Plain towels with a boring stripes pattern of are being replaced by decorative bath towels, which reflect the aesthetic taste of the home owner.
Tips for Buying
Since decorative towels can up the style quotient of your bathroom (or any room for that matter), you should be very particular about the color scheme you select. It can be either in sync with the rest of the décor of the house or in contrast. You have several options when it comes to buying decorative towels.
You can either purchase very expensive Egyptian towels or you may invest in a couple of pristine white fluffy ones made from high quality material. The cost of these towels is always an issue of concern, since they rarely come at affordable prices. However, you may look for sales, discounts or you may even consider making them yourself.
Also buy a decorative fabric for trimming, mostly heavy brocaded upholstery fabric. You will need to trim the fabric only at one end of the towel, since the other end will always remain folded.
Hence, buy fabric according to the measurements of a single end of the towel. If you wish you may also buy a contrasting braid to run across the edge of towel. Sew the braid and trim in zigzag fashion to the towel. Remove the fraying at the ends and give a nice finished touch to the towel.
However, you may want to take into account the color combination of your bath towels, in order to hang them in the most exquisite manner. If you are stacking only a couple of white towels, then placing a colorful fresh flower may look extremely impressive. Also place a bottle of novelty shampoo or soap on top of the towel to treat your guests specially.
They can also serve as ideal gift item for new mothers, with their baby's name embroidered on the towel. Decorative bath rugs is another luxury item you can gift to your loved ones.
You may place decorative bath towels on a heated towel rack to offer them to your guests at the end of a sumptuous meal. You probably cannot think of a better way to end a lavish extravaganza!
