Several of our hardware accessories are available as wall-mounted and countertop (or vanity top) styles.
We offer this choice for several reasons. For example, wall-mounted accessories can be placed out of reach from small children. However, countertop, or vanity top accessories, can be moved around as needed.
Today, we discuss the benefits of wall-mounted accessories.
Wall-Mounted Accessories Are Safer and More Stable
As we noted, this is a good thing in homes and other places where young children are around.
Moreover, we use thick safety glass to minimize any contact between lit candles and incense sticks and flammable materials, including clothing. The National Fire Protection Association recommends keeping lit candles 12 inches from anything that can burn.

While incense fires are relatively rare, they do happen. A tabletop incense holder can topple over. A length of burning tip can fall on a carpet. We've found more than one news story about fires caused by burning incense.
Wall-Mounted Accessories Don't Take Up Countertop or Vanity Top Space
For accessories that don't involve smoke or flame, the decision often comes down to personal presences and the available space.
Many of our customers choose wall-mounted options because they have limited countertop or vanity top space. This is especially notable in bathrooms and smaller kitchens.
For that reason, we offer several wall-mounted options for our paper towel holders and mug organizers:
Carolina Collection, shown in Polished Nickel Finish
Prestige Que New collection, Antique Bronze Finish
Several collections feature paper towel holders with thick safety glass shelves over them. Here's one from our Dottingham collection, one of our largest.
Finish: Polished Chrome
Our Pipeline and Camo collections feature accessories made from actual pipe. Wall-mounted mug holders are only available in these collections and hold four to six mugs. Here's a four-mug wall-mounted mug holder from Pipeline:
Finish: Matte Gray, one of eight finishes offered in the Pipeline collection.
Pacific Beach Collection, Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish
Continental Collection, Antique Copper Finish
Use the Space Under the Cabinets, Too!
Finish: Polished Brass
Mug holders from our Pipeline and Camo collections offer under-the-counter options. Here's an example from our Camo collection - in action!
We'll discuss the benefits of counter top or vanity top accessories in a post coming soon.
