How to Choose Bath Towels
When you step out of the bath or shower, you want a towel that is luxuriously soft and absorbent. The bathroom is like an oasis in the home but is often overlooked when planning the decor. Why not bring some sophistication into this space by choosing bath towels that are not only hard-working and long-wearing but also beautiful extensions of your style? Towels are an easy way to update the look of your bath, and a variety of colors and styles keep the room looking fresh. You can choose pieces that blend with your existing color scheme, or try patterns and textures that play off existing elements to energize the space. For further customization, try mixing colors, patterns and even borders between your washcloths, hand and bath towels, and bath sheets.
Towel Materials and Sizes
One hundred percent cotton provides the most absorbency and is a great choice for any room in the home. For true luxury, choose Egyptian or Turkish cotton weights. Egyptian cotton has extra long fibers that enhance durability and absorbency. Opulent Turkish cotton lends a lavish, plush feel that dries quickly and becomes even softer after multiple washes. Turkish cotton fits beautifully into any bath space because of its excellent softness and strength. Consider this material for hand towels in the hallway bathroom to give guests a touch of luxury. A bath towel is great for spaces such as small bathrooms, the guest bathroom or even your gym bag. While they may be smaller for the adult body, bath towels work well for wrapping around children and hair after a shower. Expansive bath sheets provide more absorbency and more comfort because they are larger than bath towels. Because of their size, they are easier to hang on a wall hook instead of folding them on a wall rack. Look for products certified for safety and environmental sustainability.
What Is a Bath Sheet?
A bath sheet is a large bath towel. Measuring 35"x58" minimum, bath sheets can be wide and long enough to wrap entirely around your body as you get ready in the bathroom.
