A bathroom carpet does make a bathroom feel warm and inviting to the people. Carpets are ideal for use in a bathrooms. There are several pros when using carpet in a bathroom. Warmth must rate as number one in terms of obvious pros for a bathroom carpet. After all it’s bad enough to get out of bed and have to trundle through to the bathroom over a cold floor (although you could give slippers a try); but to have a lovely hot, steamy bath and then get out onto a cold floor is another story. Just be aware that some bathroom carpets are warmer than others, particularly shaggy rags and those with a nice thick pile. Another pro is that a carpet specially made for the bathroom will prevent you from slipping on what can quickly become a slippery floor underfoot – provided, of course it has a non-slip backing.
Other pros are that a carpet intended for a bathroom will also stay odorless even if wet, and it will therefore protect you against bad smalls that might emanate from a carpet not intended for use in a damp environment. It should also protect you against bacteria (which can easily make you sick) that forms so easily in a damp, warm environment. Of course if you don’t have a bathroom carpet, all you need to do is mop the tiles and keep them clean. Carpets or no carpets, if you don’t mop up and maintain a certain dryness, you’re likely to get the same smells and mold (which often couples up with bacteria) forming in corners and in any crevices.
