Bath Towel Buying GuideThere are those who see the act of bathing as simply a daily act of maintenance, in which the most utilitarian supplies are necessary in order to accomplish this goal as quickly as possible.
And then there are the rest of us: who take our time in the process, relishing a few moments of solitude and indulgence amidst the hubbub of daily life. In this camp, we seek out the best in personal care, the fluffiest robe, and of course, the most luxurious towels to start - or end - the day in comfort and sensory satisfaction.
Fortunately, among Distinctive-Decor.com's selection, there's something for everyone.
First of all, check the gram weight, measured in grams per square meter. This refers to the density of the towel. The more dense the towel, the heaver and more absorbent it will be. Typically, towels vary between 300 GSM and 900 GSM. A gram weight of 300 - 400 is suitable for a towel that needs to dry quickly, such as a kitchen towel or one you would take to the gym. 400 - 500 gram weight is a medium weight that works well for beach towels or guest towels. A gram weight of 600 or above is ideal for the luxury feel, or "hand" of truly fine towels.
Second, check the detail work and decoration. Quality towel manufacturers place special emphasis on seams, stitching, and addition of embroidery or quality trim. We insist upon double-stitching of each seam and careful addition of any decorations. You can rest assured that we have narrowed the field considerably in choosing luxury brands of towels and linens to offer our customers.
Third, consider any textures and colors available. For some, it's important to have decorator colors that coordinate perfectly. Others want the "luxury hotel spa" experience with clean, crisp neutrals that are the hallmark of quality rooms in the best locations. You may want a texture that mirrors or complements your decor, or a simple terry that envelops you in high-quality softness. Only you know what is important to you, so we have taken care to offer a wide selection of styles, textures, and colors.
Once you're aware of the difference in towels, you'll have a better idea of what will suit your needs and wants in order to elevate your bathing from mere routine to a daily indulgence.
