"Q: Can you tell me what the usual placement on the wall is for a towel ring??

In other words how high and how close to the counter do you put it?

A: This can vary a lot. I would say around 18"" from the top of the backsplash. Enough that the towel will hang and leave 2-4"" from the backsplash to the bottom of the towel. I think the most important thing is that it is postioned where it looks best and is functional.? "
