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.
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.
