How to keep your bathroom warm in winter
We all know the winter dread of getting ready in the morning in a cold bathroom. Whether it’s stepping out of the shower onto a freezing floor or shivering while shaving, it’s very true that the bathroom is the first room to cool down when the colder months hit.
So, you may be wondering how to keep your bathroom warm in winter to make it as cosy and comfortable as possible. Let’s take a look at some tips.
6 Ways to Keep Your Bathroom Warm in Winter
Be patient and pre-heat
The best thing you can do is to actually give your heating system time to kick in and warm the room up. Set your boiler to switch on before you wake up to ensure your bathroom is as cosy as it can be for maximum comfort and warmth. This bit of pre-planning and patience can make a real difference to the temperature of your bathroom.
Install heated towel rails
Whether you have a radiator in your bathroom or not, a heated towel rail is an ever-popular addition for any bathroom – and something that we can provide here at Ebberns Bathrooms. Serving a dual purpose, they not only help raise the temperature of your bathroom, but they also dry off your towels quickly and conveniently. And we all know there’s nothing better than bundling up in a toasty towel after your morning shower.
Get smart with underfloor heating
Radiators can only go so far to heat your bathroom. If you want to get complete coverage, opting for underfloor heating is a modern and stylish solution that suits almost any bathroom. Not only do these systems spread the heat evenly across the space, they also provide warmth underfoot for that extra bit of comfort. Here at Ebberns, we can install full underfloor heating systems for bathrooms.
Create some ambience
Sometimes just creating the appearance of warmth can make you ‘feel’ warmer, even if the internal temperature hasn’t actually changed. Warm lighting and burning candles can help to create a snug atmosphere that helps you to feel less chilly in the mornings – try out this trick and see if it works for you.
Rugs and mats are a winner
Generally, carpets and rugs are discouraged in bathrooms due to hygiene concerns. However, popping down a small rug or mat next to the shower or by the sink can give you a fluffy place to sink your feet into when getting out the shower or brushing your teeth – giving you that extra bit of comfort in the key places you need it most. Just remember to wash the rug or mat regularly for hygiene purposes.
Green it up
Plants are known for their soothing effect, and may also help to increase the humidity, and therefore warmth, of a bathroom by releasing moisture. Try popping a few plants in your bathroom to help raise the temperature and to create a more tranquil mood.
