Bar vs. Bar

Travel down a bath accessories aisle and you'll find a dozen towel bars, many similar in style yet wildy different in price. Even if you eliminate the top-of-the-line models—and the very bottom ones—you'll still be left wondering why one midpriced bar costs about $65 and another about $31. Here, a look at two classic hotel-style models proves that while both can give a bath the pop of polished chrome (or a look-alike), more goes into them than just good looks.
