And speaking of heaters. . .

weren’t we talking about heaters, recently? Yes, we were.

Several of the articles I read about the “right” places to use heaters specifically mention getting something to use in the bathroom, as you can always layer up elsewhere in the house, but there’s nothing quite like the horribleness of taking a shower in a very cold room (brrrrr). So today I did some digging around and found this DeLonghi heater at for $72.99 shipped.

It’s a bit more expensive than a bargain-basement ceramic heater (though still a significant savings over Amazon, where you should go read the many positive reviews), but it has two huge advantages for bathroom use: First, the skinny design is optimal for cramped spaces; and second, it’s water resistant, so you can rest easy about setting it near the shower. (Plus it’s just plain cool-looking and wall-mountable, too.)

Just pointing it out as a good option, if you’re thinking space heaters.


  1. This also got excellent ratings in consumer reports. I’ve been looking for a good price on this. Thanks, Mir.

  2. It’s only $81 at Amazon, if you can wait for it to come into stock. FWIW. Your price is lower, but Amazon’s customer service is superior.

  3. I didn’t realize it was on Amazon! I bought one last winter locally and loved it until I was nursing my baby one night and noticed it SPARKED. I saw one other review had a similar problem . . . I’m tempted to try again because it worked great while staying out of her reach. Hmm.

  4. The exhaust fan in our bathroom is also a light and a heater. Love it, love it, love it! It’s especially great for bath time when the Small One could spend hours swimming around. And since it’s installed in the ceiling, there’s no space consideration. Growing up, we had a wall unit heater in our bathroom.

  5. An oil-filled radiator type heater will also do well in a bathroom – no water worries.

    Also, you should, wherever your heat is on, be sure to have your ceiling fan on as well. The ‘winter’ setting pulls the air up, forcing the warm air near the ceiling to circulate to the rest of the room.

    It really does help.
