Organized and Intuitively Designed Window Systems
While windows are not the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about bathrooms, they are still an important part of the decor. Bathrooms will benefit significantly from having a well organized and imaginatively designed window system.
Windows let in natural light and warmth, provide ventilation and also make your bathroom space appear more open and less congested. Down at the Calgary Home + Interior Design Show, I happened to stop in at the J Damer Windows and Doors display when I noticed this interesting awning window.
Dan Merkosky the owner of the 1.5 million dollar company had a few words to say about why the European tilt-and-turn window is a great casement solution for your bathroom.
There are many different types of windows you can place in your bath from double hung (slider windows) to casement (awning windows) which are great to ventilate steam out of your washroom. Bay windows are excellent for letting in lots of light and can provide a stimulating view while relaxing in your tub.
If privacy is an issue there is a complete assortment of different types of bathroom window glass to blend in with your decor needs some types include opaque, tinted, frosted, decorative, and the stained glass variety that look great and invariably keep your privacy intact.
Also you may want to incorporate frosted acrylic glass blocks for maintaining your privacy and creating a decorative chic style. If changing the glass is not an option then you can simply add an attractive decorative film over the top of the plain glass to match the rest of your bathroom furnishings.
Dressing up Your Lacklustre Windows
And don’t forget about your window dressing, shutters, blinds and interior as well as exterior screen systems in an assortment of materials, colors and styles, as well as different obscure glass patterns can also be used to your advantage.
What you will actually be doing in your washroom will also determine which windows style you choose.
Exercise areas and a spa bath will both be able to take advantage of awning windows used to circulate fresh air in and out of your bath. Install a high row of casement windows that can be electronically operated if you want the light and ventilation while retaining your discreetness.
And don’t forget to add the size and type of window style based upon the size of the room. Bay windows look good in larger rooms whilst a smaller room will benefit from an accent window which will help to add more dimension to a smaller washroom.
If you are concerned about the energy efficiency of your windows, especially if you have large bay windows then use higher efficiency glass that incorporates low-E2 glass and argon.
Also you may want to look into “warm-edge technology” which is another green technology solution that is being brought onto the market for dual pane windows. Incorporating these new technologies into your bathroom repertoire will keep your lavatory comfortable and in the long run save you some dough on your energy bills.
