Warm up your bathroom...

For most people the bathroom is a place for warmth and relaxation, yet with winter seeping out the heat from every corner of the home, its important to ensure you are completely ready for the winter months. We naturally make our living rooms and lounges a place of cozy warmth and hibernation during the colder times of the year, but rarely think about improving the heat retention in our bathroom spaces. Cold floor tiles will chill the warmth right out of your feet, however its not difficult to help get your bathroom to raise your body temperature.

Add a comfy rug. A bath mat does not have to be a little rectangle. Add a large luxurious rug to enjoy underfoot during the winter; the rich colours will warm up the look of the room as well. Be sure to add a rug pad or rug tape that will grip the floor underneath any bathroom rug to prevent slips. Take a different approach to lighting. We tend to think there is a certain type of characterless light we need to choose for bathrooms, open your mind and browse the type of lighting you would usually associate with a dining room to give an added sense of class and luxury.

Invest in a bathtub that helps retain heat. Materials like copper or brass retain heat and will help to keep that hot bathwater warm, Invest in a statement piece such as a Stone freestanding bath. You may have the common misconception that a stone bath may not be comfortable, but because they're smooth to the touch, stone baths are a real delight to your skin, allowing you to easily slide in and enjoy a deeply immersed warm bath. Freestanding baths are a statement piece, instantly attracting your eye with the uniqueness and charm of a character defining bathroom luxury. It's very difficult to get more luxurious than a stone bath, bringing a distinctive edge to the bathroom and providing a focal point that will impress anyone who visits. Stone freestanding baths can provide the basis for the rest of your bathroom to be designed around, whether you're going for a completely modern look or matching the natural look with stone basins. Making the best use of space is the most important consideration when choosing a bath. Freestanding baths need large bathrooms with plenty of room to walk around. As with many home décor a lot may depend on budget, but remember stone products are a life investment and some manufacturers even offer services in which they tidy up warn looking baths to give them a fresh new look.
