Bathroom Skylights

One of the design challenges was ensuring privacy from the neighbouring two-storey unit block. The proposed design of the house is such that it has "turned it's back" on the 6-pack next door. Not only have we limited views to the units from our house, we have ensured that there is little if no overlooking from the units as well.

I haven't really considered skylights previously, but we have decided to use them in our bathrooms to (a) ensure privacy, and (b) to create a unique bathing, or should I say showering, experience. The Skydome skylights we have selected are made of clear acrylic, so we will get lovely views of the sky - almost like showering outdoors.

Have a look at these examples - I think they work really nicely.

Not only will we gain heaps of natural light into our bathrooms, but there will be no need to install exhaust fans as the skylights are also ventilated. I think they look good in contemporary designs, but also work well in traditional homes too.


  1. Did you know that natural light can help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm, letting you have a better sleep at night? Aside from that, they add value to your home, and they are also eco-friendly. Skylights are actually considered green because of the benefits it provides to Mother Nature. People will be able to reduce the use of artificial lights if they have skylights at home. And with that, they're helping to lower the heat in the environment.

  3. I love the idea of feeling like you’re almost showering outdoors. :D The only difference is you feel safer there - the skylights connect you to the outdoors. And even if you have small space, a window on the ceiling can help your bathroom feel taller, so the space wouldn’t feel crowded or cramped. What more can you ask for, right? :D

  5. Aah! Bathroom skylights! Having one is a win-win solution because it has economical and aesthetical advantages. You'll be able to save electricity because you don't always need to turn on the lights, as natural light can sufficiently light up a certain room. Also, you can always enjoy the beauty of the sky, whether it’s daytime or nighttime.
