Should you buy a rug for your bathroom?
A bathroom rug is nothing short of essential. Here few reasons proving it:
A chic item will make your bathroom look more complete and really add to the overall aesthetic. These products also come to the rescue when you’re looking to imbue a specific vibe to a space but are running short on ideas.
No one likes a pool of water in the bathroom. And, let’s not forget that these spills can become host to bacteria, mold, and other germs. By placing these products in the right places, you can effectively keep your bathroom free of spills and pooled water.
Things to consider when buying a rug for your bathroom
Now that you know all about the benefits of having a rug in your bathroom, here are three important factors you should consider before pulling the trigger on a purchase:
First thing’s first, make sure that your new product fits well in your bathroom. We recommend measuring the area where you’d like to place it, then referring to the measurements available on the product page. The general rule of thumb is to place smaller items under the sink or at the entrance shower to a shower.
You can also go for runner models if you have more space in your bathroom. Along with the length and width, you must also consider height. This is especially true if you’re planning on placing it in an area a door goes over. In such cases, you should opt for something low profile enough to not become an obstacle.
Most of these products come backed with some sort of an anti-skid element. This can be in the form of rubberized dots or hot melt sprayed adhesives. Regardless, an anti-slip product will stay in place and not slide when a floor gets wet. This may sound like the best invention ever but you may not need an anti-slip version.
Colors & design
Most interior decorators say that you should complement the overall theme of your bathroom with these kinds of products. So, basically, if your bathroom and its fixtures have a neutral theme, the safest bet is to go for an option in a muted shade.
However, you can always go crazy on the decor, adding a pop of color to your bathroom by adding contrasting colors and patterns into the mix. In short, what’s important is that you have the power to do whatever you like with decor. So, it’s a good idea to opt for items coming in a vast array of designs and colors for you to play around with.
Bathroom products like these are usually made with either microfiber, cotton, or velvet. Each fabric boasts a unique set of benefits over others so you should choose accordingly. For example, microfiber is extremely comfortable, durable, and lightweight but it isn’t as absorbent as cotton.
Cotton versions are generally cheaper but they don’t offer the type of luxury that velvet models provide. Velvet items usually boast memory foam cushioning which really enhances the level of comfort and support they provide.
How did we choose our favorite bathroom rugs?
We looked for these three factors when shortlisting the top bathroom mats for you:
A bathroom mat is supposed to aid with your home’s maintenance by keeping your bathroom clean. So, it’s no good if the piece of cloth itself is hard to maintain. So, we made sure that all our listed products were machine washable, easy to clean, and quick-drying.
Comfort & warmth
No one likes stepping out of the shower onto cold hard floors. So, the second thing that our team ensured was to only select mats providing some sort of cushioning, offering coziness for your feet.
Last but not least, a bathroom mat that can’t hold water well is no good, right? So, when selecting our top picks, we made sure to only consider products that quickly and thoroughly absorbed water without becoming overly heavy.
