How Much Does It Cost To Fit A
A stylish heated towel rail or a beautiful radiator is a must have for any bathroom. They keep the space warm, dry towels and complement the look and feel of the decor.
But like with any renovation project, it is always a good idea to have a budget in mind, be aware of any additional costs that might come your way, and importantly any tips and tricks that could save some of your money!
In this guide we’ll take you through the average costs to fit a heated towel rail or bathroom radiator and the other influences that could affect the total bill.
Cost to install a heated towel rail
According to Checkatrade, the average cost of installing a standard hot water heated towel rail is £235 for materials and £225 for installation. So you should expect to pay around £460 in total.
Cost to install a bathroom radiator
Of course a heated towel rail isn’t the only option to keep your bathroom cosy and give you lovely warm towels.
Classic column radiators and modern designer radiators with robe hooks and accessories are becoming increasingly popular bathroom heating choices.
So how much will it cost to fit a bathroom radiator?
Checkatrade advises that the average cost to replace a radiator is usually around £200 for a double panel radiator that connects to your central heating system.
Popular double panel options for bathrooms are the white Milano Windsor column radiator and the anthracite Milano Aruba vertical designer radiator.
Installation costs for electric and dual fuel designer radiators will usually be around the same price as the towel rail equivalents.
However, they may be slightly more expensive to fit if they are larger radiators, or if pipework, flooring and walls require work.
