The atmosphere of a room often comes down to the little details. And inspiring and quirky designer tea towels (yes you read that right designer tea towels) that give your kitchen an instant happiness hit are all the range right now.
I will admit, on first thought, they can seem overpriced. But the personality a tea towel gives your kitchen is priceless.
Plus, when you consider many of us spend thousands of dollars on kitchen renovations, it doesn’t really make sense to scrimp on a four pack of cheap tea towels from a discount store.
Opt for tea towels with inspirational quotes or uplifting images that will boost your mood and bring a smile to your face every time you see them. Tea towels also make a great gift. I was given a Jonathan Adler tea towel as a house-warming gift and I absolutely love it.
Although tea towels are very absorbent, make sure you use them for drying not wiping up. Wiping up spill on your kitchen bench could cause your designer tea towel to stain. Even worse, it could provide an ideal environment for bacteria to grow and spread. To keep your kitchen healthy, remember to treat your tea towels the same way you treat your cooking equipment. If you use it, wash it!
So why not ditch the boring tea towels and become part of this growing trend by gracing your kitchen with an inspiring mini artwork?
