A ladder’s way cooler than your average towel bar, even more so when draped with fringed Turkish towels. Secure to the wall with D rings or leather straps. Both World Market and Pottery Barn have versions of this vintage find. (Room design by Kate Lester Interiors)
Bar carts are one of the most versatile pieces you can add to your home. Of all items in this dining space, the bar cart is the one that remains for all three purposes. Here it's outfitted as a drink station and a designated spot for keeping fresh towels within arm's reach as well as bottled water and open storage.
Use every nook and cranny. The creative design, by interior designer Jenn Ryan, in this metro Atlanta bathroom, features a niche with a towel bar and tucks in shelves for towels in an otherwise-neglected spot.
Looking for a pretty place to stash small kitchen items or herbs? Create cute, custom utensil holders with a few recycled tin cans. Spray paint and craft tape will gussy them up, and S-hooks will keep them hanging in place on a towel bar.
The master bathroom has a clear view of the Olympic Mountains. Both the bathtub and shower are positioned to enjoy the peaceful scenery of the Puget Sound. The custom stone sink features a hidden drain, and stone-faced drawers below sink have an integrated towel bar.
Framed abstract diptych art with varying shades of gray decorates the wall above the toilet. Below a hotelier made from premium metal construction with a matte black finish has an upper shelf and towel bar that offer a way to air-dry towels and display greenery and decorative items.
This pet-friendly mudroom features a space for cleaning wet pets, housing food and water dishes, and storing food, accessories, dog crates or litter boxes. "A large utility sink can be helpful for refilling dishes or cleaning muddy paws, as can towel bars or towel hooks," says Jeffrey S. Brown, president of J.S. Brown & Co.
To create separate storage for each person in this master bathroom, two top wall cabinets were added on each side of the double vanity with adjustable shelves and convenient outlets. In the center, base cabinet drawers offer storage for common items. Towel bars placed under each sink provide easy access with a shelf below for extra towels.
Tucked away next to a glass shower door is this unusual floating vanity in brown wood that continues the modern theme for this beachside home. The designer, TriplePoint Design Build, laid mosaic tile as a backsplash between the mirror and vanity and installed a modern lighting fixture on the mirror itself. A chrome towel bar and faucet blend in with the look.
