Electric towel rails serve many purposes in the home. To begin with, they just look fantastic. You can place it anywhere in the bathroom and they will instantly have a positive effect. The effect is even more dramatic if you carefully choose where you locate it, so that it complements and works with the rest of the furniture in the bathroom. Heated towel radiators come in many different shapes, sizes and colours, so locating a unit that is suitable for your space should not pose too many difficulties.

The main reason to have one of these is you get to have warm towels to dry yourself with every time you step out of the shower or bath. Imagine being wrapped in a warm, dry and soft towel on a cold winter’s day as soon as you finish you relaxing bath. If you reluctant to get up in the morning because in the back of your mind you are worried about uncomfortable cold before and after showering then you need a heated towel rail, because not only does it provide you with warm towels but you can in fact heat your bathroom with it as well. Depending on the size of the unit, it can be sole heat provider or it can augment your radiator.

Another advantage is after you are done drying yourself, you will not be left with wet towels but they are quickly dried and thus there is no chance for bacteria to develop. Normally it takes some time for towels to dry and it is during this time and conditions that bacteria has time to grow.

We all want a nice, luxurious bathroom that allows us to start our day the best way possible and also be a place we can relax and unwind after a long hard day. The good news is we can have that place without spending a lot of money and by thinking about exactly what we need and choosing wisely what we want to buy.
