Choosing a bathroom rug is a responsible task. Bathroom conditions require special functionality from this piece of furniture.

Such rugs are outwardly unusual: transparent and translucent, and due to the presence of suction cups on the reverse side, they are securely fixed. The silicone rubber from which the mat is made has a number of other useful qualities: it is hypoallergenic, resistant to electricity and does not deform even at extreme temperatures.
