Want your bathroom to feel like an at-home spa, or the kind of luxurious space you step into when you book into a top-class resort? Think about the small details such as the smallest bathroom accessories, because they make a huge difference: These include the bathroom tray with useful toiletries and accessories, such as earbuds, soap and shaving products. The ample space for displaying fragrances and cosmetics. And, above all, the selection of good-quality, matching towels of varying size types.
When it comes to towels, don’t scrimp. They are, after all, what you use against your skin – the largest organ of the body. If your skin is sensitive – or if you’re the kind of tactile person sensitive to the way fabrics feel against your skin – poor-quality towels simply won’t do.
In addition to feeling good when drying off, a towel should be durable; it should fit in with the décor; and it should be the right size for its function (and your body size). There are several towel types to choose from, including: large bath sheets; bath towels; face towels; and the hand towel.
Face towels are important, especially for people who take their skincare routines seriously. For your skin’s TLC, dermatologists say you should avoid rubbing it with abrasive materials that will strip it of essential oils, causing dryness. The fabric should be gentle.
Style wise, you can’t go wrong with white. But other neutrals work well, too. 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.
