Shower Skylight Cover

i am sure this has come up before, but i cannot find it anywhere. we have one of those odd shape (5 sided) skylights over the shower, it is nice except right across from the bed, and boy does it let the light shine in right towards where we sleep. i have seen those covers for the standard square vents and even some fit the rectangular skylights, but i have been unable to find for this shape, unless i have DW make something...has anyone seen anything for these skylights.

I installed a new style expansion shower bar very near the ceiling over the shower door. When a large bath towel is hanging over it, most/much of the direct light from skylight to our bed is blocked. Works great for another bar for wet towels also.

The shower rod has not moved or hinted it was loosening in over 5000 miles of travel.

My wife and I fashioned some solar windshield shades out of Refletix which we purchased at Lowe's. They came out great. We had some left over so I pressed the piece tightly into the skylight vent and traces around the perimeter with a china marker and then cut it along that marked line. It was a perfect fit! Not only have we succeeded in blocking out the light but also the heat from the sun! It was easy to do, easy to stow, and fairly inexpensive. I'm sure you could do likewise and be satisfied.

I cut a 3" thick peice of foam rubber to fit tightly in the hole. It not only keeps the sun out but it helps keep the heat in in the winter.

I made a cover out of 1/4" bubble wrap with silver on both sides. Can be found at Lowes, Home Depot, etc.

I did the same thing last week. Made a serious difference.
