Hi Alicia! The shutter-like wall you see above is actually a un-operable louvered wall. We chose this design to create a semi-open feel to the outside while maintaining privacy for the outdoor shower. The towel hangs by a simple hook on the center stile of the wall. Hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Located just off a side entrance, this laundry nook is practical for dropping wet swimsuits and beach towels. Placing the washer and dryer near an exterior door keeps dirt and grime from being tracked through the rest of the home. A countertop and open shelving above the appliances add workspace and storage.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Sweet Georgia Summer Beach Home
The original cinderblock structure consisted of tiny bedrooms and no open spaces. The Snayds wanted to give the home a more modern feel but also bring in elements that would highlight its history and make it timeless. Clapboard siding and a light color palette gave the new home a fresh look.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Coastal Garden Style
Even better, a washer and dryer close to where you enter the house can quickly corral damp clothes. Adding a small changing area would make this spot even more efficient for transitioning from beach to interior.
Set up a washing station near the back door. Stop sand and dirt from being tracked indoors by staging a foot rinse near the door. Of course, in an ideal world we would all have outdoor showers (and live steps from the beach) but a stool placed beside a spigot, or even a watering can and a wooden doormat can do the trick.
Laura Gaskill added this to What's Your Summer Home Style?
4. Family-friendly beach house. This Tybee Island beach house near Savannah, Georgia, is full of fresh color and laid-back beachy style. From easy-care floors and fabrics to the conveniently located shower and laundry, everything in this home is designed to handle daily traffic with ease.
