Ideas for Paper Towels for a Bathroom

A bathroom hand towel used by more than one person spreads germs. Paper towels used by one person, then disposed of, helps in preventing the spread of germs and disease. Assorted designs of decorative paper towel holders, dispensers, baskets and containers complement any decor style. Elegantly designed guest towels and environmentally friendly paper towels are additional paper towel ideas for the bathroom.


Common types of bathroom paper towel holders include free-standing and wall-mounted versions. Consisting of a base with a centre rod to hold the paper towels, a free-standing holder sits on a bathroom vanity. Wall-mounted holders feature a centre rod holding paper towels between two wall- mounted brackets. Paper towel holders created in stainless steel, acrylic, wood and chrome are well-suited for any bathroom decor.


Manual or automatic paper towel dispensers for the bathroom provide apportioned, effortless dispensing. Touchless, wall-mounted dispensers automatically present a new paper towel when one is torn off, and are commonly battery operated. Manual dispensers contain folded paper towels that dispense one at a time as they're individually pulled out.

Decorative Paper Towels

Geometric shapes, modern florals and tree-leaf design prints add colour and variety to bathroom paper towel rolls. Vanity baskets--displaying disposable guest towels--can be crafted from metal, wood or natural woven fibres, and are available in an array of styles and colours. Monogrammed paper guest towels add a touch of luxury to any bath decor. Disposable guest towels in assorted seasonal prints, solid colours and decorative designs extend a warm welcome to guests.

Eco-Friendly Paper Towels

Environmentally friendly paper towels are manufactured from recycled products, reducing the need for virgin wood pulp. Using recycled paper towels in your bathroom helps to save trees. Eco-friendly towels include hypoallergenic varieties that are free of dyes and fragrances and are whitened without chemicals containing chlorine. Perforated half-sheet paper towels minimise waste.
