Buyer’s Guide: Bathroom Heating

While style and functionality are incredibly important factors to consider when designing a bathroom, at the end of the day, comfort is just as critical. The key to creating a bathroom that is comfortable and enjoyable to use is to ensure that it has adequate heating. Stepping out of the bath or shower into icy cold air can be extremely unpleasant! Thankfully, there are several great solutions that you can adopt in order to keep your bathroom cosy.


RadiatorsThere are a huge number of radiators out there to fit the existing or expected style of any bathroom. And today, styles aren't just limited to traditional designs. If you’re fitting out a contemporary bathroom, a stylish designer radiator is the ideal heating solution. Available in striking designs and high sheen finishes, they are guaranteed to give your bathroom the wow factor. They are just as efficient as traditional designs which mean that as well as keeping your bathroom warm, they will also add a touch of elegance. A vertical radiator is also a fantastic way to enhance the spaciousness of smaller rooms, helping to draw the eye upwards and create a sense of openness.

Radiator ValvesTo ensure the style you choose is continued in the room there are a range of radiator valves in both modern and traditional styles. The thermostatic radiator valves even ensure that you can set your radiator to the exact temperature that you wish for your bathroom.

Many of today’s designs are also incredibly sleek and streamlined which makes them ideal for incorporating into smaller spaces.

Offering an invisible source of warmth, underfloor heating is a great option for those who are really short on space or want to keep their bathroom as minimalist and uncluttered as possible. Underfloor heating is also extremely energy efficient and while it may cost a little more to install, in the long run, it can save you a significant amount of money on your energy bills.

Just remember to think about the style, size and functionality of the space and choose a heating option that best suits the needs of your bathroom.
