As the autumnal equinox approaches, temperatures will soon start dropping and fall and winter coats will need to be brought out of the closet. Soon, you'll be heating up your car before your morning commute and drinking mugs of hot coffee rather than sipping iced lattes. But for all the excitement of changing leaves and brisk breezes, there's one part of the cold weather just about everyone in the world hates - having to step out of a hot shower into a chilly bathroom.
We all know the feeling. While you may consider suffering through this to be one of the tragedies of the human condition, there is a solution. Warm up your bathroom with a variety of toasty design elements to keep yourself comfy through the worst of fall and winter weather. Why not start redecorating now? It's never too early to get a head start on the first freeze!
1. Towel warmers. When you do step out of the steaming shower, what's the first thing you reach for? The comfort of your towel, which more often than not is about as cold and stiff as the bathroom floor. Solve this problem with a towel warmer. This stylish bar can be mounted anywhere in your bathroom and keeps your towels heated for when you need them.
2. Radiant floor heating. The bathroom floor is unquestionably the worst part of chilly mornings. We can only cover so much of that tile with rug, and stepping on a cold patch gives a jolting shock to the system. Installing radiant floor heating in your bathroom won't only heat you underfoot, but warm the entire room using convection currents. Energy-efficient electrical heat like this is great for any room in your house, but essential for wintry bathrooms.
3. Mirror defoggers. The one downside to a steamy shower - it takes forever for the mirror to clear off. Eliminate this problem with mirror defoggers. These use radiant heat spread evenly across the glass' surface to clear it of steamy fog.
4. Radiant heating panels. Is your bathroom in need of a little art and warmth? The infrared radiant heating panels produced by WarmlyYours combine the best of both worlds, giving you and bathroom guests an attractive glass design that also keeps the area toasty.
