Bath rugs?
March 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Are bath rugs considered out of style or is it okay to use a large rug in the middle of my bathroom? My floors are cold and would be wet if I had nothing to stand on when I exit the shower.
Please help.

I occassionally use them, but not the old fashioned rubber backs that come with the toilet rug...I find a nicer, attractive rug...U could always use a bathmat and put it away if u don't like the looks of a rug.

Everyday comfort is important. I always have a bathmat. One of mine is reversible, shag on one side and smooth on the other. I agree with Jayme; no rubber backs.

Does a normal rug not get ruined in a bathroom?

Love them. However, I have cheated for design effect by placing a bamboo or wooden mat on the floor outside the shower (but then I added another towelling rug underneath so it would absorb the moisture).

I get fluffy cotton ones usually and place a towel over them to step on, remove towel to dry after.

I use a fluffy 100% cotton bath mat. I stand on it while I dry off with a towel. Then I put the bath mat over the edge of the tub, over the shower curtain rod, or I drape it across the portable shower seat to dry.

Thank you everyone! This is my first time asking for help using a format like this and I never expected to get any responses. Thank you for sharing.

shellyuk We're not talking about permanent carpet which would get just icky. These are cotton mats that can be thrown in the washer and dryer..

I'm with eztia. My bath mat gets placed over the edge of the tub when I'm done with it. My 'outer' shower curtain hides it, but allows it to dry thoroughly. It stays much cleaner this way.
