How High Should I Mount My Bathroom Towel Holders?

Lead Image

For bathroom towel holders to be positioned conveniently, it is important to give some thought to the location. Ensure that the towel will be within reach from the sink. Also consider the height of everyone in the household. The most often recommended height for a bathroom towel holder is 48-inches from the floor.

Standard Height

If you opt to use this standard measurement, you will be playing it safe because it has been calculated based on the average height of most adults. It also takes into consideration the length of the towel, so as to avoid having it hanging too near the floor.

How to Install

To install the towel holder, locate the wall studs using a stud finder. Mark it with a pencil. Put a level against the wall and adjust it to make sure the holder is level. Position the towel bar at this location, making sure the screw holes line up with the marks on the wall. Use a screwdriver to drill holes into the wall for the towel holder.
