Getting out of the shower or a relaxing bath and having your towel or robe ready to wrap you up all cosy and warm is one of the greatest pleasures you can experience during the coldest months of the year. Different shapes and designs for heated towel rails, an element that is intended to drive away moisture from fabrics, keeps the bathroom warm and decorates the room.
How a heated towel rail works
The towel rails can be divided into three main categories:
Towel heater size
The number of people using the bathroom should be taken into consideration when deciding on the towel rail. Heated towel rails that are wider and have more slots are a good option when three or more people use the bathroom. If, on the other hand, the bathroom is used by one or two people, a smaller towel rail is preferred.
Where to mount a heated towel rail?
To install a towel heater, the only thing you need is a free wall in the bathroom. This will depend on the dimensions of the room and the layout of the furniture and the different fittings.
It is common to mount the heated towel rail above the toilet. Another place where it can be installed is next to the washbasin, provided we respect the minimum safety distance from the washbasin and the bathtub (60 centimetres). This option will allow us to dry our hands using a warm towel.
How high up should the heated towel rail be mounted in the bathroom?
Heated towel rails are usually mounted at shoulder height, allowing users to easily grab towels and robes. The standard height is 1.5 metres, although it is important that the measurement suits the height of the users, ensuring ease of use.
The perfect towel rail design
Towel heaters enhance comfort and warmth in the bathroom, as well as being an additional decorative element. With this in mind, the different shapes and finishes of the heated towel rails by Noken elevate the interior design of the space.
