Want your bathroom to feel luxurious, like an at-home spa or top-class hotel? The details make all the difference: Think a bathroom tray, soap dispensers, and ample space for displaying cosmetics and cosmetics. Above all, the selection of good-quality, matching towels of varying size types will get the look and feel you’re after.
When it comes to towels, invest in the best you can afford. They are, after all, what you hold against your skin – the largest organ of the body. If your skin is sensitive – or you simply prefer fabrics that feel wholesome against your skin – poor-quality towels simply won’t do.
Ideally, you want to have matching towels including the main types: bath sheets (which are the largest); bath towels (the regular type used for drying off the body); face towels; hand towels; and bath mats.
When choosing bath towels (generally sized at 70cm x 135-140cm), thicker, heavier towels made from mostly cotton are usually more absorbent. Remember that their softness will wane after a few washes, so choose the softest kind you can find in store. Cotton blends are more durable than 100% cotton, so they’ll last longer. And two-ply is always better than one-ply.
Style wise, white is always a winner – especially if you’re going for that hotel aesthetic. But other neutral shades will work, too, depending on your overall design scheme. For example, contemporary furniture in your bedroom and bathroom could allow for other shades, such as beige, grey or navy. To consider the wellbeing of not only your skin, but also the planet, choose towels made from eco-friendly fabrics.
