What You Need to Know About Fitting a Traditional Towel Rail in Your Home

By Edward Hall Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

You should consider fitting a traditional towel rail in your bathrooms, shower rooms and downstairs cloakrooms. They can offer a number of benefits to your home and are available in lots of different designs and sizes.

If you are considering a traditional towel rail then here are just a few things you need to know before you get started.

1. Benefits of Traditional Towel Rails

These useful devices enable you to warm rooms on a low, economic heat. This provides not only comfort for you and your family but also helps to prevent dampness and mould. Of course you can also dry towels on these rails which is a convenient option for bathrooms.

Traditional towel rails are ideal for busy households to ensure your wet rooms are kept warm and there are dry towels available at all times.

2. Choosing the Right Design

You will want to choose a traditional towel rail that looks good and fits well into the room. Bathroom and shower rooms are typically tight on space. There are a wide range of traditional towel rails available including streamline options that will fit into small spaces.

- You will need to choose a design that will heat the size of the room effectively.

- If you are unsure what size you need consult a heating engineer for more advice

- Measure the space available to help make sure the towel rail does not intrude into the room.

- There are lots of colours and finishes available. This gives you a great range of choice to pick the perfect look for your existing décor.

3. Positioning the Towel Rail

It is important to position your new towel rail carefully. You will need to make sure it is functional in the room and easy to access. Avoid putting towel rails behind doors as this can block the door from opening properly (particularly once the rail is full of towels). Keep the towel rail as far away from the shower, bath, sink and toilet as possible to keep access to these areas.

4. Maintenance

Traditional towel rails need very little maintenance. Once they are installed they should continue to work for many years without any need for servicing or repairs. These radiators can get dusty though so you will need to wipe them down now and again with a damp cloth.

5. Installation

You can install a traditional towel rail yourself if you have good basic DIY skills. These radiators will come with some basic installation guidelines. However if you are not confident you have the skills to make a good job of installing your new traditional towel rail then you should call in the professionals. A plumber or specialist heating engineer will be able to help you with the installation and ensure it has been carried out to a high standard.
