This $7 Amazon Paper Towel Holder Is a Stylish Small-Space Kitchen Savior
I’m all about affordable apartment upgrades that make my routines more enjoyable and look great. So I’m surprised it took me so long to tackle the paper towel situation by my kitchen sink. I’ve always used traditional standing holders for my rolls. They’ve done the job just fine, but given that I’ve always had small kitchens, I’m surprised I didn’t think to go with a mountable option sooner. I have such limited counter space as is, and the area immediately surrounding my sink felt crowded, between the paper towels and the rest of my washing essentials (sponge holder, hand soap, and dish soap).
While browsing Amazon several weeks ago, this $7 under-cabinet paper towel holder caught my eye, and I immediately added it to my cart. The price couldn’t be better, the gold finish looks chic, and hundreds of customers give it great reviews. But best of all, it’s a renter-friendly buy. That’s right; this holder can be applied to the bottom of your cabinet with traditional screws or an adhesive strip. In fact, it comes with materials for both options, which means you don’t need to go out to buy anything extra.
I truly can’t believe I didn’t incorporate one of these space-saving holders in the kitchen sooner. I love having a bit more counter space available, while still being able to access my paper towels so easily. Because they’re now hanging above the sink, rolls are less likely to get splashed with water and won’t accidentally get knocked over and fall into the sink.
If you’re not one for gold tones in the kitchen, this paper towel holder is also available in both a matte black and silver finish. As far as the metal goes, it’s lightweight but still feels like decent quality — particularly for the price.
Not looking to hang one of these directly under a cabinet? Reviewers have used the adhesive to attach the holder to subway tile backsplashes, pegboards, and more. Given that it comes in at the same price as a fancy latte, this kitchen buy is more than worth the money.
