Natural Sunlight via a Solar Tube Enhances Your Bathroom Remodel
The image on the left shows the same bathroom before and after the installation of a Solar Tube.
A solar tube is a form of very narrow skylight that brings in an impressive amount of sun light.
Natural light enhances the feel of any room and solar tubes allow you to bring in that light in a very small surface area.
As you can see from the bathroom images the effect of the natural light is to strongly enhance the finishing of everything in the room, from the inside of a bamboo curtain (ironic, isn’t it) to the look of the tile on the outside of the bathtub, to the color of the pain on the walls and ceiling.
As the image below shows, a solar tube is a fairly small round tube (generally 12 inches across) where light enters through a lens that is above the roof, travels down a metal tube or duct that reflects the light around the inside of the tube until it enter through the glass at the bottom lighting up the room.
The amount of light that comes through into the room is much more than if a simple skylight of the same size was installed. This is due to the way the light bounces around inside the solar tube before it enters the room.
For most homes with standard attics, you can install one (parts and labor) for about $400 to $500.
