Towel rails, once considered a commodity to be enjoyed at a star hotel, have gained popularity quite rapidly in the recent years. The comfort of having a dry warm towel on cold days is irreplaceable. It is now a common bathroom accessory in homes and commercial establishments. This popularity itself has led to a wide range of towel rails varying in size and finish. Choosing the one that is just right for you, would need some thinking through.
The first point to consider could be the utility of the towel rail. Is it for the master bathroom, or an additional one for bedroom to keep clothes warm just before going out into the chilly weather. While the primary job of the rail is to dry and warm towels, it is also used to heat the bathroom. This revolve chrome finish rail from QS Supplies allows ample space for more number of towels (H160cm x W30cm x D31cm).
To calculate what size towel rail you need, you could use professional online radiator calculators. If the bathroom is already heated, then your requirement of the rail heat output may be proportionally reduced.
