Towels.

Another room in the house that didn't used to be in the house (thankfully, before our time) that has now become a very important part of any house: the bathroom. Sure, it's got that functional role, but these days new bathrooms are as big as studio apartments-and a Lot fancier, too. To that end, Home Furnishings Now offers some things on the next few pages that are bound to make your bath room--whatever its size--a better place.

Sweeping Superstitions: "To prevent an unwelcome guest

from returning, sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave." We think cleaning up after house guests is a pretty good rule of thumb, even if you wanted them to come back. Shopping Insider: Probably no other product impacts your bathroom experience the way a towel does. Good towels are great, bad towels are really bad. So where you buy your next towel is critical. That's why the advice from our group of industry insider experts is pretty important. Where would

they shop for a towel? As with some other products for the home, our business pros like the Big-Box stores like Bed Bath & Beyond and Linens 'n Things. Nearly half our group recommended these kinds of stores. About one-third suggested department stores. No one said the hotel down the block. When it came to a different sort of item for the bathroom, an electric hair dryer, our insiders liked different sources, especially discount stores such as Target and Wal-Mart. Almost half our experts would send you to one of these kinds of stores. Curiously, almost a quarter of the group suggested a professional source, either a beauty supply outlet or your local hairdresser. No hotel votes here, either.
