Picking the Right Heated Towel Rails for Bathrooms

Dec 8th 2014 at 5:00 AM

Every bathroom needs at least one good towel rail that can keep towels clean and dry. A damp towel can be a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, making it unsafe for use. Sadly, certain conditions like humidity and cold weather can make it difficult for your towel to dry fast. This is why you should consider upgrading your typical towel rails to a heated version.

Heated towel rails are stylish, sleek, and provide the warmth that needed to dry your towels and give off extra warmth in your bathroom. These products are available in different sizes and types online. Which one should you choose? Here is a guide that can help you pick the right heated towel rails for your particular bathroom.

Traditional Style

This type of heated towel rail can go with a period or Victorian style bathroom or a country cottage setting. It looks classic and provides the convenience of a modern heating system. Traditional heated towel rails resemble antique cast iron column radiators with modern rails. Pick one that is nickel-plated for a more luxurious appeal. Choose a traditional style heated towel rail with a British-made radiator in solid brass tubing and with a polished nickel finish.

Ladder Style

A ladder style heated towel rail is ideal for family bathrooms. Seek one that can be mounted on the wall to save space and to prevent the lowest towel from dragging onto the floor.

Glass and Mirror Towel Rails

These are stylish and space-saving heated towel rails with clear or coloured glass in green, black, plum, red, cream, or white. The towel warmer is part of the construction. There are suppliers that can provide a glass and mirror towel rail with a rail that has a bronze or silver mirror finish. Some suppliers can provide these products with a bathroom radiator.

Bar on Bar

This type of heated towel rail is similar to ladder style towel rails, but they are available in short, long, or medium lengths for a more bespoke fit. Bar on bar style towel rails are versatile for other parts of the home, too, such as in cloak rooms and kitchens. They are stylish and they look great when mounted on the bathroom wall.

Electric Towel Rails

Heated towel rails are typically available in dual fuel and central heating versions, but there are options powered by electricity. Electric towel rails can be provided in any style and they can run independently even if you do not have a boiler.
