Hide the Mat
Your bath mat adds color to the room, but it can also section off the floor, so you're acutely aware of the mat-covered and bare-tile areas. Storing the bath mat when you're not taking a shower is a good way to clear up the floor space, Santos says. If you have a bathtub, you can hang the bath mat off its edge, hiding it behind the shower curtain.
