Which material is best for a bathroom rug

A bathroom mat can become a real breeding ground for bacteria if it is not cleaned regularly. Humidity creates an ideal environment for mold growth, so the mat should be replaced from time to time.

When choosing a rug, you should pay attention to its breathability and moisture resistance. The Room to Do publication provided more information.

Bathroom tiles have been around for decades, embodying style and practicality. They are easy to maintain: It is enough to carry out wet cleaning periodically. However, there are also disadvantages - a slippery surface. In addition, stone and ceramics are cold materials, and it is not very pleasant to stand on them with bare feet. Therefore, rugs are not just interior decoration.

First of all, experts advise paying attention to the material from which the rug is made.

It can be:

  • a cotton rug;
  • a bamboo rug;
  • a PVC rug;
  • an acrylic carpet.
What rug should be in the bathroom: how to choose

Rubber is traditionally used as a base for mats. Cotton mats have a soft pile and absorb moisture well.

Bamboo is quite durable and will last longer than cotton. In addition, it has antibacterial properties.

Models that contain PVC foam are easy to clean and have absorbent properties.

Acrylic mats are characterized by good durability. They are thermoplastic and resistant to moisture.

To summarize, there are five main characteristics you should pay attention to when choosing a mat:

  1. High moisture resistance - the mat should not accumulate too much moisture.
  2. Good air permeability - this is necessary to prevent mold and other fungal bacteria from growing between the piles.
  3. Durability - the mat should be resistant to temperature changes.
  4. Easy to care for.
  5. Design features that match the bathroom interior.

By the way, there are a few simple ways to get rid of musty towels and rugs in the bathroom. Read the article to find out at what temperatures these items should be washed and why vinegar is recommended.
