Buying Guide

Paper towels are a kitchen essential, but when you're proud of your décor, finding somewhere suitable to store it can be a hassle. With a decorative paper towel holder, you can eliminate the issue of wondering where to put the paper towels, and you can keep it within easy reach while making the kitchen look even more sophisticated and tidy. Here are some of the styles of decorative paper towel holders that you may come across.

Mounted paper towel holder

This can be mounted on any wall in your kitchen, or you can position it underneath one of the cupboards or units. When mounted on a wall, this sturdy wooden holder also provides a small shelf on top on which you can place candles, ornaments and other items of interest. The top will lift up to allow you to put the roll of paper towels inside. When closed, you can pull the pieces of paper towel from underneath easily, creating an elegant and subtle way to keep things tidy.

Feature paper towel holder

This metal stand is the ideal size for holding your paper towel roll, and there are different designs which you may come across. One of the designs, for example, is a black metal stand which has a traditionally shaped lamp post on it. There may be other features too, such as a post box and cat or another animal. The feature item is normally thin and long to allow the roll to be placed on it. The circular base is neat and sturdy and will fit almost anywhere in the kitchen. Other feature pieces which you may find are lamps, candlesticks and tree shapes on which you can comfortably fit any roll of paper towels.

Plastic cover paper towel holder

Not everybody wants the paper towels to be visible in the kitchen, and if you've put a lot of effort into making your kitchen what you want, you might not be prepared to buy something that emphasizes the paper towels and makes them look even more obvious to you and your guests. This plastic paper towel holder is available in a variety of colors to suit your kitchen décor perfectly, and you can put the paper towel roll inside and cover it completely. A thin slit on one side offers a way of easily accessing the paper towels.

Natural branch paper towel holder

Ideal for any cottage kitchen, the natural paper towel holder designs are fascinating and unique in their own way. One such design is the horizontally positioned branch upon which you can hang the paper towels. This may be made using authentic tree branches or could be made using refined wood. The jagged effect ensures it maintains its natural effect, while a small ornamental bird or some flowers add color and interest to the piece. This is available both as a mounted wall piece and also on a flat stand to be placed on any horizontal surface.

Paper towel and napkin holders are made from a diverse range of materials. Different materials offer various levels of style, durability, and function, so choose a holder made from a material that fits your organizational needs, and also coordinates with the décor. Some of the most common materials used for paper towel and napkin holders include:

Wood

Wood paper towel and napkins holders offer a durable and stylish solution for storing napkins and towels. Primarily used for countertop and box holder designs, wooden holders in a natural finish can add a touch of country style charm to any kitchen. Try a holder of wood mixed with marble or metal for a chic modern take on a traditional style.

For holders in kitchens or bathrooms, ensure the wood is coated with a food-safe sealant such as oil or beeswax to prevent mold growth if the unit gets wet.

Metal

Metal paper towel and napkins holders work well in formal and casual settings. Often constructed from wrought iron or stainless steel to prevent corrosion, metal holders are the most versatile in terms of design.

Choose a standing napkin holder with ornate scrollwork for a traditional style kitchen. A sleek chrome-colored standing paper towel holder with a geometric style base blends seamlessly with a Scandi or modern-urban style kitchen. Match the finish of the metal napkin holder to your silverware to uplift your everyday dining experience.

Plastic

For a low maintenance option that can be used indoors and out, try acrylic plastic napkin holders. They come in a range of different colors and designs. Acrylic is naturally scratch-resistant and clear, so it makes an excellent option for showing off decorative napkins or for high use applications such as restaurants and commercial bathrooms.

Glass

Glass or crystal is stylish material that is often used for napkin holders rather than paper towel dispensers. The luxurious design of a glass holder is perfect for a formal dining area and ideal for use on a special occasion. They are also well suited to hotel dining areas and fine dining establishments.

Match your napkin holder to your dining room furniture for effortless styling. Traditional style homes suit faceted or elaborately crafted pieces, while glass napkin holders with simple, clean lines look best in a modern home.

Ceramic

Although not recommended for paper towel holders due to their fragility, ceramic can be a tasteful option as a napkin holder. Porcelain and ceramic holders add a subtle textural element to your kitchen décor. However, they should be kept away from damp areas as the unglazed base of the holder is porous and absorbs water.

Opt for elaborate glazed styles with animal motifs for a farmhouse country kitchen. Use a pristine white ceramic holder with a gentle textured pattern for contemporary and Scandi style.

Marble

Marble is an excellent material for free-standing countertop paper towel, and napkin holders as the weight of the stone provides stability to the structure of the unit. With repeated exposure to water, marble can develop stains, so keep it away from kitchen and bathroom sinks, and wipe up spills immediately to keep your marble holder looking new.

Marble combines perfectly with modern and classical designs, making marble holders the ideal choice for a transitional home. The interesting patterns naturally occurring in the marble also make them an excellent choice for minimal, Scandi, and boho homes.

It is essential to consider the type of paper towel you are using to find the perfect paper towel holder for your home or business. While each type has its benefits, some holders are designed for certain types of towel. The most popular kinds of paper towel holders include:

Countertop

Countertop paper towel holders are ideally suited for home use as they feature a central post that allows for quick dispensation to manage messes in the kitchen or bathroom. They are designed to accommodate rolls of perforated paper towels, and the slim design fits neatly on any kitchen counter. Look for a countertop holder with a round weighted base with a non-slip grip underneath for better stability in wet areas.

Mounted

There are two types of mounted paper towel holders: surface and wall mounted units. Surface-mounted holders are used for more accurate dispensation of paper towels, while wall-mounted units are designed to dispense single folded paper towels. They are the perfect choice for restaurants and healthcare facilities but can also be a great way to maximize your counter space at home.

Folded

Folded towel holders conveniently dispense a single paper towel at a time to reduce waste. They are usually mounted to the wall and come in a variety of dispensing mechanisms to accommodate different sizes of paper towels. They are appropriate for commercial bathrooms and kitchens.

Combination Dispenser and Trash Can

Combination paper towel holders and trash cans are designed to create a more hygienic environment by dispensing paper towels and collecting waste. This holder is a great way to save space and promotes better sanitation for bathrooms in hospitality venues.

  • Choose a paper towel holder for the kitchen and bathroom, and keep napkins organized on the dining table with a napkin holder.
  • For small kitchens, choose a wall-mounted holder to save space. If you have ample counter space, choose a heavy free-standing or surface mounted holder for added stability.
  • Holder materials vary in durability and can elevate the style of your dining area.
  • Choose plastic, metal, and wood for low-maintenance everyday organization.
  • Glass and ceramic holders are ideal for formal entertaining.
  • Coordinate the style of your napkin holder with your silverware, and the style of your paper towel holder with your kitchen furniture.
