Episode Summary

EDIT
A towel bar or toilet roll holder placed in the wrong location can significantly reduce the functionality of a bathroom as well as drive a home owner crazy. Placements for towel bars, toilet roll holders and robe hooks need to be considered during the concept design stage of a bathroom project and should not be installed as after thoughts. Towel bars should be mounted 42 inches above the floor and should be sized to maximize the available space. They should not be installed behind door swings. A “hotel style” towel bar with a rack for storage can be installed above the toilet – it just needs to be mounted a little higher at 48 inches above the floor so the towels do not hit the toilet tank. Robe hooks should be mounted at 70 inches above the floor and if there are two, they should be spaced at least 9 inches apart. Robe hooks are also great for towel storage if a towel bar is not possible due to space limitations. Finally, toilet roll holders should be placed away from view, preferably on the inside edge of the vanity or on the back side of a drywall return. They should be mounted 8 inches below the height of the vanity top parallel to the edge of the toilet bowl to make sure they are easily accessible.moreless
