Bathroom skylight upgrade

Jennifer decided to replace the old, plastic bubble skylight in her main bathroom because it had become discolored and began leaking. The new skylight was a major upgrade. It is solar powered and can be opened (ideal for humid bathrooms) with a remote control or the VELUX ACTIVE smartphone app; has energy-efficient, dual-paned loE3 glass; and features an integrated rain sensor that automatically closes the skylight when bad weather approaches.

While Jennifer loves the sky view her new skylight provides, she opted to add light-filtering, solar-powered shades — also remote/smartphone controlled. She can control the amount of sunlight coming into the room, and with the VELUX ACTIVE system, she can automate the skylight and shades to adjust as needed and keep her bathroom fresh and comfortable.
