Don’t overlook the humble bath mat. Liken it to a an accessory just as you would a rug in the living room, or a runner in the hall. Bath mats can add colour, texture, and even a little luxury to your bathroom. With trends for grey’s and many bathrooms not having windows, bath mats can add a great splash of much needed colour.
In terms of materials, go for super absorbent pure cotton weaves, and ideally have a mat than can be tumble dried, so you retain that lovely fluffy feel. You may also need anti slip backing depending on your flooring.
