Let’s raise the temperature this winter with some toastie tips!
Who hates the middle of the night trips to the bathroom with those cold tiles under your feet? Or you stay under the warm shower that extra five minutes as it’s too cold to get out? It’s time to raise the temperature in your bathroom with these helpful ideas.
Add a cosy rug, the shaggy little rectangle just not cutting it? Think big and enjoy the warmth from an Oriental rug in rich colours. Always add a rug pad or tape that’ll grip the floor underneath the rug to prevent slips.
Consider heated floors and towel rails. If you’re planning a renovation or in the planning of a new build, add the luxury of heated floors to your bathroom. Out of your budget? Install bathroom-safe heater/s that you can turn on before your bath/shower. Warm up your towels with heated towel rails. What a wonderful way to wrap yourself up after stepping out of the shower. Ensure you use a licenced professional to install as yours and your family’s safety is of upmost importance.
Blend natural materials. Include wooden counters or cabinetry topped with soapstone sinks to bring warmth to a bathroom space. Avoid concrete counter tops in this wet area. Incorporate antiques converted for vanity or storage. Evoke a relaxing ambience with pieces collected from markets or pieces handed down in your family.
Let the light in. Make the most of natural light with windows, skylights and a clear glass shower surround. Approach your lighting with a twist. Feature pendant lighting isn’t just limited to dining, living, entries and the likes, incorporate a focal point with stunning piece or pieces to create a glowing atmosphere in your bathroom.
Add a fireplace. This is what all dreams are made of! How luxurious a bathroom feature of a fireplace? Once day, when you win the lottery.
Give you bathroom a little extra TLC to be ready for winter this season.
