Bath towel

"Good quality cotton are Egyptian cotton and Supima because of their high absorbency, durability and silky piles," shares interior designer Vera Villarosa. Usually, bath towels come in sizes ranging from 24" x 42" to 30" x 56."

Face cloth

If you want to create a hotel-like feel in your bathroom, you may want to prepare face cloths in one corner of the counter. Roll them neatly and place them in a tray to complete your space. You can use these cloths to wash your face and the small areas of the body. They come in different sizes such 12" x 12" and 13" x 13."

Hand towel

Hand towels are bigger than face cloths but smaller than bath towels. They are often used for half-baths and can work as a kitchen towel if needed.

Bath Mat

These are made to absorb water after stepping out of the shower. Some mats come with vinyl or rubber bottoms for a non-slip feature. Make sure you have a bath mat in the bathroom to avoid accidents—especially if you have kids and elderly in the house. 


A bathrobe is usually used while the wearer's body is still wet. It acts as a towel and an informal garment, too. If you're planning to buy one, pick one that's made of microfiber or silk.
