A Guide to How to Decorate Your Bathroom with Towels

Towels are always at the top the list of bathroom essentials, and many people think of towels as purely functional and practical items. But this perception can make your towels more of an eyesore than decorative pieces that enhance the aesthetics of your space.

In this article, we’re highlighting a few design-oriented ways to display towels in a bathroom and how to decorate your bathroom with towels. We’ll also address common questions like where to put towels in a small bathroom and how to fold towels decoratively for a sophisticated and beautiful look.

Where to Place Hand Towels in Bathroom

Hand towels have a double duty of drying your hands after washing them and also adding style to your bathroom décor. But you might not be sure where to place hand towels in your bathrooms because of outlet placement or proximity to the toilet. Towel rings are great for hand towels because they allow these small-size towels to dry without taking up a lot of space. You can also roll up extra hand towels on an exposed shelving unit for easy guest accessibility.

Where to Put Towels in a Small Bathroom

Even if your bathroom is small, you’ll want to make room for towels to dry after each use. If you’re pressed for space, you can hang towels on a hook on the back of the bathroom door or install a towel rack in this area. For small bathrooms, we also love utilizing towel rings because they save on space and add a visible decorative element to the wall space. Another idea is to add a second tension rod in front of your shower to hang towels while they dry in a small area.

How to Arrange Towels on Towel Bar

To make your bathroom feel more like a high-end hotel or spa, start by ensuring that your towel size makes sense with the size of towel racks you have. Start with the largest towels first, folding them into halves or thirds. Fold one-third of it from the left over onto the towel, and the opposite one-third over from the right and on top of the left-side fold. Then after folding these big bath towels in half, fold one-quarter of it over from the left and one-quarter of it over from the right so both sides end up in the middle. Once you find a fold that you like, add hand towels in a contrasting color or pattern on top of the bath towels, and finally top it all off with a folded washcloth over the hand towel that matches the bath towel.

Creative Decorative Towel Ideas

Many homeowners and apartment-dwellers save their creative side for living rooms and bedrooms, but there are some great ways that you can get creative with bathroom décor as well. Every good towel display starts with beautiful towel bars that are decorative and functional at the same time. Fortunately, you can find many great towel bar options by browsing one of our beautiful New York showrooms. Some of the most creative towel displays we’ve seen involve using a wine rack to store towels, installing a warming towel rack for soothing comfort, and picking up a few quirky towel hooks to add character to your bathroom.

How to Fold Towels Decoratively in the Bathroom

It’s always useful to have extra towels in the bathroom to replace your current one that needs laundering or for guest use. You can fold towels decoratively for display in a glass case between the vanity and wall, place folded towels on a recessed shelf at the base of the vanity, or display towels prominently on a tall and skinny ladder-style shelf in the bathroom. We also carry a wide selection of bathroom storage options to help you show off your decorative towels and impressive folding skills!
