How To Decorate Your Bathroom With Heated Towel Rails

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
How to decorate your bathroom? That's the question which comes in mined when you have decide to redecorate your entire house or just part of your home, the spotlight may be on the living room or bedroom, since these are the areas you spend most of your time in. But don’t forget that the bathroom, in today’s busy lifestyle, has become a place of retreat in the house. After a long hard day’s work, there’s nothing better than a hot shower or a dip in a foam filled tub of water. And in the modern bathroom, a heated towel railing has become a necessity, in terms of function and aesthetics. Wrapping yourself in a hot, dry, cozy towel after you step out of the shower is the ultimate luxurious experience. A heated towel rail provides you with that advantage of not just drying your towels, which will mean fewer germs that love to breed in damp or soggy towels, but also heating up your bathroom to the perfect temperature for your showers to become an everyday experience you look forward to.
What you'll need: 
Types Of Heated Towel Rails
For the perfect investment, you will need to do a bit of homework. Search online or sift through plumbing company brochures for the ideal heated towel rail. There are a few things that need to be taken into consideration before you make a choice. There are three kinds of towel rails, in terms of fuel sources. A plumbed-in heated towel railing is directly connected to the central plumbing system of your home. It can be activated only when the entire system is running. Although this option is cheaper, with the appliance running on gas, this might cause a problem if you want to switch it on during an unexpected cold, rainy night in the summer months. An electric towel railing, however, can work for you all year long and all you need is an outlet to plug in the switch. A third option is a dual-fuel system which encompasses both electric and plumbed-in features.
Your choice on the design and style of the heated towel rail can make or break the whole bathroom’s décor. Would you prefer a wall-mounted one or free standing? Keep in mind the size of your bathroom and whether you have kids in the house, who might trip over or accidently touch a hot railing. In that case, a wall-mounted towel railing would be a great idea. Personally, I think they look more elegant and save space too.
Heated towel rail designs come in two categories. Going with whatever the theme of your bathroom is, you can choose between a contemporary and a traditional heated towel rail. If you have classic home, a Victorian-era inspired Traditional Heated Towel Rail will blend in nicely with the rest of your bathroom furnishings. But if you have a modernist feel to your bathroom, there is no shortage of Designer Heated Towel Rails, which come in the most glamorous of designs. A designer heated towel rail is the ideal choice if what you are looking for is a minimalist look. A pure black railing or one with wooden flat panels will radiate class, along with the heat that they emit!
So, after a little research, make some wise decisions and bring warmth and joy right into your bathroom to make your showers an everyday pleasure!
