How do I hang towel bars?

Hanging towel bars

Hanging a towel bar may seem a rather mundane matter, and, well, it is, really. Still, there are a few things you need to know to make sure your towels are always well hung. The standard hanging height for your towel bar seems to be 48 inches above the floor. This will leave leave enough space below the bars for towels to hang freely. If, however, you hang the towel bar in a children's bath, place the bar at a height of 36 inches. To add a stylish element to the bath, a double towel bar is an ideal accessory. If you want to add some elan to your family bath, and hang more towels per square foot, put up double towel bars. One other thing: Don't hang towel bars over electrical switches or outlets. (Duh.)
