I would recommend this product because it is a very nice addition to my kitchen, it holds a decorative towel on the rack and has a glass shelf above where I added artificial swag that goes with my kitchen. It was a little difficult putting in screws because they were so close to the wall.

Cute fancy bathroom shelve
A few weeks after putting in my order for my homes and Gardens Safford 18 Glass Shelf with Towel Bar in Satin Nickel I recieved it and was super excited . I never actually thought it would look as fancy as it does. This glass shelf is something so simple yet makes your bathroom look very fancy. It comes with an 18 inch. Very thick glass. Which not only holds hand towels but It can also hold small cute decorations or small cute desert plants. This is a very heavy duty shelf. Very well and sturdy built. Which is a great thing don't have to worried about breaking down on you. I believe it's at a great price for a very well built & fancy shell . My son loves listening to music why he showers. With this cuye shelf now we have where to place he's boombox. I really recommend this shelf to make your bathroom extra fancy at a very affordable price.
Multifunctional and I'm using in my craft room
This is actually my second Better Homes and Garden glass shelf with towel holder. I purchased the original for my guest bathroom, that has very little storage space. I loved the thick glass shelf, and it was perfect dimensions for extra towels, clothes, and toiletries. The nickel towel rack is thick, strong, and I don't have to worry the weight of the towels. Also I appreciate the nickel coating because I did have an inferior brass towel rack that actually started to rust at one point. The design is stylish and it's silver color, so it will match most decors.
Now this second holder has gone in my craft room. It looks fabulous, and it's functional enough to hold my paints, and papers. All hardware for hanging is include, as well as a template for measuring. The shelf comes assembled, and installing was a breeze.
Heavy and Pretty
When I received the box first off, I was surprised at the weight. This shelf is much heavier than others I have purchased. Come to find out, it is because the shelf itself is nice and thick but it makes the entire thing top-heavy. I was worried about the weight because most shelves have it where you slip the glass piece under a lip and it just kind of sits there. This shelf is much more secure with a post/screw piece that goes through the actual glass. Similar to how the shower door handle is secured through the glass. They also placed the wall posts higher up so it kind of balances it better.
I am still a little worried about the secureness of the shelf under the weight of the glass because it does get secured to the wall in the typical fashion- with those tiny little hidden screws you have to awkwardly tighten. Though it makes it look nice, in my experience they like to wiggle loose over time especially with continued use like a towel being used and replaced. So, for me, this will more than likely be more decorative than a daily usage feature. I definitely wouldn't want this shelf falling and hitting any toes. In fact, the directions state something to the effect of placing the shelf in a location where it will not be pulled on.
Overall, this is a beautiful and high-quality shelf with a nicely secured heavy piece of glass and brushed chrome finish. I am a little concerned about the wall screws but not extraordinarily. I would recommend this to others especially if you are using it for display or to put something up that isn't used constantly where the shelf would be bumped or tugged at over and over. If you use it for the latter, just be sure to check on the tiny screws periodically to make sure they are still tight.
Two In One
For me the best part of this item is the shelf. You might as well put something useful on the shelf or decorative on it while having your towels hanging there, either drying or if your keeping hand towels for company.
This long lasting Satin finish helps prevent corrosion or discoloration. But you should follow the directions on how to clean it. Do not use chemicals or hard scrubbing on the metal . The glass is temped and its thick enough so it wont brake to easily it comes with everything you need to hang it except for the tools. i.e. screw driver, tape measure, pencil etc..
I recommend this even for the kitchen . Why not!
I give this a 3 out of 5 for assembly because I never did it before. Be aware of your measuring. for me that was tricky.
Better Homes & Gardens Safford Glass Shelf looks very attractive. It consists of a heavily weighted towel bar and a thick glass shelf. I was surprised at the weight of the unit. The package includes the always welcomed paper 'Template' (without one, I usually end up with something crooked or holes drilled too close or too far apart). It took me approximately 15 minutes to get the shelf mounted with the aid of the template. Then came the use of the thin & tiny Allen wrench included to screw in and tighten the bar to the wall mount. That took another 5 minutes.
The fact that the bar mounts onto screwed-in plates troubles me a little. Yes, it is an aesthetic thing, but as a senior, I would be far more comfortable with long screws put through the bar handles themselves. It is human nature that a bar coming out from a wall may be used to brace oneself if there a sudden loss of balance and you can't do this with this type of mounting. It clearly states in the directions that this product is not intended to be used as a grab bar. But that said, it is a beautiful addition to my bathroom. Very well made and with no screws showing.
I really liked this beautiful shelf! It makes a great addition to my bathroom. Was very easy to install as well. I have extra space now, plus it has the towel bar on it. Very nice! I'd definitely recommend this product!
I am a little on the fence about this whole rack. On one hand it looks great, the underside bar has almost an industrial look through it as shown in the picture, and the glass is a good sturdy fix piece of tempered glass and I know this and I will get to that part later, there was a downside though however putting this on the wall I'm actually getting it to stay was a bit of a headache, in fact I had to take it down a few times before I actually got it to fit, which was extremely frustrating for me. Now here comes the great part, one of the times I was trying to get it to stay on the wall it It actually ended up falling onto the floor, and as you can see in the picture that nice big piece of tempered glass is still in one piece not a chip not a crack nothing, that is a good quality piece of glass and I'm very impressed by that because it fell a good four or 5 feet to the tile floor. If installation was easier it would've got five stars.
This glass shelf works good. It allows you to put your bathroom towel up as well as providing a shelf for any kind of storage or decor. This shelf has all the mounting hardware included so it makes installation a breeze. The satin nickel finish on this shelf provides long lasting protection from Rust, tarnish, corrosion, and discoloration. This shelf looks very good in my bathroom, very stylish, and goes with any bathroom. I like how I'm able to put my towel up especially to dry after a shower plus a shelf for my trinkets. This shelf is a must have for your bathroom.
Shelf is really nice, installing however is a pain
The Better Homes and Gardens Safford 18 Glass Shelf with Towel Bar in Satin Nickel is a really nice shelf, however installing it was quite a pain. I ended up adding some reinforcement underneath and we won't put anything super-heavy on top. The shelf is still recommendable, because half of the problem with installment is due to the drywall.
