Contrary to all those television adverts, bathrooms generally lack space and aren’t as sprawling as suite manufacturers would have us believe. If you, like most of us, have a compact bathroom and are looking for an easy way to keep it warm, here’s one idea you might like.
Lots of people think that if they don’t have a gas boiler, they can’t have a heated towel rail in the bathroom. Not true. There are plenty of options when it comes to electric heating towel rails and in fact, you’ll find them probably more flexible and controllable.
Electric towel rails are a great way to keep your towels nice and warm and dry, and they are a dab hand at keeping the bathroom warm too, if you choose one with a decent wattage. Go for something around 600 watts and this will be enough to heat most bathrooms. The smaller, cheaper models around 150 watts you’ll find will just warm the towels, they won’t act as a room heater.
There’s also the option to have a thermostatically controlled electric towel rail, and there’s even more choice when it comes to finish. You could go for white, brass or chrome, and flat or curved rails. Heated towel rails can add a really stylish touch to your bathroom, so there’s another benefit for you. Plus they’re relatively easy for a professional electrician to install too.
