5) Glass block, fixed glass or glass door

This last solution requires more complex interventions, but which can lead to a truly surprising result. We are talking about glass block or fixed glass , to be mounted to replace a portion of the wall; in this case you must first make sure that this is permitted by the building regulations in force. Alternatively or in synergy, you can think of installing a frosted glass door , an idea that does not require particular technical requirements and helps to make the environment brighter by letting natural light penetrate.

In addition to exploring various lighting solutions, we suggest paying the utmost attention to the choice of furnishing colours : it is preferable to prefer colors in light shades such as white, cream, beige, which together with the light sources will be able to enhance the brightness of the room without windows.

And your windowless bathroom is ready to welcome you and your guests!
