While on-top-of-the-counter paper towel holders may look cool, sometimes they take up a little too much space. A simple solution to this issue would be to install a wall mounted or under the cabinet paper towel holder that is within easy reach. And if you are worried about the sturdiness of your paper towel holder, consider buying a metal holder rather than the cheaper plastic ones.
