Bathroom Towels

Good quality bathroom towels can add a real touch of luxury to your bathroom.

Fluffy cotton towels have the best absorbency but can be quite bulky to fold which can be a problem if you have to thread them through a heated towel rail. Waffle pattern towels are easier to fold but are a bit less absorbent.



Bathroom towels can sometimes be bought in sets or individually if you have specific requirements. The common towels that you would choose from include:

  • Face Cloth
  • Hand Towel
  • Bath Towel
  • Bath Sheet
  • Super Jumbo Sheet

Approximate sizes for these items are 30 x 30cm for the Face Cloth, 50x90cm for the Hand Towel, 70x125cm for he Bath Towel, 100x150cm for the Bath Sheet and 115x180cm for a Super Jumbo Sheet. These sizes are just meant as a rough guide and will vary from make to make so check with your retailer before buying.

Your choice of bathroom towel can even have an effect on the verall bathroom design. Many small bathrooms use white and light colours extensiveley to make the room feel as light and airy as possible. The downside of this is that the room can seema little "clinical" and cold - but adding brightly coloured towels can really give the room a lift, especially when combined with co-ordinating bathroom blinds and or curtains.

White bathroom towels are the most difficult to keep looking immaculate, but a nice pile of fluffy white towels does look extremely attractive.

When people buy a bathroom these days, it is nearly always white. When you combine this with white or very subtle white marble bathroom wall finishes it can make a bathroom look a like an operating theatre, so coloured bathroom towels can add a welcome splash of colour. Coloured towels are also a little more practical in everyday use.
