Bathrooms and showers are not places for wall-to-wall carpeting, but a good-sized bath mat is essential for these spaces!
Sure, bath mats may seem like a piece of fabric to put your wet feet on but they’re much more than that. They can change the look and feel of your bathroom. They can also keep you safe.
The biggest benefit to having a bath mat is that it prevent slips and falls. Not every shower will be that slippery, but there’s always the possibility of an accident.
A good bath mat will not only give your feet some grip, but it will also make you feel at ease knowing that you’re safe.
Do you need a good looking, plush bath mat for your bathroom? Why buy from the store when you can make your own rug using old towels!
It’s easy, money saving and a great idea for making good use of your old and ugly towels – even the ones with little holes and tears in them!
Once you get into the rhythm of this project, you’ll find that it’s a really enjoyable activity to do. And the next thing you know, you’re done with your DIY project and looking for the next!
