If I ever get my act together I'll build a raised panel door inset into the opening just like a "proper" door.

We do have the two towel racks on ours but we only put small towels on them, not heavy bath towels.

We have 2 large thristy towels hanging in bath on 2 metal hooks on bath door ,and 2 large metal hooks outside of door for jackets . On outside of door added a nice piece of oak screwed through to inside . And screwed inside bath through to outside door . Oak is about 4 in wide and the length of the door . Never had a issue . If hinges break you get replacements anywhere . The hooks are are nickel like trailer hardware . If you add a backing plate to screw into it makes it very strong for hangers . Pat

Never had any sagging or door problems in our current 19 or our previous 17, despite several towels and miscellaneous gear hung on these Umbra hooks.

The only issue I see with an inset door is that it will need stops, which will cut into the opening size a little bit and need jamb width for mounting.

Wouldn't "hidden hinges" would be hidden? None of these are, although the door-side leaf is on the inside, rather than on the outside like a "rustic" strap hinge. Neither leaf of a conventional door hinge is visible when the door is closed, but the pin area is out in the open, like the Escape cabinet hinges.

They are called "overlay" hinges because the way the leaf is bent places the edge of the door overlaid in front of the frame, rather than inset. If anyone is looking for replacements (whether direct, or differently mounted in some detail) to keep the door in the same place the way to find them is to look for "overlay" hinges.

I forgot another idea . I also have a closet rod near the outside bath wall , which you can remove easy , for wet suits , towels ,etc you don't want to leave outside at night etc. will take a picture later . I have reenforced walls so it is fine to screw into . Pat

If I were concerned about issues with the existing hinges, I would just add more of the same to spread the load before the problem occurs.
