How to Hang Towels in Bathroom – Follow 6 Steps

Step 1: Start with the most basic method of hanging towel

Before going into any complicated methods of hanging towels, let’s start with the most basic one. At first, lay the towel on a flat surface. A countertop in your bathroom or a table in your bedroom will be fine. You will need a large surface so that you can spread the whole towel.

Before laying the towel on the flat surface, clean it with a rag so that there is no dust or germs. You will need to be careful because you will be using the towel after a shower. You wouldn’t want any dirt to get in touch with your body after a nice shower.

Step 2: Fold the towel and hang it in the towel ring

After laying the towel, it is time to fold it. Hold the longer edge with your hand and fold it by bringing the edge in the middle. Do this for both sides and make sure the edges of the towel touch each other. Now, hold the towel carefully and hang it on the towel bar. It is as simple as that. There is no tricky or difficult way to do this. After hanging the towel in the towel ring, make sure that the hanging ends of the towel are at the same height. Place the folded towel at the center of the towel ring.

Step 3: Hang another hand towel along with the bath towel

You will probably want an extra towel that will be needed to wipe your hands only. Hand towels are usually smaller than bath towels. So, you can hang the smaller towel over the bigger one. To hang the smaller towel in the bathroom, you will need to do the same thing. You will need to fold it into three parts vertically. After folding the smaller towel, put it over the bath towel. You can always use colorful towels.

If the interior of your bathroom has gray and black color, you can always use white towels to go with. On the other hand, if the interior of your bathroom has pink colors, you might want to use baby pink colored towels. The preference is up to you as long as the color of the towel compliments the bathroom.

Step 4: Make a lip fold on your bath towel

Now, let’s be a little more creative than before. There is no fun in going with the basic techniques. What if you can make a towel pocket and decorate it with a washcloth? Let’s see how you can do it. For making a pocket in the towel, you will need to lay the towel on a flat surface. Like before, fold the long edges and bring the edges in the middle so that the middle parts touch each other.

Now, you will need to fold it in half. Then, you can drape it on the towel ring. Now, you will need another hand towel. Lay it on a flat surface. The folding part of this hand towel will be a bit different from the previous one. Hold the hand towel and fold the shorter edge around a quarter to the middle. To make a lip fold, you will need to fold that particular edge in backward. That is how you will be able to make a lip fold.

Step 5: Create a small pocket out of the lip fold

Now, place the towel upside down. Place the folded lip part faced down on the flat surface. Now, you will need only one side of the towel. Fold it and bring the edge in the middle. Fold the other edge of the towel as well so that you can tuck it into the lip that you have created earlier. When you flip the towel, you will see that you have made a pocket.

You can use this pocket to put lotion, shampoo or any other smaller hand towel. You can also keep your phone in this pocket while you listen to songs and have a nice shower. You can use the pocket in different ways. However, keep an extra towel along with it so that you don’t have to fold it every time you get a shower.

Step 6: Decorate the pocket with a washcloth

Along with the shampoos and conditioners, you can also fold a washcloth and keep it in the pocket of the towel. You can fold the washcloth a bit creatively to keep it in the towel. You will see that many restaurants keep hand towels in their tables this way. You can fold the washcloth like this and keep it in the pocket of the towel. To fold the washcloth, lay it on a flat surface. Now create pleats that will overlap each other. Fold the washcloth in half and keep it on the pocket of the towel.

These are the ways through which you can hang dry towels on towel bars in the bathroom. The most important thing about hanging a towel is that people should be able to reach it when needed. For example, you wouldn’t want to hang towel rings so high that people cannot reach it. Or, the distance from the faucet and the towel ring is too far. You can always display the towels differently based on your preference.
