Adding some extra warmth to your bathrooms boosts your home value while also ensuring that you’ll have a well-heated and comfortable environment for bathing and showering during winter. With these heating options, you can warm up your bathrooms as needed without having to turn up your thermostat, causing your furnace to run more often. Consider the following high-end heating ideas to keep your bathrooms feeling cozy this winter. 

Radiant Floor Heating

Radiant floor heating provides a way to warm up your bathroom floors, so you won’t be walking on cold surfaces. Whether your bathroom floors are made of natural stone or elegant tile, these materials tend to stay cool to the touch, even when you have your furnace running. Having a radiant floor heating system installed means you can have warm floors to step on when you’re getting in and out of your shower or tub. 

Different types of radiant floor heating systems are available for bathrooms, including electric, air-heated, and hydronic. Each type generates heat that moves up through your floors, efficiently keeping them as warm as needed. This type of heating system also helps keep your bathrooms warmer overall, since heated air rises. 

High-End Towel Warmers

Towel warmers offer a convenient way to make sure you always have a warm towel available to wrap yourself in after taking a bath or shower. Rather than going with a standard one with a simple design and features, consider getting high-end models with more to offer. Luxury towel warmers are available in hydronic and electric models. Hydronic models connect to your plumbing to use heated water to warm up towels, while electric ones use your home’s electrical system. 

High-end towel warmers often have extra features, such as heated shelves rather than racks or hanging racks and hooks for holding robes or hand towels. Some towel warmers also have a timer that you can set to turn on at certain times, so you don’t have to wait long for your towels to warm up.

Exhaust Fan Combinations

Bathroom exhaust fans are a standard part of ventilating these areas of your home and preventing too much moisture from building up. You can add heat to these fans for instant warmth, as well as lighting for added safety when you’re walking around at night. Some exhaust fan combinations include an infrared lamp that provides a direct source of heat in the area outside of your tub or shower. With some models, you can automatically have your fan combination, including heat, come on as soon as you step into your bathroom and shut off when you leave.

My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

These skills take years to develop and require continual experience and education. I've been practicing real estate FULL TIME in the Tampa Bay area since 1996 and have established myself as one of the areas top 10%. Time in the business, full time experience working both sides of the Bay and dedication to continued education set me apart from other realtors. My customers receive the highest level of expertise and service with complete confidence that they have chosen the right person for the job!      

As a Tampa real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. After 15 years in the business I left corporate first real estate to start my company, Tampa Home Sales, Inc. As a corporate company agent I struggled time and again with their changing policies and added customer fees that were mandated in the interest of the "company" that imposed unnessary financial burden on my customers and inhibited my ability to work with customers in a manner that meets their individual needs. Every buyer and seller has a different set of circumstances and deserves the attention and services that are as individual as they are.         

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest nonproprietary technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home ANYWHERE in the Tampa Bay area; from South Tampa, Hyde Park, Palma Ceia, Harbour Island, Davis Islands, Channel Side, Beach Park, So Ho, Bayshore, Bayshore Beautiful, Golfview Estates, Parkland Estates, MacDill, Carrollwood, Westchase, Seminole Heights, New Tampa, Tampa Palms, Brandon, Valrico, Riverview, Lutz, Land O'Lakes to across the Bay cities of Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor, Largo and the Pinellas County Beaches, please contact me.
