Tips For Creating A Comfortable Bathroom

by Clinton Stone

Many homeowners think of their bathrooms as a functional space. It's where they shower, brush their teeth, apply their makeup and do everything else that they need to do to get ready for and to end each day. They don't really put too much thought into beautifying the space and making it comfortable. However, when you think about it, that doesn't make much sense. Being that the bathroom is a space where so much time is spent, wouldn't it be nice if it were comfy and cozy?

If you are interested in making your bathroom a more comfortable and enjoyable space to get ready, here's a look at some of the ways that you can up the comfort factor.

Install Radiant Floor Heat

How nice would it be to step out of the shower onto a warm floor? By installing radiant floor heat, you can do just that.

With this type of heating, tubes of hot water or electric wires are placed underneath the flooring, radiating heat underneath your feet. Not only is this a great way to increase the comfort of your bathroom, but it's also a great way to improve the air quality, as it eliminates the need for heating ducts, which tend to put allergens in the air as the heat passes through them.

New Shower Surround

Trade in that old, tired and dated shower surround for something new, and while you're at it, have a seat and a new shower head installed. Imagine how relaxing it will be sitting down while the warm water from a brand new rain shower head pours over you while you're surrounded by a beautiful new shower surround. Talk about a great way to start or and any day.

A New Vanity

Is your current vanity cluttered? Do you find it difficult to get ready because you can't find anything you're looking for, or because there just simply isn't enough space? If so, consider having a new vanity installed in your bathroom. A piece that offers plenty of counter space is ideal, and don't forget the aesthetic value, too. A new vanity can instantly give your bathroom a completely new look and make your bathroom a more comfortable space.

Updated Lighting

Good lighting is key to making your bathroom a functional space. The right lighting will make getting ready for your day and preparing for bed a lot easier. Have a few different light sources installed. Overhead lighting placed above the vanity and the shower will make applying makeup, shaving and showering a lot easier, and a decorative chandelier hung in the center of the bathroom will dress the space up.  

 With these tips, your bathroom will be a space that you will truly enjoy spending time in.
