Skylights for Bathrooms

Shower yourself with Sunshine

The bathroom is the place you get yourself ready for the world. You shower; you shave; you apply makeup. Artificial lighting can make it difficult to see well, causing you to strain your eyes trying to discern between the shampoo and conditioner bottles, miss a spot while shaving, or select eye shadow that is too bright for your skin tone. A Solatube Daylighting System can help you avoid these issues by brightening your bathroom with pure, clean daylight. So go ahead and shower yourself with sunshine.




  • No more messing with the lights every time you enter and leave the bathroom.
  • With natural light, reading the small print on medication labels is easier and causes lessstrain on your eyes.
  • Makeup applied in artificial light can end up looking very different when viewed in natural light. Daylighting in your home lets you see how you really look before you venture out in public.
  • Shaving in natural light can help you see better, so you can avoid nicks and missed spots.
  • Electric lights can give off a yellowish glow, makingeven a clean bathroom feel grungy. A Solatube Daylighting System gives your bathroom a cleaner, airier feel.

The Ingredient for a Brighter Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where meals are cooked, studying is done and families and friends gather.

In addition, natural light can improve the look of your kitchen by bringing out the rich textures of your cabinets and counters. A Solatube Daylighting System is the ingredient to make your kitchen a brighter place.


  • Detailed tasks such as cutting vegetables become easier and safer with natural light.
  • Natural light lets colours burst forth, making salads look greener and more appealing.
  • Daylight reduces eye strain, making it easier to read the small print in recipes.
  • A Solatube Daylighting System enables light to be placed exactly where you need it to optimise activities like cooking, reading and socialising.

Transform Small Spaces into Showcases

skylights for closets

Hallways, stairwells, entryways and closets are often overlooked when it comes to lighting. Although they are heavily traffic areas, they remain missed opportunities for ensuring safety, showcasing colours and illuminating the architecture of your home. Solatube Daylighting Systems allow you to bring daylight indoors so you can diminish the dark and transform even the smallest space into a showcase of light.

BenefitsCloset Skylight

  • Make your home more inviting with entryways, hallways and stairwells that are brightly lit by daylight.
  • Hallways often possess underutilised wall space. With natural light present, this space can become a showcase for family photos and artwork.
  • Adding natural light to a dark stairwell can open up the space and help prevent stumbles.
  • Daylight aids in colour rendition, so you’ll see colours in their true state and notice the difference between black and navy blue.
  • Transform an entryway into a showpiece, providing guests with an inviting entry point to your home that makes them feel comfortable and welcome.

Load Your Laundry Room with Light

Doing the laundry covers everything from sorting and washing to folding and ironing. The laundry room is often small and poorly lit, making it difficult to sort colours and mend clothes. Loading in pure, natural daylight can transform your laundry room into an environment that is as clean and bright as the outdoors.



    • Daylight provides perfect colour rendition, making it easier to sort clothes so you can keep your whites white and your colours bright.

Light Your Garage For Safety


Garages present unique lighting challenges because of their large, open spaces. Artificial lighting is spotty at best and produces dark areas that create hazardous conditions when using power tools, working on vehicles, or shelving items for storage. With Solatube Daylighting Systems, sunlight can be piped in to evenly illuminate the full expanse of a garage. The result is a safe and well-lit environment for any task.



  • Dim lighting can make working with power tools or servicing your vehicle a dangerous task. Natural light brightens work areas to improve safety.
  • Tasks like organising your garage can be tedious, especially with inadequate lighting. Daylighting can make it less of a chore by providing well-lit conditions to work in.

Sunlight Lets You Work Smarter, Not Harder


Studies have shown that people who work in sunlight experience less eye strain, take fewer sick days and are more productive. In addition, using daylight in your home office or study can benefit your budget by reducing daytime electricity expenses. So why work harder than you need to? Install a Solatube Daylighting System and start working smarter.


  • Dim, artificial light can make visual tasks such as studying, filing and using a computer hard on your eyes. Bright, clear daylight can ease the strain and make tasks easier to complete.
  • Compared to other rooms, a home office requires specific task lighting. Daylighting allows for precise light placement that helps with tasks such as reading and writing.
  • Furniture in a home office can absorb artificial light, making the room feel dark and closed in. Daylighting counteracts this effect by brightening the space and making it seem larger.

A Solatube Daylighting System delivers correct light placement and size so you can stay focused throughout the day and complete the tasks that are important for your business. -Mike, Solatube Certified Installer

Grownups and kids alike can benefit from playtime, whether that means a billiard battle with your best bud in your games room, or a dance party with your kids in their play room. Natural lighting can amplify the positive effects of playing by reducing eye strain and enhancing mood. In addition, Solatube Daylighting Systems block the harmful UV rays that can damage skin.

So let the light in and play all day.


  • Whether you’re playing pool or poker, natural light enhances your mood and energy level so you can play all day.
  • Natural light can reduce eye strain to make playtime more enjoyable.

Traditional skylights and older windows can transfer heat from the outside into your home. A Solatube Daylighting System provides a comfortable light level while preventing heat buildup in your games or play room. -Barney, Solatube Certified Installer
