To bring a touch of the spa into your home, wooden bath mats are an elegant design element to incorporate into your bathroom. The best wooden bath mats will be the right size for your space and are made of durable materials like teak or bamboo. Not only do they look chic, but they dry quickly without the risk of growing mildew.

If you’re unsure about which option to go with, here’s what you need to know. Teak is a heavier wood that’s coveted for its naturally water-resistant oils, making it a long-lasting option that also has a rich color. While technically a grass, bamboo is a popular wood-like material that’s typically lighter than teak in color and in weight, and it often will come with a water-resistant finish to keep it looking great. Regardless of the type of wood you choose, your bath mat will need drainage — vertical, horizontal, or patterned slats will allow water to pass through and give the mat some extra visual interest. And if you’re looking for an option you can store out of sight when it’s not in use, consider a bath mat that can roll or fold up.

Equipped with nonslip feet, most of these stylish bath mats are also suitable to use as a shower mat, especially the teak ones that will naturally stand up better to water. And if you have an outdoor shower, all the better, as all of these mats will be equally useful (and elegant) outside. Scroll on for the best wooden bath mats to instantly take your bathroom’s style to the next level.
