I have been looking at organizing blogs and noticed a lot of people roll their bath towels. So it got me wondering:
Where do you store your bath towels? In the bathroom vanity? In the linen closet? In your bedroom closet?
How do you store them? Folded, rolled, in a heap in a basket?
I have mine folded and stored in the bathroom vanity cabinet. I wish I had a linen closet right in the bathroom (did at another house and it was great). But our current linen closet is at the front of the house and we normally shower in the master bathroom which is in the back of the house.
I'm just PEAchy - thanks for askin'

Well...before there was a vanity in my guest bath, they were rolled and in a basket on the floor beside the tub. No where else to put them LOL.
Now they're in the vanity since we got rid of the ugly ass vintage wall mount sink.
They are folded and in the joke of a linen closet in the master bathroom.

I fold my bath towels in fourths; the hand towels are folded in thirds. Both go in the linen closet. My washcloths, however, go in a cabinet in the master bathroom.
Rolling the towels does look cooler, though, I think. . . . just not motivated to do it.

The towels we use in the ensuite bathroom are stored in a large wooden trunk at the end of our bed, folded and in colour piles.
The towels for the main bathroom are stored in the large linen cupboard that is next to the bathroom, folded and in colour piles.

The washclothes are rolled up in a wire asket that sits on top an the hand towels are folded and are in the cabinet with the other towels. It only holds 6 towels though as they are fluffy so there are always two other bath towels on teh bar behind the door. JCPenney had a cabinet that was larger that I liked but more expensive and since we will only be here a few years, I went for the cheaper one. I really like this one. Just wish it was a little bigger.
We have two of these in our downstairs bathroom. The bottom two drawers on each are used for the bigger towels. The middle drawer on each has either wash clothes or hand towels in it and the top two drawers on each have our things in it. (razors, deodorant, etc..)

I have two linen closets in my 2nd floor hallway. The larger one is for bed linens, blankets, comforters, extra pillows, stored air mattresses and the like, and the smaller one is where I keep my towels. I fold them in thirds width-wise and then in quarters lengthwise. Of course, because I have two teens and a tween (all girls) who for some reason use 3 towels per shower and would never dream of reusing a towel, at any given time most of my towels are in the laundry room - either in the hamper, the washer, the dryer or the laundry basket, depending on their stage in the laundry process.
I sense impending mayhem.

I have mine folded and stored in the bathroom vanity cabinet.
Out of season pool/beach towels are in the main bathroom closet. I bring them down and keep them in a large basket in the back entrance in the summer when we're using the pool.

Towels are stored in the towel closet in the bathroom. We have a closet in the bathroom for towels and one in the hallway for sheets and blankets.
Towels (the BIG bath sheets) are folded in thirds length wise then in thirds width wise with all seams matching and folded the same way and facing the same way in the cupboard. Yes, I have OCD.
Then there is a laundry basket in the bathroom for towels only. We use them once and then wash them.

Folded in the linen closet in our bathroom. I love having a linen closet in our bathroom as well as out in the hallway.
Master bed sheets are in there as well as our toiletry items.

Bath towels are kept rolled and in the linen closet in the hallway close to both bathrooms. We started rolling towels a few years ago. Keeps the closet neater and more towels seem to fit.

|Posted: 3/6/2011 1:44:32 AM|I have a linen closet in my MB now.
When we lived in an apt we had NO linen closet and only a small vanity (half of which was drawers). I bought and inexpensive narrow vertical open shelf (in the same style as the white cabinet Jonell posted, I had the cabinet too) I rolled the towels and put them in that (they stuck out a bit but it looked nice once they were all in there).
I also put a shelf in the back of the shower, up high. it sat on the edge of the shower wall surround and the brackets were the type that attached at the top of the shelf instead of the bottom. the lip of the tub surround was quite thick too and that mostly held it in place. I think if you got a package of the large 3M command adhesive strips and stuck it up there it would be enough. I didn't have those then! You wouldn't need any brackets either and the shelf can be purchased (without brackets) at most home improvements stores in the wood/shelving dept.

Rolled in the Linen Closet. It's the best way they fit.

Some of them are folded in the linen closet. In the master bath we placed a small baker's rack against one of the walls and store the rest of the towels on there.

Towels are in the vanity and washcloths/handtowels are in vanity drawers, folded in thirds. (Well, depends on who folded. DH and I fold our towels differently. Choose your battles, right?) Our beach towels are kept on the top shelf in our hallway linen closet in the winter, then moved down to a middle shelf for the summer months. We don't use the beach towels every day, so I generally wash them after we use them and put them away in the closet.

Folded up in the bathroom closet. We are so very fortunate to actually have a really big closet (w/ a bi-fold door) in our bathroom, right next to the shower! Best bathroom set-up we've ever had!

They're on top of a shelf in our bedroom, folded and stacked in an open vintage suitcase. We don't have closets ANYWHERE in the house (not a single one); otherwise, I'd have them in a linen closet. We're going to have to find a new storage solution for the bathroom soon since we have a baby on the way and a lot of toiletries and other things a picky baby would want to play with are in open view/easy reach. So maybe if I get the cupboard I want for in there, there will be a space for towels in the bathroom.
