Window over bathtub

We are building a new house and can't decide what kind of window to have over the bathtub. There is space for a 4'X5' window. What are the pros and cons of double-hung, casement, and slider in this case?

It depends on what else is being used in the rest of the house.

Thanks for your response. The other windows are double-hung throughout. This is a Victorian farmhouse style house.

By your description alone i would have to say go with casement, because they are sealed so no moisture collects "behind" the glass

If there is another window in the room, go with a non-opening single window. You won't want to climb into the tub to open and shut it.

Aren't all windows sealed? What does casement have to do with that?

Go with double hung. You can have special glass put in the bottom sash...like these...for privacy and it will be cohesive with your old house.
