Q. How does a bath rug differ from a tub/bath mat?
A. A tub mat or bath mat is usually an extension of a towel program, and used specifically right outside the tub to absorb water following a shower or bath.
A bath rug, however, serves multiple purposes. From a design standpoint, a bath rug can make a significant difference in the look of your bathroom. It can complement the overall color scheme of the bathroom or coordinate with the bath towels.
Available in various colors, textures and sizes, you have the option of changing out the bath rug when you need a new look.
Functionally, a bath rug, like a tub mat, helps absorb water from your body when you are stepping out of the shower or bath—it keeps excess water off the floor and prevents slipping on wet tiles. A 100% cotton bath rug is the best alternative, as cotton absorbs many times its weight in water and dries fast.
A bath rug is not solely limited to tub-side. It can also be used in front of the sink, adding extra comfort, support and warmth, especially on those chilly mornings.

I do not know who you might be but certainly you

Thank you for your interest.
So a bath rug shouldn’t be kept on the bathroom floor? It should be put up after using the shower?
Depending on the bath rug, if the floor gets wet, then yes the rug should be hung up.

What material would be the best while buying bathroom rugs? Thank you for writing.
Cotton and bamboo are both highly absorbent fibers that make excellent bath rugs. If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to call 800.877.4667.
