Towels are an absolute necessity for your bathroom routine, so we tend to just use any old towel without much thought! But, now is the time to put a little consideration into the towels you choose to ensure that it meets both your purpose and style needs!
The right density
Density means everything when it comes to towels, and the key is to look out for the GSM (grams per square metre) as this will determine the best type for your needs. Those with a low gsm are light, thin and easily portable perfect for the gym or travel purposes. A medium gsm are designed for everyday use as they are resistant and able to absorb substantially more moisture than a lower level. For pure luxury though, opt for towels of high gsm which have a warm and fluffy quality – perfect for cocooning yourself after jumping out of the shower!
The quality factor
The range of towels out there is enormous and can be extremely overwhelming when shopping for the perfect type. The key though is to look out for the quality – you want it to be tough enough to withstand everyday usage and continuous washing. Different fabric types can determine the quality element. Towels made of Egyptian cotton are considered to be one of the best as they are highly absorbent, lightweight and soft. If you’re looking for a lavish and fluffy finish, try towels made of Turkish cotton which also tick all the boxes of quality needed. For an ecologically-friendly and sensitive skin-friendly alternative that doesn’t lack in quality, Organic Cotton is the way to go!
The best match
While the density and quality are essential, the towels colour is also important as it can tie the whole look of your bathroom together. When trying to source the right towel, you’ll be confronted with a plethora of different colours and tones to suit your style and bathroom design. If you have a modern themed bathroom, think neutral tones to add a subtle pop of colour. For a vintage or classical bathroom, retro pastels will work a treat. Alternatively, to really brighten the room, try bold and creative patterned towels.
Choosing the perfect towels for your bathroom is not just about the look, but a combination of the right colour, preferred density and quality standard to ensure they enhance the style of your bathroom and meet your everyday needs!
