Make A Stone Bath Mat

savvyhousekeeping how to make your own stone bath mat
We are still working on our bathroom remodel, which has a bit of a “zen” feel to it, so I was intrigued with this how-to on making your own stone bath mat from Natural Home.
To make the mat, first you build a simple wooden frame, put a wire mesh across the bottom, and fill it with stones. It’s like having a river bed in your bathroom.
I’m not sure how practical this is, but it looks cool–especially if you are into collecting pretty rocks.

  1. It’s looks pretty, but no practicality.
    Seems to me that as the stones get wet-when you step on it getting out of the shower or tub-your floor underneath will get wet too, since there is only screen under the stones. It would look fabulous in a guest bathroom, that doesn’t get used all that often for bathing or showering. It definitely has the wow-factor, looks wise.
    Of course, in my house, the stone would constantly go missing, between the Kid and cats who would see them as toys. 🙂

  2. I think the water from your feet would still end up on the floor and that it would be slippery. Plus you can’t easily wash it.

  3. I think you guys are right about this. It’s just not practical. It looks cool though.
    I wonder if coating the rocks in something to keep them in place would be worth experimenting with …

  4. My kids would definitely find this exciting. And I would be finding rocks in place I never thought existed… Maybe you could lay a microfiber towel under and and change it out, though. Looks fun, though.
