Towel racks are used in hanging towels in our bathrooms and kitchens. They come in various shapes, styles and dimensions, and are made with a variety of materials ranging from stainless steel to wrought iron. The design and composite material of a towel holder goes a large extent to determining its price. Towel racks are generally pricey, with prices ranging from $100 to the single rack designs to as much as $10,000 for the exotic varieties.
So we could say in essence, that towel racks are divided into three classes based on price:
- Low-cost models
- Premium models
- Luxury towel models
Low Cost Racks
These are suitable for those who are not too comfortable with the idea of coughing out large sums of money just to get a bathroom item. However, the seeming low cost comes with some quality compromises that may end up being costly in the long run. You tend to see low-quality coatings that start chipping off with time. Sometimes, “cheap” ends up being costly.
This category of towel racks generally come with better quality, chrome finishing and have better temperature regulatory controls. They also come with longer user warranty and last longer. This is where you will find racks made of stainless steel. Wrought iron racks fall into this category, and they cost anything between $400 and $1000.
These are the racks for those who wish to make a strong style statement. Luxury racks are made of brass, which is an alloy of copper and zinc. This is indeed a premium priced material and enjoys patronage from the world’s rich. They can cost anything from $3000 to $10,000. Customized versions cost even more.
As more people become more interior style-conscious, more wall-mounted racks (which have better aesthetics than the standing towel models), are finding their way into many bathroom accessory shops.
Truth is, it doesn’t really matter if the rack is an outdoor hotel towel rack or an indoor one, a wall-mounted or one of the standing towel units. They all work just fine in drying pool towels, bathing suits, hand washables, conventional bathing towels and baby’s blankets and clothes.
In today’s fast-paced world, bathroom towel racks are now becoming a must-have item as part of a modern bathroom interior design. I love to take my time to really enjoy a bath in a bathroom with great décor. If you are like me, then get out there and go grab yourself a good, stylish bathroom towel rack.
