Mounting height for towel bars and tp holders


I am wanting to know if there is a standard height to mount towel bars and toilet paper holders. I'm getting ready to install sheetrock and want to make sure I have some blocking installed so I won't have to use any type of anchors later on.

Purely arbitrary.

I got out a couple towels and worked out the appropriate places to do the same during a recent bathroom remodel.

Added blocking for safety bars I added in the tub/shower area as well.

Well Ron, back in my production framing days I remember adding backing for a towel bar, 2x4 54" center and the TP was 2x6 or 8 at 26" center.

That was quite a few brain cells ago though.

Pardon my French, but I've used the method of "titty height" for towel bars, and "ass height" for poo paper holder. These are the biological methods.

Normally 24" for the tp holder and 48"-52" for the towel bars.

Personally--it's not the height of the TP holder that bothers me, it's the location. I despise reaching behind me for TP. Mount it where the "striking paper" is easy to reach, even if on the back of a door. That's just me, David

Toilet paper as high as reasonable - this way = less bending for changing rolls and ergo less rolls left unchanged.
