As we all know, utility companies are brewing a price increase by at least 5-6% this coming year. However, the good witches have come up with some ideas to keep your bathroom warm this winter without increasing your electric bill. Bathrooms often seem cold, especially when stepping out from a warm shower. Follow these tips and tricks for bathroom remodeling, and enjoy the treat of a utility bill that won’t break the bank.
Keep Warm with a Larger Showerhead
Install a larger showerhead and a towel warmer. A wider showerhead covers more of your body and keeps you warm while showering. The extra warmth can also help heat up the room. Install luxury shower features. Imagine looking forward to a steam shower on a cold winter day or having body jets to give you a warm massage in all the right places. Keep within reach a warm towel or bathrobe, and it won’t be necessary to increase the heat in the bathroom.
Include Frightfully Toasty Floors in Your Next Bathroom Remodeling Project
Heated floors are well worth the cost over time. Heat from the floor rises and warms the entire room. A tiled floor will stay warm long after the heat is turned off. You can also heat the floor and room by installing a radiator in the vanity’s toe kick, which is less expensive. For a quick and easy solution, cover the bare floors with an area rug, which will keep the cold from rising and keep the room temperature higher. Use warm colors to make the space feel even warmer.
Add Brightness and Warmth to Your Bathroom
Skylights are a great addition to a bathroom to bring in the sunlight to warm up your bathroom. If your bathroom has a window, seal it with new caulk or weatherstrip to keep the cold air out and the warm air in. What about a fireplace? Why not! There are so many options for fireplaces these days — it is easy to install an electric one to give you heat and make you feel cozy.
These are a few adjustments you can make to chase the goblins out of your bathroom and reduce your utility bill.
