A Warm Bathroom for Cold Winter Mornings
February 5, 2018
Waking up on a cold morning can be tough, and it is even harder when the first thing you do is head into a frigid cold bathroom. Cold tile under your feet and drafty windows can give you a chill and start your morning off on the wrong foot. Let’s look at some simple, and some more complex, things you can change or add in your bathroom to make mornings a little bit warmer.
There are some simple things you can do to help warm up your bathroom. First and foremost, you can make sure that your heat vents are set up properly and completely open. Oftentimes in smaller rooms we close the vents in the summer because the cold air conditioning becomes too much in a small space. If you head into winter and forget to make this minor change, it could leave you with a freezing cold bathroom in the winter months.
You’ll also want to make sure your windows are properly closed and not letting cold air into the house. If your windows are inefficient at keeping cold air out, you may consider replacing the window or adding another barrier to it to help keep the warm air in and the cold air out.
Bath Mats and Towel Warmers
If you’d made those minor adjustments involving your heat already but it still is not as warm as you’d like, there are some things you can add to your bathroom to help. By adding rugs and bathmats to your bathroom, you can prevent the shock of stepping onto freezing tiles in the morning. Another thing you can add to help you get warm in the morning is a towel warmer, so that when you get out of the shower you can bundle up in a pre-warmed towel.
Alternate Heating Sources
Likewise you can add an alternate heatsource, if your home’s heating unit isn’t cutting it. A small space heater can do the job in a pinch, but a more permanent solution may be more beneficial in the long run.
If you are in the market for a bathroom renovation and you want to incorporate some small luxuries in your previously cold bathroom, there are some great things you can add! First, adding heated floor tiles is an excellent place to start. Not only will the tiles keep your feet warm, the warmer air coming off the tiles can help keep the temperature in the room higher, as heat rises.
