There is a myriad of options available which are specialised specifically for designer bathrooms, so make the most of this frequently used living space by treating it to some aesthetic beauty and optimum function and you will be rewarded yourself with a stylishly modern and convenient way of living.

Towel rail radiators are extraordinary not only for their functionality but also for the appearance of a bathroom and offer an impressive storage method, this is not only beneficial for drying damp towels but also endorses a classy appeal. They have become more and more popular over the last twenty years and now wherever you go, whether it’s a cloakroom of a top hotel or the en-suite of a family member, you are very likely to see a heated towel radiator.

The first thing you need to decide when deciding on a towel rail radiator is whether you want the standard type which runs off the central heating system, an electric towel rail which plugs into your electricity mains, or the dual-fuel type which both connects to your central heating system and to your electricity mains. If you can find central heating pipes in the bathroom then this means that you can have the standard towel rail fitted, however, if there isn't any present in the room it is advisable to call in an electrician to install it into the mains electricity. The beauty of a dual function radiator is the fact that you can run it from the heating system during winter when the heating is most frequently switched on, then in summer, when you are less likely to be using your heating system, you are able to heat it through the use of electricity.

The size and power output of the appliance is also very important to its use, to determine the size you will need to measure the distance between the inlet pipes in your bathroom if you have central heating in that room, then when purchasing your product you will need to search for the 'pipe centres' measurement which is usually displayed by the retailer. The pipe centres measurement is the distance between the two pipes on the radiator which should ideally match up fairly closely to the distance between the pipes in the bathroom. Once you have got together these details you can then be confident that you are buying the right product for your room.

As for the heat output you require for your room, it is estimated that you need 100 Watts to heat 1 square metre of floor space. To work out the wattage you require for your particular bathroom all you have to do is measure the length and width of the room and multiply them together to get the area of the room in square metres. Multiply that figure by 100 and that is the amount of Wattage you will need for that room.

One you have done your research and know exactly what you require you can get on with the fun bit of choosing the style and design to suit the interior décor.
