This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in September of 2020. Whether you're stepping out of the shower or standing in front of your vanity mirror, having a good bath mat under your feet makes the experience more enjoyable. The right collection of rugs can also enhance the look of your bathroom, keep your toes warm, and help prevent slips. But no mats are skid-proof, so always be careful using them and make sure they are placed on a dry floor. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 14, 2020:

You'll find a wide range of styles and quality when it comes to bath mats. Many are available in multiple sizes and colors, so a good way to start narrowing down your choice is to focus on the material. Plush synthetic, cotton, and memory foam are the most popular options. We've listed the best of each variety, choosing durable designs that are highly absorbent and quick-drying.

Plush rugs are usually made with nylon or microfiber, and they have a high pile that feels luxurious under your toes. Many people enjoy the tufted, knobby texture of chenille, which is what you'll find on the LuxUrux Luxury and the Yimobra Shaggy. For a traditional, carpet-style look, consider the Garland Chili Pepper Red or the Hebe Striped.

Cotton absorbs water very well and is soft to the touch, similar to a terrycloth robe - perfect for sensitive feet. Many cotton styles are reversible and evoke a towel-like design, like the Laura Ashley Crochet and the Utopia Banded.

Memory foam mats are the newest addition to the world of bathroom floor coverings. They give you a spongy cushion to step on and offer excellent absorbency. The Clara Clark Ultra Soft and the Elvoki Sea Design are two great examples of this style.

Finally, it's important to consider the slip factor of each rug, especially if you are in a home with young children or seniors. Some non-slip mats, like the Gorilla Grip Original Chenille, provide a better grip than others.

Special Honors

Lands' End Supima While it's not a set, you can always buy two of these low-profile designs. Their thick, latex undersides provide an excellent grip and stand up to multiple washes - and their natural cotton material feels like soft terry cloth.
