Some form of heat is essential for a bathroom and without any heat showers and baths will be most unpleasant. Old-fashioned radiators do an OK job, but if you want your bathroom or en suite to look modern and stylish, a heated towel rail is a far better choice. The main problem with old-fashioned radiators is that they are not much good at drying multiple towels. A heated towel rail, on the other hand, is perfectly designed for drying and warming towels. The innovative ladder design of heated towel rails dries towels far more efficiently than a regular radiator, so your towels will be nice and dry within a short time.
Choosing the right style of heated towel rail is very important, so you need to give a lot of thought to what type of decorative finish you desire. Contemporary bathrooms will benefit from a sleek, modern designer anthracite towel radiators whereas a Victoriana-style heated towel rail would be suitable for a bathroom with a more traditional finish. You don’t even have to stick with a chrome finish—there are other colour options available. Size is also an important consideration. Larger bathrooms will be able to cope with a large towel rail, but if your small room is exceedingly compact, a small heated towel rail will be a much better choice.

Most designer towel radiators have simple and easy to remove wall fixing brackets. Removing these will make your life a lot easier and if you are reasonably skilled on the DIY front, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do the job yourself.
