Dear How to Decorate,
What is the proper height to hang bath towel bars and hand towel rings?
Thank you for your questions. Generally speaking, the average height of a towel bar should be 48 inches from the floor. This is also true for the hand towel ring.
If you are hanging towel bars in a children’s bath, you may want to hang the bar lower (36 inches from the floor). As the child grows, you can move the bar to 48 inches.
We do hope this info helps!
