The Best Towel Warmers On The Market Today
One of the highest forms of luxury is being able to sustain heat even in the chilly times of winter. It may not mean a lot to some, but it can mean a lot if your home is warm and toasty in the later months of the year. The heat provided from your home is something to be enjoyed, but when use it in specific ways, a new door opens! There are items out there to increase the pleasures of everyday life just from heating up some of your favorite garments to bath sheets, towels and even removing wrinkles from pima cotton. One of those things is a towel warmer.
What is a towel warmer?
A towel warmer does exactly what the name implies—it warms your towels! No one enjoys the feel of a cold towel right after a nice, warm shower. Professional barbers and hair stylists often employ towel warmers to further comfort their patrons, whether it’s placing them on their face or placing them around their neck. Mostly imbued with electricity, metal or enclosed spaces are warmed with the electrical current or with steam. The towels inside will absorb the heat. Keep in mind that you can warm a lot more than towels—robes, sheets, and blankets are also a viable option!
They come in many different forms, whether they are containers or metal bars to better transfer heat. The containers and cabinets are easiest to deal with, considering all you have to do is plug them up and wait. Bars are sometimes more difficult—they sometimes need to be hard-wired into the wall. Electricians can do this with ease, though it might take a bit more funds to install it.
Which to choose?
It depends on preference, in all honesty. The containers can be easy to use, but the electric steel bars can supply a nice aesthetic of a towel rack in your bathroom (or hair dressing and barber shop). The towel-heating containers can warm towels easier, but it shouldn’t take more than 5-10 minutes to supply warmth to towels of different sizes. Turn your restroom into a sauna! We’ve listed a few of the best ones here.
