Bath Sheet vs Bath Towel

Bath Sheet vs Bath Towel

If you’re in the market for new towels for your bathroom, you may be wondering what the best option is. You may have encountered bath sheets and bath towels and wondered, what’s the difference? The two differ, but not by much more than a few inches. Both have pros and cons, and it comes down to your priorities for bath towels.

Of course, you need a super soft fabric that will be comfortable on your skin and provide maximum absorption so that you can dry your body quickly. Both bath sheets and bath towels can provide this, but the material the towel is made from makes a huge difference.

What’s the Difference?

Bath sheet vs bath towels comes down to size. Bath sheets tend to be bigger than bath towels. Our towels are 30” x 56”, whereas our bath sheets are 36” x 70”.

Bath Towels

While bath sheets provide more coverage and work better for taller folk, bath towels are great because they take up less space, which is perfect if you have a smaller bathroom or minimal closet space. Bath towels also tend to cost less, which makes them a more budget-friendly option. They take up less space in the washer and dryer and require less energy to dry.

Bath Sheets

Bath sheets provide a generous amount of fabric for more body coverage when drying you off. They’re perfect for folks who like extra fabric for wrap-around comfort.

Beach Towels

Beach towels differ from both towels because they typically have fewer fibers, making them less absorbent. Beach towels are great for the beach because they’re lightweight. They don’t need to be as absorbent as a bath towel because you have the sun to dry you on the beach.

Towel Lines

We have several bath towel lines to choose from within our home and bath section. You can’t go wrong with whichever fabric you choose, as all the towels are absorbent, soft, and high-quality.

  • Turkish cotton spa - this line is made from 100% Turkish cotton, with a tight weave and a hefty feel.
  • Premium 100% Supima® Cotton - Supima cotton towels are made with a premium, ultra-soft American-grown cotton.

  • Organic 100% Turkish Cotton - with an eco-friendly twist on the classic cotton and super soft feel.
  • Supima® Cotton Tencel - certified compostable, biodegradable, and ultrasoft fibers make for an earth-conscious choice.

Not only do new towels look good, but they feel great. That ultrasoft feeling of the plush fibers against your skin is simply heaven. With high-end fibers such as the ones listed above, your towels will maintain their color and softness for a long time.

Towel Colors

Towels come in a variety of colors. This means you can pick out the colors that best suit your bathroom theme. It can be fun to mix a few colors that go well together to have color options. Or, each inhabitant of the home gets a different color, so that way you never get confused and use the other person’s towel.

Update Your Towels

New towels are a great way to complement the new wall color if you're looking to redecorate your bathroom. New towels can have the room feel brand new. White is a classic color that goes with everything if you’re unsure what your bathroom's future color theme will be. If you don’t have a window in your bathroom, opt for a bright color that will lighten the room.

Towel Sets

Now that we’ve discussed the differences between bath sheets and bath towels, you might be wondering what a full towel set looks like. You’ll want to get hand towels to hang next to the sink for folks to dry their hands and washcloths /shop/bath-towels/S-xgb-xf6-xkh-xec-yey) for drying your face after washing. These will complement the bath sheets and/or bath towels.


Our towels can be monogrammed, a super cute detail that will set your towels apart. Personalized towels add a unique and elegant touch, and make it so that there’s no confusion over who uses the towel in a multi-person household.

Complementary Items With Your Towels

No bathroom is complete without a bath rug. Select from any of the above materials for a soft, comfortable feel on your feet when. Our towels are matchable with our bathroom rugs for better coordination in the bathroom. These non-skid rugs provide stability when you step out of the shower. You can also invest in a new shower curtain and shower curtain liner while you’re at it.

When choosing between bath towels and bath sheets, think about what it is you’re looking for, whether it be space-saving qualities or more fabric. Getting new towels is a great way to redecorate your bathroom, and you’ll love the soft, comfortable feeling of the new fabric.
