Bathroom windows could actually cost a lot less than the prices quoted here – since they are generally smaller in size. You could pay as little as £150 for a single bathroom window!
However, you may pay extra to get a frosted window or a special opaque design. It won’t break the bank, however. You can expect to pay a modest £10-£30 to apply frosting film or a different patterned film to your bathroom windows.
There are companies that provide these upon request along with the purchase of bathroom windows. Check with your window provider first to see if they can give you frosted windows at a discounted price.

What makes bathroom windows special?
What specific bathroom window characteristics should you consider when remodeling? Here we will outline each one, namely size, condensation, warmth, and privacy.
Generally speaking, bathroom windows are smaller than windows in other areas of the home. This is because the bigger they are, the higher the heat loss and loss of privacy. Bathrooms are best kept cozy so here choosing a smaller size could be preferable. However, this does not have to be the case. You could cover the bottom half of the opening, invest in some nice curtains or frost the entire thing, eliminating privacy issues but also any potential views.
Bathroom windows are the biggest sufferers of condensation in the home. The one exception to this is the kitchen, depending on how much of a cook you are! Condensation can damage wooden windows in particular. We don’t always think of treating the interior of the frame to withstand temperature and moisture fluctuations though in this case, it is necessary. You can also mitigate the condensation issues by having an extractor fan installed or by being very diligent with opening the window after showering. Tilt and turn windows are especially well-suited to this use since they can be fully opened to let the steam out and then opened slightly for a longer period since security issues are less of a concern.
Having a nice and cozy bathroom can seem like a bit of a luxury but it doesn’t have to be! An electric towel-rack is a temporary solution to the cold but there are more permanent options, too. When you remodel your bathroom you can choose a window that doesn’t leak heat to the outdoors or transfer cold air into the room. These windows are especially well-insulated and you could even get them triple glazed. These are more expensive than double glazed but if your bathroom window isn’t very big it could be affordable for you. This will help you to stay cozy and warm throughout the winter mornings!
The last thing you want when you’re stepping out of the bath is to have to worry about if anyone outdoors is taking a little peek. All of us have thought about this from time to time. So, how do you obscure bathroom windows? You can do this by purchasing frosting film or installing curtains or interior shutters. Curtains can be thin but also help with privacy – letting light in but also giving you peace of mind. For more information on how to make bathroom windows private, you can visit this helpful article!
