What Types of Heating are Available?

Towel Rails

Lots of people prefer to choose towel rails for their bathroom as not only does it provide them with a heating source for the bathroom but also somewhere to air and warm their towels. You can’t beat stepping out of the shower or bath into a warm towel. The stylish design of modern towel rails can make them a real feature of your bathroom design and not just a necessary heat source. Available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, styles and even finishes you will be amazed at the options available to you.

This source of heating can be electric, dual fuel or even connected to your heating system so the boiler heats the water within your towel rail. Towel rails can suit smaller bathroom spaces as often they can be wall mounted and don’t take up as much space as radiators.


Radiators are now seen as a more traditional form of heating for your bathroom, yet our range of radiators can still give a really modern edge to your bathroom. People often prefer a radiator for larger bathrooms as they tend to be a more effective form of heating for your bathroom. The style of radiators has massively changed since the days of plain white chunky radiators but if it’s this traditional look that you prefer then we still have this style. Today’s radiators are available in such a wide variation of sizes and finishes from column radiators to aluminium radiators and even designer black radiators. You will find the ideal one to suit your given bathroom space.

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?

As with the towel rails our radiators tend to be connected to your boiler driven hot water system to provide you with an effective heating source. To give you more flexibility you can opt for an electric radiator which can be turned on or off as required which makes it ideal for the summer when you don’t want the heating on throughout your entire home. Or opt for the best of both worlds and choose a duel fuel radiator.

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.

Radiator Valves

Radiator valves play an important part in your heating system as they regulate the flow of water from your boiler through your radiators. This helps to give you complete control of the temperature within your bathroom. These radiator valves may seem a regular necessity but they are offered in a wide range of designs and finishes from sleek chrome to antique gold there is something for everyone. From designer valves to traditional valves and thermostatic valves you will be surprised at the wide selection available to control your radiator heat.

Underfloor Heating

For a long time underfloor heating was seen as a luxury but it is now more accessible to a wide variety of people. It provides you with a fantastic heating source which warms the entire bathroom and means no more stepping out onto a cold floor. It also gives you more room in your bathroom as you don’t need to allow room for a radiator. It is a very efficient heating system and is said to have health benefits as it creates less airborne particles.

We have electric underfloor heating in the form of heating mats and heating wires to create this fabulous heating source. The electric matting rolls out across the room and suits larger bathroom spaces whilst the electric wires can be useful for smaller or awkward bathroom spaces. Either system will leave you wondering how you coped without this heating source before!

Here at Bella Bathrooms we have everything type of heating source imaginable to help you create the perfect environment in your bathroom. Choose between different systems depending on which will suit your specific bathroom. The quality of these heating systems is assured as all of the towel rails, radiators and underfloor heating products are offered with lengthy manufacturers’ guarantees.


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.
