Window in a Shower

Posted by Steve on January 12th, 2003 01:07 PM

I am considering remodeling my bathroom, and I might put a shower/tub against a wall with a window that is about 58 inches from the floor to the sill. The window is 46 inches wide centered on a 66 inch long wall. The window is horizontal slide, double pane, vinyl clad. Right now my sink faces this window which requires that I use a medicine cabinet mirror. I would rather move the sink to a full wall so I could use a regular mirror.

How high above the floor should a window sill be if it is in a shower? (That is for a window that opens, on the side wall of the shower) I have seen model homes where a window sill is about 60 inches above the floor in a shower, and I have one bathroom with a window at 66 inches. I'm concerned about getting the window track, and eventually the wood in the wall, too wet from the inside. I know that higher is better, but is there a guideline or code for minimums?
