Complete your spa bathroom with a wooden shower mat





A little while ago we had this Platta flooring for the bathroom. So hey, why not use it as a shower mat to complete the spa look? That’s what Eleazar did.

He’s been having it for a few months now and it seems to be holding up. Before you try this you should be aware that the Platta deck has tannic acid which may leak out and stain the floor and grouting.

    I actually have a similar tiles in my bathroom (didn’t get them at IKEA). They were leftovers from my balcony project.

    I ended up making a 3×6 tile “rug”. The wood floor feels greats on your feet. The only issue is that they are elevated, so they need to be flush near any counter, toilet etc.. Or your feet won’t be completely on them and that makes it a bit awkward.

    Otherwise, they are really easy to clean (rinse them in the tub) and hide dirt between the cracks really well between cleanings.

    The hacks that u show this time is quite useful to me, can apply it to my house too.

    Okay, so what do you do about the (potential for) tannic acid stains?

  4. Anonymous says:

    You could probably create some sort of barrier between the tiles and the floor with plastic lining (i know ikea has some for laying down wood floors in high-moisture areas). And it would be much easier to clean if you only have to pick up the two tiles to rinse it of, as opposed to a whole floor.

  5. Chris Mora says:

    The tiles I have (got them at Yardiac.com) do not leave any stains.

    I had to add felt to the bottom as mine were scratching the tile.

    I searched for “Platta” on Ikea’s website and nothing came up. Any suggestions?

  10. Derek says:

    “Platta” is a summer product at Ikea. It’s now back in the stores.

    Great idea for using them as bathmats, BTW.

    Can these tiles be put directly on the ground?
