Steel offers the lowest price tag compared to other materials, but it also offers the most diversity in terms of colour and style. Steel is a highly durable material which is important as towel rails are going to be the victims of some knocks and bangs over time and you want them to withstand that. Style
The straight ladder towel rail has been a firm favourite for many years in the bathroom radiator world. The ladder name signifies the run of horizontal tubes connected by two vertical tubes (these are called collectors). “Straight” – sometimes known as flat, simply means that the horizontals bars run straight across between collectors and when looking at the towel rail from the side, it is completely flat. So, they are great for compact bathrooms where every millimeter counts. Colour
Chrome has a reflective, mirrored finish makes it a popular choice for bathrooms. It adds a touch of shine and sparkle in the room and can mesh with your chrome taps and showers perfectly. Just like mirrors, a chrome towel rail can make a bathroom feel bigger – that’s right, a towel rail and an optical illusion! Heat Source
