In this blog post we will go over 8 basic steps on how to mount a ceramic towel rack in drywall. The ceramic towel rack that you have been eyeing for your bathroom is finally here.
You can’t wait to get it up on the wall and start using it, but where will you put it? Many people forget to think about this before they purchase a new fixture, and end up buying a second one when they realize there is no place in the house to mount their new acquisition. Fear not!
8 Steps On How to Mount a Ceramic Towel Rack in Drywall
Step 1: Determine the placement of your towel rack.
The first thing you need to do is determine the placement of your towel rack. You’ll want to find a spot that’s both accessible and convenient. Most people choose a spot that’s close to the shower, but not too close.
Step 2: Outline your towel rack on the wall using a pencil.
Now you’ll need to use an electronic stud finder and make sure there are no electrical wires or pipes in the area where you plan to hang it from. Once this is done, use a level as well as a pencil and outline where you want your towel rack installed by tracing around it with your sharpened tool of choice.
You can also choose paint instead if preferred – just be careful not to get any on the surfaces of either tile or drywall when going over them with your selected solution!
Step 3: Drill pilot holes into place for mounting screws.
Once outlined, go ahead and drill pilot holes into the wall at each corner of your towel rack. This will make it easier to screw the brackets in place securely. In drilling these holes, make sure you’re using a drill bit that’s the same size or slightly smaller than your mounting screws.
Step 4: Mount the towel rack brackets to the wall.
Now it’s time to mount the towel rack brackets onto the wall! After drilling pilot holes, insert screws into each one and use a screwdriver to fasten them securely in place.
Step 5: Hang your ceramic towel rack from the mounted brackets.
Once both brackets are attached and screwed in tightly, gently lift up your new ceramic towel rack and hang it from the newly installed hooks on each side. If needed, give it a light tap until it feels secure before moving on.
Step 6: Add finishing touches as desired (optional).
Once your towel rack is hanging in place, you may want to add finishing touches such as caulking around the edges or painting over the outline you traced on the wall.
This is totally optional but can help to give your new addition a more polished look. Moreover, if you do caulking, make sure it’s completely dry before adding any decorations or towels!
Step 7: Stand back and admire your handiwork.
After all of that hard work, take a step back and admire your new ceramic towel rack in all its glory. If everything looks good to go, go ahead and start unpacking those fluffy bath towels!
Step 8: Enjoy using your shiny new towel rack for years to come!
Just like with anything else in life, proper care and maintenance will ensure that your ceramic towel rack lasts for years (or even decades) to come. Wipe down weekly with a damp cloth and avoid exposing it to excessive moisture – et voila, you’re good as gold!
Mounting a ceramic towel rack in drywall is a relatively easy DIY project with great results. Now you can enjoy looking at and using your new fixture without worrying about having to pay an exorbitant amount of money for installation!
