I have a small master bathroom and am debating where to store towels. Debating between A) Chrome Train Rack above the toilet B) Floating shelves with towels or C) ??? Any thoughts/advice?
I've just come across this ingenious idea on Ikea Hackers: Here it's been fixed on two pipes, but clearly the Ikea Variera pot holder could easily be attached to any wall. Store your towels AND hang two for use. Brilliant idea!
In the hall linen closet. My bathrooms are all tiny.
Bath towels are stacked in a chrome train rack in DD'S bath and in a linen closet in the master bath. Extra towels/beach towels are kept in the hall linen closet.
We're just finishing up a new bathroom in the office/guest room and I'm not sure where we'll keep towels since it's very small. I was thinking of putting bath and hand towels in locker baskets stored in a small bookshelf, but there might not be enough floor space. I had DH put in some blocking over the toilet in case we need to do wall shelves or another train rack.
Where do you dry your towels w/o towel warmer?
Please tell me where do you hang a t-towel for hand drying?
Where do you store bulky linens
Where do you store your onions?
Guest bathroom: in vanity drawers.
For our hall bathroom and MB: in the linen closet in our hall bathroom.
My bathroom is HUGE. I have cubbies. I roll towels up and store about 12. But my rental houses have linen closets for extra towels. I LOVE train racks. I considered putting one in the house I'm working on now. Ebay was the way to go!
Hall linen closet. Unless it's a guest bath shared by more than one person or with a large turnover of guests, I don't see why spare towels need to be displayed.
Hall linen closet.
Linen closet but then for ourselves we have very few towels - just a couple of very good bath sheets. Wash and reuse weekly. Same goes for sheets.
Master bedroom closet that is directly outside the master bedroom. I don't store the linens in the bathroom because of moisture that is generated during the bathing process. I find towels stored in the bathroom always smell a little musty to me. All linens are stored outside of all the bathrooms and only the ones being used are in the bathroom. I use hooks in my bathroom and mainly use bath sheets too.
In the Slightly Imperfect Powder Room, there's only room for a small towel bar, so I keep extras in a bin in the pantry. The 1925 Second Floor Bathroom was a converted bedroom so the towels are stored in the closet. In the Starting From Dirt Basement Bathroom, there isn't even space for a towel bar (which is why I went with a sink with legs - so I can hang the hand towels!), so I carved out a cubbie to store towels and other sundries.
Am I the only one that stores towels under the sink? In my bathroom, I have a linen closet but DH's bathroom doesn't. The inside of the vanity is "finished" and lined with shelf paper (actually it's that duck woven cushy stuff). The plumbing coming out of the wall is all sealed and tidy. Bath towels are stored under the sink while hand towels and wash clothes are on a train rack above the toilet (which is next to the tub).
I also put clean towels In the vanity and have a coat hook strip for wet ones. Doesn't take up much space at all.
I don't like the (currently fashionable) idea of storing towels in the open (on train racks, or open shelving). Just an invitation for moisture or dust.... It seems like an idea that is fine for hotel bathrooms, but not appropriate for homes. I currently keep towels in a linen closet outside the bathroom. In our upcoming bath renos, master bath will have have a deep drawer in the vanity for towels, hall bath will have an Ikea Godmorgon tall cabinet for towels.
