How to install a towel ring for your bathroom. Working on small DIY projects like this gives you a great sense of accomplishment and prepare you to tackle larger projects around your home. So today, let’s hang a towel ring for our handtowels! 

How to install a towel ring in bathroom

The hand towels are always hung with the bath towels or just slung on the sink countertop. Last night while I was shopping for cleaning supplies and I snagged a ring-shaped hand towel holder.

This is a long-overdue project for our guest bath and definitely something I needed to get done before people show up this weekend.

First thing’s first though. We’re going to clean the bathroom and the rest of the house to get it ready for guests.

We’re using a few products to make a mad-dash through the house cleaning every surface in sight. Scrubbing Bubbles Fantastik, Windex Original Glass Cleaner and Pledge Orange Clean Furniture Spray.

Bang. Done! Now let’s install that towel ring!

Installing Bathroom Towel Ring

Now that the entire house is sparkling clean, we’re ready to install that pesky towel ring. And you thought I was going to put it off for another year, didn’t you?

First thing is first, take it out of the package and read the instructions.

Most towel rings are very simple to install and come with everything you need. There are towel rings to match any decor. It’s best to match your towel ring up with the color of your faucets or other towel bars in your bathroom.

If they’re chrome, get a chrome towel ring, brushed nickel…well you get the idea!

Install a Towel Ring in Bathroom

Mark Mounting Bracket Holes

Begin by lining the ring up on a wall stud, if possible. If there is no stud where you wish to put your towel ring, you will need to use the included drywall anchors.

Decide how high you wish to have your towel ring. If you have a bath towel bar, that height is usually a good place to begin. Hold the mounting bracket against the wall and mark the two holes where the screws will go.

Install Mounting Bracket

Use two screws to mount the bracket to the wall studs that are behind the drywall. If there is no wall stud behind your drywall, you will use the wall anchors included in your towel ring set. Follow the instructions to install your drywall anchors.

Drill the pilot holes and insert the anchors as shown in your product instructions.

Attach the mounting bracket with the included screws.

Install Towel Ring

Mount the towel ring to the bracket by ‘hooking’ it over the top and seating it onto the mounting bracket.

Secure Towel Ring

If yours is not a ‘spring-loaded’ type, which secures itself to the wall without a set screw, you’ll be done at this point.

If yours has a small little set screw that goes underneath the towel holder, now is the time to install and tighten that screw down.

My towel ring set came with an Allen wrench for this part.

Easy peasy!

After you’re done wiping down the bathroom, you’ll have this project done in literally 10 minutes…don’t wait 3 years like I did!
