Fitting Electric Towel Rails In The Bathroom

Posted on January 19th 2017 by Kieren Chambers

When it comes to bathroom radiators, towel rails are a highly popular alternative to the traditional approach.

They can be installed just as easily but are often more efficient and practical for use in the bathroom, since they provide a convenient storage solution for your towels. They’re also heated at the perfect time, so you can be comfortably warm when you get out of the bath or shower, even on a cold day. Electric towel warmers in particular can also be highly efficient.
