Paper towel holder

Posted by on 18 Dec 2010 | Tagged as: Bathroom, Design, product eval

I have mixed feelings about paper towels laid out like this.  They don’t suffer from the over packed dispenser problem.  Nor do they require special equipment for restocking (e.g. specially rolled paper, prepackaged packs of paper towels).  On the other hand, they do tend to get messed up rather easily, and water can get on multiple paper towels, making more of a mess.
But, on the whole, they’re less of a headache for the customer, which is a good thing.

Terrible paper towel dispenser location.

Do I really need to go into why this is a bad design?
  • Awkward positioning.
  • Pool of Water amassing behind the faucet, resulting in…
  • Wet Paper Towels.
  • No Clearance for pulling down, or out, resulting in…
  • Wet Paper Towels.
  • Typical issues with paper towel dispensers being packed too tightly, resulting in…
  • Ripped Paper Towel Shreds.
Need I say more?
