How To Create The Ideal Bathroom

The bathroom should be a place where you can easily relax and unwind. After all, what is more relaxing than a warm bath?

The way your bathroom is designed can have a huge effect on how easy is it to chill out.

But with these few tips, you can create a relaxing and functional bathroom for you and your family.

Install underfloor heating 
Whether you have a tile, laminate or hardwood floor in your bathroom, the floor can get cold - especially if you are stepping out of the bath or shower.

To combat this, you should install underfloor heating. This will keep the floor pleasantly warm, and can even be used as the only heat source in the room - freeing up space that would have used by a radiator or other heater.

Underfloor heating can be easily controlled, so you can switch it on to come on while you are in the bath. When you get out, the floor will be warm - so you won't have to step onto a cold floor.

Get a heated towel rail 
A heated towel rail is a real luxury that will add to the comfort of your bathroom.

It can be used to dry damp towels, as well as keeping fresh towels warm, ideal if you need to dry yourself after a cold and rainy day.

What's more, the heated towel rail can act as a heat source for the rest of the room. If you have a small bathroom, the heat given off by the towel rail may be enough to warm if, removing the need for radiators or other heat sources.

Choose a large bath 
There are few things more relaxing than lying back in the bath, letting the water soothe your muscles after a hard day. However, if you have a cramped bath, this may not offer the relaxing haven you want.

When you are choosing your bathroom furniture, you should make space for a generous bathtub. This will allow you to stretch out fully and relax while you soak.

Use neutral colours 
The colour scheme can also help you relax. To create a relaxing bathroom, you should plan to use soothing, neutral colours.

Not only will these help you relax, but lighter colours will also reflect light, making your bathroom appear bigger than it is. That is a great help, particularly if you have a small bathroom and space is at a premium.

However, even if you have a small bathroom, it can become very relaxing by following these hints.
