There’s no denying that towel rails are generally thought of a bathroom product, and while we’re firm believers that everyone should have a towel rail in their bathroom, there’s another room that’s just as deserving of a stylish, warming and sophisticated towel rail. That’s right, the kitchen!
What on Earth are You on About?
Confused? Bear with us. Kitchen towel rails can be used for tea towels and oven mitts. Forget clogging up drawers with every tea towel you’ve ever bought, a kitchen towel rail is a stylish way to both store and heat your towels.
We all know that towel rails hanging on the oven can get in the way, and storing them in drawers means they’re very unlikely to dry properly before their next use. A kitchen tea towel rail will have your tea towels organised in no time at all.
Not only that, a stunning kitchen towel rail will impress guests and add a modern vibe to your kitchen, while keeping the room warm and cosy even in chiliest of temperatures.
What Kind of Towel Radiators?
‘What next?’, we can hear you thinking, ‘a toilet in the kitchen?’. Alas no, although that at least would be unique. But a kitchen towel rail doesn’t have to be the ‘traditional’ towel rail you usually see in the bathroom. We’ve got a whole range of kitchen towel rails, from the weird and wacky designed to liven up your kitchen in a way only a towel rail can, to gorgeous contemporary chrome models that add that little touch of sophistication.
The Not-So-Subtle Approach
In true Only Radiators fashion, we’ll start things off with a bang. These are the towel rails you’d usually expect to see in a bathroom, but you’ll soon come to adore the practicality and beauty of having one in the kitchen.
A ladder towel rail is great in the kitchen as it can hold multiple towels at once, while heating larger rooms with ease. The Crosswater Levante Heated Towel Rail is our top pick. This has a contemporary design that suits any modern kitchen, and it’s powered by both electricity and central heating - so you can heat your towels in warmer months without turning your entire heating system on. Durable, affordable and available in 2 gorgeous finishes, this towel rail might just be what your kitchen is missing. It comes with a 10 year guarantee.
For a slightly more innovative kitchen towel rail, let’s take a look at Crosswater Seattle. This comes with ample space for storing towels so is ideal for busy kitchens. Meanwhile, the contemporary and compact design won’t take up valuable kitchen space. This wall mounted tea towel rail is practical, beautiful and will heat a larger room with ease. The choice of black or white finishes is the cherry on top.
The Phoenix Lift is our final recommendation for more ‘recognisable’ looking towel rails. This boasts a sleek panel design alongside 6 curved rails which make it perfect for hanging multiple towels. The sophisticated anthracite finish will bring a touch of class to any kitchen, while the bold design is sure to get people talking - in a good way! Complete with a 5 year guarantee, this is a towel rail that just keeps on giving!
A More Subtle Approach
If you’re after something that looks less like a bathroom towel rail and more like, well, something that actually belongs in the kitchen, look no further. Vertical radiators in the kitchen is a trend that continues to grow, so if you fancy something a little more subtle, you’re in the right place.
The Phoenix Deckon Vertical Designer Radiator offers a more understated way to heat the kitchen and store your tea towels. The design is simply stunning, but also low key and contemporary. The double panel design means it’ll heat larger kitchens with ease, and it’s made from energy efficient aluminium. Both the white and anthracite finishes look beautiful paired with virtually any colour scheme.
Fancy a little more hanging space? The Phoenix Chrome Kitchen Towel Rail can be purchased separately and will transform the Phoenix Deckon into the perfect tea towel holder!
Next up is the Phoenix Eon Wall Mounted Radiator, can you tell we’re big fans of Phoenix? This comes in a white or anthracite finish and is extremely energy efficient. It’ll heat big or small kitchens with ease, and pairs will with any colour scheme. The Phoenix Chrome Towel Rail goes beautifully with this vertical kitchen radiator, transforming it into something that’s both aesthetic and immensely practical.
Let’s Take it Back
A contemporary chrome kitchen towel rail is all very well if you have a kitchen to match, but what about those of us with traditional kitchens? Well, there’s no reason you can’t have a traditional style towel rail to store your tea towels and warm your kitchen. Nothing is off limits when it comes to kitchen decor (okay, so perhaps a few things are off limits), and you’ll soon see that even traditional kitchens can be given a style boost with a towel rail.
The Phoenix Anne Traditional Towel Radiator is one such example. This boasts a stunning traditional design and can be wall mounted in your kitchen to save space. The mirror like finish and compact construction make it perfect for smaller kitchens as it’ll open up the space with ease. It comes with a 5 year guarantee, although we doubt you will need it as the quality of this lovely model is top notch.
Floor mounted towel rails are often suited to more traditional rooms, and there’s no reason not to have one in your kitchen. The Butler & Rose Homage Heated Towel Rail has ample space for tea towels thanks to the lovely open space at the front. The stunning period design is a welcome addition to any kitchen, while the combination of bright white and super shiny chrome is a style statement in itself. Tempted? This comes with a 10 year guarantee which might just sway you!
Another great pick is the multi functional Butler & Rose traditional heated wall mount towel rail which is ideal for smaller spaces.
