What to Consider when Buying Bath Towels, Hand Towels, and Washcloths

 

Shopping to find the perfect towel is a struggle. Trying to figure out the perfect size, materials, weight, and sizes while still having it be stylish and affordable is a lot. At HYC Design, we know this best, which is why we're providing you with some helpful tips on what to consider before purchasing one.

Purpose

 When picking out a towel for your bathroom, you first need to figure out what its purpose will be. For example, you might want a towel that’s more absorbent and quick drying. Or maybe something more lightweight and has a sleek design. Figuring this out is the basis for every other factor.  Though towels may all seem the same they all have small yet noticeable factors that make them differ from the rest. You want to find a towel that fulfils all your needs and is perfect for its intended purpose.
 

 

Materials & Fabrics

 As aforementioned, this factor is heavily dependent on the last. Once you know the purpose of your towel you can figure out what materials you'd like to use for it. You need to consider what materials will do the job you want them to do best. Microfiber is perfect for a lightweight yet absorbent towel, it also works well with bathrobes and other products in relation. Or maybe even a blend of cotton and polyester for a different texture that also works with sensitive skin. These are the most commonly used fabrics when it comes to towels. They all have their purposes and are effective in their way.

Weight & Sizing 

 Weight depends on the material you pick out. Cotton makes towels much heavier but also gives them that softer feel. And as previously stated microfiber makes towels much lighter. Sizing also has a lot to do with weight. You don't want to pick out a towel that's too heavy for a head wrap or one that's too flimsy to dry yourself off with. You also want to pick out a towel that's the perfect size. Make sure to always double-check sizing before purchasing anything especially if it's online.  On our website, we make sure to put our dimensions in our product descriptions & specifications. 

 

Quality

Finding towels of high quality are tricky. Not because it's hard to find but because of their price range. High quality is usually tied to a high price tag. However, at HYC Design we want to make your life easier which is why we provide all sorts of towels to fulfill your needs at an affordable price. We sell bath towels pool towels, and even bath mats. We provide:

 

Moderate or Excessive Use

This relates to the quality of the towel. Depending on how you’re going to be using the towel and how excessively should help you decide how high quality of a towel you want to buy. You should invest in a more expensive towel if you’re using it for the long term, however if it’s for a guest bathroom maybe you don’t want to spend your whole budget on it since it won’t be used frequently. Another thing you should consider is how many people will be using this towel. Maybe multiple people will be using the towel consecutively or it could just be a personal towel just for you. Just because you use a towel lightly doesn’t mean the person before or after you does as well.
