Some towel hangers are wall-mounted, which is great for staying organised in small spaces. Hang yours behind the door, so it’s out of the way. Other towel stands are freestanding, which is a nice indulgence if you have extra room. Freestanding options also suit renting tenants who aren’t able to drill holes in walls. What’s more, they’re a convenient place to hang the clothes you’ll dress into after your bath or shower.
Many designs are made for organising a range of bathroom accessories, including toilet paper, shower accessories and toiletries, and so on. Some towel stand designs are so sleek and understated, they’d look right at home in a space that incorporates Scandinavian furniture.
When choosing bathroom accessories, remember that it’s a high-moisture area, so the materials you choose matter. Go for a towel rack stand that won’t easily deteriorate, rust or corrode, such as stainless steel with a chrome finish. For something different, other finishes to consider include matte black metal, polished brass, or oil-rubbed bronze.
Also measure the space well. Bathrooms are often short on space. Nobody likes to feel cramped when getting ready, so a towel hanger taking up too much floor space is likely to grate on nerves.
