Often radiators can be taken for granted; seen as a simple commodity we all have in our homes. However, they can be so much more. Whilst they’re designed with the main purpose of heating homes that shouldn’t be their only objective.
We have designer column radiators ideal for living rooms and traditional towel radiators perfect for bathrooms, as well as so much more. Radiators should be both practical and stylish, becoming a focal point of any room.
Gone are the days when radiators were hidden behind clothes airers and forgotten about until winter. Now they command attention and admiration.
Modernising bathrooms can be a labour-intensive task. They often require more than a quick lick of paint. However, when it comes to bathroom upgrades, there is one feature that combines both functionality and style effortlessly: the towel radiator.
Towel radiators are modern in look and designed to suit all aesthetics whilst being incredibly practical too. An easy way to hang towels that creates an organised and uniform look. If you’re designing a family bathroom then you’ll be pleased to know towel radiators are family-friendly as they give everyone a space to hang their towel.
Not only do towel radiators add a touch of luxury to your bathroom, they also serve a practical purpose by helping to prevent mold and mildew build-up on your towels. Above all, these kinds of radiators are designed to keep towels dry between showers and baths.
Traditional radiators are not generally designed to dry towels, this is why the paint will often erode and the radiator will struggle to heat the room if covered.
Due to the large surface area of heated towel rails, they can easily heat a room of any size. If you have a smaller bathroom a towel radiator will keep it exceptionally toasty for you during the colder winter months.
Another benefit of towel radiators for smaller bathrooms is the fact they’re dual-purpose. Designed to heat a room whilst also acting as a towel rail to save space.
If you look forward to bath time but hate getting out into a cold bathroom, a towel radiator is the solution. Not only do they heat your bathroom but also keep your towel warm and snuggly for after. Creating a spa-like experience in your own home.
New radiators have great heat output and are more energy efficient than older models. Therefore, upgrading to a new radiator is never a bad idea. Towel radiators are easy to fit, take just a few hours, and are compatible with most central heating systems. If you’re a DIY novice we recommend hiring a professional plumber to install it for you.
They’re also a brilliant way of saving space if you have limited wall space or want something higher up. Some models are equipped with additional features such as programmable timers and thermostatic controls, to suit personal preferences.
We want your radiator to be a feature of the room and command eye contact as soon as someone enters. That’s why we offer our towel radiators in anthracite, white, and chrome meaning there is something to suit all interiors.
There are also curved and flat options dependent on your style preferences. Chrome is futuristic, it goes well in white bathrooms with splashes of colour. White will be a hit with all family members as it’s traditional whilst still being suited to modern bathroom designs.
Our personal favourite is anthracite. Style with white tiles and grey grout, or black and white flooring for unbeatable style.
You may feel that getting a towel radiator is an initial investment if your current radiator isn’t completely on its last legs. However, once fitted your new towel radiator will last for years to come, heat your room to perfection and ensure your towels are dry.
If you’re looking for something slightly different from the long-established but extremely popular towel radiator look no further than the traditional bathroom radiator shown above. If you’re a couple who won’t use a large towel radiator to its full potential or maybe you’re looking to spruce up your downstairs toilet this is the perfect option.
Just the right size for hand towels or a luxurious bath towel before your evening soak, whatever you choose to use your bathroom radiator for we know this one will be the envy of everyone who sees it.
This blog may have focused on the benefits of a towel radiator in your bathroom but we think towel radiators are ideal for kitchens too. Especially if you use your kitchen to entertain. A stylish focal point and a way of keeping you and your guests warm in the evening. You can also keep your hand towel, tea towel, and even oven gloves hung on it for ease of access and quick drying.
