We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. There are surprisingly few natural places to hang a towel in most bathrooms. Tossing one over the shower rod is not a tidy option and slinging it over the door makes it hard to shut it entirely. These towel racks are a wonderful way to keep these critical linens nearby at all times and give them a spot to thoroughly dry. We found elegant, sturdy models that will suit a variety of decors. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best towel stand on Amazon.
