Types of Towel Rings and Bars

Types of Towel Rings and Bars

If you're looking for a way to change or update the overall style and design of your bathroom or put the finishing touches on a complete makeover, towel rings and bars can do both. Various styles are available, so consider space constraints as well as personal preferences when choosing a style for your bath. Here are the main types of towel rings and bars available.

Towel Bars and Racks

Standard towel bars have a single bar that is attached to the wall at each end. Bar lengths vary, but generally they measure 18, 20, 24, 30, or 32 inches. Choose a double bar if you need to hang multiple towels. Or consider a swivel towel bar for even more flexibility in usage. Freestanding towel racks and over-the-door racks are also available—both can be useful if wall space is limited.

Be sure to select a hook that is big enough to support the type of towel you need it to hold. Also take note of how the hooks are mounted to be sure they will be stable.

Towel Rings

If you have a small bathroom without space to spare, towel rings are a good option. Often used for hand towels, towel rings are simple and elegant, but they're not always shaped as their name implies. Some are partial circles open on one side, and others may have a flat space along the bottom.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Before installing or replacing towel bars or rings, there are a few key things you'll want to consider. Bars and rings are often mounted, so you'll want to be certain the model you purchase works with the type of walls in your bathroom. You'll also want to take note of the finish of the towel ring or bar itself to be sure it matches the existing fixtures in your bathroom. Remember, too, that functionality is as important as overall style and design. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you are looking at various styles.

Finish

Towel fixtures come in a variety of finishes, including chrome, nickel, pewter, stainless steel, and even wood. You'll want to consider what will best complement the overall bathroom design and the other fixtures in the room.

Location

Towel rings and bars should be placed within easy reach of the sink, tub, or shower. And you'll want to consider what type of towel will be used where. For example, if wall space isn't available near the sink, a towel stand placed on the countertop is a good alternative for hand towels. Near the shower, you'll want something that holds full-size towels. The standard height for a towel ring, bar, or hook is 48 inches.

Safety and Convenience

You might want to consider purchasing a towel bar with multiple uses. For example, some towel bars double as grab bars, which enhance safety for people of all ages when installed in the shower and tub area, as well as near the toilet. Towel warmers offer a place to store towels while also ensuring they'll be nice and warm as you step out of the shower. They are available in a variety of styles and finishes.
