they look good when the towels are neatly folded on them...but how often does that happen? i always found myself having "show towels" for these towel bars and the towels we used everyday were hanging everywhere else in the bathroom...over doors...on the tub...you name it. so when we bought our house...i took all of our towel bars down and used other things.
in our powder room the hand towels hang on an old antique ladder thing (i really dont know what it is...but its the first thing my husband bought me when we were dating...i am sure he doesnt even remember) whatever it is...it serves its purpose for towel hanging!
here you can see where is sits in the room...
in our master bathroom, kevin made this plaque and i added the hooks. these hooks are not big enough though...and honestly the towels don't dry very fast:(
so when it came to the guest/kids bath we used bigger hooks and spread them farther apart and they work very well.
while we are looking at this guest bath...let me show you a very cool piece that kevin built. i think i have mentioned before that my husband travels a lot? well... for the past 7 years or so he has been collecting all of the goodies from the cool hotels he stays in. unfortunately until about 6 months ago...when he finally found time to build something for them...they were all piled in the linen closet. this is what he came up with...super clever as usual.
cute huh? ok...back to towel bars. i dont really have a lot more to say....other than ...when you arent loving your towel bars...take them down:) here are a few other examples of what to do with your towels...
