How to Choose a Towel Warmer to Complete Your Bathroom
Decorating the bathroom can be a great opportunity to create yourself a sanctuary at home – a place that feels luxurious and tranquil. You might have a design in mind, but it’s the finishing touches that make all the difference.
Luxury is rarely cold, so heating your bathroom is important. Designers often talk about radiators and towel warmers, but what’s the difference and which one do you need?
What Is a Towel Warmer?
It is an appliance, like many others around the home, but one that is generally reserved for the bathroom to dry off towels after use; the heat helps to keep the room clean by drying out the cotton and preventing mould in a moisture-rich environment.
The rails can be powered electrically, which means it can be used whether or not the home heating system is on, or it can operate hydronically, where a unit is plumbed in to the main system, just like a radiator.
Towel rails are really versatile, and their use is not limited to just bathrooms. They can also be used for in a basement, laundry room or even the bedroom if you think you’d benefit from their presence there.
The benefits you get depend on the type of towel warmer you choose. You will find that the racks are available in various shapes and sizes. They are very functional, but they can also add a touch of style to a room.
Of course, you don’t have to put your towel rail in the bathroom; they work just as well in a laundry room, hallway, even a bedroom if you like. You might just want to consider the style, and there are many different options. A small towel warmer can work well in a small WC, where a hand towel might otherwise remain damp for some time. It’s also a space-saving, energy-preserving way of keeping off the chill in a small room, in place of a radiator.
Companies such as Apollo Radiators supply towel warmers and can give advice on choosing the right appliance for you. The variety available means you can match your room and décor.
And let’s face it, who doesn’t fancy stepping out of the shower and reaching for a lovely warm towel to wrap up in? It certainly beats a cold damp one!
