Bath Mat - Rubber Bath Tub Mats
You may think that your stylish, luxurious and coordinating bath mats or tub mats look fabulous in your bathroom. That they may. But did you know that they also protect you from one of the most common home accidents according to leading insurance companies?
Bath mats prevent one of the most common home accidents - slipping and falling when getting out of the tub or shower. It is such a small expenditure to ensure the safety of yourself and your family. On the lighter side, they are quite fashionable. They are a great decorative element in a space that has limited decorating potential - your bathroom.
Today you have so much to choose from. Stores readily carry many different colors , textures and materials. Department stores and bed & bath stores carry everything from fuzzy faux fur to long, shaggy cotton terry to teak. You are sure to find a bath mat to compliment any décor and fit any budget.
Just have fun when selecting your bath mats. There are no hard and fast rules. You can choose a colorful one that adds a little whimsy to your bathroom, or go with a luxurious one that coordinates with your towels. The sky's the limit when it comes to shopping for tub mats.
There are only two things you need to be mindful of. First make sure that your bath mat has a non skid rubber backing. If it doesn't, it won't be effective, and could contribute to a fall. The other is the size. Look at your bathroom and decide what size will work best. If you have a small bathroom, one small bath mat should do it. If you have a large bathroom, you may need a larger bath mat or a set of them. A large mat is also a clever and stylish way of covering up an old, damaged floor.
So, take a little time to look at your bath mat today. If it is old, faded and fraying, treat yourself to a new one. If you are using a bath towel as your bath mat, repent today and change your ways. You will find bath mats everywhere, from department stores to discount stores.
