Help to achieve your bathroom improvements

Including heated towel rails/radiators in your bathroom design is not as difficult as it may seem.  Dependent on whether you're relocating bathroom fittings, it is relatively easy to replace fittings that are remaining in the same location with newer versions as the pipe work is already installed cutting down costs in labour.  However if you intend on re-locating your fixture and fittings, there are lots of options available to receive support to carry out your bathroom improvements.  There is a huge range of advice resources available via bathroom installers, do it yourself advice guides and of course Interior designers.

Types of heated towel rail/radiators

Designing your bathroom enables you to control the type of heating you desire from standard gas central heating radiators to designer or traditional heated towel rails or radiators and the choices made, should be personal to you and your household.  This post looks specifically at heating from the angle of heated towel rail/radiators, however having considered the needs of your household and size of your project and budget, you might prefer to install underfloor heating.
