Luxury #3: Towel Warmers

Ah, mornings. Your bed’s so warm, the room’s chilly, it’s such a struggle to get out of bed. You’ve spent many-a-times lugging your blankets into the bathroom with you, haven’t you? Well we’ve got great news for you – warm towels!

If you live in London or Paris, you probably already know the wonders of a towel warmer. A huge hit in Europe, not only are they the single most stylish bathroom accessory we can think of, but also surprisingly practical.

If you were looking for a way to add warmth to your bathroom during the winter, or you simply dread that cold rush of air when you step out of the shower, forget about a heater–a towel warmer is much more chic.

6 Unique Luxuries For Your Home

Expect to pay about $1000 to $5000 or more for a towel warmer, plus installation. They come in a variety of finishes from chrome to satin nickel to gold, which accounts for the price range. If you’re thinking that these prices look a bit steep for a bathroom accessory, remember that these durable and often heavy units will gracefully replace your current heater while saving you money on your electricity bill. Using only as much electricity as a regular light bulb, most towel warmers are meant to be wired directly into the wall (although we wired ours to a regular electrical plug, as a portable alternative.)

The right towel warmer will effortlessly and single-handedly give a room style, and will probably last for generations.

Portable towel warmer models are more manageable and don’t require any special wiring, which makes them the best choice for someone who moves often or rents. Sleek and elegant, these models generate a considerable amount of heat while still featuring thin and streamlined bars. Emitting just the right amount of heat to make a small to medium sized bathroom cozy throughout the winter, a portable model is easy to move and could be put in a guest bathroom to hold hand towels for special parties or events.

A stylish towel warmer can single-handedly give your bathroom the feeling of a luxurious spa. Imagine stepping out of the shower every morning to and wrapping yourself with a toasty warm bath towel or robe. Almost makes you wish it was 8:30am, doesn’t it? We can’t think of a better way to start the day.

    Those high-end knives would definitely make cooking a breeze. I bet it would also motivate me to cook more and experiment with new recipes. I’d feel like a chef in the making!! Just gotta watch out and hopefully, I don’t lose any fingers in the process. Those look really sharp. What I also love about those stainless steel knives is that they’re easy to clean and won’t harbor mold on their handles. I hate it when that happens because I know that I have to dispose of it to prevent the mold spores from getting in my food.

      I hate it when that happens. Especially with plastic handles. It’s gross.

    Warm towels sound nice! I think it would also be good as it can help in drying the towels as well.

    I love my essential oils diffuser but I’m curious about these home fragrances from Agraria. I always see this bamboo reed diffusers but I find that thescent disappears quickly, I wonder if Agraria makes quality ones.

    Sorry but I don’t think I want to replace my heater with a towel warmer. I could have both but taking the heater out would make me freeze to death. I’m a person who gets cold so easily and I find it unbearable to be too cold. I think I’d want heated floors instead… Lol…! Sometimes, even my carpet feels too cold for me. I know that most of you will just tell me to move someplace warm, but sorry that’s not an option. More like I’m sorry to myself.?

  5. For a candle holder Rosendahl’s is quite expensive. I could easily find alternatives from H&M home.?

  6. Balushka’s works are stunning. I can’t imagine how much work she would put in for an entire wall art of flowers. It seems like the amount of money people pay her would only go to her efforts and not her supplies! Paper folding has been quite a lost artistry yet here she is, modernizing it and making big money out of it. It’s probably difficult to hire assistants in making those flowers because it would take forever to teach them how she does it flawlessly.

  7. Tried Agraria before and it was great. It wasn’t overpowering and that’s why I like it.

      Even the burning ones aren’t overpowering?

    Both the Jane Seymour and Balushka flowers are very nice. Jane’s was more of a classic floral arrangement that looks real and Balushka has a modern approach. Both look very great for interior decoration. I’m going to check out their stores. I only need small flowers for small spaces that I just want to enhance the look of.

  9. I’ve been looking for luxurious decor like Rosendahl’s for quite some time now. I have a knack for looking for decors that look really fancy in order to make my space look more “put together”.

    I’m so impressed by Balushka’s handcrafts. That is really a talent and I’m just so stunned by how classy and soft it looks. If I was to get married, it would be a garden wedding and I would love to have her creations around me, even as a bouquet at my wedding! I’ve never seen paper flowers look this good. I bet she sources the best papers for that. I’m wondering if it’s durable, but that first pic wherein it’s all over the wall is really majestic. She’s so talented.
