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
Splurge on thick, 100 percent cotton bath towels, washcloths and hand towels for your guests. A great tip is to buy guest towels in a color different from your regular towels so you'll always have the "good" towels ready for overnight guests. These guest towels have been livened up with addition of colorful bands of ribbon the help dress up the bathroom. (And they color coordinate with the rubber duckies!)

A wicker basket, metal stool and animal hide rug give beautiful country detail to this bathroom design. Slick white subway tile lines the shower and bathtub behind a gray and white chevron shower curtain. A deep floating sink includes a hand towel rack and long curved stainless steel faucet.
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
A towel rack placed above the tub keeps clean towels close at hand. The master bathroom also includes well-placed double robe hooks in vibrant brushed nickel that keep a cozy robe close by when exiting the shower or tub.
Stunning white marble tile installed vertically creates the impression of space and luxury in this contemporary shower. A modern hand-held showerhead and rainfall showerhead complete the spa-like ensemble, while a rack makes for handy towel accessibility.
Have a thing for baskets? Don’t cram them in your closet. Hang them on your accordion rack with pride, filled with whatever you’d like — the options are endless. In the kitchen, fill them with produce or snacks. In a bedroom, try jewelry or scarves. In a bathroom, stuff them with pretty toiletries or washcloths and hand towels.
