Whether you are having a new home built in the Carolinas or you are in the process of renovating your existing residence, you may find that selecting windows is a tougher task than you were expecting. There are dozens of different window manufacturers on the market, each offering their own unique product lines. 

 

If you are currently in the process – or soon to to be in the process – of choosing windows for a bathroom, you are in the right place! In this guide, we’ll take a  look at some of the most popular types of windows for bathroom spaces. By the time you are done reading, you should have a significantly better grasp of what types of windows are appropriate for the project you’re working on right now. 

 

Skylights – Skylights are immensely for bathrooms, especially those that are located on the first floor of a house. Skylights allow natural light to stream in, while providing complete privacy for those inside of a residence. 

 

Additionally, some types of skylights open and close, allowing fresh air into bathrooms as well. Skylights are not, however, inexpensive. They average between $60 and $100 per square foot.

 

Textured glass panes – Windowpanes that feature textured glass are another great option for bathrooms because they, again, offer privacy for those inside. There are many different textures homeowners can choose from, including wave patterns, leaf motifs, and more. 

 

The main downside of textured glass is that it doesn’t really allow for a view outside, which can be frustrating if you chose your North Carolina or South Carolina property for the beautiful natural scenery. If you decide that textured glass is the way to go, though, you can expect to pay around $800 per window. 

 

Glass blocks – Most people have probably seen glass block divider walls or windows in retro diners or hotels. These can also be used in bathrooms. Glass blocks function similarly to textured glass in that they are designed to allow natural light in, but won’t compromise a person’s privacy. 

 

One of the downsides of glass blocks is that they run the risk of looking dated in certain home styles. However, when the design is right, they can be a chic option. Each block generally runs between $18 and $30 depending on if you choose frosted glass, clear class, or other special features. 

 

Hoppers – Hopper windows are a great, often affordable choice for bathrooms. They are installed high on the wall so prying eyes can’t see in, but they still allow for a view. Hoppers also open from the top, meaning you can let in a breeze while you enjoy a long soak in the tub. 

 

The size of the hopper windows you purchase will play a big role in the final price you pay, but they generally range from about $250 to $750.
