It’s great when accessories do double duty especially in a bathroom where space can be tight. A house in Italy features a charming custom towel rack, the shape of a ladder, which has a special sweetness due to the heart motif and bamboo bars. This is a piece a talented carpenter could easily copy and it would look good painted, too.
A more industrial approach to custom towel racks in a cottage bathroom is from Mark and Sally Bailey’s book “Simple Home.” That consists of exposed copper plumbing pipes, bracketed to the wall, and used as a place to hang towels. This one is relatively simple and if these are hot water pipes this rack will warm towels as well. These are two aesthetic extremes and other examples might include vintage pieces like old-fashioned ladders or blanket holders. Allison also explored another use for Exposed Copper Piping around the sink.
