Bath Robe Hooks

Photo by Wendell T. Webber

Whether you're looking to give your bath a dose of vintage style—or just keep towels organized and a cozy bathrobe at the ready—these hardworking hooks are both charming and practical. With pegs that extend from wall-mounted escutcheons, today's versions stand up to bathroom humidity better than their early-20th-century counterparts thanks to their polyurethane-coated finishes. They are also cast, rather than stamped from a metal sheet. Here, you'll find 23 stunners in a variety of materials and finishes to match any style bath. Just one tip: While it's generally recommended that hooks be mounted about 5 feet above the floor, keep in mind your own height, the reach of your little ones, and the length of your linens before making final placement decisions.
