7 Bath Mat Ideas to Make Your Bathroom Feel More Like a Spa

Selecting the right bathroom mats is a crucial part of designing your bathroom. They are one of the main focal point in the room so people will be drawn to them.

 

When it comes to the average bath mat, people often go for something soft and made of fabric. And it makes sense, since its overall purpose is to soak up the leftover wetness from your feet after stepping out of the tub or shower. But if you’re anything like me, you’re not exactly a big fan of keeping a soggy piece of fabric on thebathroom floor. Here are a few inspirational alternatives that combine simplistic style with modern spa-like serenity.

Rubber Shower Mats: The Bathtub Method

Rubber shower mats can be cleaned in multiple ways, but one of the most convenient methods is by using your bathtub:

  • Lift up your rubber shower mat so that it no longer adheres to the floor via the suction cups. Lay it at the bottom of the tub.
  • Then, fill your bathtub with warm water.
  • Put on gloves and add two cups of chlorine bleach to the bathwater.
  • Scrub your bathmat with a clean bristly brush.
