Would a loop of 15mm pipe between 2 radiator valves be small enough? My brother used to have a towel rail made from standard plumbing fittings.

I take it you mean the smaller the better - as there's lack of space to fit a radiator ?

The smaller the better - is no good if it's not going to heat the space where you install it. If it's in a kitchen where finding space to fit a radiator is normally an isuue - I would personally go for a plinth/kickboard heater.
