Design Tip of the Week (9.21.09) ~ Heat up your bathroom

Create a spa-like feel to your bathroom with two different heating elements that will make you melt into coziness.

A towel warmer! Yes, think about a nice toasty warm towel to wrap yourself in on a cold day. I hate getting out of the shower because I do not like to be cold, at this bathroom accessory didn't take too much to sell me on. Also, they are a great mechanism for trendy towel storage. They come in several different designs and you can get them from many different distributers (and different price points). Here are some examples from Amba. Keep in mind that you can find towel warmers that are less modern, they come in bronze and some have a wrought iron look.

Another great way to warm up the bathroom is with a heated floor. If you are planning on re-tiling anytime soon, consider this nice addition. Heating elements can be placed under tile, stone and hardwood flooring AND you can even heat the floor in your shower! You would have no idea if a floor had a heating element by look, only by touch. TIP: There are many different options out there, so do your homework.
