Guests visiting your vacation rental property have different needs and expectations than hotel guests.
They recognize that some of the things they’d enjoy at a hotel – room service, a housekeeper bringing fresh towels every morning – won’t be available.
Still, your guests will expect great service, and the amenities you offer them can mean the difference between someone who stays with you one time and someone who keeps coming back. Here are a few amenities for vacation rental guests to add to your property.
Are bath towels and bath sheets interchangeable?
While they have the same function, they’re not the same thing. So what’s the difference between a bath towel and a bath sheet?
The simple answer is that a bath sheet is larger than a bath towel. Most bath towels measure a minimum of 27 inches by 54 inches, although some better towels can measure 30 inches by 60 inches.
In comparison, a bath sheet can measure anywhere from 30 inches by 64 inches to 40 inches by 70 inches, depending on the manufacturer. A bath sheet provides more than twice the surface area of a bath towel.
The size difference makes bath towels less expensive than bath sheets, but each item has its own purpose and advantages.
Q. How does a bath rug differ from a tub/bath mat?
A. A tub mat or bath mat is usually an extension of a towel program, and used specifically right outside the tub to absorb water following a shower or bath.
A bath rug, however, serves multiple purposes. From a design standpoint, a bath rug can make a significant difference in the look of your bathroom. It can complement the overall color scheme of the bathroom or coordinate with the bath towels.
Available in various colors, textures and sizes, you have the option of changing out the bath rug when you need a new look.
Functionally, a bath rug, like a tub mat, helps absorb water from your body when you are stepping out of the shower or bath—it keeps excess water off the floor and prevents slipping on wet tiles. A 100% cotton bath rug is the best alternative, as cotton absorbs many times its weight in water and dries fast.
