Design bathroom mats - how to find the right model for your home

1. The right size for your bath mat

A bathroom mat is essential in every bathroom for two main reasons: Firstly, the security in your personal oasis of wellbeing is increased, because most bathroom carpets have a rubberized, non-slip underside so that you do not slip on the smooth, damp bathroom floor. On the other hand, a bathroom mat also significantly increases the comfort factor.

Bathroom mats: the right size

The first criterion when buying a bath mat is the question of the right size. This depends on the one hand on the size of the bathroom and on the other hand on the location and location. In this way, shower rugs with the common size of 50 x 70 cm are usually best before a bath or shower (2). If you want to place your bath mat in front of the sink, make sure that its size corresponds to the size of the sink / vanity and that it is in no case longer (3/4). Placed under a hanging toilet, a 65 x 65 cm square mat is the perfect size (1).

Example 1: In a bathroom that is almost square, more than one bathroom mat can also be placed if there is enough space between them to allow them to appear individually. A play of materials or colors can also be exciting and emphasize the individual look.

Example 2: In a narrow bathroom, it is advisable to lay down only a bathroom rug that emphasizes the direction of the walk and is placed in the most used place. A shower mat is only added when necessary.

2. Material properties of bathroom mats

If the right size is determined, the question may be what material it may be. Each has its own individual advantages:

  • A bath mat made of wood particularly robust and resistant, looks classy and brings warmth to the bathroom due to its naturalness. It also ensures a gentle foot massage. A wooden bath mat is also very suitable for underfloor heating.
  • Bath runners made of synthetic fibers/polyester have the great advantage that they dry particularly quickly and can cope well with residual moisture. At the same time, they are hard-wearing and very dimensionally stable. A synthetic fiber bath mat feels soft and fluffy. When washing, however, you have to keep in mind that many synthetic fibers cannot withstand such high temperatures.
  • A bath mat made of cotton is very tear-resistant as a natural material and absorbs moisture well. Make sure to dry them well so that mold stains cannot develop.
  • A bath mat made of mixed fabric has the advantages of the two materials mentioned above, which makes it even more robust. Care should be based on which material predominates in the mixture.

Regardless of the material of a textile bathroom mat, you also have the choice between extra easy-care flat weaving and cozy deep pile.

3. How to properly care for your designer bathroom rug

Always pay attention to the washing instructions for your bath mat: smaller models can be easily washed in the washing machine. The majority, especially the cotton models, can easily withstand temperatures up to 60 degrees. Use mild or color detergent and wash the bath mat separately from other textiles. Many are also suitable for tumble drying. However, you should be careful with mats with a back coating. Protect the non-slip backs by laying the bath mat flat on a drying rack to dry. A wooden bath mat is particularly easy to care for: just wipe it with a damp cloth. You can also see the care instructions from us on the respective product page under "Product properties" before purchasing.

4. Conclusion - you should when buying designer bathroom mats note

  • A bathroom rug should not be missing in any bathroom, as it not only ensures cosiness, but also prevents it from slipping.
  • You can find the right size of your bath mat depending on the size of the bathroom and the location: While shower rugs with the common size of 50 x 70 cm usually fit best in front of the bath or shower, a wash rag should never be longer than the wash basin itself. Square bath rugs in front of the toilet are ideal.
  • Common materials for bath mats are sturdy and natural wood, quick-drying and hard-wearing polyester, tear-resistant cotton and versatile blended fabrics.
  • Always note the wash label when caring for the product. Most models can even be washed at 60 degrees and tumble dried. You should be particularly careful with bath mats with a back coating.
