Before you can pick the ideal hardwired towel warmer, you'll need to consider some of the options available to you. We’ve laid them out below in a straight-forward fashion so it’s as easy as possible to get the towel warmer of your dreams.
Once you’re done learning about your options, find the towel warmer you want by using the table at the bottom of the buying guide.
Your hardwired towel warmer isn’t just a functional piece. If you so desire, your towel warmer can be an aesthetic statement that gives your home a deserved boost in class and elegance.
Alternatively, you can find a simple towel warmer that smoothly blends into your bathroom décor. Hardwired towel warmers cover a wide range of styles.
If you’re looking to have your towel warmer stand out, let your eyes feast on an ornate towel warmer with wooden trim or a bold industrial, metallic feel. For a more relaxing design, try something with curved or bowed bars. If you’re tight on space but high on style, you can even get a towel warmer with bars that swivel for maximum flexibility.
Beyond architectural design, towel warmers come in a large variety of colors. While you can already find 20 of the most popular colors and finishes on our website, we’re happy to help you place a special order for any of the 100-plus additional colors.
Whether you want your towel warmer to be the focal point of the room or a natural extension of bathroom’s layout, you’re sure to find a towel warmer that’s right for you.
Controls and Accessories
Towel warmers typically come with a default control mechanism. The most basic control is on/off, which simply allows you to flip a switch when you want to start heating up your towels.
Some include low/med/high controls, which let you adjust the temperature to three distinct levels. A select few hardwired towel warmers come with programmable controls that allow you to set custom temperatures and schedules to optimize your comfort.
Some hardwired towel warmers come with no control whatsoever and require you to purchase, at minimum, a basic on/off switch in order to complete your install. However, whether your towel warmer comes with default controls or not, advanced programmatic controls are usually available as optional accessories.
For a mix of function and style, hardwired towel warmers can be accessorized to assist with drying specific or extra materials. From robe knobs to drying racks, towel rings to towel bars, there's a way to warm all your linens.
Mounting and Dimensions
At the end of the day, what determines which towel warmer will work in your home is the space you have available. An elegant towel warmer that matches you décor is useless if you have nowhere to put it.
If you still haven’t, take some time to decide exactly where you’d like to place your towel warmer. You may want to consider the material your wall is made out of and if it can withstand the weight of a towel warmer and the wet towels that will be added to it.
It's always safer to mount the radiator on studs, if possible, to ensure stability. Once you've found a good spot, measure the height and width you have available. If the depth is a restriction for you, make sure you measure that, as well.
Select Your Towel Warmer
Use our table below to view hardwired towel warmers that fit your space. Most styles of towel warmers come in a variety of sizes, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding the right one for you in the size you need.
If you aren’t happy with the styles you find in one size, try checking one size smaller or larger. Sometimes sacrificing a few inches in height or width can give you style that will keep you smiling for years to come.

Towel Warmers for Space Heating
Since towel warmers are effectively stylized radiators, you can choose to have your towel warmer also serve as the main heat source for your bathroom. For new construction or bathrooms with poor access to the home's existing HVAC system, this might be a great option.
If you elect to go this route, make sure you size your towel warmer based on the BTU it can provide your space. To find out how many BTU/Hr you need to effectively heat your room, use our space-heating sizing tool below.
