Providing you with the best in design and warmth, as well as ensuring you can really find a heated towel rail that works for you and your bathroom.
Different Types of Heated Towel Rail
As part of our heated towel range you’ll find a huge variety of choices. To help make the decision easier for you we have provided a quick guide on the options available to you.
Electric Heated Towel Rails vs Central Heating Towel Rails
Heated towel rails are available in two options: electric or central heating heated towel rails. Which one is best for your bathroom will depend on your home setup and personal preferences.
Electric Heated Towel Rails
Electric heated towel rails operate from electricity and run independently of your central heating system. Offering a great choice for homes that aren’t fully central heated or where the boiler doesn’t have the capacity. However, because electric heated towel rails are run independently of the central heating system, they work well in summer months when the central heating isn’t in use.
Central Heating Towel Rails
A central heating towel rail is plumbed into your central heating system, similar to your standard house radiators. Often when installing a central heating towel rail in your bathroom you will be replacing a standard radiator and therefore you should be able to install the new towel rail relatively easily. Once installed your towel rail will come on when your central heating system is activated.
Styles of Heated Towel Rails
Heated towel rails are also available in a wide range of designs and styles. These options include:
Curved Heated Towel Rails
Providing slightly more space behind the bars for hanging extra thick, fluffy towels, curved heated towel rails have crossbars which as the name suggests are curved outwards away from the wall. The curvature in the crossbars creates a visually appealing look, as well as providing a slightly higher heat output due to the crossbars being slightly longer. Curved heated towel rails complement bathrooms that already make use of curved bathroom accessories.
Straight Heated Towel Rails
Often referred to as ladder towel rails, straight towel rails make use of straight crossbars and sit flat against the wall. Straight heated towel rails are a popular option for any bathroom and offer a modern and stylish look, whilst also providing ample space for hanging towels.
Designer Heated Towel Rails
Gone are the days where you are limited by the standard choice when choosing your new towel rail. Now you even have the option of designer heated towel rails to really create a feature out of your towel rail. Our range of designer towel rails come in a variety of styles and are perfect for modern and contemporary bathrooms.
Our range of designer heated towel rails also include flat panel heated towel rails that provide a minimalistic and contemporary look. Working the same as a standard heated towel rail, flat panel towel rails will blend seamlessly with your existing bathroom accessories and décor.
Coloured Heated Towel Rails
You no longer must choose between just white and chrome towel rails. Here at Tap ‘n Shower we offer a range of coloured towel rails including anthracite and black heated towel rails. Anthracite and black towel rails are the perfect addition to any modern bathroom and complement a range of bathroom décor.
Traditional Towel Rails/Radiators
If you’re looking for a traditional look for your bathroom then our range of traditional heated towel rails and radiators are perfect for you. Combining classic styling with modern technology and engineering, traditional towel rails will look spectacular in any traditional or Victorian style bathroom.
Using a Heated Towel Rail as a Bathroom Radiator
A heated towel rail is the ultimate multi-functional bathroom must have because it not only warms and dries your towels, but it also works as a radiator, heating the entire bathroom and removing the requirement for a bathroom radiator.
When purchasing a heated towel rail, it is important to ensure you purchase the correct size and heat output required for your bathroom. This will ensure your bathroom doesn’t become over or under heated and reduces energy wastage.
Remember that when it comes to most standard UK bathrooms, they are relatively small and therefore it’s important not to go overboard when choosing the size and heating output of your new towel rail.
