Bathroom Linen Tower

Is your family growing to the point where you’re running out of storage space for towels? Do you enjoy having guests over whenever you can? Then a bathroom linen tower will keep everything nice and tidy.

At the same time, these cabinets will also allow you to introduce a decorative element that can tie the entire bathroom together, whether you pick a closed model in a cohesive finish or one with open shelves that you can use to showcase a few charming items.

Five shelves are a popular solution, but try and run a little inventory and choose your tower accordingly if you can.

As for materials, the two most popular options are wood (as long as it includes a factory finish or stain to protect it in such a moist environment) and MDF. However, you can now find models with glass and metal elements, too.

An all-time favorite design when it comes to bathroom linen towers involves cabinets with a few open shelves and some others hidden behind cupboard doors. This allows you to keep your most frequently used items at easy reach while protecting the most delicate ones from moisture and splashes of water.

For example, if your new linen tower is too close to your shower, it’d be safer to keep the towels behind closed cupboards so that they’ll be super dry waiting for you when you get out.

Some people prefer avoiding open designs as they know that they would end up filling them with clutter. Does that sound like you? To avoid a busy feel and keep your towels and bathroom items actually tidy, play it safe with a closed cabinet.

Since its entire front will include doors and drawers, why not pick some decorative ones?

Whether you prefer recessed cupboard doors, slatted designs or something else entirely, choose a model that will still make a statement.

Maybe it’s because it’s actually fairly small, or maybe it’s just a bit dim and full of large furniture, but does your bathroom feel a bit tight?

In that case, improve its visual flow by introducing a bathroom linen tower with an open design on its upper part.

This will also make it easier to reach for your shampoo or other beauty products from different angles when you’re having a shower or getting ready in front of the sink in the morning.

Bathroom linen towers that include a few open shelves behind a glass door are a clever compromise in steamy bathrooms: they keep everything safe and dry while still allowing you to showcase a few items instead of hiding them behind closed cupboards.

Just keep in mind that you’ll probably have to wipe its glass surface a bit more often.

Black bathroom linen tower

Most linen towers tend to be white to match the most popular styles of bathroom fixtures and furniture. Not your thing?

If you’d like to balance this color by creating an eye-catching contrast, you can’t go wrong with a black design. It immediately inspires a touch of luxurious sophistication and works across different decor styles, especially traditional.

The world of bathroom linen towers isn’t all black and white. Sure, they might be a bit harder to find, but there are certainly other hues out there.

For the most cohesive results, you could scout for a bathroom vanity and linen cabinet combo in the same color.

Alternatively, you can create a balanced palette by introducing a linen tower in a contrasting hue or one that matches other elements in your bathroom.

Contemporary linen tower

While bathroom linen towers tend to inspire a traditional and almost nostalgic feel, you can make them work in your contemporary interiors, too.

For example, stray away from more ornate designs including noticeable decorative elements such as recessed cabinets.

Instead, stick to streamlined, clean, and symmetrical shapes as well as designs experimenting with creative layouts like this visually appealing combination of closed and open storage.

Wider linen tower for bathrooms where space isn’t a problem

As you’ve probably noticed by now, most bathroom linen towers tend to be… in a tower shape (duh): narrow and tall. This is still the most space-saving choice in smaller bathrooms.

If, on the other hand, space is the least of your concerns, you could spoil yourself with a more traditional-looking model with wider shelves.

Not planning on settling for anything less than the most cohesive and stylish bathroom? Then consider some bathroom vanity and linen tower sets.

You can also find larger ones that include extra items such as cabinets and mirrors.

That way, your entire bathroom will maintain a balanced palette, showcasing your excellent taste in interior design.

If you don’t need an entire set right now or can’t find the right size for your bathroom, you can also pick a more basic vanity and linen cabinet combo.

You can still purchase cabinets and mirrors separately, as long as you maintain their style consistent.

This is also a practical option if you’d like to have the latter in a different color to create some conscious contrast.

Our advice Buying Guide

The assumption is that apart from a towel rack, furniture is not needed in a bathroom. Well, times have changed, and if you are looking for a modern look, bathroom furniture is essential. There are all sorts of advantages to adding furniture to your bathroom – especially a bathroom linen tower, including adding to the already trendy décor and providing convenient additional storage.

Although it’s called a linen tower, you don’t need to use it for storage; you may want an eye-catching focal point or to fill up additional space. There are a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to choose from and this guide will provide you with some simple advice on how to make the best decision when choosing your linen tower.

How to select the best bathroom linen tower?

The best bathroom linen towers have several things in common. To select a piece of furniture that will satisfy your storage and aesthetic needs, look for those features as your browsing.

  • Freestanding units: In recent years, it has become increasingly popular for bathrooms to look like living spaces, and so a free-standing bathroom linen tower will fit right in if that’s the look you are going for. They don’t look like your average linen tower; they stand on legs which makes them look less bulky than conventional versions. If you have a minimal space bathroom, this is an excellent choice because their openness works well in this décor.
  • Units with big storage capacity: The size of your bathroom linen tower will depend on the space you have available in your bathroom. It is important to note that both tall and short linen towers can be deceiving. While the tall tower might have more space, sometimes this is not the case. The same is true of a short linen tower; it may appear that they have less space when in fact they have more.
  • Multi-drawer units: These are perfect for a small bathroom because they are compact and don’t get in the way. If you have a lot of linen that you want to store, multi-drawer units are ideal.

If you are having difficulty finding a linen tower to match your bathroom, you can always go bespoke and have one designed especially for you. It will cost you a bit more money, but you will get exactly what you want.

How to coordinate a bathroom linen tower with bathroom style?

There is a wide range of finishes and styles to choose from when selecting your bathroom linen tower. Add some flair and style to your space with a colorful wooden finish; there are pristine looking white towers to match your bathroom suite. Or if you have a more contemporary style bathroom, there is the stainless-steel look.

Now that you have an idea of the type of linen tower that you think would suit your bathroom, you can peacefully go out shopping knowing exactly what you are looking for.
