Fitting an under-basin towel rail
Bathrooms are often the smallest room in the house, and therefore space-saving designs like under-basin towel rails are an excellent idea. They can be fitted below pedestal supported basins or wall hung ones, as shown below.
|1. Make sure you find safe fixing positions. Use an electronic detector before drilling into walls where electric cables or pipes may be concealed.|
|2. Hold the towel rail in position against the wall. Use a spirit level to check that is level and then mark off the fixing points through the fixing holes.|
3. Drill pilot holes in the wall at the marked off positions. Drill bit type will be dependent on whether it is a masonry or hollow wall. Push in the appropriate wall plugs in the holes.
4. Position the towel rail and screw it firmly in place.
