The rationale for dumping both the old radiators was that they were taking space. In the entrance, there wasn't enough space for a baby carriage. In the laundry room, we wanted to place a worktop and cupboards where the old radiator was located. And as their name indicates, hydronic heated towel rails would also functional justification.

It took the plumber a full working day of hard labor to finish both projects (as nothing is quite as straightforward in old apartments than one might first think), but we were very satisfied with the end result. Both water heated towel rails are from a Finnish company Rej Design. The baby carriage now fits much better, there is space for a worktop and the old radiators are nothing more but a "ugly" memory.
