Baby, it’s cold outside ..

Posted on November 17 2012, Bathroom Planning

It’s a chilly winter’s morning, and you are up early getting ready for the day ahead…

Scenario A
You enter your bathroom making sure you have a pair of slippers on as you know as you know from experience how unpleasant it is stepping on a freezing cold floor.  But if you are having a shower you are unable to avoid stepping on the tiled floor at some stage.  You are in and out of the bathroom as fast as possible and may even hop back into bed for a few minutes to warm up again.
Scenario B

When having your bathroom updated you have taken the advice of the designer at your local bathroom showroom and you have opted for underfloor heating.  So you stroll into your bathroom barefoot knowing the room will be warm, and you can confidently go barefoot as you tread on the toasty warm floor.

If you have cats you will find they make their way to the warmest area in your home …

Many bathrooms in the UK are small and underfloor heating saves you valuable radiator space on a wall as well as costing you less to run than a traditional radiator.  Our designers incorporate in their design a towel warmer on the wall where grabbing your towel is easy after a bath or shower.

Our designers also make recommendations on the size or shape of the towel warmer depending on how many people will be using the bathroom.

Underfloor heating does need to be installed by a specialist, so you need to select your installer with care.
