Bathroom windows are a bit problematic in terms of design. This room requires a high level of privacy but also needs adequate ventilation and lighting to function properly. Choosing the wrong window doesn’t just make the room look bad; it can affect how it functions.
In this post, Dreamstyle Remodeling explains why double-hung windows are the best window style for the bathroom.
As with any window, the size varies depending on how its constructed, double-hung windows are generally narrower and more compact than other window styles. This makes them the ideal window for a more private setting.
Unlike casement windows, which swing open and generally accommodate a wide area, double-hung windows open via sash. You simply slide open the top or lower part to ventilate the room. This makes them low-key windows that don’t draw attention, helping retain the private setting of your space.
Double-hung windows are unique in how they ventilate the room. Which sash you open affects which kind of air enters the room. When you open the bottom sash, you let cooler air in. Opening the top sash, on the other hand, allows you to let in warmer air.
This is valuable for a space like the bathroom which tends to be humid and accumulate moisture faster. Double-hung windows essentially allow the bathroom to breathe more effectively.
Despite being a classic window style, the general aesthetics of the double-hung window design allows it to blend and match almost any architectural style. This means that even if you have a house that’s ultra-modern or minimalist, the double-hung window will still be flush to the wall.
