The bathroom is the place from which most of our days normally start or end. This as we take that refreshing shower either to start the day or before going to bed. As far as bathroom accessories go, the towel rail should be right up there with the most important ones. And this is not only because of the uses of the accessory, but also due to the fact that if chosen well. It can be the perfect finishing touch your bathroom needs to look exquisite.
But what makes a good towel rail?
Well, firstly, we need to consider the material used in making the rail. It should have some common features the most common being that it should be rust resistant. Therefore no iron rails here. We would not want you to discover rust spots on your spotless white towels now would we? Also good rails are light with smooth curved edges. This arguing well with their use and how we pull towels of them. Were they to have rough surfaces so many towels would have been ripped by now.
Wooden or Metallic?
Indeed which one’s better? Wooden rails have been used for very many years now but metallic rails are slowly taking over in many a people’s bathrooms. This because of the durability of the metals involved to which the wooden racks fades in comparison. The metallic bars are also easier to clean as due to the clean shiny surfaces, slight wiping is all it takes to get rid of the dirt. Additionally, the metallic rails can be said to be more sustainable, particularly in this day and age where environmental conservation is taking center stage in the many aspects of human life.
And the design is important too.
In keeping with the aesthetics of you bathroom, the design of the towel racks can either be the last piece of the puzzle with regards to complementing the overall bathroom design, or fail miserably in the attempt to do so. Such aspects as the positioning of the rack, height from the floor as well as number of racks and whether it’s a double or single rack will all be factors in considering if it’s spot on or not.
