Towel warmers are very easy to operate. All you have to do is plug it in, turn it on, hang your towels over it and in no time at all you will have nice dry and warm towels waiting for you. The merits of towel rails do not stop with their functional usefulness but rather they can be used to add style and sophistication to any bathroom. If you were to spend your money on just one bathroom accessory, then you should choose an electric towel rail. They truly add luxury to any bathroom.

Apart from looking good and providing you with a constant supply of warm towels. A towel radiator can be used as a traditional radiator to heat your bathroom. You can use it as the sole heat provider for the bathroom or as an extra reinforcement. There are a few factors that affect whether you can use it as the only heat source in the bath, such as the size of your bathroom, the size of the model and its BTU. Bigger models with bigger BTU's have larger outputs so can do a better job of warming your space.

There are also health benefits to having a towel warmer, because it will ensure that bacteria do not have any chance to develop. Moist environments, such as that of the bathroom are ideal for bacteria to spread and cause many illnesses. With a heated towel rail you eliminate this problem by quickly drying towels and also the air.

There was a time when most of us did not own a towel warmer and the only place you saw them was at hotels and at your friend's fancy home, but now they are everywhere and they have really come down in price. They are available both from online shops and in your local high street shop. They come in many different shapes, sizes and styles so there really is no excuse in finding the perfect model for you.
