If you are stuck for ideas on how to pick your bath towels, take a look at your bathroom and pick out the colour that strikes you the most. This could be from the paint on the wall, the wallpaper, the shower curtain or the colours of your tile. By picking a colour that is already strong in your bathroom your towels will not stick out but be complementary to the whole décor.cream bath towels

It is very important that everything in your bath matches and is fully coordinated. Bath towels can play a very important role in this, so try very hard to match the decor of the bathroom and who it is aimed at with that of the towels. For example, if you are buying for the guest bathroom or a children’s bathroom, you will need to buy different coloured bath towels. For children, you will want to get something bright and colourful or even towels with the child's favourite cartoon character on it. You can get kids favourites such as Fireman Sam towels, Batman bath towels, Scooby-Doo, Ben 10, Disney Princess and a whole host of other characters.

Over time towels will fade with washing, so if you are worried about them looking a bit dated, buy neutral colours, such as whites and beige. White towels are also fantastic and can fit into any bathroom deco.

We all use bath towels, but most of us pay no attention to their colour and the potential they have for affecting the look in our bathrooms.
