Why is it that most kitchens don’t have a dedicated drying spot for towels? I resort to draping my kitchen towel over the sink; I’ve seen others hang theirs on the oven handle. But I prefer a proper towel rod—which is why I love this kitchen hack in a rental renovation that Annie wrote about for Remodelista (see A Two-Week, $1,000, 500-Square-Foot Rental Overhaul by a Design Student in Bushwick, Brooklyn).
The renters, both designers, installed the ever-mighty Grundtal Rail from Ikea right in front of the kitchen sink, directly onto the plywood base they built from scratch. They hang their kitchen linens on the rail as well as some oft-used tools.
