How can you get the most out of installing a chrome towel rail in your bathroom? Let’s discover how you can always have a nice, warm and cosy towel to dry yourself whilst also having a warm bathroom.


Chrome towel rails are functional and suitable for bathrooms of all shapes and sizes. They are perfect for the family bathroom, the en suite, and even the water closet. They offer not only a drying function for your towels but are also a useful way to heat the room.

When installing a chrome towel rail, you will need to consider how it will actually provide heat in your bathroom. Firstly decide if you want to rely on the central heating or a towel rail heating element. Do you want your towel rail to act as a radiator? If so, it will need to be plumbed into your existing central heating system. Would you like your towel rail to be accessible all year round? If so, an electric towel rail allows you to turn it on and off as you please. It is also considered to be a cost-effective way to use a heated towel rail. Or would you prefer to have the best of both worlds with your towel rail? If so, there are dual fuel towel rails that allow you to use both the central heating system and the electricity in your home. Dual fuel towel rails are becoming one of the most popular choices of Towel Rails as they offer the best of both worlds.

Which Towel Rail will Best Suit your Bathroom?

Once you have decided how you will heat your towel rail, you will need to consider size and shape. Like most aspects of life, one size does not always fit all and this is true with your chrome towel rail.

In your family bathroom, there may be a lot of people accessing the space. This may then mean a lot of towels will need to be kept dry and snug for use after bathing. A large chrome towel rail like the Essential Leo Towel Warmer will be the perfect option. It has dimensions suitable for the larger bathroom and the capacity for more towels. It is also sleek and stylish in its design.

In your en suite or water closet, space is limited. It will be important for you to be able to maximise all the space that you have. To do this, a smaller chrome towel rail will be an ideal option. Not only is it a great storage solution for hanging towels but it will also be providing warmth to this small room. A compact Ronda Chrome Space Radiator will be a perfect option in this scenario.
