The 10 Best Recessed Toilet Paper Holders

Last Updated on August 24, 2023 by toilethaven

Recessed toilet paper holders are a type of toilet paper holder that is installed on the wall rather than on the wall. A hole is made in the bathroom wall where they are then screwed in studs or glued in.

They look sleek and stylish. Unlike wall-mounted toilet paper holders, recessed toilet paper holders give your bathroom a seamless design, and they also go well with similar makes of other bathroom accessories like towel bars and hand towel rings.

A recessed toilet paper holder is usually 1.5 to 4 inches deep. Recessed toilet paper holders are usually spring-loaded so that you can easily replace a toilet paper roll.

There are many toilet paper holders in the market today, especially recessed toilet paper holders. Picking a good one might not be easy. The purpose of this post is to help you wade through the chaff and get what you want easily.


I have spent hours reviewing different recessed toilet paper holders and also reading other customers’ reviews t on the same to help me come up with this ultimate post.

The holders reviewed here are not necessarily the cheapest, but I can guarantee you that they are quality. Normally, when buying such a long-term accessory as a toilet paper holder, it’s always advisable not to be under budget.

The Best-Recessed Toilet Paper Holders Are:

1. Ginger 4528/PN Columnar Recessed Toilet Paper Holder

  • Recessed design keeps rolls tucked away
  • Keep your bathroom organized while achieving your design vision
  • Solid brass construction delivers the utmost in beauty, durability, and long-lasting performance

This is probably the best toilet paper holder I have ever had, whether recessed or otherwise. It is made of solid brass with beautiful finishes, and you can therefore be sure that it will never chip. The finishes available are polished chrome, polished nickel, and satin nickel.

This toilet paper holder comes from Ginger’s Columnar collection, which also includes a double pivoting towel holder, toiletry shelf with hand towel bar, arched robe hook, towel ring, and bath grab bar. These items are all made from the same material as the toilet holder.

The only downside to this holder is that it is quite pricey. It may, therefore, not be preferred by the vast majority of people.

All the necessary mounting hardware is provided. The toilet holder has a Ginger lifetime warranty.

This is a well-made and inexpensive recessed toilet paper holder. It is constructed from zinc and aluminum with a plastic bar. The finishes available are polished chrome, satin nickel, and oil-rubbed bronze.

If you would like to match this item with other bathroom items, you can choose to go with the towel bar, robe hook, and towel ring from Design House. The towel bar is available in 18, 24, and 30 inches.

It comes with a one-year warranty.

3. Delta-Faucet 45072

Delta Faucet 45072-SN, Satin Nickel
  • Satin Nickel
  • Spring actuated brass roller
  • Screws and mounting template included

Delta Faucet has made a name for itself by the construction of high-quality home appliances, and this one is no exception. It is made from solid steel with a beautiful finish of satin nickel. It is competitively priced, with the screws and mounting template also included.

Satin nickel is not very different from polished nickel, so if you have your other bathroom made from brushed nickel, this toilet paper holder will still blend in very well. It holds both regular-sized and jumbo toilet paper rolls.

4. Designer Impressions Recessed Toilet Paper Holder

  • Finish: Oil Rubbed Bronze

It is made from all metal (aluminum), and as a result, it is very sturdy. Screws and mounting brackets are included in the shipment.

5. Rocky Mountain Goods Recessed Toilet Paper Holder

Rocky Mountain Goods Recessed Toilet Paper Holder...
  • Heavy duty metal construction with premium finish
  • Saves space in your bathroom
  • Rear mounting bracket install kit

This Rocky Mountain Goods recessed toilet paper holder is heavy-duty, sturdy, and well-made too, with a premium finish. The finishes available are Venetian bronze, brushed nickel, and chrome.

It comes with the necessary mounting hardware. One thing you might notice is that the Venetian bronze toilet paper holder is a little darker than you might expect. It is not a problem for me, but I know it could be for some people.

Other than that, this is a great product. It has a lifetime warranty.

6. Moen 575 Donner Collection Recessed Paper Holder

On Sale
Moen 575 Donner Collection Recessed Paper Holder,...
  • VERSATILE DESIGN: Chrome finish is highly reflective for a mirror-like look that works with any decorating style
  • REQUIRED: clamp required for installation (br587 or 588), not included
  • CONSTRUCTION: Shell is stamped from a special alloy brass strip

Moen is another brand that never disappoints. I have seen and used most of their products, and I can assure you they are very well crafted and also last long. This is another of their great products.

As a matter of fact, I would have put this product a little higher on the list were it not for the fact that you have to buy the mounting bracket separately. I find that inconvenient, and I would rather they have everything together, even if it means adjusting the price upwards.

All the same, it is a great product that is backed by a lifetime warranty.

7. Franklin Brass 9097SN Recessed Paper Holder

Franklin Brass 9097SN Recessed Paper Holder, Satin...
  • SPACE SAVING: Recessed design saves space and offers convenient use
  • FINISH: Refresh but stay subtle with satin nickel’s smooth, velvety, low-gloss silver finish
  • BUILT TO LAST: Long-lasting, durable finish resists corrosion, tarnish, and discoloration

The Franklin Brass 9097SN is a solid metal recessed toilet paper holder that is both attractive and well-designed. It is available in polished chrome and satin nickel finishes.

This holder comes with the mounting screw but not the rear clamp/bracket. Be sure to buy the bracket separately.

If you use mega toilet rolls, then you will like this holder because they will fit in perfectly well. The spring-loaded bar is, however, a bit strong and will need extra effort to release and change toilet paper rolls. It’s not much of a bother, though.

8. Spiretro Wall-Mount Recessed Toilet Paper Holder

Spiretro Wall Mount Toilet Paper Holder,...
  • Organize your toilet paper and decorative your bathroom. Adjustable wrought metal wire offers convenient roll paper dispensing. Cube box to reserve 2 rolls paper for backup. You can storage your phone...
  • A creative blend of rich, handy craft rustic torched wood in distressed grey and industrial power coated metal fixture blends to create a farmhouse piece with a modern feel.
  • Perfect size to build on wall in bathroom, washroom, and loo. Approximate Dimensions (in inches): 10” W x 14.5” H x 5" D.

This toilet paper holder is a little different from the others. It is made from wood and wall-mounted with a recessed compartment/shelf for toilet paper storage and another for dispensing.

The major problem I have with recessed toilet paper holders is that they do not have a way of storing extra rolls, unlike freestanding toilet paper holders. This holder takes care of that problem, and you will never find yourself in a “crisis.”

The disadvantage of this holder is that it is not ideal for people with really small bathrooms since it protrudes from the bathroom wall.

If you, however, have a bit of space, then by all means, go for it. The rustic torchwood just looks amazing.

It is pretty easy to install and comes with all the screws and mounting brackets. The matte black and brushed nickel finishes look great, but of course, your choice should be determined by your overall bathroom décor/style.

10. Mintcraft 776H-07-SOU Recessed Toilet Paper Holder

On Sale
MINTCRAFT 776H-07-SOU Paper Holder Recess, Brushed...
  • Item Weight: 1.14 lb
  • Country of Origin: China
  • Color: Brushed Nickel

The Mintcraft recessed toilet paper holder is available in Venetian bronze and brushed nickel. I love that it is made of a heavy-duty metal which makes it really study once you install it.

I have only 2 problems with this product:

  • The screws are longer than usual, and you might need to cut them.
  • It is shallow and therefore does not fit the large toilet paper rolls. You might force it, but it will be really hard to remove the initial layers of the rolls.

Other than for the above concerns, this toilet paper holder is well-made, looks and works as advertised.


Recessed toilet paper holders are a great way of saving bathroom space. It may not look like much, but sometimes an inch can make a very big difference. As we have seen, it is also important to try as much as possible to match your toilet paper holder with other bathroom items to obtain a uniform style.


I am confident that whichever of the 10 toilet paper holders reviewed in this article you settle for, they will be worth your while.
