We would all love to have a house like those in the magazines. The reality however is that many times the pace of life we lead doesn’t allow us to devote all the time we would like to to get the most out of our homes, but rather we are thankful to manage to have everything clean and tidy by the end of the day. Bathroom is one of the most problematic rooms, so today we’ll see the best tricks and ideas for organising towels.
How to store towels in the bathroom
How we store towels in the bathroom can make the difference between a cosy bathroom or a small disaster in the making. No matter how clean your bathroom is, some neglected towels can make it look abandoned.
Order is essential: if you put towels folded on an open shelf, try have them well arranged by size. If the colours match, even better. Put the towels on display with the open edge to the back and the fluffy folded edge to be seen.
If you have discoloured or unpaired beach towels that don’t match with others but that you still need, don’t worry: a great trick is to use medium to large decorative storage baskets. We recommend this model which also has a very original finish that imitates natural fibres. That’s how you can keep them all hidden but at the same time at hand.
Ideas for hanging towels in the bathroom
We have all seen those hangers behind the doors where bath towels are hung like kitchen towels and often end up falling. If there’s no other choice, it’s a valid option. But with a little skill and a bit of good taste, so much more can be done.
Creating a towel rack is simple if there’s enough space for several bars at different heights. The empty space behind the door is also an ideal place for a heater/towel dryer; perfect for winter days when what you want the most after a shower is to wrap up with a soft and warm towel.
Where to store bath towels
When storing bathroom towels, it’s important to differentiate between towels that are used daily and those that are not. Hand towels are used much more frequently, while bath towels or bathrobes are usually used in cycles. That is, they are almost always in use, some hanging and others in the laundry basket or being washed. Once used towels have been washed, we take them to use and put the used ones to the laundry basket to wait to be washed, and so on.
However, it’s also common to have some towels that are used less; towels that are more worn out or simply are not in the usual use and laundry cycle. It’s necessary to have spare towels for guests or just in case.
Baskets are ideal for storing spare towels without occupying too much space: they can be kept in a bathroom cabinet or even on a shelf placed high enough so that it doesn’t take up the space needed for other things or make the bathroom feel cramped. Super practical!
