Returning to the blog, it is all about bath linens guide and their types. 

Let’s learn what factors must be considered while buying the best bath linen set for your bathroom.

What is Bath Linen? 

Bath linen is a bathroom set that represents a range of cleaning and drying towels. They are purposely designed towels or bath mats for comfort and convenience. Not just this, you can also use bath linens for decorative purposes to enhance your bathroom experience. 

They come in various styles, materials, and sizes. Luxury bath linen comes in varied sizes, from large-size bath sheets to tiny bath mitts. Shower curtains also fall into this category. 

The quality of the bath linen set is measured by considering various factors like: 

  • Softness 
  • Durability 
  • Absorbency 
  • Material 
  • Aesthetic appeal 

To ensure the bath linen set retains its regal touch even after a frequent wash, they require some care that shall be discussed later. 

Why Is It Called Linen?

Bath linen is called "linen" since it is used to refer to flax-based products. The name comes from "Linum," Latin for flax. When new textile materials were used, the word "linen" stuck to domestic items like towels and beddings, regardless of the fabric. Flax bath linens are no longer created, but the name lives on.

Types of Bath Linen

A bath linen set is a collection of bath towels that offers different sizes and functionalities.  The most common bath linen examples are: 

Bath Towels 

Bath towel is the most common linen bath item we use every day. The usual size range of a towel is from 70×130cm to 75×150 cm. It is used after a shower for wiping or drying off the body. You can also use bath towels while you sunbathe on the beach to cover your body to prevent skin tanning. A bath towel offers a comforting embrace after a long soak or quick rinse. 

Hand Towels 

Hand towels are the covenant most bath linen items you can use to wipe off your hands. You can grab the brightly colored hand towels for aesthetics.  

These towels are straightforward maintenance because of their small size and don’t require as much care. However, if hand towels are appropriately stored and washed correctly, you can enhance the towel’s longevity. 

The standard size range of hand towels is between 16 x 26 inches to 18 x 32 inches. 

Bath Sheets 

Bath sheets offer genuine extended warmth and coverage due to their large size. The plush material of bath sheets ensures superior absorbency. Furthermore, you can opt for them to create a spa-like ambiance right at your place, especially those made with Egyptian or Turkish Cotton. 

Bath sheets are designed for individuals who like an extra layer of luxury when drying off, whether poolside, after a warm shower, or as part of a weekend self-care ritual.

The standard size of a bath sheet ranges from 30 x 60 inches to 40 x 72 inches.  


Bathrobes are the most exotic linen sets people love draping themselves because they are soft and perfectly sized, like a gown. People even wear them as loungewear in winter.  The average size of a bathrobe is 97-107 cm. 

Bath Mats

Bath mats have progressed in both safety (by providing a non-slip surface after wet interactions) and style. They still do their original job of soaking up excess moisture, but now they also look good. They are typically positioned near the sink, tub, and toilet to catch accidental splashes

Shower Curtain

A shower curtain, often called a shower liner, is a curtain or liner draped around the perimeter of a bathtub or shower to create a more private space and contain any water that could otherwise splash out. Vinyl, polyester, and cotton linen are just some components that go into making them. A standard shower curtain is 175 inches by 180 inches. 

Face Towel/ Face Cloth

Face towels are little squares of soft fabric used to wash and dry the face. Cotton or a blend of fabrics makes it gentle on the face. Hotels and spas offer them so customers may clean their faces in a clean setting. Makeup removal, exfoliation, and refreshing cleaning are all done with the face cloth.

Beach Towel 

A beach towel is a specially designed towel sheet to provide absorbency at the beach or poolside. Beach towels are broader and brighter than bath towels, so you can dry quickly and comfortably after swimming. Beach towels are necessary, but vivid patterns, motifs, or themes that evoke summer and relaxation can make them fashion statements.

The standard size of a beach towel is 95 x180cm.

Care Tips for Bath Linens

  • Wash at a moderate temperature because extreme temperatures can affect absorbency and softness. 
  • Avoid the excessive use of bleach as it turns the bath towel set pale and affects the softness. You can use oxygen-based bleach for the white bath linen set.
