The search function's not coming up with any thing specific about paper towel holders, placement. I'm surprised, because there's about where to put cloth kitchen towels.
Am I missing something?
You'll have better luck if you do a google search "paper towel holder gardenweb kitchen forum". I hope that helps.
my kitchen is large, and i have multiple prep areas. i opted for two portable paper towel holders. they go where i do. even in smaller spaces, i don't much see the point of assigning permanent space to such a thing.
I like my brushed stainless Martha Stewart portable paper towel holder that I just got a few weeks ago. After going without one for so many years, I really appreciate having somewhere to put my PT, and I think it looks inconspicuous on the counter. I decided against putting a holder inside a cabinet because I sometimes have wet hands when I reach for one.
Yup, portable is the way to go!
After 20+ years of a fixed PT holder in our kitchen, I went with portable this time. It's only been in action for a couple of weeks, but so far it makes a lot of sense - move it here when using the stove; move it there when using the mixer.
I got this one from Crate & Barrel, white marble with gray veining, $20.
I am going to go with portable this time too. And probably 2 of them. I just cant decide which one to buy. The xoxo gets good reviews but I am not sure i like the looks of it. That marble one looks cute but it wouldnt really match my counters.
