The Best Towel Rails To Maximise Space In Your Bathroom

When it comes to contemporary bathroom design, towel rails are often preferred over standard radiators – and we can see why. There’s nothing better than stepping out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a warm, fluffy towel. Towel rails are a smart, space-saving addition to bathrooms, offering not only practicality but a sleek, designer look. Plus, the warmth from a heated towel rail provides extra heat in your bathroom, creating a cosy environment on even the chilliest of days.

'Bathrooms tend to have limited space available but the last thing you want in the colder months is for the room to be freezing,' says Simon Morris, marketing manager at The Radiator Company. 'If you'd love the comfort of toasty warm towels when you step out from the bath, and would like to keep the chill off the room as a whole, consider investing in a towel rail.

'Space is often a consideration when choosing a towel rail but you also need to ensure you have enough hanging space on the rail to accommodate everyone's towels. One of the first things you need to ask yourself is how many people use the bathroom, and how many towels are you likely to have?'

When investing in a towel rail, watch out for where the wall hanging brackets are located, Simon warns: 'Brackets often sit between the cross bars at the back and limit the hanging space down the middle for damp towels. Look for ranges with brackets on the outside collectors to increase hanging space.'

From ladder towel rails to traditional cast iron towel rails, and even compact designs for a smaller bathroom, there's a plethora of styles on offer. Towel rails also come in various forms, such as electric, dual fuel and even freestanding.
