A towel warmer brings spa-like luxury to your home. A warm towel feels great after a hot shower or bath, and can be well worth it to those who live in cold regions. If you’re someone who dreads showers in the winter, a towel warmer can completely change your experience. Luxury? Yes. But it’s also functional.
Towel warmers are also useful beyond bath time. Cabinet style and portable towel warmers are used for hot towels, which are priceless in a good skincare routine. They are helpful in preparing the skin for a shave, letting products absorb better, and taking off makeup at the end of the day. Similarly, rack and bucket style warmers can heat up your bedding, and some even dry wet towels in the bathroom after use.
