Buying Guide

Wooden towel stands can be invaluable to any bathroom. They can provide an extra holding area for wet towels and add a new piece of exquisite furniture to your bathroom. Most of the wooden towel stands you will find in the market at the moment are very simple. There’s nothing too elaborate about them, just a simple stand where you can hang your towels. However, even with this simplicity, there are still a few features you should be looking out for before you buy.

On average, a wooden towel stand won’t fill an entire bathroom length and it will also be shorter in height. As you begin shopping for a new stand, you need to assess the size of your bathroom carefully and pick a small and compact stand that doesn’t create too much clutter. If you have a big bathroom, then you have the luxury to go for a bigger size but most designs are relatively smaller. It seems that a lot of manufacturers of wooden towel stand designs presume that the majority of their customers will be people with small bathrooms. This is probably the main reason why most stands tend to be small and compact.

There are many finishing options out there. While some stands may feature wood grain finishes to offer a rugged and more natural feel, others are softer and laminated. The colors on the finishing are also going to differ from one stand to another. However, brown earthy tones are very popular with wooden stands. Due to the simplicity of wooden towel stand designs out there, the only feature that can help embellish their look even more is the finishing.

There are two things you need to consider as you pick the design for the stand. First, how many towels do you think it can hold? Most stands are designed to hold one or two towels but some can actually hold more. As a rule of thumb, you don’t want to clutter your stand and by extension your bathroom with too many towels. A maximum of three in every stand is recommended. In addition to this, smaller and compact stands for smaller bathrooms cannot hold a lot of things. The style, on the other hand, is basically how the stand looks. It’s about aesthetics and not function. In that case, always pick something appealing.

Finally, you need to pick a stand that can be used in any kind of bathroom. Although this is relatively hard since most wooden towel stand designs are made for specific types of bathrooms, if you look close enough you may be able to find versatile solutions that can work. Stands that can stand on their own or hang on the wall should be ideal to give you the level of versatility you need.

Getting high-quality wooden towel stand designs out there should be an easy job. It’s all about finding something that works for you.
