Do I get a plug-in or hardwire?
Most heated towel rails come as hardwired option, plug in with cord or sometimes battery operated. If doing a serious renovation, it is advised to get your heated towel railed hard-wired as it will look more professional and hide power cords and electronics. This however requires the work of a licensed electrician.
If you are simply replacing your old towel rail with a new one, a plug-in is the easiest option however make sure you do not have power cords close to water or along the floor as tripping hazards.
When purchasing, it is important to take into consideration the energy costs associated. Different towel rails will provide different heat at different energy wattage. Be aware of the material that your towel rail is made out of as some will convey and retain heat better than others making them much more energy efficient.

Also, be aware of the sizes available, some towel rails will only fit 2 standard sized towels if folded which will inhibit their ability to dry.
