A heated towel rack may appear to be an extravagance at first, but it has several advantages that go well beyond providing toasty towels for your renovated bathroom.
On frigid winter mornings, who doesn’t enjoy wrapping themselves in a warm bath towel as soon as they step out of the shower? In order to prevent mildew, a heated towel rack quickly dries wet towels after a bath. This way, warm towels are always available. The ideal way to utilize a heated rack is to simultaneously heat the bathroom and the towels.
Your post-shower bath towels will be warmed and dried after use on the perfect towel rack. (A cabinet-style towel warmer or hamper can only be used to warm towels. They must be thoroughly dry before anything is hung on them.) Towel warmers that are plug-in and free-standing are heavy. Warming “towel radiators” serve two purposes in retro homes where a regular radiator must fight for space in a small bathroom.
Warming racks mounted on walls are the best.
Warm water is used to heat a hydronic towel warmer, which works like a radiator hung on a wall. (Professional installation is required to tap into a home’s plumbing.) The bathroom can be heated, towels can be warmed for use after a bath, and damp clothes may be dried using hydronic racks.
Warming racks come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and designs to fit in or stand out. Emulate the interior design of a turn-of-the-century house or use a contemporary, minimalist style. Choose a finish that goes well with the other bathroom fixtures in your decor, or treat this wall fixture as a statement piece by going for a striking pattern or contrasting color.
When redesigning a small bathroom or if you just want to keep your bath towels toasty warm and quickly dry, a heated towel rack is a practical, versatile solution.
