I'd like to replace the towel bar in the powder room. It seems like its glued to the wall...does not screw off like I thought. How is it anchored to the wall and how can i replace it. It's looks like the builder standard type and I'd like ot replace it with something more decorative.

thanks k2....

I looked and I don't see any screws. The brackets are a ceramic type material and they seem like they are flush with the wall as if glued. Should I try to pry it off?

thanks for your input k2!

I think this is a project I am going to bypass. The ceramic base of the towel bar is glued to the wall (not tiled wall). I'm not handy with fixing a gaping hole in the drywall. So at this point I think I will have to settle for decorative towels!

Thanks again.
