Once you have chosen a towel rack, you need to place it in a suitable place in the bathroom. Consider the following points:

How long should a towel rail be?

The optimal length of a towel rack depends on several factors, including the size of the towels and the space available. In a standard bathroom we recommend at least 30cm, although only smaller towels can be fully spread out.

For larger towels we recommend 45cm - 80cm.

Where do you put towel racks?

The ideal location for your towel rail can be either the wall or the side of the sink cabinet, usually at a height of around 80cm. For large bath towels, a height between 90 and 120 cm is the better choice.

Basically, a height of 1.20 meters is ideal for adults, while a height of 0.90 meters is good for children's sinks.

At what height towel hooks?

Towel hooks, on the other hand, can be hung higher than a towel rail. A general recommendation is 1.5 m above the ground. This depends on your height and the needs of your household.

Where in the bathroom should you not drill into the wall?

Caution! Installation zones, areas around sockets and light switches are taboo. There may be hidden power and water pipes here. For cables or water pipes that come out of the wall, you should not drill within a radius of 20 centimeters, as pipes can be laid both vertically and horizontally. A line finder can locate metals and lines up to a depth of six centimeters and therefore offers security.
