It seems more and more areas around the U.S. are finally starting to see winter weather. Though delayed, most of us can expect below freezing temps, ice and snow that will leave us feeling quite chilly. Our homes will soon become our safe haven against the inclimate weather as most will opt to stay indoors to weather the storm. Warm showers however can quickly turn frigid as the bathroom tends to be one of the chilliest places during winter. Don’t let your bath suite turn into an ice box this winter. Here are three ways to help keep your bath toasty without any costly improvements or renovations.
3 Ways to Keep Your Bathroom Warm During the Colder Months
Towel Warmer – Keep yourself warm post shower with a towel warmer. Warmers are not only great for keeping your bath linens hot, but can even reduce mildew. For those who have both the space and budget, install a wall-mounted towel warmer in your bath space that you can use throughout the year. The Myson Wall 8-Bar Towel Warmer will bring luxury to your bathroom without the need for major electrical work (pre-wired electrical cord). For those with a tighter budget or cramped space, try the Conair Thermalux Towel Warmer. Compact in size, this mini towel warmer can hold two towels while keeping them heated for up to 20 minutes. Place this on your countertop of near your shower area for easy access. Just be careful not to spill water.
Bath Heater – Not everyone gets super cold in the bathroom during winter so it’s best to have something that is easily adjustable. A portable bath heater is the perfect option if you share a bathroom with multiple people or want quick heating without investing in something too permanent. The Holmes Heater Fan with Bathroom-Safe Plug uses digital thermostat controls for your desired comfort level. Equipped with a bathroom safe plug, pre-heat the heater with the timer before even stepping foot in the bathroom.
Plush Bath Mat – There is a reason why we wear slippers when it’s cold as they help protect our feet and keep them cozy. Introduce that same concept into your bathroom during the winter months with a plusher bath mat. The Ditali Bath Mat brings a functionality and fluffiness into your bathroom that really allows you to sink your feet. Place one next to your shower, near the sink and in front of the toilet to retain heat in your bathroom. At least you won’t have to walk on ice cold floors.
