    Are you a DIY'er? You can remove the window, add studs, insulation and sheetrock on the inside. You'll also have to repair the outside wall of the house. Or you can hire a contractor to do it for you.

    If you can't get it out through a door or window, get a sawzall and cut it in two.

    I might be crazy but I would love more light in a small bathroom, not less. But, that's just me. Can you perhaps hang pictures or mirrors in frames from the top and soften the light without changing the structure? Here's an example of what I mean. Hope that helps.

    Before you remove the window, make sure you have a vent system that works well as you don't want extra humidity (and any odors) drifting into the rest of the house. Personally, I would LOVE a window in my bathroom!

      I am not to worried about the humidity, it has only a sink and lavatory , it is an older modluar and has no storage space i was considering possible shelves in the opening. Thank you!

    Your local county regulations may require ventilation so check with your Planning and Zoning Dept. before you install anything. If you don't follow the regulations, you may have trouble when the house is sold. I also agree with the odor and humidity issue.
