Interior windows


My house has two wash/bath rooms that has no window. This means that I have to turn on the light even during the day. However one of the walls of the wash room is the hall way which is bright during the day. I was thinking of making an interior window (open or fixed) to let the light in from the hall way. I may not have seen enough houses. But so far I have not seen people using interior windows for lighting up inside wash room or bath room. Is this a stupid idea or there is actual building code against it. I can make wide and shot window close to the ceiling so that you do feel that you are taking a bath in front of an open window.

Interior windows


we have a window in out bathroom. if you are standing in the tub looking at the faucet, to your left at your head level there is the window. a sliding two window thing. its nice to air it out but it gets cold. already had to put the storm window on for winter. we have a blind covering the window and also along the window and some of the wall have a smaller cut tub/shower curtain. its private. i would say either way would work. but this IS my first post.

If you have a light source you can tap into, go ahead. As with any opening in a wall, structure it according to the load.
