Bath Mats

Bath mats are an important part of our bathroom decor – not only do they provide a dose of style and a splash of colour, but they also protect your floor from excess water and stop you from slipping. Bathroom mats come in a range of different colours, materials and styles, so there’s bound to be one on Houzz UK for you.

What are bath mats used for?


It’s inevitable that some water will sneak past the shower curtain or drip from wet feet and end up on the floor, and bath mats will soak up the extra water before it can become a hazard. They also provide warmth when the weather is chilly, and help complete the look of your bathroom by adding warm texture to the mostly hard and cold surfaces. Shower mats are slightly different to bath mats – they sit in the bottom of the bath or shower and provide an anti slip surface.

What size bath mat should I purchase?


This depends entirely on what area you want you cover, but generally it’s best to find a bathroom rug which is proportionate to the bath and allows for adequate coverage. If you want to cover the area in front of your sink as well as your bath, look for bath mat sets which usually consist of a bath mat and a pedestal mat. If you have a double vanity, you could choose separate rugs for each sink, or one long runner rug for a seamless look. Measure your space adequately before shopping so you can be sure of your purchase. In a small bathroom, be sure to allow room for the door to open without hitting your bath mat.

What are the best bath mats?


When choosing the best bathroom mat, durability is of high priority. Bath mats get wet on a regular basis and are stepped on frequently, so ensure the quality before buying. You should also look for non-slip baths mats with rubber backing to minimise slipping when your feet or the floor are wet. Machine washable sets may be the most convenient option for busy families, so be sure to checking the cleaning requirements before making a purchase. Most mats are made with cotton or chenille, which are machine washable, but some may need to be professionally cleaned.

What style bathroom rug should I choose?


Bath mats are a great way to inject colour or patterns into your bathroom. You can choose to match your mat to your bathroom accessories, or contrast with an oversized graphic or bold colour. Grey bath mats are a popular choice as they complement a lot of different interiors, rubber mats are practical but less aesthetically pleasing, whereas white mats, although lovely to look at, can get dirty very quickly especially with kids or pets around.
