Add Some Style To Your Home
If you want a great looking kitchen or bathroom you will want to make the materials used blend and seem like they belong together. A great example of this is towel bars. Most kitchens and bathroom have tiled floors and stone counters and still use wooden or metal, or even plastic towel bars. If you have ceramic tile on your floor and/or stone counter tops you should be looking for ceramic towel bars. There are a number of styles of ceramic towel bars so you will not have any problem matching colors and styles and this will bring a much more harmonious look to the room.
Ceramic is used in kitchens and bathrooms because it is hard to stain, very durable and resists scratches. When used in tile or towel bars ceramic is treated with a special glaze to keep it totally protected from dampness. Ceramic is already a non absorbing material so this makes it perfect for this use.
The only problem with ceramic is that it will fade with time if you do not keep it very clean. In high traffic areas this is especially important if you want to keep your tiles or towel bars looking fresh and new. It does not take much to clean them however. Dish soap and clean hot water will do the trick although some people like to use acidic substances, like lime or lemon juice, this is not really necessary. The cleaning does have to be done often however to get the best results.
Take the time to learn about the different materials used in the making of towel bars and racks. Each has its pros and cons and your final choice will depend on several things. The important thing to remember however is that kitchens and bathrooms are very wet places and choosing a material that does not have a problem with water is the best and safest bet.
