Choosing simple fittings: towel racks and toilet roll holders

Towel racks and toilet roll holders are essential fittings in most bathrooms, but from time to time you will be faced with the sometimes unexpected decision to replace them.

Whether you are well overdue for an upgrade, your fitting has broken overnight or you’re choosing a new bathroom fitting for the first time, our Hubbies are here to help.

This week they’re sharing some important considerations when buying new bathroom fittings.

Location, location, location. It’s all about location.

  • Before you go out and buy a new towel rack or toilet roll holder, consider the space in your bathroom. You don’t want to buy a multi-tiered towel rack that may clutter a smaller bathroom. Choose something simple that meets your requirement and works well in the space.
  •  Towel racks should also be positioned in an area that doesn’t get splashed with water and they should be positioned away from the bath or shower to avoid people using it to lift or steady themselves.
  • Our Hubbies recommend towel racks be positioned at a height of about 120 to 170cm, so factor this into the size and style or your fitting. Have an idea in your head of what fitting may work at this height.
  • Take measurements of the designated wall and/or a photo of the chosen room before heading down to buy your fitting. These provide a great reference to help guide your selection of size and style.

If you can’t find the time to install bathroom fittings yourself or DIY simply isn’t your thing, leave it up to the professionals. Give Hire A Hubby a call on 1800 803 339 and our Hubbies will be happy to help.
