Traditional Heated Towel Rail
Victorian Radiators - Traditional Heated Towel Rails for your Period Bathroom
Until about a century ago, bathrooms were purely functional in nature. A bathroom just had to be clean and hygienic, and people didn’t really bother too much about the design and aesthetics. However, things have come a long way since then. Now, bathrooms require equal attention in terms of interior design, so much so that every possible effort is made to align the architectural theme of the bathroom to the rest of the house. For instance, if your house bears a Victorian period theme, the same will be reflected in the architectural design in the bathroom as well.
Individual components of a bathroom play an important role in creating a period Victorian ambience. A Victorian bathroom would typically have a free-standing bath tub along a fireplace, a Victorian style chair, an antique mirror and a traditional heated towel rail. Typically, you would imagine that a heated towel rail is too modern for a Victorian style bathroom and might feel out of place. However, you would be surprised to find out that Victorian radiators are specifically designed to incorporate historical elements of that period like chrome legs or exquisite metal work.
Just like other elements of a modern day bathroom, a towel rail isn’t just about its functional aspect. Of course, it performs an important function - it keeps your towels warm and keeps the bathroom cozy at large. However, the best part about towel rails is that they are available in a huge variety of designs, right from period Victorian style to modern and edgy designs. They are so dynamic in nature that they can effortlessly incorporate diverse design elements. As a result, you can easily find a towel rail that suits the overall design of your bathroom.
While looking for the perfect Victorian radiator for your bathroom, make sure that it blends in with other components like the bathtub, the basin and the plumbing design. Thanks to the huge range of designs, you should be able to find a towel rail which complements your bathroom at large. At the same time, also consider the colour scheme. Victorian bathrooms usually follow a black and white colour theme with dashes of deep burgundy or violet; make sure that towel rail isn’t too jarring in terms of its colour. Usually, a white towel rail works best with a Victorian style bathroom.
Traditional heated towel rail
A traditional heated towel rail is a welcome sight in almost any bathroom. Not only can traditional towel rails provide comfort and convenience, they can also inject a burst of class and style into the room. There are many different traditional heated towel rails available, meaning that you can easily pick out one that suits both your budget and your bathroom style.
There are many issues to consider when deciding which traditional towel rail is right for you. Firstly, there's the question of size and finding one that will fit properly into your bathroom. Trade Plumbing have a range of different sizes across different styles, so whether you want a traditional heated towel rail that's high and thin, one that's wide and low, or just something to match the size and shape of what you already have, we'll be able to satisfy you. Design and appearance is another important consideration when choosing between traditional towel rails. One of the key questions here is whether you want to choose one that has a radiator combined with it, or one that consists solely of metal rails. If you're looking to place a traditional towel rail in a location where there currently already is a radiator, then this allows to have the best of both worlds in combining rail and radiator. However, if the room already has a radiator in a separate location, then you may find that you don't need the additional heating and a simple set of rails will suffice.
What about functionality of traditional heated towel rails?
Functionality can also be an important consideration when deciding between traditional heated towel rails. When making your selection, it's important to consider how many towels are going to be needing space on it. Our range of different sizes can be very helpful here, as it means you don't have to compromise on the style you want. One other issue that might not have occurred to you is the question of colour. When people think of traditional heated towel rails, they often expect them to be metallic silver or white like radiators. Traditional towel rails with radiators are available from us in a range of different colours, and this can give you a great opportunity to either add some colour into your bathroom, or add in something that matches the colours you're already using there.
Installing a traditional heated towel rail can be a tricky job, as it requires dealing with your heating system and removing heavy existing parts such as radiators. While someone with extensive DIY experience and tools may be able to manage it, most jobs like this will require a trained plumber or engineer to be sure that any new devices are installed correctly and safely.
If you're installing a traditional towel rail where there isn't currently any heating installation, then you may need other works carried out to enable it to be fitted. Consult a professional for advice as to what can be achieved.
