A reliable heated towel rail for the summer cottage

A cool, dew-kissed morning, calm lake surface and a warm bath towel draped over your shoulders – the picture of a perfect summer morning. Add a reliable, streamlined heated towel rail and you can enjoy such mornings at the summer cottage every day of the year.

Summer cottages are a place for swimming, saunas and outdoor activities. According to an old Finnish proverb, “What summer soaks, it also dries.” Or does it?

The old proverb is true – usually. Finnish summers get a lot of rain, but the sun and refreshing winds usually quickly dry up the remnants of a rainfall. But that is not always enough. Downpours can take us by surprise, and even in Finland the humidity can at times be so high that it seems everything takes too long to dry. In particular, thick terry cloth towels, while handy at the beach, take a really long time to dry in already humid summer weather. The shower rooms at summer cottages, dressing rooms in beachside saunas and even outbuildings also from time to time need a place where many items can be dried, no matter what the weather.

Every cottage could use a heated towel rail

If you intend to build or renovate a holiday home, think about items that could make things easier already in the planning phase. A simple and timeless heated towel rail is perfect for a summer cottage’s sauna dressing room. If shiny chrome strikes you as too modern for a sauna building, you can opt for a towel rail tinted in the same colour as the wall: the heated towel rail will be made according to your specifications. The heated rail will also bring warmth to the space.

If an outbuilding or recreation space has electricity, installing a heated towel rail is a breeze. All you need is a few screws and an electrical outlet. Electric towel rails can be unplugged or disconnected from the power source if the building is left unheated over winter.

A heated towel rail brings an added touch of comfort to many routine tasks and all kinds of spaces at summer cottages.
