The 9 Best Freestanding Toilet Paper Holders

Last Updated on August 22, 2023 by toilethaven

What is a Freestanding Toilet Paper Holder?

A freestanding toilet paper holder is a type of toilet paper holder that does not require any form of mounting but is rather placed on the bathroom floor closer to the toilet. Freestanding toilet paper holders may or may not have a toilet paper storage compartment.

The freestanding toilet paper holders are more ideal for people with a big bathroom. When you have a small bathroom, you want to make use of every inch of space.

For those with a small bathroom, a wall-mounted, tank-mounted, suction, or recessed toilet paper holder makes more sense. This is because these are off the floor, therefore, giving you the much-needed bathroom space.


I love the freestanding toilet paper holders because they are so stylish and modern. Toilet paper rolls on the wall are what we grew up seeing, which makes the freestanding ones a much-welcome idea.

One thing to be careful about while buying freestanding toilet paper is its stability. Since these holders are not mounted on the floor, there is a chance that it will topple once you pull down a roll of toilet paper. In this review, I have made sure that I have taken that into consideration.


Before going on further, I would just like to say that the correct way to hang toilet paper is over the toilet paper holder, but nothing stops you from hanging it under if it works for you.

The Best and Unique Freestanding Toilet Paper Holders

While writing this post, I have made sure that the holders I review herein are the very best in my understanding. I know there might be other good ones out there, which I would be happy to see in the comment section.

In choosing the best freestanding toilet paper holders, I took into consideration a few factors which I consider critical. These include sturdiness, material, height, brand, and cost, among others.

The following are the 9 best freestanding toilet paper holders:

1. Moen Stockton Freestanding Pivoting Toilet Paper Holder

Moen Stockton Brushed Nickel Freestanding Single...
  • WARM AND INVITING: Brushed Nickel finish provides a lightly brushed warm-grey metallic look
  • COORDINATING COLLECTION: Coordinates with other Moen bathroom accessories
  • INNOVATIVE FEATURES: Pivoting post allows for easy roll changes without the need for a traditional roller

Moen is an industry leader in the manufacturing of quality bathroom appliances, and this one is no exception. It is a single-roll pivoting toilet paper holder made with a brushed nickel finish from zinc or brass.

A pivoting post is a really innovative idea that allows you to easily replace a toilet paper roll, unlike the usual spring-loaded post. The toilet paper roll post and the entire holder are nicely finished with fine details that make the whole piece so beautiful.

Another feature I really like about this toilet paper holder is the wide round base. This is important as it gives it the required stability and will, therefore, not topple over while being used.

This piece will handle both regular-sized toilet paper rolls as well as big ones. The one bad thing you can say about it is that it does not offer a storage section for extra toilet paper rolls.

From the floor to the top of the holder, it measures 22 inches, while the base support has a diameter of 6.25 inches. It is, therefore, not very tall but will work just fine. It has the Moen lifetime warranty.

Its cast iron pipe has several joints, which further adds to this holder’s detail and uniqueness. The pipe’s black finish stands out, especially because most bathroom walls and appliances have bright colors and hence a nice contrast.

I love that you can have your phone on the top shelf because, personally, if I’m watching something and I feel the urge to use the bathroom, I head there with my phone. You just simply put your phone on the shelf, do your business, grab toilet paper, and the rest is history. The shelf measures 6.49 inches in width, 3.54 inches in depth, and 1 inch in height.

In case you are wondering how stable this holder is, I can confirm to you that it will not roll easily. It is also made from high-quality steel with beautiful finishes and will, therefore, not rust.

I also love the fact that the manufacturer gives you a 45-day money-back grace period in which, if you don’t like it, you can return it. That’s the confidence they have in their product. It also comes with a one-year warranty.

The overall height of the toilet paper holder is 25 inches. You can use both regular size as well as big sizes of toilet paper with it.

8. Kingston Claremont Freestanding Toilet Paper Holder

This is a high-quality freestanding toilet paper which is always the case with anything associated with the Kingston brand. It is available in brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, and polished chrome and is made from solid brass and stainless steel.

This design is simple but practical. It holds a single toilet paper roll at a time, and if you are asking how to change a roll, then it’s as simple as ABC. You just push the roll inside from the open end. In case you would like to add extra rolls to the storage section, the horizontal bra flips upwards so that you just push them down.

The rectangular weighted base makes this holder very sturdy and will, therefore, not topple while pulling down a roll. I like that the base is not too thick, which would otherwise make the holder look old-fashioned.

This piece is 22 inches high, while the base measures 8 inches wide and 5.3 inches deep. This Kingston free-standing toilet paper holder is a bit pricey, but I guarantee you it is well worth it.

  • TOILET PAPER AND MAGAZINE STAND: Free-standing wired toilet paper dispenser and basket to provide additional storage space. Store your magazines, newspapers, books, and other bathroom reading material...
  • DURABLE: Made of rust-resistant steel with a bronze finish for years of quality use
  • FREE STANDING: Free-standing design is perfect for small spaces and moves easily to the desired location

This is an innovative double-post freestanding toilet paper holder with a magazine or newspaper rack. It is beautifully made of rust-resistance steel with a bronze finish.

I love the fact that this toilet paper holder can dispense 2 toilet paper rolls at the same time. Although it racks a roll storage compartment, at least you are sure that the 2 rolls will not be depleted at the same time, and you will therefore replace whichever runs out first.

If you have a smaller bathroom that this holder would not be ideal for, there is a toilet tank-mounted option which you can also use as a reserve rolls storage for the main one. Apart from that, you can also buy a stand-alone roll reserve unit that can easily fit at the side of the toilet.

It holds both regular-sized rolls as well as the big ones. To clean this product, just wipe it with a dump cloth, and that’s it. Its finish is very well done and hence durable.

It is 12 inches wide, 4.75 inches deep, and 23.75 inches high. This is a great product for big and small bathrooms.



Freestanding Toilet paper holders are becoming more popular as they are stylish, portable, and do not need to be mounted. They are also useful in other ways like toilet paper storage as well as mobile, newspaper, and magazine shelves.

In case you have bought a nice toilet paper holder that you would also like other readers to know about, I would be happy if you could tell us more about it in the comments section. Thank you!
