Are you over your cluttered linen closets and having towels falling or bulging out of cabinets? If you're in need of some towel storage inspiration, you're in the right place. Towels are an essential part of any bathroom (unless you’re one of the lucky ones that has a shower with an in-built full body dryer), but that doesn't mean they have to be stored in a boring or chaotic way.
Stylish towels can really bring a bathroom to life, so if you want to bring them front and centre, there are several ways to do it.
From ladder shelves to baskets and beyond, there are so many stylish and functional options for storing towels. In this article, we'll explore 9 towel storage ideas to help you find the perfect solution for your space and needs in 2023 and beyond.
1. Stacked Under the Vanity
If you have storage space under your vanity, storing your towels underneath can be an effective way to add some colour and softness to your bathroom - especially if you have particularly eye-catching towels. While this towel storage styling idea works best if you already have inbuilt storage under your vanity, some vanities have a gap underneath where you could store your towels in a wicker basket or something similar.
2. Folded on a Portable Cadd
Portable caddies are a great solution for towel storage, especially in shared bathrooms where each person can have their own dedicated shelf. They're also a practical option if you’re not looking to invest in permanent shelving just yet. The towel styling idea here is straightforward - fold and stack them, and then style around the caddy. It's an easy, affordable, and quick way to add some organisation and style to your bathroom.
3. Hung on Hooks
While hooks are usually reserved for towels that you’re using, you can absolutely use hooks as storage for your towels as well. There are countless trending and stylish hooks to store your towels on – you can checkout Buildmat’s range here. A matte white, black or brushed brass gold hook with draped towels becomes a style moment in its own right – and of course you can also hang your bathrobes on them too.
4. Folded Over a Ladder
If you're short on space in your bathroom, a ladder can be a great and stylish storage solution for your towels. It takes up minimal floor space and can add a chic touch to your bathroom if you choose a ladder that complements the colour scheme. Using a ladder can help you maximise the available space in your bathroom, whilst also being on-trend and an excellent way to showcase your beautiful towels front and centre.
5. Hung on Stylish Towel Rail
Elevate the look and feel of your bathroom with your towels draped over a beautiful towel rail. While towel rails are typically used for towels being used, there’s no reason you can’t store your towels over your towel rail – especially if it is a double towel rail. From black to brushed brass gold, to brushed gunmetal and brushed nickel, Buildmat has a range of stunning towel rails to take your towel storage and bathroom game to the next level.
6. Popped in a Textural Basket
Textural wicker baskets never seem to go out of style, meaning they’re a trendy towel storage idea in 2023. This styling idea is similar to the ‘store under the vanity’ idea, but has more of an eye-catching factor to it. You can store wicker baskets wherever you have the space, but we love this styling idea of having floating shelf wicker baskets for optimal storage space that adds a spa-like feel to your bathroom.
7.Stacked on a Floating Shelf
Floating shelves are a great way to add storage to a small bathroom. They take up minimal floor space and can be mounted on the wall or even above the door to save even more space. You can roll or fold your towel on a floating shelf and add decorative pieces around it like plants and other storage baskets to really make the most of the space and give your bathroom a ‘wow’ factor.
8. Floating Towel Rack
Keeping with the floating theme, a floating towel rack is a super stylish and on-strend towel storage idea. From gold metal to wooden planks, there are several ways to add a floating towel rack to your bathroom. Not only does it look good, but you can fit multiple rolled towels inside making it a great space-saving storage solution.
9. Gold Wire Storage Baskets
Gold continues to be a trend in 2023, so why not store your towels in a striking gold wire basket? From budget options to more luxe baskets, there are countless gold wire baskets to suit your budget and bathroom size. You can store your towels in small baskets on floating shelves, or have a large gold wire basket sit on the floor of your bathroom as a style (and storage) piece in itself.
New Year, New Bathroom
There are many stylish and functional options for storing towels in your bathroom. From ladder shelves to baskets and beyond, you can choose a storage solution that works for your space and needs. Whether you want to bring your towels front and centre as a design element or keep them tucked away for practicality, there's a towel storage option for you. With these ideas in mind, you can say goodbye to clutter and hello to a well-organised and stylish bathroom in 2023.
