>> Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Today we’re

dreaming of towels. Fresh, new, fluffy towels. The soon to come final step and stamp of approval on our halfway partially finished master bath remodel.

The question we have for you is all about bath towels. Where do you like to buy them? Do you prefer to buy inexpensive towels and replace more frequently, or spend a few extra buck on towels to last you for the long haul? Do you go for the clean feel of white towels, or add a pop of color with a bright hue or funky print? We wanna know, so spill your towel shopping guts!

I discovered a few years ago that Horchow often puts their towels on sale for a great price, you just have to watch for it. I like to get their fluffy white Ralph Lauren Lawton towel, a deal when it's $10 with monogram. (I love me a monogrammed towel!) Otherwise, I always find myself stopping in the towel section of Home Goods to take their goodies in...they have some good brands as well as some fun patterned towels at great prices.

Laura, I hadn't thought about Horchow. Great suggestion! Maybe we'll get lucky and catch a sale!

TJ maxx or Home Goods. Both had really nice towels, high quality for a very low price. I also get a lot of my bed linens at those two places. Good luck with finishing the bath. I am excited to see.

We like the TY Pennington "Style" bamboo towels from Sears. (especially when we find them on sale). They are soft and absorbent and they stand up well to multiple washings. I've tried the dark (brown)and light (white) colors and have been pleased with both.

Good tips, Susan! I'll have to go "see the softer side of Sears"...I couldn't resist.

With kids and dogs I would rather buy cheapt towels more often than let myself stress over keeping the "good towels" in decent condition.

Jill, I don't think BB&B is boring at all! I could get lost in there :)

Anderson, gotta love TJ!

I hear you on the dog issue, Reagan! Funny how beach towels made for relaxing on the beach end up being used to wipe down muddy paws.

I keep a few nice towels on hand for when we have company. Once company leaves I wash the nice towels, fold them and put them on the top shelf of our linen closet so that they will stay in good shape until we have guest again.

white white white white!!!! I MUST be able to bleach the ever lovin' daylights out of them!

I have to admit, I'm a fan of white myself for the same reason. Plus dark towels in our house always end up covered in little white Ralph furs.

I bought yellow and white striped towels at a pottery barn outlet and they are my absolute favorite towels. I haven't seen them in a while in stores though.
