- Bath mats soak up any water from your wet feet and make sure you don't slip on any water when you leave the shower or tub.
- Of all the bath mats we've tried, West Elm's 100% Organic Cotton Luxe Fibersoft Bath Mat is the best because it feels super soft and plush, soaks up moisture, and dries quickly.
Bath mats may seem like just another household item that you don't typically notice. But with a variety of materials, styles, and purposes available, choosing the right one can require some deliberation. Innocuous as they may seem, bath mats need to do a lot of things at once: They need to soak up or deal with moisture, self-dry before mold and bacteria can set in, and stay in one place without slipping and sliding around the bathroom - all while looking nice, smelling fresh, and staying clean.
There are some fundamentals to consider when it comes to selecting the perfect bath mat. Our top picks include microfiber, all cotton, and even wooden options to suit your design preferences. We also take into account your bathroom needs with bath mats that are quick-to-dry, extra absorbent, long-lasting, washable, and eco-friendly.
Whatever your bathroom priorities are, we've got a pick for you. We searched the web for user reviews and top-ranked selections in the bath mat category to bring you this Insider Picks guide to finding the perfect bath mat.
