How to Store Bath Towels


Bath towels are a bath time essential, but convenient and decorative storage of towels takes a little thought. A homeowner must decide what sort of design aesthetic works best with her current decor and size constraints. Thinking past the traditional single bar towel rack is important to accommodate bulk towel storage. Consider multiple storage and display areas for guest and domestic towels. Color coordinate collections and display new towels at the front, and keep old towels to the back of whichever storage idea you choose.

Things You'll Need

  • Shelving
  • Racks
  • Bins
  • Slots
  • Open design shelving and cabinets can give a bathroom character and color. Choose soft white shelving and pile colored bath towels in different places. Fill the gaps with bathroom knickknacks and lotions to give the idea that the stored towels are also an aesthetic touch, which they are.

  • Roll towels tightly and place in a wicker, straw or wire basket on the floor next to the bathtub. The basket acts as both a rustic display and convenient storage unit. Consider a color that contrasts with your towel color scheme. Purple towels in a purple basket is not a good look.

  • Attach small towel rails in a row on the back of the bathroom door. This way the traditional single towel rack concept becomes a sort of back-of-door shelving unit. This leaves towels close but out of the way.

  • Consider an over-the-toilet towel rack and shelf combination to utilize space. In smaller bathrooms it's important to get everything off the floor to make the space look larger. This way you can hang a few towels on the small rack for immediate use, and the rest are stored above.

  • Use open and closed cube storage that keeps the towels close by but protects them from dirt and dust. Stack cubes on top of each other or side by side. Like most bathroom storage units, these are available at home stores and large department stores.

  • Purchase recessed towel bins that slide underneath the bathtub for a modern but convenient storage solution. Ideal for round tubs and Jacuzzis, towel storage bins that sit underneath the bath are a smart way to save space at the same time you increase storage. Choose ones that match the color of the bath to make this bright storage solution invisible.

  • Place towel cubbies between the shower wall and the bathroom vanity for a decorative single slot towel storage solution. Roll each towel separately and push into the individual slots. It's a convenient way to keep towels dust free and a part of the décor at the same time.
