“ Brand: ASDA / Type: Bath mat „
I bought this bath mat in grey to go with my bathroom tile border and also my towels, after spotting it whilst looking for towels. I had bought another grey bath mat from elsewhere but found it lost its colour quickly and so decided to buy one of these. Costing around £4 it was a good / fair price and it makes a nice addition to my ensuite. It has kept its colour and looks despite having had for several months and frequent washes. The towels and mats are part of quite a reasonable sized range in Asda (my local one is a decent size) and all I thought represented good value for money. It definitely soaks up those post shower drips although maybe too well, as takes ages to dry on the line due to the density / coarseness of the mat. It feels good underfoot and despite being reversible it isn't slippy at all. It does look good both sides, although does have a tiny white tag on one side. I would recommend these mats as a good price but reasonable quality product. I would recommend doing as I have, and buying 2 though so whilst one is being washed and dried another is in use, and at that price, why not.
I bought this mat from Asda about a year ago. It is cream in colour, they had it in a few other colours but I wanted one which was neutral. Although it isn't the best bath mat in the world it is fine in that it does what it's supposed to do. It is reversible. On one side it's quite fluffy and on the other it's a little less so. I tend to have it on the fluffiest side up as I think it looks nicest and more 'luxurious'. Although it's not very deep pile so it doesn't really look all that luxurious really! It is a very thin mat, not as deep as I would really like it but in a way this is a good thing as it's not too fluffy. It easily rises up off the carpet though and the slightest little flick of it will have it curled up at the edges. I find after a few days of it being in position, once people have stepped onto it a few times it begins to move across the floor! So do be careful of this. I like the feel of it on my feet when I step out of the bath, it is nice and soft and the colour is just fine. It washes well, it has been washed several times to keep it fresh and clean and it always comes out well but does take quite a while to dry so if you haven't got a tumble dryer do be careful! All in all this is an average bath mat which works fine but may not be the best in terms of hos good quality it is really.
The house I live in now was my old childhood house, I moved out with my now husband years ago and then my parents decided to build a house in the garden and rent us the house so I moved back again. One thing I have hated from being a child is the bathroom floor, my Dad had the bathroom all done out but the floor remains the same and hate it. The floor is like hard lino and is such a mix of colours it always looks dirty to me and it gets really slippy when it's wet so I decided to buy a bath mat for the floor. The bath mat came from Asda and it cost £4, I only bought this one a couple of months ago when the one we had was looking a little shabby and thin, I ordered off their online site although our Asda store has a good range of homeware items I know some smaller stores don't. The mat is available in a great range of colours from bright pink and red to more muted brown and cream and just about every other colour in-between, I was quite surprised just how many colours were on offer but I went for the brown one so that it would match the bathroom but wasn't so light that it would always look dirty. The mat is 78 x 48cms so is a pretty decent size and sits nicely in our bathroom as we cannot have one which is too big as the bathtub is circular on one end which takes up extra space in the bathroom. The mat is quite flat but feels soft underfoot, it absorbs the moisture when you step out of the bath or shower well and it's great for making sure you don't slip and it also doesn't slip against the bathroom floor which is what I need. I have washed this mat once or twice since having it and it has gone into a 60 degree wash with my towels and has come out fine with no shrinkage and no colour running. I think this mat is great value and at that price you can buy a second one to have a spare whilst the first one gets washed. It makes my bathroom a safer place and with 2 young children in the house that is very important, I give this 5 out of 5 as I can't find fault with it at all.
When we put down the deposit on our first home together I had already had my colour scheme planned for well over a year! Luckily, the apartment we live in was all magnolia and it has cream carpets throughout and black slate floors in the kitchen and bathroom so I had a blank canvas! I had already decided the bathroom would be red. Well, I wanted the whole thing red but I was told no :-( so its a sort of pale grey colour with red accessories and pictures etc. The only problem was, finding red bath mats and towels turned out the be a difficult task. Yes, everywhere stocked burgandy and some had bright red but I only managed to find two shops that sold bath sheets in a bright red. Only one of these also sold bath mats so Asda it was! Of course, since then I have seen red towels everywhere. I bought this bath mat in one of the special Asda Living stores that you sometimes see on large retail parks. It was a bargain price of just £4.50 so I picked one up immediately, like most people we didnt have a great deal of spare cash when moving in together so I didnt really mind if it didnt do the job as well as it could. The mat is around a metre long and about 60cm tall. They were available in a number of colours and there were a nice variety of brighter colours too which are often hard to find. I think pedestal mats were available too but I didnt want one of these so I cant really remember. Of course, the point of a bath mat is when you have a bath or shower. You step onto the mat to a) avoid slipping over on a wet tiled floor b) keep the floor dry by catching any drips and moisture from the bottom of your feet etc. The bath mat isnt overly sort of fluffy, although the pile is quite long it seems to stay quite flat. It is very soft and absorbs really well, after standing on the mat for a few seconds I then usually walk to my bedroom and none of the hallway or bedroom carpet gets wet and I dont end up with drips on the bathroom floor either. As our bathroom floor is tiled and there is no natural light in there it can get quite cold so I usually leave the mat on the floor even when its not being used. As a result of this it does seem to collect bits of dust etc. I hoover the mat and it usually comes up pretty well, if you put some effort in it will come up nicely and regain some fluffiness. I have washed the mat 3 or 4 times, I usually wash it on a 40 or 50 with my towels and it comes out very well each time and looks brand new again, regaining much more fluffiness! I have had this mat around 14 months now and I am very pleased with its performance. It absorbs well, it is nice and soft and it keeps its colour. When I change my colour scheme I will definitely be buying my new bathroom towels and bath mat from Asda.
