If you have flipped through the pages of a home décor magazine lately or happened to catch one of the home makeover shows on television then you know bathrooms are a real focus – they are bigger and more well-equipped than ever before and the fancy amenities that used to be found only in upscale hotels and high-end resorts are now standard issue in many new homes. While you may not have the budget for a total makeover featuring double vessel sinks, multiple showerheads, spa tubs and more, there are still plenty of things you can do to modernize your bathroom without breaking the bank.

Towel warmers are a great example – they are found in all of the better hotels and spas; it’s not all that expensive or difficult to install a towel warmer or heated towel rack in your own home and the cost is far less than the cost of even one night in a fancy resort. There are freestanding towel warmers which require no installation at all; countertop towel warmers are also easy to use. A wall mounted towel warmer may be something you can install on your own, or, depending on the make and model, you may need to call in a professional. Either way, towel warmers pay dividends in comfort and convenience. Warm blankets and baby clothes, dry fine washables and swimwear or enjoy the cozy comfort of a hot fluffy towel after a bath or shower.
Switching out your old towels and replacing them with super-absorbent thick cotton terry cloth towels is a great way to enhance your bathing experience, especially when you invest in some bath sheets too.
