The bathroom is arguably the most important room in the house. It is the only place where you can really lock yourself away and get a little rest and relaxation. As a result, you want your bathroom hideaway to be as perfect as possible. Bathroom heating is one of the ways by which you can achieve this. With the array of bathroom heating options available, it’s easy to make your bathroom a warm, cozy environment. Here, I will outline the different types of bathroom heating, and why they are so good.

Heated Towel Rails

Crisp, warm towels are an essential part of any bathroom. Stepping out of a bath or shower into freezing cold air can quickly destroy the relaxed feeling you built up when submerged in the water. This is why heated towel rails are so important. These rails have a double-purpose, in that they act as a radiator, warming cool air, whilst also warming towels to toasty perfection. They’re available in a huge range of designs, fit to satisfy both modern and traditional interior design tastes. From traditional and chunky to sleek and modern to artistic designer products, heated towel rails are not only efficient, but part of the bathrooms interior design scheme.

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is a subtle yet effective bathroom heating option. This luxurious addition will keep your feet warm all winter and is a must have in any quality bathroom. With underfloor heating in the bathroom, liquid on the floor dries quicker, so you won’t have any nasty slips or falls as a result. Another advantage of underfloor heating is that the heating mats needed are easy to install, and can be laid under a number of different flooring surfaces, ceramic and porcelain tiling, or even natural stone.


Radiators are no longer simply useful heating additions to the bathroom; they are now stylish fittings that contribute greatly to the tone and overall appearance of the room. For the modern bathroom that keeps up with the latest trends, there are a huge range of options to choose from. One of the best is the stylish vertical radiator. These are particularly good when in block colors that contrast against the background, which creates a nice feature piece. For more traditional bathroom designs, towel radiators are a great way to complete the appearance. In particular, towel radiators with a white column insert and silver piping are fantastic additions and truly give traditional bathrooms that classic, timeless appearance.
