Why Choose a Teak Shower Mat Over Rubber or Cloth
Cloth and rubber materials have been the conventional materials from which shower mats are made. Another alternative has been introduced into the market, and it is the teak shower mat. This is a much better alternative because the look of the material can immediately add a beautiful visual appearance to any bathroom. The subtle tones of the wood will blend easily many different decors, and the beauty of the hardwood lends a luxurious aspect to any room.
This hardwood is popular around the world, but it is the Asian countries that are typically associated with influencing its use in the household. These countries commonly use the wood in construction of building and furniture. Should the interior design of your home be in an Asian design, then your use of teak in your home would be quite appropriate, and it would be an excellent option to use a teak mat in the bathroom.
Several properties in the hardwood make it an exceptional choice to use in a bathroom.
The various properties of the wood include natural oils and also silica which make it appropriately used in exposed applications. This hardwood is termite, pest and water resistant. The wood is also resistant to wood mold development and rotting. Because of these properties, the wood is used for making flooring and outdoor furniture, and is also an excellent choice for mats for the bathroom.
The denseness and decay resistance property renders it very appropriate to use as flooring, and it could possibly last for a long time. Because of this, the cost is greater for this type of material as compared to the rubber or cloth bathroom mats, but the value in the hardwood more that justifies the cost.
The tight, dense nature of the wood gives it a very smooth to the touch feeling. The rubber or cloth alternative materials do not have that advantage.
