Heated towel rails are the latest trend adding another element of luxury to your bathroom renovation. In most 5 star hotels and newly designed homes, heated towel rails are a common addition that you’ll find in the bathroom. These heated items are almost becoming an essential bathroom inclusion, so we thought we’d tell you all about them!


There’s nothing worse than waking up on a cold morning and jumping into a hot shower, wrapping yourself in a cold towel and feeling instantly cold again! With a heated towel rail, this problem is non-existent. By including a decent sized towel rail in your bathroom, not only will it keep your towels warm, but it will even warm up your bathroom.


While they are designed to heat your towels, they also provide health benefits, which is overly important as the bathroom is a place where germs may breed if it is not thoroughly dried. By installing a heated towel rail, not only will you have warm towels, the warming feature reduces towel drying time, allowing less time for bacteria to spread.


Heated towel rails come in different shapes and sizes, adding that extra bit of style to the room. There’s 3 main styles of heated towel rails to choose from, a wall mounted, floor mounted and freestanding rails. Ask our design team about which styles you can include in your bathroom design.


So, you’re probably thinking these towel rails sound great, but what extra costs will you need to consider? According to Synergy Energy, using one towel rail at 100w is going to cost you just under $140 a year to run on top of your annual electrical expenses. Obviously give or take depending on how long you keep it on for and whether you choose to use it in the warmer months. However, to have a healthier bathroom, a warm towel and bathroom in winter, and a luxurious addition to your bathroom, we’d say that there’s value in that!


If you are considering a heated towel rail as a feature in your upcoming renovation, let your design consultant know at the beginning of your renovation journey! This allows our team to use smart design to hide any wires and power cords, making the installation seamless.
