It can be a challenge to pick windows for your bathroom. You want your space to be well-lit while still maintaining privacy. Proper ventilation also matters because excessive humidity can encourage mold growth, which can spread around your home.

So, what windows should you use in your bathroom?

Window Styles

With privacy glass, awning windows can still hide the inside view of your bathroom even if the windows are open. Operable windows like awnings are also more efficient than other styles. The compression seals form an airtight seal when the windows are shut, minimizing heat loss. You can also combine an awning window with a stationary window for more natural light.

Window Size 

The brighter your bathroom is, the more spacious it looks and feels. You can get more natural light with bigger windows, but privacy can be an issue. Consider installing multiple windows to brighten up your bathroom. An experienced window contractor or home exterior renovations expert can help you choose the right size windows for your space.

Glass Options  

There are various glass styles that are suitable for bathrooms. Stained glass would work well in older homes while frosted glass is ideal for modern bathrooms. If you have a vintage bathroom you may also consider seeded glass. Moreover, glass block windows can also give your home more character.


By placing windows higher on the wall, you can make your bathroom brighter while still maintaining privacy. You should also consider the shape of the window. A narrow window placed higher up will provide the same amount of light as a tall window placed in the lower part of the room.
