Is there's anything worse than stepping out of a hot bath or shower into a freezing cold bathroom?

We certainly don’t think so!

Which is why we urge you to consider all choices with regards heating when planning your complete refurbishment so you need never make those mad dashes for the warmth of towel ever again.

Firstly we’d like to address all the options available to you, inclusive of the technical features and benefits.

With that in mind you typically have two main choices up for consideration when deliberating how best to heat your bathroom – heated towel warmers and underfloor heating.

Technically, when making such decisions, you need to bear in mind what thermal requirements your bathroom needs in order to make it ‘comfortably warm’. Doing so will indicate what solution is best for you and your needs, along with size requirements and other general specifications.

Heated towel warmers come in a variety of sizes which of course impacts the heating outage. Furthermore there is also a choice between whether you opt for a chrome or coloured heating system which in itself has its deliberations.

For example to heat a room that requires 3,000-3,500 BTU’s (British Thermal Units) you would need a 6ft chrome towel warmer whereas if you opt for a coloured warmer you would only need one at 4ft as they have 30-50% better heating output.

Another option would be underfloor heating, which is often recommended where tiled flooring has been installed.

Tiles, as modern and stylish as they are, have two shortcomings. One, they are generally slippy when wet and two, they are renowned for being cold. Although developments in manufacturing has subsided the slip-ability somewhat they are still yet to counter the coldness meaning, as a conductor of heat the best alternative at present is to install underfloor heating, a firm luxury favourite.

Ventilation is not a necessity when refurbishing a bathroom however is now a legal requirement in new builds. Although not a must have we always recommend installing some form of extraction unit when renovating a bathroom if only to preserve the work you are about to undertake.

Warm and wet environments can often cause damp which if untreated can easily turn to mould. Installing an extractor fan will overcome this protecting your new bathroom against these elements for many a year to come.
