Tips for creating a warm and cosy bathroom to get through winter


This article is by Lindsay Sinclair from Highgrove Bathrooms.

As the seasons change and the weather cools down, the bathroom tends to become the coldest room in the home that you dread entering. However, it’s generally the place you want to relax, wind down and warm up after a long day. Upgrading your bathroom can be as simple as adding and combining different elements to create the perfect cosy and inviting retreat.

Decorate with warm tones
When winter rolls around, it’s time to put away those bright, cool tones that remind you of summer and whip out any accessories and textiles in warmer hues. Think deeper blues or greens, and autumnal colours like reds, oranges and yellows. Even darker tones of beiges and neutrals work really well to make a space feel more welcoming on cold days.

Install heated towel racks
What could be worse than stepping out of the shower in the middle of winter and wrapping a cold towel around your body? Install heated towel racks for that added touch of luxury in your daily routine – say goodbye to cold towels this season! Not only will they keep you nice and toasty, but the heat will keep the bacteria at bay, ensuring a clear environment. Highgrove Bathrooms’ new Branch Heated Towel Racks create both a visual statement while adding practicality to your bathroom routine. 6p7a6884-branch-matte-black-aloneIncorporate plush textiles
Rugs aren’t just for the living room. Adding textiles is a great way to make any space feel much warmer, plus soft rugs will keep your feet well off the cold tiles. In the bathroom, smaller floor rugs can be incorporated by the vanity or bathtub, and anywhere you regularly stand for extended periods of time.

Check your windows
While windows are amazing for letting in natural light so you can feel the sunshine in cooler months, they can also be letting in that winter chill and unwanted cold drafts of wind. If your bathroom is feeling too cold for comfort even with the windows closed, make sure to check for air leaks around the frame. Leave a tissue at your window to see if it moves to find where the problem may be.
