Have you ever noticed that the people who design bathrooms expect only one or two people to use a towel? Sometimes they even place the towel rack above the toilet. What are they thinking? 🙂 With six kids sharing a bathroom I needed a big solution. I tried over the door racks but my kids were too short to reach the rack. This led to wet towels on the floor and the racks getting pulled off the door by kids trying to reach their towels.
A few years ago I got smart and did something about this dilemma. I found a five hook coat rack and hung it at kid’s eye level. Now my kids can hang up their own towels and there is a space for every towel. I paid ten dollars for the rack at IKEA, but have seen them at every home improvement store as well as Target and Walmart.
This also works well in a guest bathroom. I never know what to do when we are visiting someone and there is no obvious place to put my towel. This solution takes up little space and solves a big problem.
