If you have bathroom windows and you’re tired of making that decision, it’s time for an upgrade. Keep reading to find the best options for your next bathroom window replacement.

Quality Matters

You may not consider the bathroom the best place for high-quality windows. When you’re replacing windows, it’s better to buy nice than buy twice.

What does that mean?  Invest in quality windows now. Otherwise, you’ll pay more to replace cheaper products when they wear out faster. Two cheap windows and their installation probably cost more than one excellent product.

Good quality windows will provide you with better home security. They should also keep out bad weather and hold in the temperature of your home.

A tight seal will keep your home dry and comfortable. Tightly sealed windows provide security for your home as well.

The Cost of Not Replacing Bathroom Windows

Leaving old or rotten bathroom windows can have expensive consequences. Damaged seams allow water or insects into your home. Water can cause mold, especially in bathrooms where the air is often moist.

Bugs can eat away at insulation or even studs. Termites alone cause homeowners over $5 million of damage each year. A professional window replacement service can help you decide if it’s time to replace your old windows.

Privacy Glass

Windows with privacy glass allow the sun to shine in a while, protecting your privacy. ProVia windows offer hand-painted Inspirations Art Glass in an array of styles. These high-quality designs can be applied to many different replacement window styles, including:

  • Double-hung
  • Slider
  • Picture
  • Casement
  • Awning
  • Bay and bow
  • Architectural

All of these are excellent window options. However, casement and awning windows are popular bathroom window replacement styles.

The Inspirations Art Glass collection pieces are truly unique designs. First, a computer creates design outlines. Next, a skilled artisan hand-paints colors.

The partnership between machine precision and personal touch creates a beautiful, high-quality product. Art privacy glass is a great way to get a stained-glass look without the expensive price tag.

Privacy glass eliminates the need for extra window coverings. This is especially helpful in the bathroom, where coverings can easily get wet and damaged.

Tinted Glass

Aeris Casement Windows - Master BathroomTinted windows are another bathroom window privacy option. The amount of light and distance from the windows offer varying degrees of privacy. Homeowners who want additional privacy can choose two panes of privacy glass.

Tinted glass doesn’t just offer privacy. Even a small bathroom window can let in harmful UV rays and extra heat. Tinted windows help reduce UV transmittance and limit solar heat gain.

Tinted glass also reduces glare. This allows you to use those bathroom mirrors any time of day without fighting bright glares.

Frost a Small Bathroom Window

However, frosted glass does allow visible silhouettes, especially in certain light. Many DIYers online have found sprays to frost their window glass.
