Heated Towel Racks

There is nothing like a warm towel to give you the luxurious feeling of being pampered and soothed after bathing or showering. No longer found just in top quality hotels, heated towel hangers are readily available for the home consumer. When looking for one, here are some features to consider:

  • An adjustable thermostat to get the right degree of warmth for your comfort
  • A programmable timer to preheat and turn off the heating element if you prefer not to have it on all the time
  • Lighted indicators to show when the heater is on and the towels are warm
  • Wall mounted hangers that have a shelf for storing towels besides heating them and that can be wired so outlet slots are open for other uses
  • Freestanding hangers that can be used in other areas of the home, such as
    • in the laundry room for drying delicate clothing and swim wear you don't want to put in the dryer
    • by the outside doors to warm jackets, coats and mittens before going out in the cold weather

Heated towel hangers have two other advantages for the bathroom; in warm, humid weather, they can dry towels quicker than air-drying and prevent musty odors and mildew to keep

your towels smelling fresher; and in cold weather, the heat used to warm the towels can help heat the bathroom.
