Warm up your bathroom this winter

Warm up your bathroom this winter

If you cringe every time your feet hit the ice cold bathroom tiles, don’t worry – we feel your pain. Here are some great ways to warm up your bathroom.

Waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom is something we all dread. Bathrooms are cold, especially in the winter . . . need we say more?

To help find a solution to the problem, we caught up with Bathroom Butler’s Joseph Throssell who shares some great ideas on how to heat up your bathroom this winter:

Organic elements

Adding organic elements into a bathroom can make your space feel warm and soulful.

However, it is important not to over-saturate a small bathroom with too many finishes.

According to Throssell, the golden rule is to never add more than three organic elements in a bathroom.

An ideal organic element is a bamboo plant that does not require as much maintenance during the chilly season.

Brrr . . . it’s cold outside

Stepping out of the shower on those chilly mornings and cool winter evenings is not something most of us look forward to. Get yourself some new big fluffy towels to wrap around yourself after your steamy hot bath or shower. As an added bonus, why not get your hands on some heated towel rails?

Cosy up your bathroom

Apart from the chill of just getting out of the shower or bath, stepping onto a cold tile with your bare feet makes the experience just that much worse. Show your feet some love with a cozy rug. Remember: the thicker the thread, the cozier the rug. Use warm colours as suggested by the Pantone 2018 Winter colour palette to ‘heat’ up the bathroom.

Mix materials

Throssell favours dark hues, greens and bonze as popular materials for the bathroom this winter.

“Add handmade tiles, weathered bronze accents or Matt Black bathroom accessories for a wonderfully striking organic feel,” says Throssell.

“Decorating and designing a bathroom is a time to be creative and inventive, but first one must make sure that a bathroom is functional. Although, the ergonomics are imperative when designing a bathroom space, where you draw inspiration from is equally as important.”
