10 Easy Pieces: Countertop Paper Towel Holders

Issue 10 · Kitchen Composition · March 12, 2014

Here at Remodelista, we've put a lot of energy into sleuthing the perfect toilet paper holders, toilet brushes and receptaclesdoormats, brooms and dustpans, and dish drainers. But somehow, until now, we've overlooked the countertop paper towel holder (perhaps because the more conscientious among us have stopped using paper towels altogether). Nonetheless if, like me, you aren't blessed with a built-in paper towel niche in the kitchen, you likely have a roll standing naked on the countertop for use at least now and then. Here are our 10 favorite countertop paper towel holders to help wrangle the roll.
