Appliances: Towel Warmers


Appliances: Towel Warmers

January 12, 2009

I was introduced to the delights of towel warmers when I lived in London. For some reason, they are not as common in the US, even though they can heat your bathroom as well as your towels. If you’re not doing a bath renovation with new plumbing and wiring, consider a simple electric warmer requiring only an outlet.

Accommodates four large towels; $490.95.
