This high-end powder room, designed by Lori Carroll with Lori Carroll and Associates, won first place from the National Kitchen + Bath Association this year. To snag a bit of this style, use hooks or towel grabbers, which can be purchased at Walmart for less than $5, to display hand towels.
If there is no room on the walls near the sink for a hand towel ring or hook, take it to the countertop. Designer Jennifer Foster filled a red tray with a small towel stand for a boy’s bathroom. Decorative hand towels also are an easy way to make a bathroom look more polished, and designers often opt for ones with simple patterns such as stripes.
The lower charcoal gray section of the two tone walls adds texture and color to the simple design of this bathroom. A mounted oval mirror and black and white hand towels finish the vanity space. Coastal shadow box displays add depth and decor to the room.
This crisp and clean, contemporary bathroom boasts a gorgeous, dark wood vanity for a rustic touch. Blue hand towels pair beautifully with the dark wood while wall-mounted light fixtures cast lovely shadows on the walls.
Use of an industrial bookshelf in the master bathroom creates an artful space to organize hand towels, washcloths and accessories while new and vintage collectibles add a spa-like or beach inspired style.
Textured brown walls, a natural wood vanity countertop and a brown vessel sink create a harmonious blend of rustic style. A pair of decorative, beaded hand towels add a feminine touch to this otherwise masculine space.
Think outside the bottle with this accordion-style rack that's typically used to store wine or bottles of Pellegrino. A wine rack in the bathroom is a clever way to keep a few towels right at hand. It's a perfect solution for a guest bathroom, so friends don't need to hunt down a clean hand towel. Simply roll up towels and place bath towels on top and smaller hand towels and washcloths in the spaces below. Design by Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien. Photography by Charlotte Jenks Lewis
Stash dishwashing supplies out of sight. This narrow pull-out provides sink-adjacent storage for dish soap, scrub brushes and hand towels. Plus, a towel rack allows the dish towel to dry after use. Photo courtesy of Dura Supreme Cabinetry
