Towel Warmer Rack

Towel warmer racks are luxury items that originated in Europe. Towel warming racks turn your ordinary bathroom into a spa-like environment, and both dry and warm your towels. Also, the rack provides sanitized and hygienic towels for use. After every bath you can pamper yourself with fresh aromatic towels. There’s nothing nicer than stepping out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a toasty towel. Hang it along or in pairs and make a style statement while adding comfort and convenience to your daily routine. The towel warmer is bound to take a place of pride on the wall and become a focal point in its own right. They come in a variety of styles and price ranges and though there are a variety of styles to choose from, there are really only two ways to warm towels.

The simplest method to warm towels is with an electric towel warming rack: you just plug the cord into an electrical outlet. These electric warmers are filled with oil, with a filament inside to heat the oil. As the oil becomes warm, it heats the towel rails, which in turn heat the towels. These types of warmers use low power so they are safe and energy efficient. The rails are tightly sealed, so there is no danger of the hot oil spilling out and burning someone. While towel heaters can reach 160 degree F, they never burn the towels.

The second method is hydronic. The "hydro" in the word means water. Hydronic towel warmers use hot water to heat the rails. These warmers connect to a home’s hot water heating system. A pump is needed to circulate the hot water through the rails. Towel Warmers connected to the hot water heater are continuously warmed. If your hydronic warmer connects to the hot water heating system, then your towels are warmed every time the house is heated. With this type of heating system in the summer, you need a special pump and a separate heating tube to warm the towel rails with hot water.

There is a great variety of towel racks in the market today. Some are free-standing and portable. Others are built-in or mounted to the wall or to the floor. The modern, stainless steel towel warmer radiator boasts a five-rung design that increases in depth from the base to the top, forming an airing shelf with plenty storage for a stack of rolled or folded towels. The number of rails ranges from one to eight or more. The modular styling of the radiator means that you can pick from one to four panels to make up the towel warmer.

People buying towel warming racks also get to choose the finish to fit their bathroom decor or style. Finishes include nickel, stainless steel, brass, bronze and gold. Some rails are coated with paint in a range of colors. Other options include the addition of a shelf or two to the warming rack. The latest feature is aromatherapy essential oils added to one of the rails to give the towels and the bathroom a nice scent. There are also warmers which make use of LED technology to emit bright and welcoming light which turns your bathroom into an exquisite spa.
