If you’re looking for a way to display your favourite designer towel, while at the same time, making your bathroom cosy as possible, then read on. Towel heaters are all the rage in the home interior industry and no respectable bathroom is complete without one. There’s an astounding array of designs at prices to suit everyone and for those who don’t want the hassle of complicated plumbing installation, electric versions are growing in availability.
For those looking for designer quality, Originalbathroomcompany.co.uk probably has the most comprehensive range in one spot. Choose from towel rails, towel stands and towel ladders in their hundreds. Although, quite pricey, they have a free delivery service for all orders over £75 to anywhere in UK.
The quirky named ‘Victoria Plumb’ company has a nice selection of well-priced towel holders. Their traditional range is particularly unique. Most models on the market tend to be very modern and so, may not be very suitable for period-style bathrooms.
Heated towel holders function in the same way as conventional radiators, warming your bathroom as well as organising towels and drying them efficiently. This means that to install heaters properly, you need to hire a professional plumber. If you don’t have central heating or want to take some hassle out of putting a towel heater in, you should consider an electric heater which is much easier to install. Regardless, it’s important to consider the size of the bathroom before you buy, because you need to ensure that the rail will generate enough heat for the room. As a general rule of thumb, select a model with a higher output than actually required, since the thermostat can be turned down if necessary.
Other options to consider
Also, consider the finish of the heater. Many companies offer models in either stainless steel or chrome, with stainless being more common. As the name indicates, stainless is much easier to maintain, and doesn’t seem to age as much over time. However, chrome has a sleeker, more polished appearance and is much flashier than stainless. Due to its stronger aesthetic appeal, chrome tends to be a bit more expensive. However, the much you want to spend and whichever particular style you’re after, the recent rise in popularity of heated towel holders has led to an enormous variety of choice available. Shop around, to find something that you truly love and don’t forget to include the price of installation, fittings and delivery in your budget.
