The bathroom can be quite the chilly place thanks to its hard surfaces like tiles, stone and ceramic. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Nostra Homes and I have put our heads together to bring you five simple tips on how to winter-proof your bathroom.

 

Underfloor heating

 

For a lasting warming solution, underfloor heating is not only a sound investment but is now considered an affordable luxury for new Australian homes. It is one of most efficient ways to heat your home and because it transfers more natural radiant heat, its also one of the cleanest.

 

It is a comfortable natural heat that feels like heaven under foot and is a really easy addition for a new build. Because it can be installed just underneath tiles, it’s ideal for smaller spaces like bathrooms.

Hot water units

Having a hot water unit that’s going to allow for long hot showers at the end of a dreary day is another essential for the cooler months. There are plenty of electric, gas, continuous flow and solar hot water systems available.

 

Overhead heat lamps

If underfloor heating isn’t an option or you want to add heat from above, overhead lamps are the perfect answer. The benefit of installing this type of heater over others is two-fold: they heat the space quickly and efficiently, and their overhead position means they are out of the way.

 

These heaters are usually found as part of an all-in-one unit that combines an exhaust fan, lights and heater, so if you’re tight on space or budget this is a perfect option for you.

 

Heated towel rails

 

Heated towel rails not only add a touch of luxury, but will also dry your wet towels quickly and conveniently in those colder months. They are also moveable which means you can store them away during the warmer months. With a range of sizes and finishes to suit any bathroom design and budget, heated towel rails are an easy and affordable winter warmer accessory, and have become one of the must-have items in the Australian bathroom.
