Any style of vintage chair, bench, or table can make a uniquely interesting towel display shelf.
Towels are traditionally hung on towel bars or rings like the ones shown here. These have a bit of added interest because of their placement over the tub and their same-height arrangement.
Give your bath towels a place of honor in a bathroom with these storage and display ideas. First up: create a unique towel display from tiered units designed for either bath or kitchen storage. Ours includes three oval baskets and a bar where there's room for hand towels.
Give an open shelf a boost of style by rolling towels and stacking them to fill each cubby. This technique can also lend a spa feel to a bath.
Open shelves offer lots of handy display space for towels and bath accessories. Keep stacks neat and organized for the most pleasing look.
Here's a fun look that's part country, part sophistication: lean a vintage or new log ladder against a wall and use the rungs as towel bars.
Here's a whimsical towel idea for a guestroom. Hang towel sets on clothes hangers suspended from ordinary hooks. Guests can easily carry them to and from their room as needed.
A shelf fashioned from white lattice and iron hooks gives this bath a cottage feel.
Save space by installing a double towel bar like this one. These hold twice the towels in the same wall space as a single bar.
Any bin, basket, or pot can be turned into a stylish towel holder and underscore a bathroom's decorating theme. This whitewashed plant pot blooms with fresh white towels and lends a romantic air to the space.
Outfit decorative shelves with careful displays of accessories, towels, and bath necessities. Consider each item as art and choose ways to show off its best features.
Hotel towel shelves, like the one shown in the corner of this bathroom, are the perfect way to keep towels at hand, yet out of the way. Stack folded towels on the top and use the bar to hold the set being used.
Bars installed under an open countertop are a handy place for towels used every day. They also serve to hide less-than-attractive plumbing under the sink.
Give your bath a designer look by filling a punchbowl, box, or platter with a set of rolled towels.
Warm up a space by designing shelves to hold large basket "drawers" for towels and supplies. These can go in a vertical space like the one shown here, or try any open area under a sink or in an unused niche (see the following slide for an example).
Transform an awkward attic bath into a pretty retreat that accommodates plenty of storage. Three shelves were designed to fit large basket drawers used to hold towels and supplies.
