Hanging towel hooks

Hanging towel hooks DEFAULT

How many times has your towel rack fallen off the wall or been ripped down by your kids?  I can’t believe I haven’t thought of this solution before…but I have one now!   I was wondering what to do with my  leftover wood from my basement mantle project when it dawned on me!  Hello…I can make a great towel rack for the bathroom just by using this board, a bit of stain, and some sturdy hooks!  Read on as I share just how easy it was to create this DIY towel rack!

Supplies & Tools:

1-1×8″ board cut to desired length

wood stain (I used This One)

rag or sponge for stain application

drill or screwdriver

2″ construction screws

3 Hooks (I used these ones)

Level

Stud finder

How to Build your own DIY Towel Rack:

First measure your wall and decide how long you want your towel rack.  Cut your board to the desired length.  I made 2 of these towel racks, one measuring 27″ and the other measuring 32″.

Stain the board using a rag or sponge.  I only stained the front and sides of my board with one coat of Minwax special walnut.

While your board is drying, determine where on the wall the board should hang.  I used a stud finder to find and mark where the studs were on my wall.  Using the stud marks, I then determined where I wanted my towel rack to hang.  You will want at least on stud to screw into.  If none of the studs line up with where you want your hooks placed, use wall anchors instead.

Using a drill or screwdriver, secure your dry board into the stud.  Again, make sure that this screw is placed on the board where one of your hooks will hang.  The hooks will cover the screw!  I placed my board so the center screw was on the stud.  This way I could adjust the board to level before I securing my other 2 screws in place.

Using my level & a pen, I marked a strait line about 1″ long across each screw.  The line tells you were to screw in the hooks, making sure to keep each hook level and in line with the other 2 hooks.

Secure the hooks in place covering each screw.

Shop the Look:

Now that my kids had a secure towel rack, I moved down stairs to repeat this process!  Here’s the final product!

And a little peak at the full Basement bathroom.  Im still waiting on one item before I can photograph, but I’m excited to show you the whole space soon!

Shop the Look

The possibilities are endless with this DIY towel rack.  It would even make a great coat rack in a mudroom or entry space too.  Change up the stain or paint, and personalize the hooks.  Get creative and make it your own!  If you enjoyed this DIY towel rack tutorial and love how it turned out, please help me by sharing this on Pinterest.  Just click on the pin it button on the photo below or follow me on Instagram (@Remingtonavenue) where I share tips and tricks every day!

How to Hang Bathroom Towel Hooks

Just me, or are towel bars the actual worst?! I’ve always hated them and drastically preferred to use towel hooks or robe hooks in my bathroom. I finally got around to replacing the old (falling out of the wall) towel bar in our primary bathroom with some adorable gold towel hooks, so I thought I’d share the process!

It’s a really easy project, but this sort of thing can always feel intimidating if you’ve never tried it. So, if you also hate your towel bar but don’t know where to start with replacing it, let me help. Oh, and if you do know how to replace it but are just looking for some cute towel hook ideas for your bathroom, keep reading! I’ve got some gorgeous options for you at the end of the post.

How to Install a towel hook {video tutorial}

Sometimes these things are easier to understand if you watch them happen – so I put together a quick little video tutorial for you to make it as easy as possible. I’ll break down the steps below for those of us who prefer to read, but this is a great option for you visual learners.

How to hang a towel hook

Materials needed

  • Towel hooks
  • Drill
  • Anchors {I used the ones linked here, but if the base on your hook is smaller, you’ll want an anchor with a smaller profile}
  • Tape measure
  • Level

determine where to hang the towel hook

I based my spacing entirely on where the holes from the towel bar were. I had a giant hole in the wall from an anchor that wasn’t properly installed, so I needed to cover that up with the base of my towel hook.

A good rule of thumb, though, is to place your first towel hook about 8-10″ from the edge of your shower – that makes it easy to reach from inside the shower. Then, place the remaining towel hooks about 12″ apart from one another.

As far as how high to hang your towel hook, the bottom of mine are at 57″ from the ground. Personally, I’d say anywhere in the range of 55″-60″ is an probably ideal height.

install the anchors

You’ll want to install a drywall anchor for your towel hook if you aren’t going into a stud. Towels aren’t that heavy, but they’re definitely heavy enough to need some extra support!

There are a ton of different types of anchors you can use, and your towel hook may come with one. If it doesn’t, these are my personal favorite. The head of the anchor is pretty large, though, so if you’re using a daintier towel hook you’ll probably want to use something more like this.

To install the anchors, simply hold the towel hook on the wall where you want to place it, then use a pen to mark where the holes should go. Install the anchors into the wall where you’ve marked!

hang the towel hook

With the anchors installed, you’re ready to add the towel hook! Just place it on top of the anchors with the holes in the towel hook lining up with the holes in the anchors, and use the screws that came with your hook to attach it.

I’ll note that many different brands of towel hooks will have different processes for hanging them. These instructions are for a very basic towel hook that is simply hung by a screw on either side of the base. Others may come with fancier systems that require a different process – be sure to read any directions that come with your anchor for the best results!

This is such a small little change, but my goodness it has a big impact! I can’t even begin to tell you how much better it feels in here with the towel hooks versus the towel bar. It instantly feels so much cleaner and more put together when the first thing you see isn’t a giant jumble of towels hanging on a bar that you can’t even see because it’s so overstuffed.
