Tips and Tricks of the Trade: 
Genius Ways Towel Bars Can Help You 
Organize Your Entire Home!

According to Dabney Frake, contributor for Apartment Therapy, "Like  curtain rods , towel bars have so much untapped potential. Take them out of the bathroom and they become decluttering superstars, capable of keeping hundreds of things tidy and out of the way. Go beyond linens, and think about shoes, cleaning supplies, accessories, kitchen utensils, and even plants and tools. See all the ways a basic bar can help organize your entire house."


1. Enhancement in the Kitchen
If you have a mobile kitchen island, add a towel bar to one side. Above, the brass bar for kitchen towels is a great addition to this table-turned-kitchen-island from Petal & Ply. A simple hook would do the trick as well.

2. Closet Clean-up!

One of the best strategies for keeping your closet clean is to have the right storage for each and every item in there. The Chronicles of Home added some towel bars for scarves which turned a bare wall into that perfect spot.

3. Additional Wall Storage

If have a little extra wall space, you can mount a bar to the wall and add s-hooks to hang your bags. This home, from  Refinery29 , used an inexpensive bar in the entryway and doubled its storage capacity.

4. More Help in the Kitchen
Mount a bar underneath your kitchen cabinets for an extra storage boost. It's a great place to hang often-used utensils and mugs. Swoonworthy went a step further and glammed up her GRUNDTAL system with a little bit of gold spray paint.

   5. A Pleasant Place for Plants
If you can find a bar that's long enough to span your window, it's a fantastic place to  hang some plants , especially herbs that need lots of sun.
