4 Tips for Making a Bathroom More Comfortable

Bathrooms are usually the smallest rooms in the home but that doesn’t mean they need to be uncomfortable. With a few additions and improvements, you can turn a bland and boring bathroom into a place where you can actually enjoy a bath or shower in a comfortable environment. Most bathroom renovations involve making subtle design changes, but there are other things that can be done to make this small but important part of your home not just more aesthetically appealing but also a more enjoyable place to be. With that said, follow these four tips and you can make your bathroom feel more spacious, airy, and cosy.

1. Install a Towel Radiator

Even if your home has a central heating system, the hot air flowing into the bathroom can feel uncomfortable in comparison to the gentle warmth of a radiator. Towel radiators are the perfect heating solutions for bathrooms because they serve as both a rack for your towels and a subtle source of heat that usually feels better than hot air being driven through a central heating system. However, you can also opt for dual fuel towel radiators if you want the capability to integrate the rack radiator with your central heating system so that it can function based on the home’s thermostat.

2. Improve the Ventilation System

Once you’ve taken care of the heating aspect, airflow is the next concern that should be addressed to keep the air from becoming too steamy and humid during showers. A strong exhaust fan and an inlet for passive air intake are important to prevent excessive heat and moisture build-up. Without good ventilation, a bathroom can feel a lot like a sauna during an extended hot shower and can result in a build-up of unhealthy mould.

3. Lay a Soft Rug or Mat

A cold, slippery, hard bathroom floor is never going to feel as good as a smooth, furry floor rug or a soft and spongy mat. Plus laying down a rug or mat will help extend the life of the flooring and tub sealants, as any excess water is absorbed instead of slowing soaking. Of course, having something under your feet will also help minimise the chances of slipping and falling.

4. Switch to a Soft Toilet Seat

A cold, hard toilet seat just can’t compete with some of the more deluxe seats that are available. Additionally, softer seats are usually easier to clean. While this is largely a matter of preference, as some people prefer hard seats, it’s certainly an option worth trying if you haven’t owned one before.

Upgrade the Sink, Cabinets, and Mirrors

Finally, while you’re taking care of all the comfort-related issues above, why not also revamp the room aesthetically and functionally with a new sink, mirror, and cabinet set up? This is a project that most people can do themselves with basic tools, and purchasing the materials is relatively inexpensive in comparison to other home renovation projects. After you’ve taken all of the steps mentioned in this guide, your bathroom should look and feel brand new in the best way.
