There are many options available for heating in your bathroom. As well as a conventional style radiator you should also consider putting in a traditional towel rail. This not only provides an economical low level of heat for your bathroom but also offers convenient rails for you to dry towels on.

If you are thinking about putting in a traditional towel rail in your bathroom or shower room then here are some more details to help you make an informed decision.

1. Why you need a traditional towel rail

Providing dry towels in a busy household can be a difficult task. With a traditional towel rail you can easily dry towels in the bathroom without having to wait for the warm weather or using your tumble dryer. These traditional towel rails are cost effective, easy to use and provide a continuous low level of heat to keep your bathroom warm and dry.

2. Choosing traditional towel rail designs

There are a great range of traditional towel rails available for homeowners. This means no matter what size, shape or style your bathroom is you should be able to find the perfect traditional towel rail. If you have a small bathroom then you need to be careful about which rail you buy. Some can be quite bulky and could intrude into your small space. Make sure you opt for one of the slim options that will fit nicely into the room.

3. Maintenance and cleaning

One great thing about a traditional towel rail is that it will not require very much maintenance. In most cases all you will need to do is keep the exterior clean with a quick wipe over with some regular household cleaning spray.

4. Putting in a traditional towel rail

Most traditional towel rails can be plumbed straight into a conventional heating system. However you do need to check this first before you make any plans. A specialist heating engineer will be able to help you install a traditional towel rail or you could consider doing this job yourself if you have some good DIY skills.

If you are worried about putting in a traditional towel rail to your heating system you can buy independent options. These will run from a plug and have the traditional style without all the fuss of full installation.

5. Positioning towel rails

Bathrooms are normally fairly tight spaces that have a lot going on. In most bathrooms you will have a bath, shower, sink and toilet all competing for space. The last thing you will want is a towel rail getting in the way. This is why you have to be very careful about where you position your traditional towel rail. It does need to be on a clear space of wall away from the door, bath and shower. This will allow you to move about your room conveniently and hang your towels to dry without any bother.
