Best Simple Towel Bar
Sometimes the simplest solution is best. This sleek bathroom towel rack does its job without any bells and whistles. It’s just a traditional wall-mounted towel bar.
Best Towel Bar Set
If you like the Delta Porter towel bar, you’ll be glad to know there’s a matching set.
This bathroom towel rack set comes with a large towel bar, a hand towel ring and a toilet paper holder. They’re sturdy, dependable pieces that are attractive without being too trendy. They’ll stay in style for years even as you repaint the walls and replace the shower curtain.
Best Cabinet Door Towel Holder
A towel holder that hooks over a cabinet door is a more convenient, inexpensive and temporary solution — ideal for renters. This two-pack from Target comes in four colors and keeps your hand towels within reach.
Best Over the Door Towel Rack
An over the door towel rack is another removable option.
A Command Hook will do the trick for a single towel, but if you live with roommates or family, this over the door towel rack from Wayfair is even better. It has three towel bars and two bottom hooks, which can hold towels or other things like robes or hair wraps. It comes in flat nickel and classic bronze.
Best Freestanding Towel Rack
Got floor space? A freestanding towel rack keeps your walls free for artwork, although it does take up a chunk of your floor. This black freestanding towel rack presents a small footprint, with a base less than two feet long. Three tiered towel bars hold clean towels or let used ones air dry.
Best Wall Mounted Towel Rack
It’s also a great choice for guests. Instead of laying out a towel or having them rummage through your cabinets, this modern towel rack keeps fresh towels in sight.
Best Shower Towel Rack
Do you tend to sling used towels over the shower door? We have to admit, it’s a convenient spot to hang them. But the practice can lead to a cluttered-looking bathroom.
This bathroom towel rack slips over the shower door so you always have towels right where you need them. As a bonus, it also fits over closet or entry doors.
Best Bathroom Towel Shelf
A bathroom shelf with a towel bar crams two storage solutions into one item. This rustic-industrial bathroom towel shelf features two distressed shelves and a metal frame. It holds folded towels, extra toilet paper, air freshener and more on the shelves, while the bottom bar provides a convenient place to hang towels.
Best Ladder Towel Rack
This ladder towel rack leans against the wall, taking up little floor space. Four rungs serve as towel bars. And since it’s metal, damp towels won’t wreck it.
