Hang those shared towels in your bathroom using those hooks instead of rods. This trick saves lots of space and adds posh to your bathroom walls. You may also add another curtain rod inside your shower area (opposite to your shower curtain rod) to hang other fancy baskets and organizers to keep your essentials in place. Chic hangers can also do the job.
