You put a little cream on your face and reach for a towel. You finish your evening cleansing ritual and reach for a towel. Come the weekend, you’re sorting the laundry and, in a fit of this-load-is-too-small, you gather the towels up with the household rags and throw them all in the wash together. Thus did those beautiful green-coloured towels end up with grey splotches.
Designing luxurious living spaces isn’t about the big, brash and ornate. Creating an environment that oozes sophistication is about attention to detail. It’s the elegant little French country style table in the entrance way, or the red vase resting on your coffee table, placed strategically to give your pine green sofa a little extra flare. It’s those special Egyptian cotton hand towels you’ve placed in the guest bathroom to offer your dinner guests that extra level of comfort and refinement. If you are trying to create tasteful living spaces, think about themes, comfort and convenience. Here are a few design tips to help make your living spaces simple and elegant.
Your towels say a lot about you. Their quality, softness and colour all play a part in expressing your personal taste and the value you place on quality and luxury in the home. Towels are used every day and they should be chosen and treated as such.
Whether you are shopping for towels to hang in the master bathroom or to tuck away for guests, use these 3 simple steps to help you buy the best quality towels your money can buy.
In hospitality, the guest experience always comes first. Happy guests are repeat customers who recommend their stay to others. A lot of work usually goes into providing guests the best, most comfortable experience, and that means attention to detail. A great hotel will offer little extras that make the stay just that extra bit more appealing.
Put some beautiful hand towels in the kitchen and you know they’re going to meet with all sorts of disaster. It’s the kitchen, after all. If you’re intent on keeping those towels pristine, though, you’ll need a few things always at hand for stain emergencies: baking soda, cornstarch, liquid dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, and Shout.
While most people wash their towels at fairly regular intervals, there may be some linens that you should wash more often than you think. A smelly towel is a sure-fire way of telling that it’s high time to wash it, or perhaps even discard it. But with these guidelines you can significantly improve the hygiene of your linens.
Expect miraculous results when drying with a microfibre towel. These towels are impressively absorbent and can typically soak up more onto a smaller surface. But run your hands through a microfibre towel or cloth and while they feel soft, they do have a strange tape like quality where they stick to your fingers. That feeling is caused by fine synthetic fibres clinging on to moist surfaces.
Why do we make a point of noting the weight of all our towels? Because it is an important indicator of how your towels will feel. Many, many companies market their towels as “luxury” or “hotel quality”, especially online. Read the fine print, however, and you’ll notice either the absence of a weight or a weight that, in our book, hardly puts these items in the luxury category.
