Towel radiators (sometimes called heated towel rails) are extremely useful products, and you may be wondering whether you should get one or not. Even in summer, towel radiators are a great product to have, but you may be wondering what the benefits of having one in your bathroom are. In this article we take you through why you should have a towel radiator in your bathroom. Warmer Towels The obvious benefit, first of all, is your towels will be warmer. There’s nothing better than getting wrapped in a nice, warm towel when exiting the bath or shower. If the towel radiator is warm then simply hang the towel back up when you are finished with it and it will dry much quicker and eliminate the need to wash the towel after each use. Warmer Bathroom Towel radiators give off a lot of heat and this works very well for keeping your bathroom warm. You can get towel radiators that work off either the central heating system in your house, or from the electricity supply. You can get some towel radiators that utilise both systems. If you get one that is connected to your central heating system then set the heating to come on in the morning before you get up, as you won’t want a freezing cold bathroom when you first get up. More Space With somewhere to hang your towels you are also freeing up space in the bathroom for other things. Having a towel radiator in your home means there’s no need to have a radiator, heated towel rails are generally installed higher up and are smaller than a radiator, this gives you more floor space and will give your bathroom the illusion that it is larger than what it actually is. Drying Clothes Towel radiators are not only limited to heating towels, you can also use them to dry clothes. Heated towel rails offer you that bit of extra space, which is particularly useful if you don’t have a tumble dryer or indoor washing hanger, or if it is raining and you can’t use your outdoor washing line. Materials Different towel radiators are made from different materials; there is brass, chrome, stainless steel and many more. Stainless steel offers the benefit of not needing a rust inhibitor, which will save you more money in the long run. Styles There is a towel radiator to suit everybody thanks to the large number of shapes and sizes available. There is plenty of choice out there, allowing you to choose a specific type that would complement the décor of your bathroom. Adding one of these appliances to your bathroom will really modernise it. The most popular type of towel radiators is the ladder rail types. If you would prefer one that is less modern then there are traditional versions available. Hopefully this article has informed you of the advantages of installing a heated towel rail. There are a number of different types sold by JT Atkinson. Have a look around and see which one suits you the most.
