Bath Mat Size Guide

Your bath mats serve as both a functional and decorative item in your bathroom. When you're shopping for bath mats, you'll look at a number of different characteristics to find the right ones, like color, pattern and size.

 

What Size Bath Mats Do I Need?

With a wide variety of differently sized bath mats to choose from, picking the right one may seem a little confusing. Our bath mat size guide recommends the following three tips to help you choose the best mats for your bathroom.

1. Consider the Floor Space

Before you head out to the store, measure your available floor space. When you have a better idea of the dimensions of different spots in your bathroom, you won't buy a rug that's too big or too small.

Obviously there's an issue with buying a bath mat that's too big — you might just not have enough space for it. But, buying one that's too small can also be a problem. If you have a nice open bathroom, a tiny mat in the middle of the room will look odd. If you have more space, why not get a bigger bath mat too?

Your bathroom may also be broken up into smaller areas. Drawing a small diagram for yourself and labeling the dimensions of each part of the floor can really come in handy when you're out shopping.

2. Look at Different Shapes

Bath mats come in a number of different shapes aside from your standard rectangular one. Circular, oval, half-circle and other more uniquely shaped bath mats may be a great alternative.

With different shapes comes a different amount of space the mat will need. Rectangular bath mats are so common because they're the easiest shape to work with. Since the room itself is based on a rectangular shape, this kind often works the best in the room.

The variety of shapes gives you additional options when it comes to finding the right bath mat. These extra choices may really help if you have an irregularly shaped bathroom or if the room is smaller.

3. Find the Proper Placement

Do you want one big bath mat, or do you want multiple smaller ones? How much of the overall floor space to you want to cover with the bath mat? These are a few questions to ask that will help you with the placement later on.

Deciding on the configuration of where and how you will place your bath mats will help you decide which sizes you need. If you did draw a simple mockup of your bathroom, that will be handy here, too!

Even before you head out to the store, you can look at common mat sizes and use those measurements to compare to the size of your bathroom. This can help you save time while you're shopping because you'll have a clearer idea of how many mats you need and what sizes will fit in your bathroom the best. Avoiding having to go back to the store for an exchange or return is an added bonus.
