5 tips for Keller homeowners to prepare the bath for winter

As chilly weather approaches, it’s time for Keller homeowners to consider ways to winterize their living spaces. New seasons serve as a great opportunity to refresh bath décor and incorporate simple upgrades — ultimately transforming the bath from a cold, simple space into a warm and comforting winter oasis.

Warm it up!
There is nothing more relaxing after a stressful day than a steamy, luxurious shower. However, showers can’t last forever — even in the wintertime. Decrease the temperature shock by investing in a towel warmer A cozy, heated towel within arm’s reach will help eliminate those post-shower chills.

Keep the pipeline smooth.
When ice and snow cover the ground outside, there’s always a risk of frozen pipes. If residual water sitting in the pipes freezes, the flow is stopped, allowing water to expand and potentially lead to a burst pipe. Prevent a water shut-off by ensuring your pipes are insulated well in advanced of winter’s approach. Leave cabinet doors under the sink open to let warm air in, or if your pipe has already frozen over, use a hair dryer or portable heat source to thaw the pipe before bursting occurs.

Amp up the shower.
Swapping out an old showerhead can completely transform the bath experience in as little as five minutes. Consider something like the Delta In2ition showerhead which offers the feeling of using more water, while using less. Enjoy the benefits of a luxurious shower without depleting the hot water supply (and saving some for the guests).

Set the mood.
Speaking of simple swaps, trading out bathroom accessories to fit the season is a great way for Keller homeowners to change the look of the bath. Display cozy, plush robes to keep bathers warm when stepping out of the shower and make guests feel right at home. Consider installing robe hooks close to the shower door for easy access. For added flair, incorporate accessories such as towels in a festive pattern, splashes of gold in soap dishes, or hints of bronze in candle holders and picture frames.

Create candlelit luxury.
A flame effect creates a soothing aesthetic to any room. If your bath is particularly chilly, consider a freestanding, electronic fireplace heater to boost the temperature and add an element of sophistication to the room. Don’t have the space? Simply arrange a few candles to create a subtle, yet comforting environment. Lush, wintery scents like sweet peppermint, crisp pine and woodsy cedar enhance the mood.
