My bathroom always gets uncomfortably cold during the winter months and I’m always dreading washing my face in the morning or walking barefoot after a nice shower. Because of this, I’m always looking for even little ways to warm up my bathroom. Here are a couple tips, if you have the same problem:
Perform a quick test to see if your windows are letting in drafts by holding up a piece of tissue around the perimeter—if it moves, you have an air leak. Caulk around the window to prevent future air flow.
Sometimes, even making your bathroom look warmer makes it feel warmer:
Believe it or not, the visual warmth of a room can help to make it actually feel warmer. Decorate with warmer tones to give the space an intimate feel. Red, orange and yellow tones along with warm wood finishes will all help to lend a cozy ambiance to the space.
If you don’t mind the investment, towel warmers are great when you step out into your cold bathroom:
If simply hanging your towel over the edge of the shower door isn’t enough, you may want to invest in a heated towel warmer. They are usually mounted to the wall, and will warm up your towel all the while that you are in the shower.
