A bath mat is key to protecting your toes against the cold floor when you step out of the shower and preventing slips and water damage from splashes and drips. It’s also the cherry on top of your bathroom’s decor. Because it serves both these essential functions, there’s definitely something to be said for taking your time and finding just the right bath mat for your space. Whether your style is classic and understated or bold and quirky, there are plenty of stylish bath rugs you’re sure to love.
Here are some of the best bath mats to add to your bathroom.
Kassatex Athens Bath Rugs
This subtle rug is sure to look amazing in any bathroom. The Kassatex Athens Rug is 21 x 34 inches, and it features an understated looped design with a simple border around the edge for a sophisticated appearance. The rug is crafted in Portugal using 100 percent cotton, and there are six simple colors to choose from, including white, tan, black, blue, and yellow.
The Athens Bath Rug is truly a classic choice for your bathroom, but its textured surface gives it a modern update. These rugs have a wonderful weight, and the floor covering is machine-washable for easy maintenance.
West Elm Organic Tassel Stripe Bath Mat
Infuse a little bit of boho flair into your bathroom with the Organic Tassel Stripe Bath Mat. This stunning piece is handwoven in India using 100 percent organic cotton, and it’s available in several colorways, including both neutrals and subtle shades of blue and yellow.
This boho-style mat measures 20 x 34 inches, and a few select colors are also available in a 27 x 47 inch form, which can be used as more of a runner or along a long bath tub. The cotton construction is the perfect balance of soft and absorbent, and the rug’s teeny tassels are sure to put a smile on your face.
Morrow Palomino Bath Mat
The Palomino Bath Mat just looks like a rug you want to sink your toes into. It has a hand tufted construction made from 100 percent cotton, and the camel-colored background is accented with geometric rings in a natural off-white hue.
The Palomino rug comes in two sizes—standard, which is 21 x 34 inches, and double, which is more of a runner at 21 x 60 inches—and its earthy color scheme would look amazing in a plant-filled space.
Society6 Mid-Century Modern Sun & Rainbow Bath Mat
Society6 puts real artists’ work on all types of home goods, and that includes bath mats! One stand-out option is the Mid-Century Modern Sun & Rainbow Bath Mat, which features a simple geometric design with a golden sun in one corner and a black “rainbow” on the opposite edge, both on an off-white background.
This bath mat is available in two sizes—17 x 24 inches and 21 x 34 inches—and it features a squishy memory foam surface covered in a soft microfiber fabric. A skid-proof backing keeps the rug in place on your floor, and the whole thing can be washed in the machine. If you like the pattern, you can get towels and shower curtains from the same artist in similar, but not perfectly matching, designs.
Coyuchi Cloud Loom Organic Bath Mat
You’ll feel like you’re stepping onto a fluffy cloud when the Cloud Loom Organic Bath Mat is on your floor. This luxurious bath mat is crafted from 100 percent organic cotton grown in Turkey, and it has extra long loops for an unbelievably soft and absorbent feel.
This simple bath mat comes in subtle six colors, and it measures 19 x 32 inches. The linen has a simple, neat self-hem around the edges to prevent fraying, and while it can be machine washed and dried, the brand recommends air-drying when possible to keep the mat fresh and conserve electricity.
Anthropologie Riviera Bath Mat
This extra-large bath mat will make you feel like royalty thanks to its ornate design. The Riviera Bath Mat comes in both blue and cream shades, both of which feature an intricate pattern that’s reminiscence of Victorian-era design. It’s almost like you’re starring in Bridgerton.
The Riviera Bath Mat is 55 inches long, so it’s nearly double the size of a standard bath mat, and it’s handmade from cotton for maximum absorbency. And of course, the rug can be machine washed if it ever gets dirty (which it surely will since, you know, it’s being walked on).
Brooklinen Bath Mat
Brooklinen is known for its high-end linens, and if you love Brooklinen towels, the matching bath mat is a must-have purchase. The floor covering has a simple rectangular design featuring a piping detail around the edges, but what sets it apart from the rest is its substantial weight and extra-thick feel, which feels like a dream when you step out of the tub.
The Brooklinen Bath Mat comes in small (20 x 31 inches) and large (27 x 45 inches) sizes, as well as several classic colors. The fabric is made from 100 percent Turkish cotton, which is known for being extra soft and absorbent, but the only downside is there’s no non-skid backing, so it may move around your floor a bit.
Martha Stewart Collection Bubble Bath Rug
The Martha Stewart Collection Bubble Bath Rug will add a soft, feminine touch to your bathroom. The 20 x 30 inch rug comes in a few subtle color schemes, including pink and green, and the cotton material is a welcoming spot to land after a warm shower. These rugs feature a white background with lines of polka dots in a variety of colors, and the non-skid backing provides stability on slippery floors.
Frontgate Resort Skid-Resistant Bath Rug
If you’re looking for color options in your rug, you’ll love the Frontgate Resort Bath Rug, which is available in just about every color imaginable. The soft mat comes in more than 20 shades, including both neutrals and more vibrant hues, and there are also four sizes to choose from, ensuring you get the perfect fit for your bathroom.
The Resort Bath Rug is made from 100 percent long-staple cotton, and the plush material is close to 2 inches thick, so it’s squishy and soft when you step out of your shower or bath. The rugs have a decorative band around the edge, and the back is lined with latex to ensure the mat stays in place.
The Citizenry Hinoki Wood Bath Mat
Create a relaxing spa-like vibe in your bathroom—and avoid having to machine wash a bath mat—with the Hinoki Wood Bath Mat. This slatted bath mat, which comes in two sizes, is handcrafted in Japan using hinoki cypress wood, and the material is carefully selected to ensure there are no knots or imperfections.
Despite being made from wood, this bath mat will feel soft and smooth under your feet, and it actually releases a calming scent when it gets wet. The wood has a light natural hue that will slightly darken over time, and the mat gets top marks from buyers who say it’s beautifully made and does a great job absorbing water.
