36 Luxury Freestanding Towel Racks For Modern Bathrooms


After Covid, people would like to add more ergonomic and luxury products to their daily routine since the house is for not only living. As a bathroom remodeling advisor, I would like to give some details about freestanding towel racks ideas.

Free-standing towel racks are not only a bathroom decoration. Besides this, it is very useful and it is also a protecting agent for your wall tiles. Compared with a wall-mounted rack there is no more nailing and cracking on your walls or full high backsplash. Your bathroom backsplash will keep its beauty with this agent. 

Product designers work hard to make the best fit of a free-standing towel stand in your bathroom. There are many different types of racks and many different materials can be picked. For the best satisfying result, you can even pick with a heated free-standing towel rack as well.

Free-standing racks with tiers, free-standing racks with tiers and shelf under. Double-sided free-standing racks, layered tiers free-standing racks, branched legged freestanding racks, valet rack.

Contemporary bathroom design: Fascinating marble! If I am not mistaken, only the ceiling is not covered by marble. A marble vessel sink, marble waterfall edge vanity top, marble flooring, full high marble backsplash satisfy your feelings. Freestanding bathtub and t shaped freestanding towel racks are the best picks.

Free Standing Towel Rack and Flooring Options

Large white ceramic floor tile and large withe ceramic full high backsplash, black towel cabinet, and white egg shape soaking bathtub. The twin black iron ladder towel rack provides more room for the towels.

Types of Freestanding Towel Racks & Stand

A round upcycled standing towel rack seems vintage but blends well with the design immensely. Bronze forged iron bathroom chandeliers are an excellent choice to make a balance between the slate colors, vanity color, and wall color.

Clear glass shower door and semi-gloss subway-style shower tile go well immensely with the other elements. Sheepskin bathroom rug also has two roles: Makes some transition in between design elements and soft-touch after the bath. !

Vintage ladder style towel rack, espresso vanity with white marble top and travertine flooring, and ample bathroom daylight are limited by bamboo semi-transparent privacy bathroom curtain.

Ladder Style Towel Rack

The ladder needs to lean on the wall.

Stools are very popular, especially for smaller bathrooms. 

Freestanding Towel Rack by Materials

Stainless Steel Towel Rack Stand

Mostly you can find them in different finishes like brushed nickel, brushed bronze, polished metal base, etc. The advantage of stainless steel free-standing towel racks may warm your towel. 

Cast Iron Free-standing Towel Racks

Cast iron-free-standing towel racks are also called forged iron-free-standing towel racks. 

Eco-Friendly Towel Racks

Eco-friendly towel racks would be wood, bamboo, teak, or even thick hemp rope.

I think it is time to daydream while looking at my selection for you. 


Bathroom Decorations Beside The Freestanding Towel Rack

Beach house bathroom design would not be defined without having shades of turquoise blue and nice bathroom decoration such as freestanding towel rack next to standing soaking bathtub, floating plate, shy angle, and seashells in a jar.

Gorgeous copper clawfoot soaking bathtub, terracotta brick flooring with copper connections, handmade Turkish Rug, Hickory vanity with granite top, and pebble stone backsplash. Shower tiles are full high granite backsplash and the shower separation wall has wonderful inlet windows bordered by patterned ceramic tile and mosaic travertine backsplash. Using the vintage iron valet stand aka Men’s Butler as a freestanding towel rack is a great idea.
