Towel radiators for stylish and cosy bathroom bliss

Classic and contemporary towel radiator designs to leave you high and dry.

We love a multi-tasking marvel, which is why we’re huge fans of towel radiators.

The best towel radiators not only keep your towels toasty, they also make sure your bathroom is cosy for that all-important moment you step out of the shower – you can get enveloped with warm air before drying off with a balmy towel.

Styles and specifications of heated towel rails have come on leaps and bounds, and there’s plenty of chic options to choose from.

If you prefer a traditional design, Victoria Plum is your one-stop shop. Its Dulwich towel rail offers a contemporary take on a lovely traditional design.

Looking for something a bit different? Look to Crosswater and Frontline Bathrooms – both offer unique, modern designs for the home.

If you’re willing to splash out (see what we did there?), look to luxury designs by the likes of Aestus (think chunky warm quartz finishes in a size that fits ALL towels, from hand to bath), and Catchpole and Rye, whose Mercantile arched ladder towel rail is the last word in elegance.

Choose a radiator with plenty of hanging space if you’ve got a big family (or just love a fluffy towel or five), and also think about the finish. Polished brass looks lovely against a concrete or grey background, while chrome offers a sleek, timeless look.

On the practical side, you can choose whether your towel radiator is ‘floating’ or not, so whether the valves and pipes come through the floor or the wall. You can choose manual valves, where you simply turn the valve to the required heat output, or you can often opt for thermostatic valves with temperature settings.

We’ve picked out the best towel radiators for you for cool yet cosy bathroom chic…
