Hi all.

I'm looking to change the towel radiator in my bathroom for a conventional panel convector radiator. As it stands the distance between the 10mm plastic pipes going in to the bottom of the towel rad is approx 360mm. After fitting the valves to the panel rad it looks like its going to need to be around 490mm.

Taking up the floor covering and floor boards to alter the pipework is isn't really a road I wish to go down so I'm wondering if I can use some 90 degree elbows to widen the pipes to be able to connect them to the new panel rad? I know it won't look the best but I'd rather do that because if I had to take up the floor covering/boards I'd sooner just install a suitable wall mounted electric bathroom heater above the door to improve the heating in there.

Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Yes that would work and I've seen it done many times
