American Standard Dream Bath: Hot Time in the New Bath Tonight
Carey Brothers Remodeling has just finished a master bath remodel.
The owners were looking for comfort and warmth for their new tile floor. They also chose to install a heated towel bar to warm up their towels and to help dry them.
Some of the perks of a warm floor will even help reduce your need for forced air heat which blows dust and particles around the bath and is noisy.
No more cold feet when you walk out of the shower, so no more small slippery bath rugs that are unsafe!
Warm floor are energy efficient and will help cut utility costs. No more heating up the house for a warm bathroom. The bath can be a consistent temperature all through the cold weather. Just set the thermostat for your favorite temperature and enjoy WARM FEET!
