exposed copper bath pipes = towel warmer + sculpture

We’ve long been fans of copper plumbing pipes being configured on the OUTSIDE of bathroom walls to make interesting sculptural fixtures (not to mention, using copper pipe in general for pot racks, books shelves, closet fittings). And even though we’re not crazy about the somewhat drear gray tiles in this bathroom, we LOVE the creative and suprisingly practical use of copper pipe. The squared-off hot water pipe acts as a built-in towel rack and warmer (there is NOTHING like a warm towel when you step out of the tub or shower).

    Haha, I love the idea behind that copper bath pipe! Why buy an expensive towel warmer, when you can modify a little on the warm copper pipes. I’ve included this in my blogpost about towelwarmers :-) http://primabolig.dk/indendors/badevaerelse/el-handklaedetorrer/

    Hope you’ll enjoy the reading!
