Natural Lighting Options in Your Bathroom
When remodeling a bathroom, you will likely want to bring in as much natural light as possible. Of course, you’ll also need to make sure you have plenty of privacy, which can make things difficult. We’ve helped people from throughout Long Island find creative ways to bring natural light into their bathroom, and we would like to help you too. Read through some of these fun options and see which ones will work in your home.
Install Privacy Windows
The first option is going to be almost the same as it would be for any other room. Having a window to the outside is the ideal way to bring natural sunlight into your bathroom. To address concerns of privacy, there are many different types of windows to choose from. You can have frosted glass, cloudy glass, and many others, each that offer a different level of privacy and light. Go through your options and find the one that will work best in your bathroom.
Place Interior Windows Up High
Using the natural light that is coming into adjacent rooms of your home is another great idea. This can be done by placing windows along the tope of your bathroom wall that is facing a bright room. Having the windows up high should address any privacy concerns, but if you are still worried, you can use glass options that people couldn’t see through.
Consider a Skylight in bathroom renovation
If your bathroom is on the top floor, you can add a skylight. This is essentially a window that is placed on the ceiling. These are great options as they will bring in a lot of sunlight for most hours of the day. Another advantage is that most people won’t need to worry about privacy (assuming you don’t often have people climbing up on your roof).
A tube skylight is another great option that will work no matter where in your home your bathroom is located. This solution has a tube that travels from the outside down into a skylight setup in your bathroom. The light travels through the tube, often being magnified using mirrors or other options, resulting in a bright ‘window’ that provides lots of natural light. Of course, privacy is not going to be a concern at all with this option, so that is one less thing to worry about. When done properly, the tube skylight can be exposed to sunlight for most of the day, which is another big advantage.
If you have some natural light coming into your bathroom already, you can multiply it with strategically placed mirrors. The mirrors can reflect the sunlight throughout the room allowing you to enjoy all the benefits with very little work. Of course, this option only works when you have another source of the sunlight, so keep that in mind.
