How do I take a window out in order to gain wall space?

I am wanting to remodel our bathroom. We have a corner where the tub is and a window on each wall leading up to the corner. I want to remove one window so I can bring my double sink vanity further down the wall, but the window is in the way. What are the options to take out that window.

    The biggest issue is how to deal with it outside. You'll have to match your brick, stone or siding

    Not having full details if this is an outside window, you need to fill in the space with 2x4s so that drywall can be attached. Be sure to get the correct depth to match the present wall (3/8s, 1/2, 5/8s inch). The same if the wall on the other side is interior. If exterior, be sure to exactly find the correct siding making sure this is sheeting on either side of wall. Make sure that the siding is staggered instead of just filling in the opening. Water can get in and peels exterior paint. We found out the hard way!
