Heated rails come in many shapes, sizes, colours and price ranges. They have become very popular lately with homeowners. They were originally exclusive to highend hotels but recently their price range has come down so that no matter your budget you will be able to buy one that will be perfectly suited to your purposes.

Buying a heated rail is very simple. All you have to decide is which type you want. You can get radiator types that plug in to the central heating system just like your normal radiator or you can go for electric types that that go into a plug. There are also dual fuel models that combine the features of both. Each type of heated towel rail has its advantages and disadvantages and which you end up buying will depend on your personal needs and the type of bathroom you have. It is a very good idea to do a bit of research to find out exactly which one will fit your purpose best.

The principal function of heated towel rails is to heat your towels so you can have nice, clean, crisp and warm towels, but that is not all they provide. They also serve other purposes that are both functional and aesthetic. If you have quite a big bathroom it might be the case that your present radiator might not be doing a good enough job of heating the space. Well, with a towel radiator you get extra warmth from the towel radiator. This is especially useful during the cold winter months.

Heated radiators also look fantastic. They can add a sense of style and sophisctication to any bathroom. You can even find designer heated rails that look fantastic although they cost a bit more than the normal models.
