I cut a piece of styrofoam insulation (1/2" thick, white on one side, aluminum on the other) and held it up against the underside of the skylight with a couple of tension rods (spring tension curtain rods). We like it dark for sleeping. Perhaps a translucent panel would reduce but not eliminate the light?

A nice blue paint would work. Rustoleum X2

If the bottom (inside) panel is flat, window tint film should work. You can get it in various levels of light blocking. If the panel is curved I'm not sure you can apply tint film smoothly. In that case a paint-on or spray-on product would likely work best. Start with light coats & add more to get the amount of light blocking desired.

Many many years ago window tint was spray on, not film.

Scube... if you do that you know you'll be required to somehow install a baptismal pool in your bathroom!

In my Hurricane, I removed the inner sky light. Took measurements of the interior area and cut out a piece of 1/8" gatorboard that filled the area. Then reinstalled the inner sky light. It is invisible to the naked eye, keeps the light out and more importantly cuts down on the heat in the bathroom.

I just velcroed a reflectix panel on the inside of the skylight. Occasionally it will drop down on a person showering. Just a minor inconvenience. I never thought about that stained glass look. Hallelujah!!

I used paint on the outside surface. It can't be any easier than that.

That may work instead of inside the unit
