Ensuring your bathroom is well illuminated is essential for not only creating an inviting atmosphere, but needs to be bright enough so you can easily see what you are doing when it comes to getting ready on those busy weekday mornings. Heating is also an essential part of your bathroom too, especially throughout the winter months and nobody wants to be getting ready in the cold!
Lighting in the bathroom needs to be strongest where you need it the most, so for example around the mirror area where you shave or apply your make-up. Installing an illuminated bathroom mirror is a great way to include lighting where you need it the most. The main ceiling lighting is used for all-over illumination and to add atmosphere to the bathroom. Spot lights are a popular choice for modern bathrooms and some have the option of pointing them at different angles, which helps to highlight the main areas in the bathroom.
Ensuring your bathroom is well heated will create a very inviting feel and there’s nothing worse than standing and shivering waiting for the shower to warm up. Heating your bathroom helps to reduce the humidity by evaporating the moisture; this is turn will help to prevent the growth of mould.
Designer radiators are available in a wide range of styles, sizes and finishes and are a great way to add a touch of contemporary style to your bathroom. Designer radiators are designed to work off your central heating system so your bathroom won’t feel as warm when the heating is turned off.
Practical heated towel rails
Heated towel rails are a very popular choice for those who are refurbishing or updating the look of their bathroom and they are available in a fantastic choice of sizes, designs and finishes so you can easily create a coordinating look. A heated towel rail is ideal for providing you with warm, cosy towels and will help to enhance the look and feel of your bathroom. Heated towel rails can work off the central heating system or alternatively there are electric versions available, which are ideal for drying towels when the central heating is turned off.
Luxurious underfloor heating
Nothing feels better than stepping onto a warm bathroom floor, especially when it’s freezing outside. Underfloor heating also provides heat throughout the rest of the bathroom; there are two main types of underfloor heating available; water flowing through pipes, which works off your central heating system or from electrical heating cables. Underfloor heating is well worth investing in if you have the budget.
