All you need to know about towel radiators
At vidaXL, we believe we have a towel radiator for every bathroom and every person. We have towel radiators for both small and big bathrooms that provide elegant functionality and seamlessly fit into your existing bathroom décor. And you can easily fix our heated towel rails to your bathroom wall.
We offer towel radiators with different designs. If you are looking to create more of a beach vibe, we recommend you opt for a white towel radiator. If, on the other hand, you are looking for something more minimalistic, then we recommend choosing a black towel rail.
Towels radiators are truly must-have accessories in your bathroom. When your towel radiator is connected to your warm-water central heating system, it will also serve as an actual radiator - not just a towel rail. This also makes towel radiators ideal in your laundry room, basement, or hallway as you can hang wet clothes on it after a walk in the rain.
Towel radiators can also be heated using an electric element instead of being heated by your warm-water central heating system. You can also heat it by what is called dual heating, which essentially is the best of both worlds. The benefit of heating your towel radiator like this is that you can still warm your towels during the summer months when your central heating system is most likely turned off.
Installing your towel radiator
In most modern homes you can rather easily install your new towel radiator by yourself. Because most modern homes have improved insulation you can more or less install your towel radiator on any wall you like. However, ideally, you want to install your towel radiator on the coldest wall of the bathroom. This is more often than not the external wall.
It is also a good idea to consider where the towel rail is in relation to your shower and consider where the shower door opens. You do not want to have to walk across the bathroom leaving water puddles all over the floor to get to your warm towel.
You should also think about the size of your towel rail. If you have a big family bathroom, you probably want a bigger towel radiator with several rungs so you can easily hang four or more towels on your towel radiator. However, if you have a small bathroom and it is just you and a partner, you may wish to opt for a smaller towel radiator that does not take up too much space.
Can a towel radiator heat a bathroom?
Towel radiators have become very popular in recent years. Originally, towel radiators were seen as something very luxurious, and they were primarily found in luxury hotels. However, they are often seen in normal, modern homes today, and while they certainly add a level of luxury to your bathroom, they are no longer the expensive, luxurious items they used to be in the 1980s. At vidaXL, our towel radiators are stylish and modern, yet affordable. But how good are they really, and can they heat your bathroom?
As already mentioned, towel radiators are actually rather effective as radiators. Many people choose to replace their bathroom radiators with a towel radiator, and it is not hard to understand why. A towel radiator will both keep your towels warm and dry, and efficiently heat your bathroom. However, it is important to mention that if you opt for a very small towel radiator that is designed for hand towels, it most likely will not be enough to warm up your bathroom - unless your bathroom is ultra-small. On the other hand, if you opt for a full sized towel radiator, it will be able to heat up your bathroom - even during the colder winter months.
Moreover, towel radiators take up less space compared to a normal radiator as they usually go from floor to ceiling instead of horizontally. This especially makes a big difference for smaller bathrooms where the space is limited.
A towel radiator will usually give out a bit less heat than a radiator, however, if you choose a bigger one, then it should still be able to heat up your bathroom enough to make it all cosy and warm. A towel radiator usually also takes less time to heat up than a radiator. Most electrical towel rails should be fully heated within just five minutes compared to about 15 minutes for a normal radiator.
Let your bathroom shine
Now that you have your new towel radiator, why not add some other beautiful accessories to your bathroom? At vidaXL, we offer several items for the bathroom. Here you can decorate your entire bathroom without breaking the bank. We feel that the bathroom is often an overlooked room in the home but think about how much time you spend in there. The bathroom is usually where you start and end every day. It is the room where you pamper yourself and have self-care routines, so why not create an oasis with warm towels, fresh flowers, and perhaps some essential oils?
The right bathroom accessories can give you that instant spa feeling, and luckily the bathroom is a very easy room to give a complete makeover - even if you are on a limited budget. Bathrooms are so easy to refresh and update with just a couple of new items. Strip away old towels, replace old and dirty mugs and get a new, fresh bathroom mat. In our wide selection of bathroom accessories, you will find products such as:
At vidaXL, we try to make it easy for you to style your bathroom on a budget, as we do not think decorating this overlooked room has to be expensive. You might be surprised at what just a few items such as a new toothbrush holder, a scented candle, and a new bath mat can do for your bathroom. And do not forget that towel radiator - you will thank yourself every time you step out of the shower and grab a warm, soft towel.
What to consider when decorating your bathroom
Whether you are buying accessories for your bathroom or a towel radiator, there are a couple of things you need to consider before getting out your wallet. First of all, you need to consider the style of your bathroom. As mentioned earlier, if you are going for that relaxed beach vibe, choosing a white towel radiator and other white items is perfect. If, however, you are going for a sleek, modern and stylish look, black or matte black is an ideal choice. You can also add an element of luxury with marble. Something as simple as a soap dispenser in marble can instantly add some luxury to your overall décor.
We also recommend that you stick to a colour scheme. If, for instance, you are looking to create a boho-styled bathroom, we recommend opting for more natural, earthy colours. Here, we recommend choosing everything from the toilet brush to the bath mat in earthy, natural colours. However, if you are looking for a Scandinavian, minimalist styled bathroom, then opt for more neutral colours such as grey, white, and black.
Our favourite tip is deciding on a colour scheme and sticking to it. If, for instance, you like a boho-styled bathroom, go for earthy colours with every item down to the toilet brush. For an extra spa feeling, we recommend that you buy a couple of candles and a plant or two. This is the icing on top of the cake that will take your decoration to the next level. It is all in the little details.
