You can buy ventilation fans, all my bathrooms have one, but of course I ensured they have additional ventilation (either windows or slits in the door) as unless you buy the really powerful ones, mould and mildew will form pretty quickly.

this is like some hotel toilet design where they have ventilation fan and then the 24/7 air conditioning to make the toilet dry. but personally, toilet without windows are not really recommended.

try to work with your ID if you can work on ventilation fan via false ceiling (heard some did this before. downside though is the sound of the fan humming....

hope you could share on your final solution as well. thank you.

A toilet without window or mechanical venting (ie extractor or ventilation fan) would not have passed TOP. Your toilet probably has some type of mechanical ventilation. Look carefully for venting slates in the toilet. If really don't have, complain to BCA.

my master bathroom has no window but we made lourve windows above the door, added a wall fan and a ventilating fan on the false ceiling that is vented to the outside. Moved in for 2 months already still ok.

Oic.. Tks alot.. Will chk it up first.. Update u all once I ve a clearer pic

As long as you have a false ceiling, it is quite easy to install a ceiling exhaust fan. My friend has a toilet in the middle of his house (ie without windows). I find that it stint when someone does big business inside because the exhaust fan is not powerful enough.

When you install the exhaust fan, you may want to look for something that is more powerful.

Cheers!
