It’s difficult to imagine a bathroom without windows. It’s even harder to actually have a windowless bathroom and address lighting and ventilation concerns. While windowless bathrooms are a reality for some homeowners, it’s not entirely a hopeless case. Let DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Livonia, a preferred local bathroom remodeling company, show you how to make a windowless bathroom a more welcoming space.
No Windows, No Problem
While not having a window in the bathroom is a less-than-ideal situation, you can make it work using less conventional means. For one thing, you can choose to install a skylight or sun tube if your roof and bathroom permit. This way, you can achieve natural lighting while cutting back on electricity costs. Skylights can also provide some much-needed ventilation in a windowless bathroom.
A Pop of Color
Don’t underestimate the power of paint when it comes to opening up your bathroom space. Choose light hues in a high-gloss or a semi-gloss finish so any existing light can be reflected better. Don’t forget to paint your bathroom ceiling in the same or an even lighter hue for maximum brightening effect.
A full-length mirror can make your windowless bathroom feel less cramped. While you’re at it, embrace glass and transparent features (as in a transparent shower curtain) since these can help open up your bathroom space.
Go Ahead & Ventilate
Installing vent fans can be an important solution to reducing the humidity in your windowless bathroom. If that’s not an option, a compact dehumidifier could get the job done.
