Stepping out of a warm bath or shower can be very uncomfortable, especially in the colder winter months. Heated towel rails now provide you the luxury of a warm towel straight out of the bath or shower. The heated towel rail provides much more opportunity than just heat, such as positioning and as a standard radiator is not required this will give you more space around the walls. The main advantage of having a heated towel rail is that it keeps your bathroom at a steady temperature and helps to keep the room dry, it also can be used the air out recently-washed items of clothing or towels.
Heated towel rails can vary in size depending on how many towels you need it to hold. Some towel rails will hold several towels and some will only hold one. Along with the size they can also come in many different styles, shapes and colours so that you can choose the right one to fit the style of your bathroom.
The two main types of the heated towel rail are the electric towel rail and the standard heated towel rail which runs of the central heating within your house, allowing you to adjust the temperature when you want.
