After a nice hot shower, it’s time for a towel that is both soft and absorbent. High quality Turkish cotton towels offer just such an experience. Moreover, their chic appearance elevates the bathroom, adding a spa-inspired vibe that is very welcome on cold and dark mornings. Replacing your towels also makes it easy to update the bathroom with today’s trending colors and patterns. If you need more options for towel storage, consider adding some robe hooks to your bathroom walls.
Spring is the time of renewal, and you can get a jump-start on refreshing your bathroom by scheduling the installation of a glass shower door, enclosure, or screen. In fact, replacing a shower curtain or old door with pristine new glass is an effective way to give the whole room a glow-up. Even if you have a tub/shower combination rather than a stand-alone shower area, there are several appealing options:
• In-line Door and Panel – A swinging door beside a fixed glass panel is an attractive configuration as long as there is plenty of clearance for the door to swing open into the bathroom. Double swinging doors – French doors – are another variation that some homeowners prefer.
• Rolling “Barn Style” Shower Door System – A rolling shower door can be a nice alternative in a small bathroom because it requires no more space than a curtain. You can choose a door beside a stationary panel or dual rolling doors. These door systems are frameless.
• Bypass Doors – At a less expensive price point, you have semi-frameless or framed bypass doors. On these units both doors slide along metal tracks, so they are also space-friendly.
• Screen – A shower screen is a solitary glass panel. Both fixed and hinged screens are available, and they should be paired with adequate waterproofing around the shower area.
Switching to a clear glass shower makes any bathroom seem bigger and more luxuriant.
Stepping out of the shower onto a warm floor is also very appealing in the winter. Better Homes and Gardens offers key points to keep in mind when considering this upgrade. These include:
• Electric radiant floor heating is typically cheaper up front but more costly over time, whereas hydronic radiant floor heating is generally a bit spendier to install but less costly over time.
• A DIYer with moderate skill level may be able to undertake this project, but others should call in a professional.
• “Kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms” are some of the best spaces for heated floors.
• Heated floors can be a more cost-efficient way of heating a home, and they are good for reducing mold risks.
Bring in items from nature or holiday themed pieces to give your bathroom winter flair. Possibilities include:
• Vases filled with pine or holly boughs
• Bowls of pine cones
• A potted pine tree with lights and ornaments
• Cinnamon essential oil in a diffuser
• Seasonal or Christmas themed hand towels
Have fun decorating your bathroom for winter and then replace the items with Spring themed alternatives when the time comes!
