Ceiling mounted towel rail

Cultivating a Following

Ceiling mounted towel rail

Brushed gold ceiling mounted towel rail. 

I love the look.


I used:

2x 600mm

2x 900mm

2x 1.2m

2x 300mm which I cut in half using a mitre saw but you could use a hand saw.


Using a rubber mallet, I placed the Metal maté connectors in place. 

Very lightly sanded the towel rail & applied 3 coats of White Knight Gold Satin spray paint. 

The towel rail needs to a screwed into timber & as this was a total renovation, I pre planned this.


I used snap on screw caps to hide the screws & hand painted them with the gold satin spray paint.

Re: Ceiling Mounted Towel Rail

Hello @DJC 


What a fantastic looking towel rail, I must admit this is the first time I've seen a ceiling mounted towel rail. Its gold brushed finish makes it look like a piece of art instead of a towel rail.


Thank you for sharing this excellent project.

Good Morning @DJC 

I have to agree with @EricL thats a nice looking rail and havnt seen one hanging before. I like that you have screwed it into the timber :smile:

It really gives the room height and the gold adds to a classy/stylish look. 


Nice idea and work.
