How hard is it to install a heated bath towel rack?

Not very! A heated towel rack can generally be installed in under a few hours and without the need for a carpenter. Of course, a power outlet is required to deliver electricity to the towel rack, so if you don’t already have a power outlet installed, you will need to call an electrician.

Providing you have a power outlet installed and are ready to, you will need just a few tools;

  • Spirit level
  • Stud finger
  • Tape measure
  • Electric drill and drill bits (sizes specified by the towel rack manufacture)
  • Screwdriver
  • Pencil

Use a stud finder to find the studs and mark where you want the rack to sit on the wall. Use the tape measure to get the position of the fixings correct and the spirit level to ensure everything is square.

Predrill the fixing screws. If you find one side doesn’t have studs, use wallmate anchors to provide additional support. Screw-in the mushroom screws provided and place your towel rack onto the mushroom screws. All you have to do now is plug it into the power outlet and enjoy your warm towels.
