Choosing The Best Heated Towel Rails To Add Comfort And Luxury To Your Bathroom

Do you long for warm, fluffy towels after getting out of the shower on a cold winter’s morning? Do you wish your towels would dry quickly after being used instead of hanging there, limp and damp for hours? Heated towel rails could be just the solution you have been searching for!

On top of keeping your towels warm and dry when you’ve finished bathing, they can also help to heat your bathroom. They help to eliminate the musty smell that occurs when towels are damp for too long and they’re more hygienic for your family (as they minimise the presence of damp-loving bacteria).


Choosing the best option for your bathroom, however, is easier said then done.

  • Finishes
    There is a range of materials and finishes to choose from, including: chrome, stainless steel, nickel, brass and copper. You’ll find that chrome plated brass and stainless steel are the most common, as they’re quite hardwearing. Matte black is also becoming an increasingly popular choice for modern bathrooms and is very on trend.
  • Size
    Our rails are available in a variety of sizes to ensure that the needs of your bathroom are met with ease. The size that you ultimately select will depend on the size of the room, the number of people using it and how many towels you wish to keep warm. Too big a rail can be a waste of energy, but too small can mean the towels overlap.
  • Style
    These days, towel rails come in a wide range of styles. There are traditional designs, which are better suited to older and period homes, and modern ones, which are perfect for contemporary homes. Other style features to consider include whether you want curved or straight rails, arched or straight tops
  • Wiring
    The great thing about hydronic rails is that there aren’t any messy cords and plugs to worry about. Instead, there are two narrow tubes running into the unit from the floor – one feeds hot water into the system, the other takes the cooling water back to the boiler. An electric element is also available for keeping towels dry during summer.

Although any rail will add a sense of comfort and luxury to your bathroom, Cambro Hydronic Heating understands that navigating the many options available can be challenging at the best of times. If you’re interested in heated towel rails for your home, we hope that the information provided above has enabled you to make the best possible choice for your home.
