Preparing Your Bath for Winter

What do you do to prepare your bathroom? Many homeowners don’t think anything is necessary, but the fact of the matter is that a few small changes going can make a huge difference in your comfort and safety. Here are a few examples:

Investing in a towel warmer. Imagine being able to banish the post-bath shivers in moments with a heated towel or a warmed change of clothes. What’s not to love?

Getting soft, fuzzy bathmats. Most people have bathmats purely for the sake of function, but you’ll want something warm and soft under your feet when you’re stepping out of the tub on a frigid day.

Ensuring you’re prepared for a potential pipe freeze. “Better safe than sorry” is the mantra here! Make sure your home is properly insulated and you know where the water shut-off is.

Updating your bathroom. For many people, winter can be a bit depressing. This is a great chance for you to update your bathroom with cheery décor, warmer lighting, and other accessories (plush bathrobes, anyone?) that make your life just a little better. You may even consider renovating the space so that it better meets your needs year-round.
