We have an ordinary radiator on the CH, with a simple towel rail above for hand towels, and an electric only towel warmer for warming/drying bath towels, operated by a timer. You could also fit a dual fuel towel warmer for using at different times of the year.
We also have an electric fan heater to use when the CH is not on.
The standard chrome towel raisl don't suit the modern shower rooms IMO and like the OP's pic, you can get desginer ones and much bigger than that, we have. If your heating is working properly, even a small one at full blast heats up a big bathroom but
CARE is needed if you have young kids/toddlers and or frail people as they can get very hot so a bigger rad/towel rail with a mid temp over a larger areas is better IMO.
Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.
I've inherited some 1950s looking double towel rails that are no beauties but the towels don't slide off them with the radiator under and you can rest your morning clothes on the top to be warm on a cold day. I love this.
As they say 'don't change anything until you've lived with it a while.
So I'm working around the vintage theme by the look of it.
