Towel Bar Height Whatever height is most comfortable for you considering your height. If you are remodeling a home to sell, I would place it at around 4 feet. Just make s…ure that a large bath towel will not drag on the floor.Standard adult towel bar height is indeed 48". For kids, 36" is considered standard. However, you should take into account placement of switches, plugs and HVAC vents. Of course, these heights can vary to taste, or if you want to "line up" with something else in the room. And, if you're renovating, don't forget to put blocking in the walls for a solid mount through the drywall or tile.
Wherever its comfortable for you. You don't want to be bending or reaching up for it. It should be located at a height that is comfortable and ergonomic for you. Standard heig…hts are ridiculous nonsense. Why would anyone build something to conform to someone else's physical dimensions? You want your house to fit YOU not the potential buyer fifteen or twentyfive years from now. Imagine working at a countertop that is either too tall or way too short for your physical stature?.......talk about back problems. Same thing with furniture heights, chairs, tables, sinks, ect. Fit them to your height and forget about the rest of the world.
