The following 10 small changes will make your bathroom warmer in the cold winter


1. Sauna

A cold shower can be one way to stay awake when you wake up in the mornings, but if you’re looking for a gentler experience, consider installing a steam generator for a bathroom with a shower. .


This rather large sauna room designed by ID Studio Interiors has a domed tiled ceiling with copper accessories.

2. Radiant floor heating

Walking barefoot on cold bricks is never a pleasant way to start a new winter day. Make your morning routine more comfortable by installing a radiant floor heating system.


McNamee Construction installed radiant heaters under the white epoxy floor in this San Francisco bathroom.

3. Towel warmer


If you want to keep your towels fragrant, consider adding a towel heater. You can use the plugged-in or hardwire version, like the one seen in the photo by Valley Design Center.

4. Bath keeps heat

A long soak in the bath can help you beat the chilly winter breeze. Consider choosing a bathtub made from a thermostatic material, such as copper, brass, volcanic limestone or soapy stone, to keep the bath water warm.

5. Warm carpet

When you step out of the bath or shower, having a warm rug to put your foot on will make you feel like you are experiencing a luxurious service in the spa.

6. Anti-steam mirror

If your goal is to keep your bathroom warm and steam-free during the winter months, you might want to install fog-proof mirrors on the wall or medicine cabinet.


Carnemark Design + Build has installed an LED heated, steam-proof mirror-mounted medicine cabinet in this bathroom.

7. Window

Drapery your bathroom window will not only bring privacy and make the space look more sophisticated, it also helps keep the bathroom warm.


Laura Roberts Design has installed floor-to-ceiling pleated curtains in this master bathroom.

8. Take robes and towels easily


When getting out of the bath or shower, the last thing you want to do is look for a towel or gown. Attach more towel hanger and maybe a ladder, like in this bathroom to make sure the towel or robe is never out of reach.

9. Heater

If you really want to enhance the warmth in your bathroom, nothing can beat the feeling that a fireplace can give.


This Meadowlark Design + Build bathroom has a soaking tub located next to a gas fireplace on either side – placed on the wall between the master bathroom and the master bedroom.

10. Dry sauna

If you have the space and budget for it, consider installing a traditional sauna to dispel the winter cold.
