Bathroom heating is a subject close to our hearts here at Bella Bathrooms. But then, who doesn't welcome a lovely cosy bathroom on a cold winter’s morning, or a toasty towel the minute you step out the shower? Then there’s the paradise on earth that is underfloor heating.

But it’s not only in terms of comfort that bathroom towel rails and bathroom radiators are making their mark. For in terms of interior design some of the items available today are simply stunning and can themselves become a bathroom’s focal point.


Radiators and heaters can be purchased in most colours, including the more unusual black, silver and white. There is variety in shape too (thin, sophisticated column radiators still proving especially popular) which means you should be able to find a radiator capable of fitting any bathroom, regardless of its size and any awkward contours. These days bathroom towel rails and radiators are commonly produced in lightweight aluminium, gleaming chrome and stainless steel, and easy enough for a professional plumber to install in no time at all.

The even better news is that most modern radiators are sleek, sophisticated looking and, best of all, within budget for most individuals and families seeking to add a design boost to their bathroom. And why shouldn't we all treat ourselves to some winter warmth?


Towel Rails: What’s the Difference?

These days there is so much choice when it comes to towel rails that choosing a practical and attractive object to hang your towel can be just as confusing as choosing the right bathroom suite. It’s fantastic that there is such a variety of rails to hang your towels from as it means every bathroom can benefit from the ideal rail. However, with so many options it can be hard to distinguish which towel rail will perfectly compliment your bathroom size, style and design.

If you are completely renovating the bathroom, then why not increase its modern design with one of our heated towel rails. A heated towel rail adds a sense of luxury to the bathroom, and many are eco-friendly meaning a snugly warm towel waiting after a shower or bath won’t cost you the earth in energy bills. If you already have an effective radiator and just want to revamp the bathroom, then you can always choose a non-heated towel rail, in a ring or a rack form in plenty of different materials.


Electric Towel Rails

Choosing an electric towel rail is a popular choice, as they act differently to a radiator and heat up much faster. Most designs are tall and slim and mount onto the wall; as well as heating up your towels and the entire room they can also be seen as an added design element. There are many electric heated towel rails on the market, many of them made from silver metal such as chrome and stainless steel. Both these options fit in with most bathroom styles and décor; however those with smaller bathrooms should lean towards chrome. This is because the shiny silver bars are useful for reflecting light which will make the room appear more spacious.

Dual Fuel Towel Rails

By installing a dual fuel towel rail bathers have the option of operating the application in two ways; through the central heating system or electronically. This is especially useful when the central heating system is turned off and you want to take the chill out of the bathroom and enjoy a luxurious shower or bath. Again the dual fuel systems can be an added aesthetic element to any contemporary bathroom, available in a range of styles and metals. Aluminium is an extremely popular choice as it is the most environmentally friendly heated towel rail. Aluminium has fantastic heat conducting properties, and can radiate heat into every corner of the bathroom making it a good choice for larger rooms. Additionally, they radiate more heat than normal radiators yet only use one fifth of the water to do so.

Traditional Radiators

If you prefer the traditional look rather than the modern contemporary bathroom, then why not choose a traditional radiator. Install a classic white radiator, with added chrome bars attached to the wall where you can safely hang a towel pre-shower or bath to warm up nicely for your departure. Traditional radiators are a top choice to add elegance to any bathroom.
