Which windows to choose for the bathroom?


Buying windows for your bathroom involves several important aspects. It’s important that your bathroom window frames provide adequate protection from moisture, effective ventilation and privacy, without forgetting the aesthetic fit with the style of the interior.

The variety of solutions available on the market allows for a wide range of choices, which you can adapt to your personal preferences and the specifics of the room. However, in order to be able to do this, you first need to know them all. Which solutions might be the most suitable, taking into account all the factors mentioned?

Privacy and protection from the outside world

An important consideration when choosing windows for a bathroom is to ensure adequate privacy for its occupants. The ideal windows should effectively keep out the eyes of outsiders while allowing natural light to enter.

Frosted glass is often a popular choice as it allows light to diffuse, while preventing the interior from being seen. Alternatively, milk glass or satin glass can also provide privacy while maintaining an elegant appearance.

A modern option is smart glass, which allows you to change the transparency at the touch of a button – from total transparency to full tarnish. Although this solution is more expensive, it offers exceptional control over privacy and light.

For added protection, some windows can be fitted with integrated blinds or shutters, which offer the possibility to easily adjust as required. Such solutions not only increase privacy, but also add a decorative element to the bathroom.

Moisture resistance and easy maintenance

When choosing windows for the bathroom, special attention should be paid to their resistance to moisture and ease of cleaning.

  • PVC is one material that performs very well in such conditions. It is resistant to water, does not corrode or deform when exposed to humid air. PVC windows are also easy to clean, which in turn is important in rooms where steam regularly appears.
  • Aluminium windows, although slightly more expensive, are another excellent choice due to their durability and minimal maintenance requirements. Like PVC, aluminium will not rust, is scratch resistant and easy to clean.
  • Wooden window frames, may offer a natural look, but they require much more attention. To ensure their longevity in the humid environment of the bathroom, it is necessary to regularly apply special varnishes or oils to protect the wood from moisture.

When choosing windows, it is also worth considering the type of glazing. Toughened or laminated glass increases safety of use and is shatterproof.

Ventilation – the way to fresh air in the bathroom

How do you ensure effective ventilation in any bathroom? Keep the air fresh and prevent the build-up of moisture and mould. Windows are an important factor in this, allowing natural airflow that is both healthy and economical.

Choosing windows for the bathroom that can be opened is almost essential. This allows for quick and efficient ventilation, which is very important especially after baths or showers that generate a lot of steam.

In addition, you may wish to consider installing windows with micro-ventilation. Such a feature allows you to gently tilt the window, which remains protected and minimally open, providing a continuous supply of air without having to open it fully. This is particularly useful on colder days when you want to avoid the room temperature dropping too much.

Another option is to use roof windows in bathrooms located in attics. Roof windows are effective for ventilation because hot, humid air naturally rises upwards, and their position makes the air exchange process even more efficient.

When choosing windows for your bathroom, it is therefore worth considering not only their style and material, but also the functionality related to ventilation. By making a well-considered decision, you will contribute to maintaining a healthy and pleasant environment in your bathroom.
