Upscale hotels offer amenities like towel warmers in the bathroom, allowing guests to stay warm while getting out of the shower. Turn your home into a high-end resort by installing a towel warmer in the bathroom. This luxury item makes towels toasty on demand, turning a shower on a cold day into a pleasure.
You will need:
Step 1: Determine the best spot for the towel warmer. Ideally, it should be located within arm’s length of the tub or shower so people will not need to step out to grab a towel. Consider manufacturer safety precautions when choosing a location.
Step 2: Read the manufacturer instructions for installation. Attach the towel warmer legs to the frame and secure them with the screws and screwdriver. The legs act as spacers, keeping the towel warmer a safe distance from the bathroom wall.
Step 3: Place the towel warmer against the wall in the desired location. Use the pencil to mark the location of each leg on the wall. Make sure the configuration is level by resting the torpedo level in the middle of the warmer rack. Remove the warmer from the wall.
Step 4: Toggle bolts are used to anchor the warming rack legs to the wall. Refer to the template provided with the installation kit regarding how to mark the center point of the rack legs. Use the drill and the proper drill bit to pre-drill the toggle bolt holes. If the bathroom wall is tiled, use a ceramic tile bit and drill through the tile and the drywall. Screw a toggle bolt into each pre-drilled hole.
Step 5: Refer to the manufacturer instructions for proper connection of electrical wiring. Use the wire stripper pliers to strip the casing from the lead wire. Follow the instructions to connect all wires and secure connected wires with the wire nuts. Turn on the power to the towel warmer to ensure that the electrical connections were made properly. Secure the cover plate to the electrical junction box.
Step 6: Put the towel warmer in place on the toggle bolts. Use the Allen wrench to tighten the set screws.
