DIY towel ring installation under an angled cabinet
One way to install a towel ring under an angled cabinet is to use two 90-degree bends. This will place the towel bar near the bottom of the cabinet and out of arm’s reach. It works well for both new construction and renovations. Pull-bar Towel Rings by Inter-design come in many different sizes.
Ideas on where to place it:
-you could put the new towel bar on the sidewall of an angled cabinet, which will let you use more space on top of the cabinet (if there is no window or door above).
The installation would be pretty straightforward if the cabinet had a back panel. You can either remove the door from its hinges or cut a hole in the back of the cabinet to fit the bar through it. The bar will stick out past the cabinet’s front face by a few inches so you’ll have to find a spot for it. Which doesn’t interfere with any other cabinets or furniture nearby.
-you could place this pull-out towel ring under a window. It will let you easily grab the towel near the window without stepping too far back from it and you won’t have to take your eyes off the view outside. If you want, you can put some sort of simple design on the front end where people passing by can see it . Now you know how to hang a hand towel on a towel ring.
if you have a small bathroom, this pull-down bar will help free up some space for other items on the counter. It works well if you don’t have a lot of things on the counter already and it’s good to be able to grab a towel without having to bring everything else with it.
