Toilet Roll Storage Holder

If you have a guest bathroom, it may have been left to fate, and not looking the best with toilet paper being left on the physical top of the toilet itself, or in a basket on the floor. Why not give a little experience to your guests? After all, we all talk about toilets whether we admit it or not! Everyone must be at ease in an environment that is a little taboo. Get crafty with this little number. Accessorize it with a plant, air freshener, towel perhaps, soft and hand cream.

Your bathroom remodel includes many details, and where to mount the toilet paper holder is one of them. Do you put it just anywhere? The National Kitchen and Bath Association studies bathroom ergonomics and flow and provides standard measurements that work best not only for the placement of your toilet, sink and bath, but for your toilet paper holder as well.

Height Placement

According to the NKBA, a wall-mounted toilet paper holder works best if installed 26 inches above the floor, on center. “On center” means that the center of the holder, as opposed to the bottom or top of it, is 26 inches above the floor. This installation height works well with standard as well as comfort height, or handicapped, toilets.

Distance From Toilet

The other important measurement is that it should be placed eight to 12 inches, on center, from the toilet to the facing wall. Measure from the very front of the toilet bowl. To optimize this measurement, consider the average height of household members and place it eight to 10 inches from the front of the bowl for shorter users and households with kids; place it 10 to 12 inches in front of the bowl for households consisting of taller members.
