As the chill of fall and winter officially set in, you’re probably unpacking your warm sweaters, buying hot chocolate, and adorning your bed with heavy quilts and blankets. Since extremely hot summers often lead to extremely cold winters, it’s time to get prepared! Below are a few bathroom remodeling projects that will keep you toasty this winter.

Modern-Day Japanese Soaking Tubs

Also known as an Ofuro hot tub, Japanese soaking tubs have been used for centuries and were originally made with Hinoki wood. However, you’ll be grateful that you don’t have to heat water over a fire and dump it in the tub by the bucketful, like they had to do originally. Now you can buy modern soaking tubs that are accessorized with seats, heaters, water jets, and enough space for two people.

Unlike a bathtub, a soaking tub isn’t intended to be a washing area. It’s actually a spa-like amenity with the sole purpose of helping you unwind and relax at the end of the day. They’re also much deeper than a regular tub, allowing you to blissfully soak your entire body. In fact, the tubs are so deep that you should check with your plumber to make sure that your hot water heater can support the quantity of water you need to fill the tub. You may need to get a larger water heater, or you could solve the problem by installing heaters in the tub itself.

The bathroom remodeler professionals at Indy Renovation can install a soaking tub in your master bathroom—the perfect way to stay warm and de-stress during the winter holidays.
