What Are Bath & Shower Mats, Cushions & Pillows?

Our range of mats for the bathroom are designed to provide a steady footing and give you total confidence and security when you step into, or out of a bath, or shower. Bath cushions are cushions which sit in the base, or on the side of the bathtub, providing comfort whilst bathing, and bath pillows are waterproof pillows designed to provide a soft and comfortable place to put your head when enjoying a relaxing soak.

What Is The Benefit Of A Bath Or Shower Mat?

Bath and shower mats help keep your bathing and showering experiences safe. When you step into, or out of a bath, or shower, you want to be sure of a safe footing, and our vast range of bath and shower mats ensure that you won’t slip. Often, the base of a bathtub or a shower cubicle is smooth and shiny and, when wet, can be very slippery underfoot. Bath and shower mats sit on this surface and provide a textured, less slippery surface providing safety whilst showering or bathing, as well as when you get into and out of the bath or shower.

Mats designed specifically for use in the bath or shower are suitable for most people and are particularly good for children and older adults who may be slightly unsteady on their feet. They provide a secure surface to stand, or sit on.

Is There Anything Specific To Look Out For?

Firstly, consider the size of the bath or shower you wish to place the mat in. There’s a wide choice of sizes and it’s important that the mat fits correctly. If it is too big, it could cause a trip hazard, so do make sure it fits.

Non slip mats for the shower come in rectangular, square and quadrant (for a corner shower) shapes. The majority of bath mats and shower mats have suckers on the underside. These suckers stick to the base of the bathtub or shower cubicle and help to ensure that the mat does not move. However, the mat is still easy to remove for cleaning.

The majority of non-slip mats designed for the bathroom are made from rubber and some are slightly padded to provide a comfortable, cushioned base underfoot. Our range even includes a bath mat with an integral pillow for the ultimate in comfort when bathing and a couple, within our range, even include an anti-microbial coating which is anti-mildew and helps to prevent bacterial and fungal growth, with many being able to be machine washed at 40 degrees.

As an alternative to an actual mat, you may choose anti slip strips which are stuck to the bath permanently. These are available as either strips or circles. To adhere correctly to a bath or shower base, the surface must be totally clean and dry. These anti slip adhesive shapes provide a good, economical and permanent solution.

What Exactly Is A Bath Cushion?

Bath cushions usually secure to the bath with simple suction cups, which prevent this useful mobility aid from floating away whilst in use. They can be easily removed when cleaning the bathtub and when drying the cushion. In order to provide the cushioning support in the bath, a bath cushion is either padded (for example, sealed foam) or inflatable.

We provide a range of bath cushions which offer support to the bottom, neck/head and back.

All our cushions designed for use in the bath are easy to install and use and simple to remove when cleaning the bath. Our range includes an inflatable cushion, too, which is handy, as you can inflate it to the level you require for your own comfort whilst bathing.

Think about the area you really want to support. Is it the bottom, the back, the neck, or the head?
