I would only recommend these to a friend if you're not to decorate your bathroom, but want COMFY bath mats. I ordered slate and it is true to color. These are like the comfiest mats I've ever laid my feet on, but they're far from pretty. I'm okay with that though! :)
I had looked for foam bath mats locally and found you either pay a lot or you pay less for poor quality. I ordered two White foam bath mat from Sleep Innovations through Overstock. I'm thrilled with the color (a nice clean white, goes well with my white tiles), the size (which is an inch or two smaller than the expensive mats locally; I prefer this slightly smaller mat so that it centers nicely in front of the vanity) and the price. I would absolutely order this product again.
Love the feeling of stepping out the shower onto these. They haven't been soaking wet yet, but the water that has been on them does not show when dry. They aren't particularly large so good for a small bathroom, but you might want the longer ones if your bathroom is medium sized or larger.
This is wonderfully comfy and plush bath mats! I bought a mat that matches the shower curtain for exiting the bath, but wanted one for the sink. This mat is so comfy everyone will do their two full minutes of teeth brushing! For now, the second is in the kitchen, but the color is too light to stay there. Maybe I'll sneak it in front of my closet!
I was surprised that, of the many reviews I read here, there had been only one poor review of this product (for a bad smell) because even as I opened the outer packaging the odor hit me. After opening the plastic bags in which the rugs were, it of course was worse. Even keeping the rugs outside all afternoon did nothing to dispel the smell. I decided not to attempt laundering them but instead went on Chat and got excellent help in that I am going to be able to return these at no cost for a full refund. It's a shame because they are very soft underfoot and are a perfect color and size for my bathroom.
I haven't had these long enough to have to wash them, so I don't know how they will hold up. I do know that they are comfortable for stepping on when the tile is cold, and when the floor feels really hard beneath one's feet. I had suffered with cold, cold feet with thinner mats, also sometimes my feet are extra sensitive and being barefoot is painful on the tile. These mats take care of both problems.
Purchased the slate color to use in front of our basement patio door. Needed something absorbent when coming in from using the hot tub ( on patio). Perfect size - almost the width of the patio door. I can use the soft bristle brush of the central vacuum to clean it. Bonus it's cushiony as the flooring is deep, dark hues of slate tile. Works better than a standard rug.
