Finding Gorgeous Glass For My House

When I started renovating my house, I was really amazed with how many different areas needed brand new glass. It was really interesting to realize that several different portions of the house needed to be completely overhauled, and before I knew it, I was talking with glass vendors about how they could help. They walked through the space, talked with me about different options, and then recommended that I head in to see the examples in the warehouse. The samples were absolutely gorgeous, and I knew right away that I needed to invest in some decorative glass. Check out this website for more information on glass products, vendors, and choosing the right options for your home.

Shopping Tips For Replacing A Residential Bathroom Window

If you are in the process of remodeling your master bathroom and need to replace its window, then there are many choices you will need to make. Thankfully, replacing residential windows has never been easier, and it is now even a job you can do yourself if you have a willing DIY spirit and some basic tools. Regardless of whether you install your own new bathroom window or have it professionally replaced, consider each of these things before shopping:

Choose a Replacement Window with a Vinyl Frame

Since the bathroom is the moistest place in your home, you absolutely must replace the window with one that has a vinyl frame. If you install a window with a wood frame, then it will eventually have problems with wood rot. Metal frame windows will rust or discolor. To avoid these fates, install a vinyl frame window, and it will stay looking new for decades to come.

Select a Bathroom Window that Has Textured or Frosted Glass for Privacy

While you can install a standard clear glass window in your bathroom, you should select one with texture or frosting if the window is in an area where you need privacy. Privacy glass windows prevent the need for full-coverage window treatments while still letting in the maximum amount of light into the space. Alternatively, if your bathroom window is one that was installed high up on a wall where privacy isn't an issue, then you can install clear glass.

Choose Windows that are Easy to Keep Clean

Since your bathroom is continually getting steamed up from people showering, any dust or dirt will tend to gunk up and require regular cleaning. You can make your life a lot easier if you choose a window that is easy to clean. If the window opens, then you can opt for a window that tilts for easy cleaning.

Make Sure the Window You Choose Matches the Style of Your Home's Exterior

Finally, while you may be thinking about how your new master bathroom window will look inside the bathroom, it is even more important that you think about how it will look from the outside of your home. For example, if your home has windows with thin metal frames, then a new white vinyl-framed window will stick out like a sore thumb. Instead, you need to look at the other windows on that exterior wall of your home and choose one that will fit in.
