Best Shower mat

Hi! We are searching for a good, durable product for the wet shower/bath floor. With the possibility of us using our shower much more, we’re looking for a comfortable mat, thick enough to stand on, while allowing the water to drain through the mat.

Any suggestions for a comfy one, preferably mold-resistant?

TIA.

I have used these bamboo wood platforms in all my Escapes. Raised off the floor, always dry and clean, keeps it nice....

This is what I used: https://www.amazon.ca/dalles-caoutch...3659803&sr=8-6

Easy to cut to the perfect shape, and easy to roll out of the way to access the drain

I use a battery operated fan to help dry bathroom out after using shower. My fan is made by Rigid from Home Depot. I have many batteries from other tool purchases.

The teak or bamboo mats look very nice. We have a teak shower stool in our home shower, and it’s held up very well. No mold issues at all. OK thanks for the advice!
And I appreciate the links as well.

Did you have to cut it?


We have a wheel well that will require modifying the platform.

I did not cut the one in the E21 but there is a 2" gap. In my E19 I did cut one to join 2 smaller mats. So you decide, the floor in the E21 is bigger so the mat is larger.

I am looking to get one of the bamboo shower mats for our Escape 5.0 but cannot find the dimensions of what size would fit. Reading your comment about wheel well, I am wondering what you might recommend?

Thanks a lot for sharing the right link! Really beautiful work on your part there...

We have no such skills, and do not own anything more complicated than a screwdriver. But it gives us an idea - and we might be able to commission someone to build what you shared for us. It will have to wait as we will only get the Escape 5 at the beginning of June. So, I am on the buying phase to have things to furnish it with - hence the question. Anything custom will need to wait until we have it.

Many thanks!
