Have you ever slipped on a wet bathroom floor? Not a pleasant experience, right? Bathroom mats serve a dual purpose in the bathroom. They add a touch of style and beauty to your bathroom interiors. Secondly, they prevent slips and falls by absorbing water and keeping your bathroom floor dry. Bathroom mats also protect your floor from water damage, which can be costly to repair. So, not only do they look good, but they also help to keep you safe and your bathroom in good condition.
It is extremely important for your stylish bathroom mat not only to add charm to your washroom but also to serve the practical purpose of preventing slips and falls. However, with so many options to choose from, finding the perfect mat can be overwhelming. But don't worry, we've got you covered!
Check out these tips to pick the ideal bathroom mat that fits your needs and style.
Size and Shape: The size and shape of the mat are important factors to consider. Measure the floor space in your bathroom to determine the appropriate size of the mat. If you have a large bathroom, consider using two or more mats. Rectangular mats are the most common shape, but round or oval mats can add a unique touch to your bathroom decor.
Material: Bathroom mats are available in a variety of materials such as cotton, microfiber, bamboo, and memory foam. Cotton mats are a popular choice as they are soft, absorbent and easy to clean. Microfiber mats like the Elegance and Plush Collections are quick-drying and machine-washable below 30 degrees Celsius. Bamboo mats are eco-friendly and durable. Memory foam mats provide ultimate comfort and support underfoot.
Non-slip features: Slips and falls in the bathroom can be dangerous, especially for children and the elderly. Choose a mat with a non-slip backing that is made of TRP or a rubber bottom to prevent the mat from sliding on a wet floor. Look for mats with a high-grip surface that will provide traction for your feet.
Ease of cleaning: Bathroom mats can become dirty quickly due to exposure to moisture and dirt. Choose a mat that is easy to clean and maintain. Mats made of cotton or microfiber can be machine-washed, and with the addition of light-colored bath mats like the Elegance EL-01 Bath Mat, you can easily spot dirt and clean them. Likewise, bamboo mats should be wiped down with a damp cloth, and memory foam mats should be spot cleaned with mild detergent.
Style and Design: Bathroom mats come in a variety of styles and designs to complement your bathroom decor. Consider the color scheme, pattern, and texture of the mat. Neutral and warm colors such as white, beige, and grey are timeless and can match any interior. Bold and deep colors and patterns stand out and add a pop of color to your bathroom.
Durability: A good bathroom mat should be durable and able to withstand frequent use and exposure to moisture. Mats made of microfibre and cotton are durable and can withstand repeated washing. Bamboo mats are naturally water-resistant and can resist mold and mildew. Memory foam mats can lose their shape over time, so it's important to choose a high-quality mat.
To summarize, selecting the appropriate bathroom mat is essential not only for its appearance but also for its functionality. Discover your favorite bath mats in the Elegance and Plush Collections for your bathroom that will not only keep your floors dry but also reduce the risk of accidents.
