How To Make Your Bathroom Cosier For 2016
In the colder temperatures and during long dark nights, chances are you’ll be spending more time relaxing at home rather than venturing out in bad weather. Follow our suggestions to warm up your bathroom in the colder months by adding some cosy touches.
Maximise the heat
Dragging yourself out of bed on a dark morning is even harder when you know you are heading to a chilly bathroom. Warm up your space by upgrading an old radiator to a heated towel rail. Not only will it keep your towels warm and ready to use, it also provides background heating for a cold bathroom. You don’t necessarily need to turn up the thermostat to ensure your home remains at a comfortable temperature. Keep the heat in by tackling drafts from doors and windows. Adding thick curtains and draught excluders are quick ways to prevent cold air getting in. For a longer term solution, consider investing in underfloor heating as the ultimate treat for bare feet on cold mornings.
Update your bath
A relaxing bubble bath is the best way to warm up after a long cold day. The winter months are the perfect time to invest in a bath for your bathroom, or update an existing suite to a new design to let you unwind in style this winter. Make a statement with an elegant freestanding bath, or recreate the tranquillity of the spa in your bathroom with an indulgent whirlpool bath.
Add soft textures
Update your bathroom towels for the New Year with some thicker and warmer styles. Replace a worn out bathmat with a soft new one for a quick cosy update. In bigger bathrooms, rugs placed over wooden or tiled floors help to warm up toes while adding a touch of luxury to your space. A fluffy bathrobe is a must to keep you feeling snug between the bathroom and bedroom.
Warm up your decor
If you are redecorating walls or flooring, opt for warm earth toned colours such as reds and oranges. While the minimalist look is becoming increasingly popular, having too many light colours in a big space can make a room feel cold. Make the bathroom a sanctuary in colder weather with at-home pampering sessions. Dimming the lights and lighting a few candles will help to set the scene for cosiness.
All that is left to add now is some cosy slippers and a hot drink, to keep you toasty until spring.
