A wide, double faucet sink gives a unique look to the vanity set up of this country bathroom. Contemporary sconces frame the mirror over matching towel rings. Simple basket storage keeps the space uncluttered, and a red patterned rug adds a splash of warm color to the design.
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.
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)
Almost invisible glass shower walls create a seamless view through the picturesque window from the rest of the bathroom and the soaker tub. A sleek double vanity pairs dark wood with charcoal gray countertops, and open cubbies keep towels handy.
The kid's bathroom at HGTV Dream Home 2014 combines durable neutral materials with bright, kid-friendly touches. An area containing the commode, shower and stainless steel hooks for clothing and towels can be closed off from the rest of the space. A glass door makes the space-saving shower seem larger.
Designers wanted to help keep the homeowners organized, so they designed a beach themed mudroom. The space has storage for shoes and beach bags, as well as racks for towels and swim suits so that all of the sand and water from a trip to the beach stays in this space instead of getting tracked through the rest of the house.
