Long ago, mankind fought hard to stay warm and safe. We huddled in holes and caves, built dirt and straw homes, and eventually learned to build fires, ovens, and other structures to keep us safe and warm. Warmth is the epitome of happiness when the temperatures are cold. Today, there are many things that we can do to make our home more comfortable with remodeling.
When you think of remodeling a bathroom, you can integrate many comfort features into the project. With the right focus, any bathroom can become a luxurious, relaxing place where you feel warm and comfortable.
Over time, we’ve become accustomed to creature comforts like:
- Soft fabrics
- Durable clothing
- Touch-of-a-button function
- Instant gratification
- Music and movies wherever and whenever we want them
- Enticing aromas
- High-tech lighting
- Smart home features
- Fast cars and traveling
- Instant heat and cold
Many of these comfort features can be incorporated into a bathroom remodeling project in some way. Here are some ideas.
Remodeling Bathrooms For Luxury & Comfort
From floor to ceiling, even a small bathroom can be remodeled with comfort in mind. For instance, by choosing a smaller vanity that still has a cabinet for storing toilet paper, more space can be allotted between the tub, toilet, and sink. Add additional space by converting the tub to a shower.
Install heated flooring, LED ambiance lighting, remote controlled lights and window shades, a great shower head, and a nice high window or skylight. Incorporate these and you’ve brought some creature comforts into the small bathroom.
You can go even further with beautiful bamboo floors or your favorite natural stone, custom shelving for storing toiletries and towels, and a bathroom movie and music entertainment system.
Installing Heated Flooring For The Bathroom
Heated floors are phenomenal in any bathroom. There’s nothing like a nice warm floor against bare skin. Imagine setting the flooring in your bathroom to warm so when you go in, it’s all ready for you to enjoy. No more shivering before or after the bath.
Heated flooring can be installed underneath a variety of floor types. Most remodeling contractors tend to say it is best under ceramic or natural stone tiles because the material absorbs the warmth so well.

For example, let’s say you really love to relax out by the pool after a long hard day. Imagine this even if you don’t have a pool. You enjoy taking a little soak and then getting out to lay out for a little while by the water fountain or waterfall feature. Now, all around you are the smells and sounds of nature.
You can incorporate some of these things into your bathroom remodeling design. For instance, in your bathroom, you can install a water feature so when you soak in your jet tub or garden tub, you are as close as possible to the relaxation you feel when you’re outside. Colors can be added to sooth you, like the colors of the water and sky. Lighting can be adjusted to resemble evening time. And live plants can add aroma and freshen the air.
