Natural Ventilation With Operable Windows
Ventilating your bath is ideally a two-fold approach of both a bath fan and operable windows. Operable windows not only ventilate, but also provide design value, views and natural daylight and help balance the air pressure in your home.
This bath smartly uses hopper windows placed well above eye level to achieve natural light, ventilation and privacy.
This bath has ample operable windows yet maintains privacy with obscured glass. Obscured glass comes in many different patterns, like etched, reeded or rain.
A door from your bath to the exterior is a big design move that also provides lots of fresh air. If you lack access to a walkable surface outside, you can still have doors with a Juliet balcony — a false balcony with a railing mounted just outside the doors.
