Our Bathroom Window Guide
May 24, 2018

We at On the Ball Bathrooms believe bathroom windows need to serve three important functions

  1. Reducing the amount of moisture involved in a bathroom area.
  2. Allowing for natural light.
  3. The final but most important; Stopping the world from seeing me naked.

So the third important function might not be so important for you but the other two are really the key points to selecting the right bathroom window for you. So often for most of our renovations, we do two types of windows in our bathrooms Sliding or Awning.

Below we will cover some basics on why you should pick one or the other

Sliding Window

Aluminium sliding windows are also useful in areas with limited space that cannot accommodate a window sash protruding inside or out – such as your bathroom. The negative about sliding windows are if they are too narrow in height-wise they can look very chunky with too much trim. Below are some variations of sliding windows we have used in our bathrooms over the years.

Awning Windows

The basic description of an awning window is hinged at or near the top of the frame and swings out from the bottom to open. The design of awning windows makes it ideal for ventilation in wet weather with the sash acting as a canopy to keep the rain out. You can also control the amount of air coming in by adjusting the angle of the window. This though can be a negative as they have less ventilation due to how much the window can open. One other negative of the window is the limited fly screen security options and being unsuitable for tight external spaces. It would be the most popular window we do for all our bathroom renovations in Perth.

Sometimes changing a window is not in your budget but you can’t stand the glass that’s currently occupying the space. By changing just the glass might open the whole vibe of the bathroom like this Canning Vale bathroom tomorrow which has switched the glass to a white frost which makes it look so modern.
