There are numerous ways to decorate a guest bathroom. One way is with monogrammed towels. These towels are popular as wedding gifts, but consider purchasing them for your own bathrooms.

Choose towels based on your color scheme and design. If your guest bathroom is mostly black, with a dash of red, perhaps your choice is red towels to pull out the color red. If your guest bathroom is a soft pink, you’ll want to stick with a soft pink color scheme.

Then choose your letters. You can now begin to get creative. For example, for a guest bathroom of Jenny and Tom Smith, choose “S,” the first letter of the last name. A single letter on each towel is an attractive monogram. Or, how about the first letters of Jenny and Tom, along with the letter S. This is the standard three letter combination for a married couple.

Which letter goes on what side? In today’s modern world, there are no hard and fast rules. But the traditional way is for the man’s first initial to go on the left, the woman’s first initial to go on the right and the first initial of the last name to go in the middle.

There are many different letter styles to choose from. Some are traditional with that old world flavor. Others are hip and ultra modern. Letters should fall on the bottom middle of your hand towel or bath towel. Choose the color of the letters to match properly with your towels. A red towel in a black bathroom would look great with black lettering, for example.
