Do you have a tiny bathroom in your property? Are you worried there just isn't enough room for a heated radiator? With bathroom sizes shrinking, it's a fair concern. But, the size of your space shouldn't affect its functionality or style. At Designer Radiators Direct, we have designer towel radiators in a variety of sizes, orientations, and styles to ensure it fits seamlessly into your space.

What Are Towel Radiators?

Towel radiators and towel rails are handy little radiators that not only provide heat, but also have heated towel rails so you can warm your towels, clothes and bathrobes. Most types of towel rails are known as ladder towel radiators, these usually have multiple heated horizontal bars or panels dropping down in a ladder design. But nowadays towel radiators come in a range of designs.

Towel rails are smaller than typical living room radiators so if you're limited on space, they’ll be more beneficial for you. A myth is that towel radiators can’t heat your room, but with modern technology, a correctly sized towel rail will have no issues heating most spaces.

How To Use A Towel Radiator?

The standard place to put heated towel rails is the bathroom. However, towel radiators and towel rails aren't limited to that space. Heated towel rails have blossomed in design so they can be the perfect addition to a kitchen or utility room.

Usually, it's best to fit your heated towel rails on the coldest wall of the room. This is often near a window. This can help ensure heat is distributed throughout the space effectively, improving efficiency and helping you create a cosy space to enjoy.

What Material Is Best For A Towel Radiator?

Towel radiators are often used in rooms with high humidity like bathrooms or in rooms that have rapid heat changes like kitchens. If you're looking for a towel rail to put in one of these spaces then it's important to go for a material that works best for these situations.

This is where stainless steel towel rails come in. Stainless steel is a metal alloy that is highly conductive so it holds heat longer than other materials, and the main reason why they’re popular is because they are resistant to corrosion, rust, peeling and staining. This makes these stainless steel towel radiators highly useful in bathrooms, kitchens and utility or laundry rooms. They only require minimum maintenance which is another benefit of stainless steel.

Other highly popular materials used for heated towel rails are chrome and aluminium. They are both extremely affordable and have quick heat up times. Though they don’t have the resistance that stainless steel has, they are a great alternative if you're on a budget.

What Size Do I Need?

If you have a small bathroom (or another space), a heated towel rail should be sufficient to provide enough warmth for the room to stay nicely heated. In terms of the size that you require, a lot will be determined by the size of the room. To work out exactly which towel radiator you need, we have created a free to use BTU calculator. Simply enter your room's information and view the radiators best suited to you and your space.

What Does Dual Fuel Mean?

A dual fuel towel radiator is adapted to be used on both the central heating system and the main electrical supply. By doing this you can heat your towel rail without having to turn your central heating on. Having an electric heated towel rail is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.
