Are you planning to remodel your bathroom but want to do a bit more than add a fresh coat of paint to the walls? Here are some ideas that can add some luxury to this room of your house.
Do you dread stepping out of your shower because you need to stand on the cold tiles? Know that it doesn't have to be this way. When remodeling your bathroom with new flooring, take the extra step to add heated floors to the bathroom. Anyone can retrofit a bathroom with this luxurious feature, since the heat is added through heating cables that are placed under the floor and allow the heat to radiate upward. No need to install a boiler and hot water pipes to get the same effect.
Consider connecting the floor heating elements to a timer so that you can turn the heat on before you step into the shower. It will then shut down automatically by the time you are done getting ready for the day.
Heated Towel Rack
Since you are in the process of adding heat to your bathroom, consider adding heated towel racks. This will be another nice perk of taking a shower, since you can immediately wrap yourself in a warm towel without having to walk all the way to the laundry room to get it out of the dryer.
A heated towel rack can be installed on the wall of your bathroom where your normal towel rack would be but connected to an electronic heating element to provide the heat. It's out of the way, safe, and a convenient way to add luxury.
Why take a regular shower when you can take a steam shower? This will require having a shower door that goes all the way up the ceiling so that it forms a seal when the door is closed. The small steam generator can be installed by placing a small device in the wall that allows the steam to come into the shower through a small hole. You'll find yourself enjoying showers that feel like you are in a personal sauna.
Don't have floor-to-ceiling shower doors in the plans? Then spoil yourself with a whirlpool bathtub. Installing a new tub with jets will make taking a bath seem like a luxury. Don't worry about not having the space, since there are even small whirlpool tubs that can provide this type of luxury.
