How to choose the best radiator for your bathroom



The bathroom is one of, if not THE most important room in the house. It is where we start and end each day, it’s the space where we can be free and where inspiration strikes the most. We get all of our best ideas in the shower right? Because the bathroom has so much potential for what it can do for you, you want to make sure you can heat your bathroom correctly, so that you can relax properly and easily. Nobody likes stepping out of the shower or bath into a freezing cold room. Here are some things to consider when choosing the best radiator for your bathroom.

There are 3 major types of radiators for the bathroom, so it is important to be aware of these:


These types of radiators are plumbed into your existing central heating system and will work like any other radiator in the house.


Electric radiators are great for smaller spaces. They are plugged into a separate outlet or wired into the mains by a qualified electrician.


Duel fuel radiators are suitable for all year round. They use the central heating system in the autumn and winter months, then use the electric output through spring and summer.

There are many things to consider when deciding on what type of radiator you need, such as size, location, placement, material, etc.



Size matters! A radiator too big will dominate the room, too small and it won’t have sufficient heat in the winter months.



The material of the radiator is important to consider as a good quality material will not rust in the damp atmosphere of the bathroom. Most central heating radiators are made from mild steel, which whilst affordable, may not be the best material for rooms with high moisture levels. Stainless steel is the better option as it offers better protection for wetrooms and bathrooms. We recommend opting for a high-quality chrome. The Redroom Elan Curved Heated Towel Rail Radiator is a great option.

For smaller spaced bathrooms, a heated towel rail may be sufficient enough to heat the bathroom. The Redroom Omnia Heated Towel Rail Radiator will make a striking focal point in your bathroom. The radiator features distinctive ladder-style horizontal tube rails that give you plenty of space to hang several towels. The rail’s impressive heat output means it can even help you to keep your bathroom at a steady, cozy temperature. This radiator offers a 5-year guarantee, made from high-quality material and engineering.
