One of the most popular bathroom fixture in any bathroom is a towel holder. There are many different types of towel holders such as towel bars, towel rings, towel stands, towel racks, and towel hooks. Each of these towel holders are different and serve a different purpose in a bathroom. Hopefully this post will give you a little insight on the uses of each holder and help you decide which one is perfect for your bathroom.
Towel bars are probably the most popular choice when buying a towel holder. There are many different type and sizes for a towel bar. First you have the standard single towel bar, as shown in the photo below. The standard sizes for a single bar towel bar are 14 inches, 18 inches, and 24 inches. Another type of towel bar is the swivel towel bar. These towel bars usually mounted in one spot rather than two and feature two movable rails.
Towel rings are another type of towel holders. Similar to the swivel towel bar, the towel ring is also mount in one spot. Rather than sizes, towel rings come in many different shapes and looks. Some towel rings feature a closed circle (such as the picture below) while others are open loop.
Another choice as a towel holder is a towel rack. Similar to a standard single towel bar, a towel rack is mounted in two locations. Towel racks are also know as towel shelves. Rather than hanging towels, towels are neatly folded and stacked on a towel rack. Towel racks are most commonly seen in hotels.
If your looking for a way to hang your towels with drilling any holes in your wall the best choice would be a towel stand. Towel stands are free standing towel holders that feature multiple towel bars, usually adjustable. Below is a picture for a towel stand that feature three adjustable towel rails.
The last type of towel holder is the towel hook. Similar to a towel ring or a swivel towel bar, towel hooks are mounted in one location. There are different types of bathroom hooks: a single hook, a double hook, and a triple hook. The use of a bathroom hook is not only for towels. Bathroom hook are commonly used to hang robes. Below is a picture of a double hook which two towels can be hung on.
