Make sure that the radiator is rust resistant
All radiators should be rust resistant, but it is even more important in bathrooms. You'll find that many towel radiators will go rusty within a year or two and this is because they haven't been treated properly and because they're made of a rust susceptible material, such as aluminium. The best choice of material for use in the bathroom or kitchen is stainless steel. This is because it is the most resistant to rust out of all the radiator materials.
