Upgrading your bathroom does not have to mean a complete re-do and there are some great upgrades that can really positively impact any bathroom, improving both its overall look and function. These simple home  improvements can be made for a relatively small investment but the difference they will make to you day to day life is huge. Here are some great bathroom upgrades well worth considering:

Radiant Underfloor Heating– If you have ceramic tile, stone or even plain old lino on your bathroom floor you probably know just how unpleasant stepping out of the shower onto a cold hard floor can be. Installing radiant underfloor heating solves that problem and it is actually the single most energy efficient way to heat your bathroom as well.

Heated Towel Racks – Staying on the warming theme a heated towel rack means that whenever you step out of the bath or shower you can warp yourself in a towel that is warm as well as soft. Its not a bathroom necessity by any stretch of the imagination but its awfully nice to have one of these and imagine how impressed house guests will be!

Skylights and Suntubes – If yours is a rather dark bathroom but you don’t have the space (or budget) to knock out part of a wall to add a new window a skylight or sun-tube may be the perfect alternative. Solar tubes are particularly effective as they are especially designed to make the most of whatever natural light is available and direct it down and out to brighten up even the smallest space without adding to your electricity bill.

Luxurious Shower Heads – Creating a spa like shower in your own bathroom can be achieved simply by changing your shower head. Rain showers, dual shower heads and body sprays are all great ways to improve your shower experience. For the ultimate in spa at home luxury though consider swapping your regular shower for a steam shower. Such things are less expensive than you might imagine and a good tradesman can have one installed and ready fore use in the matter of just a day or so.
