This season is your home feeling colder than you remember? If your winter home is in need of of heat, these winter warming ideas for your home could be just what you need. Most people associate cold, chilly winter months with hot, steamy baths that warm them up right to the bones. But, does the thought of stepping into a cold bathroom with an icy floor to run a hot bath dissuade you from your few minutes of warm luxury?
Winter Warming Ideas for your Home
Here are three easy ways to cozy up your bathroom this winter:
1. Add a rug:
Probably the easiest way to add some instant warmth to your bathroom is by placing a cozy rug. Forget the bathmat and pull out a generously large rug to perk up bath time in winter. The thought of stepping onto plush softness and warmth of the rug instead of chilly marble will double the pleasure of a hot bath. Pick a rug with rich, warm colors and place a rug pad underneath to avoid slipping.

2. Install a heated towel rack:
A heated towel rack is an inexpensive way of keeping your towels toasty during the cold winter months. Imagine the luxury of stepping out from a steamy shower and wrapping yourself in a warm towel. Heated towel racks can rev up your winter time baths into a spa-like feel. These are energy efficient and inexpensive to buy.

3. Improve the insulation:
Even the smallest or hole in the window or the window frame can let cold air in. This often results in considerable loss of heat and can shoot up your heating bill. Make sure that your windows are air tight and well insulated. You can reseal the window edges with silicon sealant and apply a window insulation film. The process is easy and can be done quickly without any professional help. While you are checking the windows, also check if your heat radiator is heating properly. A small check can help save a lot of money and energy.
