Top Towel Ladders

A sleek towel ladder is probably one of the hottest trends in bathrooms right now. They add dimension and height to a space and are great for pokey spots. Here’s a roundup of our favourite styles.


Let’s kick it off with some high-end ladders shall we. If money is no object, and quality and good looks take priority, you’ll want to invest in Menu’s slick towel ladder (pictured above). Available in black or white, and with a neat little leather strap at the top, it’s one scandi-liscious design – perfect for contemporary, monochromatic bathrooms.

Needing something with a mirror? This ingenious Cuba mirror ladder rack from Beeline Design pictured below left, is another great option for the bathroom – or even front entry – use it as a coat rack or to display magazines. They also have a more affordably priced option without the mirror if that’s more your thing.

Sly’s Onyx ladder is another favourite of mine – combining black powdercoated steel and Tasmanian Oak – it’s a very minimalist/contemporary style and one that will suit a lot of homes – especially since black is so hot in bathrooms right now.

The next selection of ladders are all mid range in price. First up, is Amigos De Hoy’s Floyd ladder, pictured above. And whilst it’s not pictured in a bathroom setting here, it could definitely be used in one, or any room really. Use it for hand towels, or even magazines like shown. I love the rope on this one – would work well in boho style homes.

Miss Glass Home’s clothes airer #1 pictured below, has a very Scandi aesthetic – it can be used as a clothes dryer or a towel rack. And at just under $200 it’s reasonably priced for a beautiful quality piece.


If your budget is a little tight – you need not fear. We have rounded up a selection of towel ladders all under $100.

First off the ranks is this little bamboo number (pictured above) from Kmart. At just 25 bucks it’s certainly not going to break the bank. It has a weight limit of just 3kg though, which suggests to me that it may not be all that sturdy – hey you get what you pay for. If your towels are lightweight and you don’t want to spend much – this is a great option.

If you or the hubby are handy with the tools, you may even want to whip up your own like Sarah Sherman Samuel has done in the one pictured opposite. I love the classic shape of it – plus the possibilities are endless with colour choice – leave it plain or give it a lick of paint for an instantly different look. You’ll find the tutorial for this one on her blog (click here).
