5 Space-Saving Ways to Hang Dry Your Towels

Are you still leaving your wet bath towels in a clump on the floor or in a hamper? Well this post may be for you. Wet, crumpled up bath towels are a quick way to ruin perfectly good towels, and set your bank account back a few bucks. No matter how many times you wash them, you are shortening your towel's shelf life if you're not letting them air out to dry. 

The good news is, hang drying your towels is easy, cheap, and can even make your bathroom look better by adding some texture. 

Most homes nowadays have built in towel racks, or at least a hook to dry your towels, but if you're a frequent bather like us, you might need a bit more space to hang dry all the towels you or your family frequently use. Here are 5 ways to make more towel space. 

1. A Towel Ladder Rack

A towel ladder rack like this one not only looks nice, but adds a lot of storage space to hang multiple towels all at once. The rungs allow for multiple towel storage, and can also keep towels folded neatly flat. We like this option as you don't have to do any drilling or additional installation to get it ready for us. 

2. Over the Toilet Towel Rack

Similar to a ladder rack, these over the toilet options maximize space in your bathroom by placing it over your toilet. This option is particularly helpful especially in smaller spaces where more room is needed. 

3. Over the Door Towel Rack

If you're looking for a space saving option with minimal visibility, an over the door towel rack works wonders. Easy to install and no hardware required, racks like this one simply slip over the door to create an easy space to hang wet towels. 

4. Freestanding Towel Rack

Another fine option without needing any installation, assembly, or tools, this towel rack simply stands freely in the bathroom, laundry room, or any place you need to add extra towel storage. These are typically designed with a sturdy base to prevent tipping/falling. 

5. Wall Mounted Towel Rack

This option is one of the most popular, due to its flexible ability to be placed anywhere in the house, and save space (it's one of the best ways to reduce clutter) while dressing up empty walls at the same time. Typically these racks require mounting to the wall, which can cause holes, but if you get one fairly light like this one, you can hang it without excess damage.
