What are the different electrical solutions for common bathroom problems?

When you think of a bathroom problem you probably imagine you need to call a plumber or heating engineer. However there are several common bathroom problems that can be solved using electrical solutions in line with the building regulations as discussed in our previous article. These electrical solutions include:

  • Heating a cold bathroom space
  • Lighting a dark bathroom
  • Fixing the bathroom shower

Electrical solutions to heat your bathroom

Stepping out of a hot bath or shower into a cold bathroom can be an unpleasant experience. But heating your bathroom can be simple especially with some electrical solutions. An electrical bathroom towel rail for example can not only keep your bathroom warm by radiating heat from the wall into the space, but this can also be the perfect way to keep your towel warm and dry too. This can be much easier to install than additional radiators, as they are mains powered, and this means that you will not need to move pipework to install. At the same time, a towel rail can help save floor space as these are slimline and tend to be used vertically up the wall.

Lighting considerations for the bathroom

Light in the bathroom space can make a lot of difference to the visual appeal of the bathroom, as well as the practicality of the space. A bright, well lit bathroom will always be more welcoming than a dark bathroom, and choosing the right light fixtures can help you achieve the perfect, bright space. Bathroom lighting is categorized into different zones, so you will need to choose the right type of lighting for the right zone. These zones are-

  • Zone 0- underwater lights 
  • Zone 1- lights over a shower or bath
  • Zone 2- lights over a sink
  • Zone 3- lights outside the above zones
