7 Wooden Bath Mats That’ll Instantly Upgrade Your Space
If there’s any place in your home you want to make sure is soothing, it’s your bathroom. One unexpected (yet easy) way to add zen vibes to your space is with a wooden bath mat, like the ones you’d find at a spa. While it’s true a wooden bath mat won’t give you that same plush feeling underfoot like a softer textile would, its warm, woodsy vibe instantly creates a welcoming feel. Plus, they’re typically easier to keep clean, which never hurts.
Another positive of wooden mats: Their modern, architectural feel looks good in just about any space. Place one in a bold, bright bathroom for a natural touch, or let a wooden mat enhance the minimalist vibes in your calming, simple space. Ready to turn your bathroom into an at-home spa? See our picks below for the best wooden bath mats on the market right now.
Bamboo Bath Mat
Simple and sleek, this small, multi-toned mat works perfectly in tight spaces. Its slats are fairly open, and it sits a couple inches off the floor, so you could even use it as a covering over your regular bath mat. Of course, it’s just as functional and stylish on its own.

Hinoki Wood Bath Mat
Each of The Citizenry’s upscale hinoki mats takes over a week to complete, as they’re handcrafted start to finish in a Fair Trade facility in Japan. That means they’re pretty near perfect—no knots to be found. That’s good enough, but it gets better: The hinoki wood, which is native to central Japan, gives off a calming scent when wet, meaning your bathroom will look and smell like a spa with minimal effort.

Belmint Bamboo Floor and Shower Mat
This medium-sized mat has a dual-panel look thanks to its foldability, which lets you easily store it should you ever need to.

Bamboo Bath Mat
For an affordable wooden mat, try this one from Terrain. Unlike others, it’s made of super-thin slats that sit side-by-side, so it lays flat on your floor like a regular mat would. It’s also quite a bit darker than the other options, which gives it a bold appearance. Plus, the mat rolls right up if you ever need to stow or move it.

Teak Bathroom Mat
This option costs quite a bit more than the others, but it’s easy to see why. Designed by Mogens Holmriis for Skagerak, it features shiny hardware and narrow slats for a clean, classy look—and those wide openings between the slats mean the wood dries quickly. Plus, this mat’s been around since 1998, and it looks just as timeless now as it did then, so rest assured this style holds up as well as the materials do.
