Why a Towel Warmer is Perfect for Winter

A warm shower or bath is always nice, but particularly in the winter, it can turn a mediocre day into a good one. Towel warmers may seem like simple accessories for a bathroom, yet they can have a surprisingly positive impact on the bathing experience. Don’t overlook the humble towel warmer when upgrading a bathroom for comfortable winter.
Drier and Cleaner Towels
The biggest benefit of using a towel warmer is faster and more complete drying of all towels. Everything from a small washcloth to a full-sized bath sheet is easily dried with a large enough towel warmer. Even in the summer, towels can take days to dry out due to the high humidity in most bathrooms and a lack of circulation when they’re hung or folded. The heated bars or panels of the towel warmer dry up all the moisture within a few hours, keeping the towels cleaner and more hygienic.
Don’t discount the comfort of a little extra heat when bathing in the winter, especially when relaxing in an open tub. Many towel warmers function specifically as space heaters, with special modes to circulate additional warmth through the room. Even models not designed for actual heating still add a little heat that makes a difference on the coldest days. Look for a towel warmer designed for constant operation to get the best room-warming benefit.
Bathroom Odor Control
Just as with towels, warm bathrooms dry out faster after each use. Cleaner towels and drier bathroom walls all add up to a better-smelling bathroom that doesn’t have mildew growth. Whether homeowners choose freestanding, mounted, plug-in, or hardwired towel warmers, they’ll see benefits all winter long.
