Gorilla Grip Original Luxury Chenille Bathroom Rug Mat
Available in 10 sizes and 36 colors, there is sure to be a Gorilla Grip bathroom floor mat for every size and style bathroom.
Their variety is great, but what puts the Gorilla Grip mats at the top of our list of the best bathroom floor mats is their combination of soft shag feel, water absorption, and price.
With a name like Gorilla Grip, these bath mats are also designed to not slide around your floor.
Another nice feature is that these mats are machine washable.
The price point on the Gorilla Grip mats is fantastic, and while you shouldn’t expect the luxury of a high-end mat, we found no problems whatsoever with the quality.
Real HomeGenerosity Reader Review
“I recently bought a 36″ x 24″ navy and ivory gorilla grip mat for in front of my tub. It has done a good job of catching any water and is pretty soft. I did already have to wash it because of trying to give my muddy dog a bath and there wasn’t an issue.”
VDOMUS Microfiber Bathroom Contour Rugs Combo
The VDOMUS Microfiber Bathroom Contour Rugs Combo is composed of a soft shaggy non-slip bath shower mat and a U-shaped toilet floor rug. The set comes in four colors:
- Dark Gray
The mats are made of thousands of plush microfiber shags which make for a soft, cozy landing spot for your feet. And don’t worry, although the shag is super comfortable, the plush chenille is highly water absorbent. Throw in an anti-skid latex backing and we’re sold.
VDOMUS Non-slip Microfiber Shag Bathroom Rugs Bath Mats Shower Rug [UPDATED]
The VDOMUS non-slip shag rug also looks good enough to be used in the kitchen and comes in three different sizes, from 32″ x 20″ to 47″ x 26″.
Bonus, it’s 100% machine washable.

“This fit the bill. I needed a single bathmat for in front of my shower. Nothing fancy but the price was right and it does a good job.”
Luxury Hotel and Spa 100% Turkish Cotton Banded Panel Bath Mat Set
Many reviewers swear by Turkish towels and for good reason. We love the Luxury Hotel and Spa 100% Turkish Cotton Banded Panel Bath Mat Set for one very important reason – they are thin yet comfortable, a perfect size to fit underneath of a swinging bathroom door.
This bathmat measures 20″ x 34″ and covers a large portion of the bathroom floor. Two mats are included and are made of 100% genuine Turkish cotton.
While we like the thinness for our guest bathroom, some reviewers have not felt the same.
Machine washable, this rug is very durable and will last for years. It comes in 15 colors.
Norcho Non-Slip Absorbent Microfiber Bathroom Soft Bath Mat
We’ve found it to be one of the best water absorbent bathmats on the market due to its 100% microfiber chenille construction. Even the wettest of feet – human or canine! – are no match for this mat’s water absorbing abilities. It is so good at absorbing water that many reviewers have begun to use it as a dog bed or in their dog’s crate.
The Norcho also features a non-skid bottom and is machine washable and very durable.
Genteele Memory Foam Bath Mat Non Slip Absorbent Super Cozy Velvet Bathroom Rug Carpet
One of the best selling memory foam bath mats, the bathroom mat by Genteele provides the ultimate in bathroom luxury. It’s so comfortable and so plush that we have actively started to look for other places in the house to put it.
As soft as a chenille microfiber rug and as durable as a Turkish cotton mat, this memory foam bath mat fits perfectly near the tub or in front of the bathroom sink (even the kitchen sink).
It is offered in a handful of sizes and colors and is a great bathroom rug for any decor.
BATHROOM FLOOR MAT FAQs
While bathroom floor mats aren’t the most technical of items, there are still bound to be a few questions that pop up when you’re shopping.
Should my bath mat match my towels?
If your bath towels are one or two different colors, choose a bathroom floor mat that matches.
If your bath towels are a variety of colors, save yourself some frustration and don’t worry about trying to match your bath mat color.
Can I use any rug in my bathroom?
Avoid placing “normal” rugs in the bathroom. Bathroom rugs are specifically designed with materials to handle the moisture of a bathroom.
Also, bathroom mats and rugs are made to be machine washable.
What is the best bathroom floor mat material?
Weigh what is most important to you: comfort or moisture absorption.
Shag bath mats feel great on your bare feet, but chenille microfiber mats will do a better job of absorbing water.
In fact, chenille microfiber is often used for drying cars. If it can dry your car, it can certainly absorb any dripping water after a shower.
What size should my bathroom floor mat be?
First, measure the area that you want covered. While you may not find an exact size match, it’s likely that the available bathroom floor mat options are close in size.
While there are certainly variations, most bathrooms work with the following mat sizes:
Outside of Shower: 21 x 34 inches
In Front of Single Vanity: 17 x 24 inches
In Front of Double Vanity: 24 x 60 inches
A SOFTER BATHROOM FLOOR
We understand that today’s sheer volume of choices for bathroom floor mats and rugs can be overwhelming.
Fortunately, the best bath mats available now are soft, comfortable, and durable.
Before purchasing though you need to decide what feels best to you.
Do you like to trim your mustache with the plush shag feel of chenille microfiber mats on your feet? Or do you like the ergonomic, mold to your feet feel of the latest memory foam mats? Or is a Turkish rug more your style?
No matter what, there is a choice for every home.
