These kitchen towel racks are intended to provide convenient, yet unobtrusive, holders for drying damp cloths and tea towels. They are easily installed, as they require little or no fixing, and come in a range of styles and finishes that will suit your existing decor and accessories. If your kitchen is short on space, they can even be fitted inside cabinets or under countertops.

Editor's Notes

May 04, 2020:

Damp, odorous towels scattered around your kitchen, and on your countertops, is neither hygienic nor pleasant to look at. A good quality towel holder provides a useful place for drying and keeps your surfaces free of clutter. They come in a variety of styles for different sizes, and in a range of finishes to match your faucets and hardware.

If you prefer your towels to be out of sight, then a holder that can be mounted inside a cabinet would be ideal. The mDesign Modern Metal and the Spectrum Diversified Door Ring both require no installation, and are reversible for interior use. The Decko Swing and the Knape & Vogt are versatile with different mounting options, such as under countertops or behind doors.

For Kitchens that are tight on space, the HEFA Chrome Holders and the Kes Hanger are extremely compact and affix using only adhesive tape, meaning they can be removed and repositioned with ease. Similarly, the Yeaves swivel has a very low profile when folded back to the wall.

Larger options are the KES Towel Shelf, which has multiple hanging and stacking spaces, and the AmazonBasics Double-T, which is designed to sit on the countertop and in close proximity to your sink and drying area.
