The bathroom is an intimate and private spot in any home, and the right atmosphere is crucial for home owners and their guests. If you want to liven up the area with a strategic placement of windows and are looking for a replacement window contractor, consider these window options provided by Marvin replacement windows. Remember that these windows have an easy-clean feature, which is important if you want your bathroom to look as clean as it surely is.
1. Double the view with a mirror
Putting a window near the corner of the bathroom adjacent to the sink can give you the opportunity to increase the natural light. A large casement window placed near a mirror that stretches the length of the wall will give the illusion that the window is twice as large. Also, both walls will be a source of natural light, providing your bathroom with a well-lit atmosphere. A French casement window might do the trick in this instance due to the lack of a center stile or vertical post, instead permitting a large and unobstructed view that is easy to open.
2. A wall-to-wall glider
If your bathroom is near an area of your yard that is somewhat secluded, or picturesque in its display of nature, you may benefit from having a glider window that spans the space of the wall. Though you may feel an instinct to keep your bathroom a private place, know that curtains made of sheer materia can provide optimal privacy. The glider window brings a contemporary and modern feel to any room, including your bathroom, and it may be a great space-saving alternative to a traditional window. Worried about sacrificing the energy quality? The Marvin Ultimate Glider window provides the same the same energy efficiency as that of a commonplace double-hung window.
3. Awnings in the shower
You often see windows set within the walls of a shower. With an awning, however, you can insure maximum privacy by placing a wide opening near the ceiling of your bathroom. This will allow a good amount of natural light to shine in, and the special air flow of its opening feature provides a place for steam to exit. The aesthetic is pleasing even if the shower is not in use, for if it is correctly placed, the awning window will flood the whole room with natural light.
4. A round top along the tub
Round top windows add an air of elegance to any room and are especially capable of standing alone if there are no other windows. People sometimes place their round top next to a bathtub, the aesthetics of each complementing one another in their roundedness. Perhaps a circular mirror could be on this room's renovation plan list as well? Marvin's Ultimate Casement Round Top is provided in many sizes, but you may want to include a design with many small panes to increase your feeling of privacy while also affording a great view and source of natural light.
