Why do I need a bath mat?


It’s inevitable that water will sneak past the shower curtain and drip from wet feet, making its way to the floor. Shower mats will soak up the extra water before it can become a hazard. Bath rugs also provide warmth when the weather is chilly. Plus, they complete the look of your bathroom by adding warm texture to the mostly hard and cold surfaces.

What size of bathroom rugs should I purchase?


This depends entirely on what area you want to cover and how large your bathroom is. Find a shower mat that’s proportionate to the tub and vanity that allows for adequate coverage. If it’s in front of a double vanity, you can choose separate rugs for each sink or one long runner rug for a seamless look. Measure the spaces before shopping so you can be sure of your purchase. In a small bath, be sure to allow room for the door to open without hitting your bath rug.

What qualities should I look for in a shower mat?


Durability is a high priority. Shower mats get wet on a regular basis and are stepped on frequently, so ensure their quality before buying. Look for a nonslip surface and rubber backing to minimize slipping when feet or the floor is wet. And be sure to check cleaning requirements. Most mats are made with cotton or chenille, which are machine washable, but some may need to be professionally cleaned.
