With its hard surfaces of tile, stone and ceramic, the bathroom can be one of the coldest rooms in the house but, with a few clever tricks, it really doesn’t have to be that way. Recently, our lovely friends at Reece shared their top five tips on how to create a more inviting bathroom this autumn and winter.
- Heat it up
Heated towel rails are a quick and easy way to add some luxury to your bathroom and will instantly warm up your space. Enjoy the feeling of wrapping up in a fluffy, warm towel after a steamy shower or bath. Heated towel rails are also an excellent space saver for storing your towels and add to the aesthetics of your bathroom too. There are a wide range of styles available to suit your bathroom design and practical requirements, including traditional ladders, swivel, mobile, freestanding and individual rails.
- Add warmth underfoot
If you’re looking for a little warmth underfoot then underfloor heating is a clever solution and such a luxury on cold winter mornings. Because heat rises, underfloor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat your home and is a great long-term investment. Advancements in technology mean underfloor heating systems can now be installed in the concrete slab of a new build and can be retrofit too.
- Rug up
Bath mats or rugs are an easy and cost effective way to keep your feet warm in the bathroom. Place them in front of the sink, toilet and shower to keep your feet warm. Opt for a warm colour or stylish pattern to add to your bathroom design.
- Let natural light in
Windows, skylights and a clear glass shower surround make the most of natural light and on a sunny day can add extra warmth. Make sure your windows are air-tight to avoid letting cold air into the bathroom – even the smallest crack can result in the loss of warm air.
- Colour your walls
A splash of colour can instantly add a sense of warmth to your bathroom on a chilly morning. Warm tones such as red, orange and yellow can help create a cosy ambience in a space.
