Homeowner Basics

Hi guys. So I thought we might do a little Homeowners 101 post and get back to basics. So the great folks that are sponsoring this post have put together an article on the proper way to install a towel bar. Also find some yummy bathroom eye candy below.

Before installing a towel bar you should do a little pre-planning. Here
are some of the important points that you need to keep in mind-

• the towel bar should be placed in such a way, that all the family
members including the children could readily access it.

• make sure the towel bar is placed somewhere the towels won't get wet

• keep in mind that if you install it behind the bathroom door, the bar might become damaged or, damage the door and the adjoining walls since repetitive opening and closing

The standard height at which the bar should be places is 48 inches or about 4 feet off the ground. This height is recommended especially when you have smaller children. Any higher and they won’t be able to reach the towel bar on their own. Any lower and the towel bar can get in the way
of mobility.

Read the instructions for the installation of the towel bar to install. Use a measuring tape and mark with a pencil the four points or the two points where the fasteners or the screws for the towel bar will be.

After that, hold the hand drill straight and make small holes for the screws. Now install the screws and the fasteners, securing them well.

Terrys Fabrics is online store where you will get range of quality products of ready made curtains and curtain fabrics to compliment with curtain poles and window blinds available at the best value for money.

I really like "regular" furniture in the bathroom - like the sideboard you see on the left.

Ooh, those blue shutters are GORGEOUS.

Awesome advice! I would add, using a level to make sure the towel bar is straight would help, too. I'm the queen of hanging stuff sideways unless I use my level. 0:)

Thanks for the advice on posting the towel bar. I just purchased a bunch of Bathroom Hardware and got some beautiful hooks to go along with my towel bars. I will make sure to use a level also, thanks Laura for the advice!
