A wooden towel rack is the perfect combination of functional and aesthetic. A good towel rail will blend seamlessly into your bathroom and make the most of the space. Depending on where you put it, you will need to consider whether your wooden towel rack is freestanding, how it is attached, and how much space you can use up. No matter your style and space requirements, we’ve got you covered!

Wall Mounted Wooden Towel Hanger

SeaTeak

$37 $32.99

Description

Perfect for: Warming up the bathroom with a smooth, nautical look.

What We Like: Good quality for the price.

What We Don’t: The color can be a little lighter than what appears in the pictures.

This towel hanger is made with 100% solid teak, one of the most durable woods. It’s also resistant to extreme temperatures and high in natural oils, which prevent rotting or warping, making it an asset to bathrooms and other steamy spaces like kitchens. Mount it on the wall to save floor space, and watch how quickly it adds an element of nautical glam to your bathroom. 

Designer Advice

This towel bar is a bathroom essential that looks great installed on the side of a kitchen cabinet — give stars for being multipurpose. It elevates the look of any space, but it looks especially divine mounted on a rough wood wall. 

What Users Say

The fact that it is teak should mean that it won’t fade because of the moisture from the towels and wash clothes that will hang from it. Pros: Stout.

What we like: Wood and Metal Combination, Space Saving

What we don’t like: Mounting hardware not included

If you have a small bathroom space but still need it to be functional, we have the solution. This towel rack includes a metal bar for hanging towels, as well as a top shelf for storing supplies and accessories. It is a two in one that would work well in a guest bathroom, powder room, or space conscious apartment.

We love the combination of wood and metal, with the torched wood finish that would look great in most modern bathrooms. It does not specify that mounting hardware is included, but this is a great storage solution for a smaller bathroom.

What we like: Three-In-One Towel Rail, Folds Away

What we don’t like: Not suitable for rentals

Whether you have multiple people hanging up towels or simply want to spread towels out to dry faster, this nifty little towel rail will work in any modern bathroom. The round wooden dowels can fold away to save space or hold three towels simultaneously. We love the creative use of space.

Due to the screw-mounted design this may not be suitable for rental homes, but all hardware is included for quick installation in homes where it is allowed. This towel rack definitely makes our favorite list.

Description

What we like: Teak wood finish, luxurious, sustainable materials

What we don’t like: Freestanding

Create a touch of luxury in your own bathroom! This wooden towel holder showcases a distinctive "X" design that mimics those found in upscale spas. Made with 100% sustainably harvested teak and constructed by hand, it will hold plenty of plush towels to make every day feel like a staycation.

This is a free standing towel rack so it is made for bathrooms with a bit more space. It is also designed for holding towels rather than drying them so it is definitely more aesthetic than functional!

Description

What we like: Extra storage shelf, Rustic style

What we don’t like: Not attached to the wall

You’ve probably seen wooden towel ladders, but this is one of our favorites. As well as space to hang your towels, it has a shelf at the base for extra storage or decor. This wall leaning ladder is an excellent way to add charming rustic style and spacious storage to your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, living room, or any other area around your home.

We probably wouldn’t recommend this towel rack if you have kids that might knock it over or if you need a towel rack behind a door simply because it is freestanding. This is a perfect addition for a rustic or farm style aesthetic.

Freestanding Triple Wooden Towel Rack For Family Homes

The Twillery Co.®

$46.99 $96.99

Description

What we like: Triple Rail, Good for bathroom or bedroom, extra shelf on bottom

What we don’t like: Takes up space

If you don’t want screws in the walls, this freestanding wooden towel rack is the answer. Big enough for multiple towels and made with a modern bamboo finish, this towel rail makes great use of vertical space and has an extra shelf on the bottom for easy-access toiletries.

This towel rack is great for hanging towels without damaging walls. However, this does mean that it will take up more room so this wouldn’t be great for a small apartment or single bathroom. No matter your style, we think this would look great in any bathroom or bedroom for reducing clutter and wet towels on the floor.

Loon Peak®

$119.99 $199

Description

What we like: Rough Edges, Cabin Aesthetic,

What we don’t like: Relatively expensive

For the modern cottage or log cabin aesthetic, you can’t go past this stunning little log towel rail from Loon Peak. Loon Peak “live edge” lumber is carefully handled to retain the shape of the tree's natural edge and the bark is left intact so that a rustic, unique piece emerges every time.

It is wall mounted, lacquered for durability, and although it is relatively expensive for a single towel rail, it will be the finishing flourish on your neutral bathroom.

Description

What we like: Clever shape, faux-distressed wood for farmhouse vibe

What we don’t like: Hooks instead of rails

Bring functional organization and distinctive decoration to your home with this multi-colored distressed wood towel rack. It has cleverly used the word TOWELS cut out of wood for a farmhouse style bathroom or modern home with a twist.

The five dual hooks attached to the top piece mean that this is perfect for a family with lots of people using towels, though hooks mean towels won’t dry as well as rails. It is mounted using flush-mount keyhole brackets for easy installation and ensures secure mounting on most wall surfaces.

Bay Isle Home™

Description

Perfect for: Drying big and thick towels.

What We Like: Adds practical yet aesthetic storage to small bathrooms.

What We Don’t: The hardware that comes with it is of subpar quality.

Made of high-quality bamboo wood with a varnished surface, this wall-mounted towel rack is waterproof, wear-resistant, and equipped to keep moisture, mold, and mildew at bay. It is perfect for steamy bathrooms. It also has a large and sturdy rack on top, so you can organize your toiletries in compact bathrooms and still retain its aesthetic appeal. 

Designer Advice

This wooden towel shelf with towel bar offers state-of-the-art hygroscopicity and heat absorptivity. So, while it will be a great asset to any bathroom, we can’t deny its moisture-absorption benefits in the spa and sauna room. It gives you maximum bang for your buck — without bulking up your bathroom.

What Users Say

Tried to create a spa feeling in the bathroom, this works!

Description

Perfect for: Getting all the storage you need — without the wall.

What We Like: Has three well-spaced bars for hanging and air-drying towels with a bottom rack for storing slippers.

What We Don’t: Not suitable for bathrooms with limited floor space.

This freestanding burnt wood towel rack has 3 well-spaced bars, adding functional hanging space for all your washcloths, hand towels, bath towels, and robes, although you can also use it for air drying and displaying your clothing and blankets. It also features a slatted bottom shelf for extra storage, helping you keep things organized in the bathroom. Factor in clean construction and industrial black metal pipe handles, and it’s easy to notice the blend of rustic yet modern charm.  

Designer Advice

This dark brown wood towel rack adds a gorgeous rustic, contemporary touch to your toilet space. It’s waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about humidity! Plus, it’s easy to move, so you can have it in the laundry room or by the poolside to hang your lounge essentials while you take a refreshing dip.  

What Users Say

Great to hang wet towels or laundry that’s still damp. Looks good just by itself. Well made.

Wooden Bathroom Shelf With Towel Rack to Reduce the Clutter

Wooden Bathroom Shelf With Towel Rack to Reduce the Clutter

Bay Isle Home™

Description

What we like: 2-in-1 shelf with towel rack, sleek wood finish

What we don’t like: Assembly required, weight limit

Do you hate clutter as much as we do? Problem solved! This wooden shelf with a towel rail will fit right into a guest bathroom to store extra towels or in the master bathroom for extra toiletries. It is crafted from carbonized bamboo with a warm, caramel finish, and its open slat design easily holds soaps and accent decor.

It comes with hardware ready for installation, however it will still require some assembly before you put it up and is probably ill-suited to heavier objects.

Description

What we like: Multiple color choices, bottom shelf

What we don’t like: Not heavily weighted in the bottom

Nothing is worse than having wet towels or clothes on the floor of the bathroom. This towel rack solves both those problems. Now you can hang your clothes ready to go when you are finished showering and then hang your wet towel ready to use next time. There is also space at the bottom for shoes and other items you want to keep off the wet ground.

Although this has three rails, the bottom is not extremely heavily weighted so won’t be good behind a door where it might get knocked around. We love that there are multiple colors to choose from and it is super easy to assemble!

Buying Guide

The preferred types of wood for a wooden towel rack meant for the bathroom should ideally be water-resistant. Teak and Cedar are great examples of such wood, due to their natural water resistance properties which makes them more durable in moist environments typical in bathrooms.

Some of the popular styles for wooden towel racks include freestanding racks, wall-mounted racks, and over-the-door racks. All these styles come with their own charm and utility, which you can choose based on your personal preference, the space available, and the style that complements your bathroom decor.

Choosing between a hanging and standing wooden towel rack generally depends on the amount of floor space you have. If your bathroom has limited floor space, a hanging, or wall-mounted, towel rack would be preferable as it would not only save space but also add less visual clutter. Plus, hanging racks offer flexibility in terms of height placement.

The capacity of a wooden towel rack is determined by the number of bars or shelves it has for hanging or storing towels. Some racks come with a single bar for hanging, while others might offer multiple bars or shelves. Consider the number of towels you plan to hang or store on the rack to determine the capacity needed.

The finish of a wooden towel rack greatly determines its overall appearance and how well it blends with your existing decor. The finish also provides a protective layer against damage and moisture. Therefore, whether it's a natural, white-washed, or dark stained finish, choose one that suits your bathroom style and is durable.

Typically, a wooden towel rack requires minimal maintenance. Dusting off regularly and occasional wipe-down with a slightly damp cloth is usually enough to keep it looking good. If your rack is made of treated or finished wood, follow manufacturer's guidelines with regards to care and maintenance.

The choice of towel rack style largely depends on your overall home decor. For a contemporary style, sleek and geometric towel rings and wall-mounted ladder racks work well. Bronze or wooden free-standing ladder racks enhance a traditional decor. Classic decors would benefit from a dark wooden towel shelf with baroque carvings. For urban-decor homes, metal or rough-wood colored free-standing ladder racks suit well. Whereas, for modern-styled decor, simple white wall-mounted towel hooks or bars are preferred.

You can mount the wooden towel rack on any wall in your bathroom. But to ensure best usage, the rack should ideally be installed near the bathtub or shower, within an easy reach and on a surface where hanging towels won't obstruct your movement in the bathroom.
