Warming up a cold bathroom for winter

The cold, hard surfaces in your bathroom may be functional, but they're not something you'd want to cuddle up with on a chilly winter morning. With Jack Frost nipping at our heels, here are some tips to keep those shivers at bay and your bathroom cozy without turning up the thermostat.


Heated Ceramic Tiles
One of the most luxurious things you can do to make your bathroom toasty in chilly weather is invest in radiant-heat flooring. Although it may not be inexpensive, the floor will be toasty warm, you will not have to worry about falling, and water damage will no longer be a concern.


Heated towel bars and hooks
Heated towel bars add luxury to the bath, giving you a wonderful way to wrap up when you step out of a steamy shower. Go one step further and pick up a heated robe hook. These hooks are designed to attach to towel warmers.


Make it rain
You'll warm up super-fast under the blissful downpour from a rain shower. These oversized heads can be suspended from a wall-mounted arm, or top-mounted to the ceiling.


Heating things up
Invest in a bathtub and sinks that help retain heat. Natural materials like brass, copper, and soapstone will help to keep that hot water warmer longer while you soak away the winter blues.


Add a fireplace
Installing a fireplace isn't as labor-intensive as it used to be. Today there is a huge selection of designs that offer the perfect fit for any type or size bathroom straight out of the box, which add a touch of class and a whole lot of warmth to your space.
