Towel Display 101

Forget tiling and plumbing. When it comes to sprucing up shower time, look no further than a few towels. Rolled or folded, when displayed right (a.k.a. not in a heap on the floor, which, okay, I’ve been guilty of), towels go from simple bath-time necessities to stylish accessories. See how:

For a spa-like feel: roll towels so they’re the same width and stack them on open shelves. Use a different shelf for each towel size and alternate where each size is stored for greater visual interest.

For a whimsical touch: hang towels from a wooden clothes hanger then suspend the hanger from ordinary hooks. This is ideal for guest bathrooms so visitors can carry their towels from room to room.

For a hotel look: fill a punch bowl, box, or wicker basket with a set of rolled towels and  place it on the sink-front or edge of the bathtub. Placing towels on a unique object such as a vintage chair or wine rack is also a great way to make a statement.

For a quick and easy display: arrange differently hued bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths in a simple stack that shows off their contrasting colors.
