Loved this towel bar. It is very well made and for me any item that gives you versatility is a plus. The shelf portion is made so that you can hang items from the bars or use it as a shelf. I hate cluttered counter tops and I am always searching for items that help me organize better. This towel bar fit the bill.
I did make one little mistake but it was on me, I did not take into consideration the depth of the shelf when I picked it out and had to relocate it from where I originally wanted to put it. ( The medicine cabinet door wouldn't open where I originally wanted to put it.) So be sure to account for the shelf depth. The box showed two metal hooks so I thought those would be included but they weren't in the box. Also the two little tiny set screws that come with it to secure the bar to the mounted hooks were rolling around loose in the box and I was glad I saw them.
I would definitely recommend this shelf if you are looking for a quality made versatile towel bar. The instructions for mounting it were very good and they even include a printed template to help you mark your drill holes, which made the whole process very easy. I am not the most mechanically inclined and always worry something will be beyond my skills. I had no problem following the simple instructions.
