Ways to Achieve Both Privacy and Natural Light in the Bathroom

Choosing windows for your bathroom takes a little more ingenuity than is required for other rooms. This is because of the combined requirements of bringing in enough natural light while also providing privacy. If you need to replace your bathroom windows, consider these ideas shared by Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA before making a decision.

Obscured Glass

One of the easiest ways to maintain privacy without sacrificing light is through the use of obscured glass, which will allow you to choose the window shape, size and style you want without messing with window coverings or being concerned about privacy. With Renewal by Andersen’s High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass, you can choose from several different dimpled, frosted or textured patterns that will help you achieve the desired effect. Obscured glass will obstruct the outdoor view, but if this is a problem for you, you do have the option of only using it in the lower panes, leaving the upper ones clear to enjoy the view.

Window Coverings

Another way to protect your privacy while letting in light is by using window coverings. A set of flowing sheer curtains is a simple, elegant solution that will maximize the amount of light filtering in. If you prefer colored window treatments, you can take comfort in knowing that the High-Performance Low-E4 glass standard on all Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows helps blocks the sun’s harmful UV rays, thus slowing the fading of colored fabrics. Blinds or shutters are another excellent option if you prefer something more substantial.

Awning Windows

Renewal by Andersen® awning replacement windows are another smart alternative for your bathroom. When placed high on a wall, they’ll give you the privacy you seek while still providing plenty of natural light and increased ventilation. And because of the design of awning windows, which hinge at the top and open at the bottom, they can even be opened to let in fresh air when it’s raining.
