FIVE REASONS TO INVEST IN A HEATED TOWEL RAIL THIS WINTER
To many homeowners, heated towel rails are seen as an unnecessary bathroom accessory. A feature only seen in modern homes for people with more money than sense. We however are set to disprove this theory and give you 5 reasons why a heated towel rail is a must-have bathroom accessory this winter:
1. FOR HYGIENE
Contrary to popular belief, heated towel rails were actually not designed to keep your towels warm. They were designed to keep them dry. The warmth is a pleasant side-effect, even more so in winter. Moisture encourages growth of germs and mould not just on the towel but in the bathroom as a whole. So keeping towels dry prevents this from happening.
2. IMPROVES THE AESTHETICS OF YOUR HOME
This reason is purely for looks. Having a beautiful contemporary towel rail in your bathroom as opposed to a boring old railing looks so much better and adds value to your space.
We love the Jeeves Quadro P towel rail:
3. REFLECT YOUR PERSONAL STYLE
Heated towel rails these days allow you to create a space that reflects your personal style. New designs on the market include gorgeous matt black, matte brushed silver and antique rose gold rails that offer a beautiful contemporary or more traditional look to your space especially if you tie this in with the rest of your bathroom / home décor.
Our favourites are the Jeeves Tangent L in matt black and the Jeeves Spartan Nine in Rose Gold (not exact specs featured in the images)
4. ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Many people will argue that keeping a heated towel rail on all day and night is a complete waste of energy. The opposite is actually true – modern heated towel rails use a very small amount if energy. When referring to the Jeeves range of heated towel rails, even whilst on, the Automatic Heating Technology (AHT) ensures that the towel rails do not necessarily draw power. This intelligent cyclical consumption pattern results in impressive energy savings where electricity consumption of an average sized model is equivalent to that of a standard light bulb!
No matter the size and style of your bathroom, you will always find a heated towel rail which is right for you. Smaller models can be used in guest toilets, while larger versions can be found for full-sized bathrooms.
With the options of freestanding, wall, floor and glass mounting, heated towel rails can be accommodated in almost any position in the bathroom. All our Jeeves models come standard with concealed wiring on either the bottom left- or right-hand side. Plus an IPX5 rating on the Jeeves heated towel rails allows for safe installation in Zone 1 of the bathroom, which includes the wall area around water outlets and above the bath.
Our favourite space savers are the Jeeves Tangent M design and the Jeeves Tangent X freestanding heated towel rail.
