Coat Racks or Towel Racks

I've looked through a number members photos looking to see what others have done for coat hooks or racks or towel racks.

We purchased a new Wildwood and there is no hooks or racks in the bathroom and I wanted to know what to watch out for when mounting anything on the walls.


Can I mount on the outside walls and what method should be used along with types of hardware. Would like to put some type of shelving or hooks in between the bunks and the bathroom wall.


Thanks in advance.
Glen

we use the 3M command hooks- works great for the coats, have even traveled with the coats on the hook. best thing is they are moveable.

the command hooks are excellent.
I got an over the door metal coat hook thing at target and put it over the bathroom door. our sink is outside the bathroom and we use it for towels mostly.
Inside the door I put the TP holder - don't want to put wet towels over it.
Put a regular towl bar above the toilet on the wall - used the expanding anchors (cheap, plastic) that came with the towel bar (and TP holder same deal).

Then we got a spring loaded shower pole/shelf like this Tension Bathroom Shower Caddy ? White ? Walmart.com and it works great - stays put in the back corner of the tub/shower.

Thanks,

Didn't even consider the 3M products.

Does anyone know what the spacing is for studs?

+1 for the Command Hooks. And they are making them in different colors now to look "fancy". They have a faux antique brass ones that we put up above the toilet to hang additional towels. As well as in the entrance to hang coats, keys, etc. Amazon.com: 3M Command FC12-ORB Forever Classic Medium Metal Hook, Oil Rubbed Bronze: Home Improvement

I lucked out and found a metal over the door rack that had a rubber like coating. Bought two, and have them on either side of the door. No scratches or problems. Found them at a flea market new in one of those $1 bins!

We use two short shower rods, about $6 from Walmart sitting on top of the shower surround. The pressure ends keep them from sliding. We use hangers for coats- really good in snow and rain, because drips go into the shower pan, and the bathroom fan vent can be used to circulate, and exhaust moist air from drying items. Easy to move. Same short rods, with a comforter, keep a/c or heat up front while driving in extreme temperatures without having to use generator to run a/c or propane for heat by blocking off hallway.

I'm going to try the Command hooks. Also need to hang paper towel rack over the kitchen sink some place.

We put an extra towel bar on the bathroom door. We hung the paper towel holder on the underside of one of our kitchen cabinets. As for the TP holder; my DH made a free-standing wood one from cherry. Problems solved, and no need to hang them on the wall.
