Small Space Solutions: Bathroom Train Rack

While I love my new bathroom, I had to come up with a new solution for towels with this configuration. In my old bathroom, I had a standard door where I utilized an over the door unit with a bunch of hooks to hold (and hide) all of my bathroom towels.

My new bathroom has a pocket sliding door… which eliminates my previous towel solution. I searched for a couple weeks for different styles of towel storage units… I didn’t want to take up any floor space, so that eliminated many possibilities. I wanted something compact and clean-looking and budget-friendly…

Enter: the train rack.

They are usually seen at hotels rather than homes, but it was the best option for my situation. It took a bit of searching to find one that was the correct size and that wouldn’t set me back several hundred dollars. Apparently most run anywhere from $150-500. Insane. But, I did eventually find one on Amazon for much cheaper- $22 to be exact.

I gave one of the maintenance workers in my building$10 to install it for me (I’m the self-proclaimed buy-not DIY kind of person), and a few minutes later, I had this!

And now my smaller towel bar is back to it’s intended use- holding my cute West Elm hand towels.

It was a bit of a frustrating process trying to figure out a solution but after I came up with the train rack idea, it all worked out! Would definitely recommend this for any small-bathroom dwellers out there. Happy Friday and hope you all have a great weekend!
