Why drape your bathroom towels over any ordinary towel rack when you can get creative and put them on display? There are dozens of different ways to easily display ordinary towels in any bathroom. You can add a fancy touch that will delight guests or add a personal touch to make bath time a special time for your kids. The following bathroom towel decorating ideas are really easy to do and they do not cost a lot of money.
Baskets, Hooks, and Racks
Start by deciding what type of display you want to use for your towels. The possibilities are probably endless, but here is a good way to start. Decide on using either baskets, hooks or racks. These are as functional as they can be decorative. You do not have to get rid of your existing towel bars if you do not want to. If they add to the overall look that you are aiming for in your bathroom, you may as well keep them intact.
Baskets can work a few ways. You can buy large, round baskets at any home décor shop and place them in a corner on your bathroom floor. Simply roll your towels into tight, smooth rolls and arrange them in the basket. It looks like something from out of a spa, but the display is simple to achieve. With this type of display, you can always add more towels in different colors on your existing towel racks. The basket might be only for bath towels while hand towels can go on the rack.
Another way to use baskets is to buy flat, rectangular baskets. Use pull and peel plastic hanging tabs hooks to secure them to your bathroom wall with the open part facing outwards. Roll up your towels and stack them in the baskets on the wall.
You can also buy racks made with rounded large hooks. The towels rest on top of the hooks and can be stacked in different sizes and colors for more appeal. You might try tacking a set of metal hooks arranged and attached to a wooden board to your bathroom wall. Place one towel on each hook for each member of the family. To personalize it, place a photo in a frame of each family member just above each hook on the wooden board.
