Bathroom renovation - help me choose a towel storer!

Have just bought one of the towel stackers in the picture below, and it doesn’t look the same when I fold my towels and put them in - also anything smaller than a bath sheet sort of falls through. Has anyone found a stacker/shelves that work well for you for storing towels? All the bathroom shelves I’ve seen are tiny for soap etc.
I have no airing cupboard so storage in the bathroom is essential.
Bathroom being done this week so worrying about a rush decision!
TIA

Can't see a picture, but moving to a new build with no airing cupboard so would be interested...

Yikes, sorry about that - hope this works.
We store towels in dc bedroom at the moment but as he gets older I'm sure he won't want us running in and out of his room...

I think you need a hotel-style towel rack. I just had a look, can't see any today.

It's useful to have several, they can go just above head-height if you are short of space, do you don't bash into them, as long as everyone in the house can reach.

If you have a long radiator, you can put several on the wall over it.

Stainless steel or painted are somewhat preferable to chromed steel, which is prone to rust.

Thank you, I’ve been trying to visualise what all the hotels I’ve stayed in had! I have seen metal shelf with towel rail under, but at around 600 that’s bigger than the space I have on the (only) wall it will fit. Might not be able to to reach it well (will be over the bath) so will keep thinking!

I've got towel racks over the bath, wouldn't recommend it. Sometimes you reach up and they all fall in the water.;

cheaper than I thought The Habitat ones used to be about £50.

400mm is a good depth, I think.

Thanks for the link, lots cheaper than the Bristan one! There won't be a problem with anyone knocking towels in the bath as once it's finished I will not be allowing anyone else to use it. It's mine all mine! awaits report to social services for smelly children
