There's nothing worse than jumping out of a steaming shower only to be greeted by a chilly bathroom and a soggy towel, and having to spend half an hour trying to warm up again.
Therefore, whether you've got a spacious, beautifully designed wet room or a tiny rather cramped facility, it makes sense to take the time to decide how to best heat your bathroom.
With heating technology having come a long way in the past few years, there are now a range of choices for keeping your bathroom toasty, with something to suit every budget.
Many homeowners are now opting for towel rail radiators as an efficient and attractive way to heat the bathroom. These can either be used alone of with other types of heating to gently warm the room, with the added benefit that they will make your towels nice and cosy, too.
Wall mounted radiators are similar in terms of heating and are useful in that they don't take up much floor space, but they are only a practical choice if you have the space on the walls to install them, which isn't always realistic in the bathroom.
Ideal for keeping your toes toasty, underfloor heating is becoming increasingly popular in the bathroom. However, this needs to be installed when the floors are being laid down so is only really a good option if your bathroom is being renovated or if you're up for doing some serious DIY.
Finally, if you ever find yourself caught out with burst of cold water when you're in the shower and someone turns on the hot basin tap, you might want to consider installing thermostatic control.
"Another trend that's been around for some time is thermostatic control," says Roger Crabb, marketing manager for Mira showers. "So with that, there's the ability to ensure the temperature is controlled - irrespective of whether toilets are flushed or taps are being turned on elsewhere in the home."
