Towel stands clear up space, since you can toss you towels on the stand rather than in the floor or on a chair. Online you will find a nice selection of stands created by Drop, Onda, Premier, Freestanding, and so on.
How do I choose stands?
It depends on your style of bath and taste. If you want modern styles check out the line of Drops.
Onda also has a nice collection of contemporary fittings and otherbath accessories. If you have a regal taste, you may want to re view the Freestanding Spas, or the line of Premiers. If you want décor yet are on a budget, checkout the line of Freestanding Holders.
Just out of curiosity, I thought I would check out the line of spa stands. The stands are made of chrome and brass, such as Satin brass. In addition, you have a choice of oil rub bronze, brass, chrome, and satin nickel.
Preferably, I like the brass in regal, modern, or Victorian environments. On the other hand, the brass will go well in nearly any bathroom. The oil rub is nice if you have a country bathroom or antique atmosphere.
How much do the stands cost?
It depends on your choice. If you choose the spas, you can find the items online in the price range between $67 and $82.
How do I choose modern stands?
Again, I am not into chrome, yet in the instance of Drops products I like the triple stands, which could go well with matching mirrors in the background. Add a little gold trimming to your layered mirrors and you will have a combination of modern and regal patterns.
The item looks well with a vanity glass shelf in the background as well. Keep the gold at bay in this instance; rather offset it with minute trims of gold. Of course, your taste is different from mine, so check out the images for your self.
Chrome and Satin Nickel texture is not up my alley, yet Premier has created a nice line of dual spa stands. In a peach, tan, or antique environment I would sit the stands in a corner to offset the atmosphere. Throw a few light color towels on the stand, such as tan and you have a very nice antique pattern.
Premier stands are a bit pricey, so if you are on budgeting, check out the line of Freestanding. You have a choice of Satins, Brass, Chrome, and so on.
How do I choose from the line of Onda?
Onda has a nice selection of stands, yet you may want to save a few bucks before considering the items. If you are not worried about price, you may enjoy the chrome triple polished stands, gold/chrome polish, brass and/or chrome polish. The styles go well in white and tan textures.
If you are searching for gorgeous vanity stands, you may consider the rings and stands made by freestanding collections. You have choice of one, two, or three arm stands, or else you can choose the dual ring stands. The oil rub bronze three-arm stand would look great in an antique bath, or a country setting.
On the other hand, the 3-arm Satin Nickel stands would look great in antique environments, or country settings, especially if you sprinkle a few white/yellow flowers at the base.
Throw a white towel on and you are set. The stands however, I believe are designed for modern baths or master bathrooms.
You may like the ring stands, but keep in mind it will take more effort on your part to place your towel. If you are in a hurry often, go for the arm stands.
