Different types of toilet roll holders
Toilet roll holders can be equipped with a special cover designed to make it easier to tear the paper from the roll. Other models come in a cylindrical shape are are able to store several rolls of paper at once. These holders can be fixed to the wall using rawlplugs.
Positioning your toilet roll holder
Logically, toilet paper holders are generally installed close to the toilet (they wouldn't be much use in the kitchen!).
For smaller spaces, wall-mounted toilet paper stands are ideal. In this case, it's important to install the holder at the right height for ease of use.
If it's not possible to drill into the wall, a freestanding holder will be your best option. You can also get models fitted with suction cups that can be stuck onto tiled walls.
