The Right Minneapolis Replacement Window Can Turn Your Bathroom Into a Private Retreat

As one of the leading replacement window companies in the Twin Cities area, we’ve been getting calls from homeowners who are interested in makeovers for certain spots in their houses. And now that most of us are spending more time at home than before, having a spot you really love is extremely important.  Being able to relax and de-stress is at the top of many lists, and in this article we’d like to focus on transforming your bathroom with the right windows.

People tend not to think about bathroom windows as they do for those in other parts of the house that may be more visible or get more traffic.  Sure, most trips to the bathroom are quick in-and-outs, but wouldn’t you love to have a luxurious, inviting space to relax when you need a break?  It might amaze you how a window could make a break your bathroom.

One of the biggest design trends right now in bathrooms is the ‘statement tub.’ What is it exactly?  Usually a stand-alone tub, like a claw foot, slipper, or the innovative egg-shape, a statement tub is the focal point of the room.  It’s usually quite deep, made for soaking.  Now, if you’re going to spend an extended time indulging in the warmth of that water, what are you going to look at?  That’s where the ‘statement window’ comes in.

Most of the time a statement tub is placed underneath a large window that hopefully looks out on a picturesque view.  But even if what’s outside your window is a little ordinary, the right window can make the most of it.  Here are some ideas:

  • For great views, consider a picture window that will literally frame the area like a work of art.  If ventilation is an issue, you can pair it with casements or double-hung windows. 
  • If privacy is of concern, choose a window with obscuring or art glass. A glass block wall might be the right choice if an open expanse of glass isn’t practical. 
  • Turn your bathroom into a private greenhouse with a garden window!  You can fill the glass shelves on this type of window with moisture-loving plants and create a lush, green oasis. 
  • If you’re looking for something unique to pair with your unique tub, why not consider a specialty shape window

For some inspiration, check out our Pinterest board, “Bathroom Windows for Statement Tubs.”  And even if you don’t have a statement tub, you can find ideas for bathroom windows on another of our Pinterest boards.
