It is often the last thing that we think of when fitting out a new bathroom or shower room, the robe hook. It has been known for some people to drive a nail into the wall, a bit drastic we think, better still but not very nice is a cup hook which is screwed to the back of the bathroom door!
No we can offer a wide choice of over 70 robe hooks all of different styling, including modern, traditional, double, or multiple rob hooks, and there is a complete choice. Many choose a double robe hook and we consider that there is nothing wrong with that, his and hers if you like, but how much nicer is it to have to separate hooks which avoid a robe being accidently knocked to the floor? We also offer a number of multiple hooks on our website; these have four hooks which are neatly and evenly spaced onto a backing plate which is easily fixed to a wall or door, enough to cater for all the family. Of course with all the styling you would expect to see a traditional style of robe hook, one that will fit into the retro Victorian or Edwardian bathroom. The Burlington Double Robe Hook fits beautifully into this category and is perfect for his and hers in a master bathroom suite. Displaying all the styling and elegance of the period the timeless look with enhance any period or even modern bathroom, just one of the many from which you can choose.
Robe hooks buyers guide
You'll probably be surprised by the number of products available in our selection of bathroom robe hooks. When you think about it, after the shower or bath, the item that is probably used the most in a bathroom is the robe hook. So it is important to give this seemingly banal accessory a certain degree of serious thought. Indeed, no tidy and organised bathroom can do without at least one set of robe hooks for people to hang their clothes, robes or towels on while they are in the room, or even leave them there for later.

The robe hook is an instant storage solution that doubles as a real feature in your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, wet room or toilet. It's an ideal accessory combining functionality and aesthetics, so it's the perfect space-saver. Whatever the style you're looking for, you are sure to find the perfect robe hook to match the design of your bathroom in our large selection from well-known bathroom accessory manufacturers with an international reputation: Burlington, Grohe, Imperial, Inda, Keuco and Smedbo.
The importance of using a specifically designed hook
It can be tempting to be less attentive to aesthetics when it comes to putting the final touches on your bathroom decor with functional accessories such as robe hooks. But even if you consider that needing a simple hook doesn't warrant spending a lot of time trying to create or match a particular look, don't make the mistake of using any old hook that's lying around in your shed or drawer. There are no short cuts: it's essential to use hooks specifically designed for bathroom use, otherwise you run the risk of seeing your robe hooks rust or corrode in a short space of time. Any bathroom environment is inevitably prone to humidity, so you will end up being disappointed if you opt for an ordinary hook. The materials used by our selection of manufacturers are all guaranteed anti-corrosion, so you have nothing to worry about.
Think about functionality and aesthetics
To choose the right hook(s) for your room, you need to take into account different criteria concerning both the functionality and the aesthetics. First, the type of hook: do you want a single hook, or a double or triple set of hooks? If you're interested in a double robe hook, should it be horizontal or vertical? You need to think about the number of people who will wish to use the hooks at the same time. And don't forget to take into account the shorter height of children who are going to use the bathroom. It may also be in your interest to consider purchasing several robe hooks to create a stylish hanging area for towels, robes, or even loofahs and body brushes.
You need to think carefully about where you are going to fix your robe hooks. An obvious choice for items of clothing would be on the back of the door, but it's worth considering the distance between the bath or shower and the door before settling for this solution. It might be preferable to position the hooks on a wall or partition closer to the bath or shower to enhance the convenience. We recommend experimenting with cardboard templates to find the perfect combination, as well as the layout of your robe hooks to help you create the unfussy, streamlined look you want.
Metal and finish
Next, ask yourself about the material that will best match your other bathroom fittings. Most robe hooks are either chrome, nickel, brass or stainless steel, all of which resist corrosion. The type of metal also determines the colour: chrome, nickel and stainless steel are silver-coloured, while bronze and brass look rather like gold.
Another factor to consider is the finish. Depending on the manufacturer and the line you will be able to choose between a brushed, polished, satin or high shine finish. If you are unsure how they will fit in with the rest of your bathroom accessories, look at the photographs of the different robe hooks on offer and compare the finish with your other fittings. The choice of finish is of prime importance if you are hoping to create a sleek, sophisticated, contemporary look. At the same time, if the other accessories in your bathroom are not at all coordinated, there will be absolutely no constraint in your choice of finish for your robe hooks.
But don't go too fast! There is another essential factor to take into account before you settle for your final choice: the design. Whether you choose between classic, modern or traditional, our selection of manufacturers offer a wide range of robe hooks with clean lines for fashionable living. You can choose between soft square shapes, solid sleek cylinders, or smooth round robe hooks to create an uncluttered, sophisticated look. Whatever your choice, the curvaceous smooth surfaces of your robe hooks will help create a modern, uncluttered look, giving an attractive, flowing appearance to your bathroom.
If you're interested in purchasing double or triple hooks, take the time to have a good look at the entire selection before making your choice, as there is a wide range of products with very distinctive looks. For the vertically positioned double hooks, you need to decide if you'd like them to be the same size, or if you prefer the top one to be bigger. Likewise, for the horizontally positioned double hooks, do you want them to be at 180° or at an oblique angle? Of course, it is more a question of taste than of practicality.
