In bathroom remodeling, your choice of windows matters because it can greatly affect the way your space functions and looks. It’s imperative to understand how each unit works to pick the most appropriate style for what you have in mind.
Dreamstyle Remodeling lists these great benefits of a perfect bathroom window choice:
Other than the kitchen, the bathroom needs the most ambient daylight. While you can easily brighten up your space with electric lights, nothing beats sunshine. Artificial sources of light, like LED bulbs, can’t match the variation in sun’s light spectrum. In other words, natural light helps the eye perceive colors better than even the best kind of artificial illumination.
Many factors determine the amount of daylighting you can receive in your bath, but window design is one of the most important. If you customize your sliding or double hung windows thoughtfully, you can harvest enough soft, ambient light to do your everyday bathroom tasks more easily.
Operating windows are natural ventilators that help your bath expel indoor moisture. When trapped, moisture turns into condensation, which can accelerate metal corrosion and cause mold growth. Considering that each shower adds half a pint of water into the air, having operating windows is paramount to avoid excessive moisture in the bathroom.
No Cold Air
During the coldest months, the uncontrolled entry of drafts makes matters worse. With the right window style, though, you can minimize air leakage and shut the cold out. Of all operating units, casement windows do this best because they create an airtight seal at closing. If natural ventilation isn’t necessary, consider investing in fixed units to avoid experiencing uncomfortable drafts.
