Those who own a pool will appreciate the difficulty in keeping the area tidy and preventing accidents. Without an adequate place to keep towels, accessories, and toys, they will invariably end up scattered across the floor or draped over furniture. To eliminate this problem, a good quality towel rack will not only provide a place to store and dry your towels, but often they incorporate additional storage, for things like sunscreen, goggles, flippers, and even inflatables.
For smaller outdoor areas a compact option may be the best choice. The Outdoor Lamp Company Patio is wall mounted and will leave your floor space intact, however, it's really only suitable to hold a few towels. The Milliard Portable Towel Tree and the O2cool Pool & Spa Valet are similar in design to a coat rack and take up minimal room, the latter incorporates a swiveling accessory tray to hold small items. The Southern Enterprises Mission has a similar design but notably is made from hardwood, giving it a much nicer look, however, it will require yearly oiling or varnishing to prevent weather deterioration. The AquaTeak Sula is another wooden option that, as the name suggests is made from teak, a wood known to be naturally water-resistant and durable.
For those where space isn't an issue, perhaps a larger rack or even a caddy might be preferable. The Outsunny Outdoor Cabinet and the Crosley Furniture Palm Harbor are both cabinet style racks and are made from all-weather rattan which is UV-resistant. The Wassers Outdoor Rack and the Outdoor Lamp Company 405B are both made from PVC pipe and are large enough to hold multiple towels and other accessories with ease, however, they may not fare so well if kept in direct sunlight. The MBQQ Industrial, on the other hand, is made from steel with a black powder-coated finish, making it an elegant, corrosion-resistant, and well-proportioned choice.
