Kitchen & Bath

Easy solution warms up a chilly bathroom

(NC)—Nothing beats the warmth and invigoration of a hot shower, especially on a cold winter’s day. Although bathrooms are usually considered to be a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation, they can be among the coldest rooms within the home due to the nature of their construction. Homeowners may have temperature control issues in a bathroom because they are typically situated against the perimeter of the house with tiles that are unable to retain heat.

During winter, the external walls may be near freezing which can permeate into the bathroom. Together with any air leaks within the walls, the area can be cold and uncomfortable.

In some homes, homeowners are installing heated floors with new technologies to improve the comfort within a bathroom. In other homes there are modern, easy to install solutions that help insulate as well as maintain comfort.

Spray foam insulation, like that available from Icynene, creates an air barrier between the walls, floors and the cold weather outside. This modern material ensures that the warmth stays inside and that the bathroom remains a space to relax and refresh. More information on spray foam insulation can be found online at
