Warm Up Your Bathroom for Winter

With winter fast approaching, it's always nice to make your home a little cozier. However, you might overlook one room: the bathroom. Interior designer and HGTV host Genevieve Gorder explains that the bathroom is "a colder room in general because there's tile, stone, ceramic, metal; all the hardscaping is in this one little room. So we need to address it like we do every other space and warm it up."

Genevieve offers a few great tips to make things a little more homey. She recommends heated bathmats, and encourages thinking outside the box when it comes to floor coverings. "You can bring in most natural fiber rugs into the bathroom," she explains.

Another important factor is lighting. "Most of us just have those big overheads that have the glare and make us look bad," she says. Genevieve suggests sconce lighting and setting your bathroom lights to a dimmer to alter the brightness according to your mood and time of day.
