED lighting, it’s hard to match the natural radiance of the sun.
Most bathrooms are required by code to have some form of ventilation, whether it be through a vent fan or a window. If your bathroom doesn’t have a vent fan and you’d prefer not to have one installed, an awning window might do the trick. Awning windows are hinged at the top and open out, allowing you to keep them open for ventilation purposes even during a light rain.
