Benefits of skylights in the bathroom
The bathroom is a sanctuary for many, with daily rituals and the foundations of a good day usually starting within those four walls.
This is why having a positive, bright and enjoyable space is so important for many people. In our latest blog, we outline why your bathroom may benefit from a skylight’s increased light and ventilation.
Because of their need for natural light and seclusion, bathrooms are ideal locations for skylights. Bringing in natural light from above is vital for many bathroom activities, such as hairstyling, makeup application, and selecting an outfit for the day.
Installing a skylight also allows more wall space for mirrors, art and storage within your bathroom, which is always appreciated!
Skylights for natural light
Whether shaving, applying make-up or just checking yourself out, mirrors work better with natural light!
This is because it is the only way that we can see how we really look outside. However, aesthetics are only one of the reasons that you may benefit from more natural light in your bathroom.
For the mind
Supporting our biological clock, having natural light in your bathroom will wake you up and get you ready for bed in a more natural way than that artificial light.
On top of this, serotonin is shown to be increased by natural light, giving you happier feelings – often much needed when we wake up!
For your plants
Some house plants can thrive within the warmth and dampness of a bathroom; however, without proper ventilation and light, you may find that your house plants want more.
A skylight can be a perfect solution to keeping your plants happy.
For the planet and your wallet
Skylights can save you money and help towards using less electricity within your home. Harnessing the natural light from outside and bringing the daylight into your home benefits your mind, and your wallet will also thank you.
Skylights bring additional privacy
As many of us balance the line between wanting to have natural light in the bathroom and preventing wandering eyes, windows are often covered by bubbled vinyl stickers or full blinds. Leaving us without the joys of natural light and using artificial lighting solutions.
Skylights can combat this by giving you privacy while keeping the room bright and giving you a direct view of the sky above. So you can watch the birds without the risk of anyone catching you in the bath.
Skylights prevent unwanted moisture and condensation
Mould is a leading cause of breathing problems, and mould is most commonly found in warm damp places, such as a bathroom. Preventing your bathroom from gathering moisture will extend the longevity of your bathroom interior and will leave you breathing easily.
Ventilating skylights are a perfect solution to reducing moisture build-up in the bathroom without leaving windows open or using loud extractor fans.

You can completely replace your fan and duct system with the right skylight, giving you a more natural way to combat condensation and mould growth in your bathroom; – you may even find it smells better too.
