Bath mats are a bathroom essential. Whether you opt for a plastic mat to sit inside your tub and prevent sliding or a fluffy mat to step out onto, both let you enjoy a relaxing bath without worrying about an unfortunate accident.
Bath rugs which typically sit outside the tub and are designed to stop you slipping on a wet floor, while also absorbing water from your feet and the tub, are an essential addition to your bathroom. As well as being something of a safety measure, a bath rug contributes to the look and feel of your bathroom, and with several different colours available, you’re sure to find one that will complement your interior design. Choosing a bath rug may seem simple, but there are a number of things to consider, such as its material – easy dry wood or plush cotton, it’s up to you. Bath mats get used regularly so you should select a mat that is easy to maintain. If you’re not likely to be throwing a fabric mat in the wash every few weeks, opt for hard-wearing wood.
Many bath rugs are made out of cotton or polypropylene but wooden duckboards are a popular alternative for those who prefer natural materials and a more contemporary feel when it comes to modern bath rugs.
A common sighting in any stylish bathroom is the bath mat and pedestal set. Where matching bathroom furnishings might have once seemed old-fashioned, they are now available in ever-more stylish designs. A toilet pedestal mat, when matched with the other textiles of the bathroom, is a great way of adding a pop of colour that can give your bathroom a new, fresh feel.
