Looking for an awesome way to store towels in the bathroom or any other room? Here are the best towel racks in 2020 that will overdeliver!
If there’s one thing certain about towel racks is that there’s always not enough of them. Be it the bathroom, kitchen, or even a bedroom. More so if you live in a smaller apartment. This gives you an opportunity to not only get more storage space by getting some new towel racks. If you make the right choices you will improve your home decor at the same time.
Here’s a decor secret. You can use wall-mounted hooks just about everywhere and they look good. You can even kick it up a notch with vintage knobs and rustic bases. It’s just one of the towel rack ideas but this post is not about that (or only that). It’s about the variety of towel racks that you can get for all your towel needs. And believe me, I have some great picks.
But first, what do you need to know about choosing a towel rack?
- Not all environments are ideal for every type of rack. Humid climates need more airy racks where you may not be able to use hooks (bars are the option.)
- How big are your towels? Some racks are too small for plush towels or pool towels.
- Can you install the mounting hardware? (Is suction function your only option?)
- Definitely consider decor value.
- Are you making a gift? (Yes, the right towel rack is a great gift!)
Considering these points will help you choose a lot (and save you money on the wrong purchases). I’ve spent quite a bit of time researching these so I hope you find the list useful. As usual, I might get compensated by Amazon for qualifying purchases at no expense to you (marked as #ad) – but it does help me run this site a lot.
