A Towel Shelf is a must-have Bath Accessory. Sanliv Towel Shelf is a great way of adding additional storage for your towels in the bathroom or linen cupboard. They are not difficult to install and these towel shelves can look very stylish. With so many materials to choose from, you are sure to match your existing bathroom decor.
These bathroom shelves allow you to store folded towels neatly either on one or two shelving units. There is no facility provided to hang towels however. If you wish to have the facility to hang your bath or hand towels, then you would need to look at a railed towel rack or ring.
The great thing about towel racks is that you have the opportunity not only hang your towels, but you can also have them folded on a top shelf. Essentially this provides the towel shelf functionality, but also adding an additional facility to hang them too.
It is important to think about the location. Remember that there are pipes and electrical wiring running through the walls in your bathroom. These shelves need to be attached to the wall by drilling and fixing them with screws. If you are not sure where your piping runs, it is better to get in an expert. You can purchase a metal detector that tells you if there are any wires or plumbing in the wall cavity. Better to be safe than sorry.
An alternative to screws and drilling is to go for ones with suction cups. this attaches straight to the tiles without any worry of making holes in the wall or cracking the tiles. There is a down side to this though, you cannot make them too heavy or else it will detach from the wall and come crashing down.
Most of these towel shelves look modern as they are generally made from glass or chrome. Both of these materials provide a sleek finish to give a contemporary look to the bathroom. They are very good in humid and wet conditions and very easy to keep clean. With the glass versions, you have the opportunity to buy them as frosted glass or clear glass. Both are tempered which means that they are very difficult to break.
