When you have a bathroom that's been built in the basement of your home, it can be tough to make sure that it stays warm throughout the year due to the lower level of your home getting quite cold during the colder months. If you're looking for ways to make the bathroom feel warmer and more enjoyable to use, consider the following projects that can be incorporated with remodeling and that can help make your bathroom much warmer.
Consider if a New Window Is Possible
An easy way to warm up your bathroom is to consider having a new window installed. While the windows will likely need to be installed higher up for a basement bathroom, you can likely enjoy a big improvement in how warm the temperature is in the bathroom when some sunlight is brought in.
With more light, it should be much easier to enjoy warmer temperatures inside the bathroom without bringing any more artificial heating.
Have a Towel Warmer Installed
When you're using the bathroom during the colder part of the year, it makes sense to have a way to enjoy warm towels. By having a towel warmer installed, you can have a more modern touch in your bathroom and can enjoy having warm towels anytime you need them.
With how little electricity most towel warmers use, this can be an affordable way to give your bathroom a big upgrade and enjoy having towels that are warm and ready to use after hopping out of the shower or bath on a cold day.
Invest in a Modern Water Heater
Waiting a long time for water to warm up can be frustrating, making it a good idea to spend the money on getting a modern water heater instead. Instead of struggling with having the water be warm enough when using the shower or washing your hands, it makes sense to have the water heater installed if your current one isn't as warm as you may like.
Not only can modern water heaters consume a lot less power, making them more energy-efficient, but you can also enjoy having warm water much more quickly.
Finding updates you can make to your bathroom to enjoy being more energy-efficient and warmer, even in the basement, can take some careful consideration. With the above projects, it should be much easier for you to feel good about getting the bathroom remodeled so that it feels comfortable and won't have issues due to being in the basement.
