With hundreds of paper towel holders on the market, how do you choose the right paper towel holder? Don’t worry, here are 3 simple steps to help you select a holder that’s just right for you.
Installation Type: First think about where you want to put your holder. If you’re tight on counter space, go with either a wall mounted or under cabinet holder.. Both of these types will involve installation. Consider whether you feel comfortable drilling holes in your backsplash, wall, or kitchen cabinets.
The most popular types are paper towel stands, which are sometimes called free-standing holders. These convenient stands come in many decorative styles, and do not require installation – so there’s no need for holes in your walls or cabinets.
You can also find magnetic towel holders, which are perfect if you wish to attach your towels to your refrigerator or other metallic surface. Magnetic types are especially popular for boats and RVs.
Holder Finish or Color: Now that you’ve decided where to keep your towel roll, consider the holder’s appearance. Do you want to match your appliances? If so, consider stainless steel or chrome finishes.
How about matching other fixtures in your kitchen, such as your sink or faucet? Then a bronze or copper finish will definitely fit the bill.
If you like a rustic look in your kitchen, then you might want to consider either wrought iron or wood finishes. Another option to consider is going with a color that you like. Black and white are the two most common colors; but you can also find red, yellow, blue, and green.
Cost: Costs for towel stands and holders range from under $10 for a plastic model, to over $150 for a designer model. The best sellers are more reasonably priced at under $25.
