What Is The Best Shower Tent Floor?

Lisa Hobbie // 2021

Sometimes one of the things that turns people off from camping is the “roughing it” aspect, specifically, the inability to keep oneself clean and hygienic. There are certainly no bath tubs or permanent showers at most rustic campsites, and this may be a deterrent for some. However, if you have a portable or , that potential camping con goes away, and the ability to shower and clean up is now a reality. This instant shower provides privacy in a portable little room that is a favorite accessory for many campers.

If you have a DIY shower tent to accompany you on your outdoor adventure or camping trip, you may be wondering what the best flooring for the tent would be. You will want to select a product that is lightweight, portable, comfortable, and slip resistant. It should also allow for excellent drainage.

Greatmats offers a variety of suitable shower flooring solutions, with the following 4 being among the best and most popular products available anywhere:
  1. Portable Outdoor Tile
  2. Perforated StayLock Tile
  3. Patio Outdoor Tile
  4. Home Sport & Play Mat
  5. Economy Foam Mats

The first three products are suitable for long term outdoor shower floors and for installs over ground surfaces, where the fourth product is great if you want padding for a short term, or over a built-in shower tent floor. All of the products are made with top notch materials and offer performance, value, and a number of features and benefits that make them among the best available anywhere.

Portable Outdoor Tile is a plastic decking product made of durable polypropylene. They can be installed on essentially any outdoor surface, from grass and gravel to sand, concrete, or pavement. The tiles feature a perforated surface offering non-slip benefits and fast drying features - making them a safe surface for your shower floor. They are even designed to minimize the growth of mold and mildew, and they are easy to transport - weighing less than 1 pound each.



Perforated StayLock Tile is a PVC product offering a non-slip surface texture and ASTM fall height rating of 20 inches. Available in bright, UV stable colors that look great, these tiles are high performing, waterproof, oil resistant, acid resistant, and designed to allow for superior drainage. They are easy to transport - weighing just over a pound, and once installed, the tiles will not separate unintentionally.

The StayLock product really is a customer favorite for outdoor shower applications. Philip, a Greatmats’ Customer, wrote in his online review, “These were used in an outdoor shower. They provide a non-slip surface and feel great when standing in the shower.”

A second customer, Patricia, wrote in her review, “We did just a small project to see if we would be happy with the product. Plan was to install as flooring on an outside shower. Went food shopping, came back, and my husband was done. Looks beautiful! Could not have been easier.”

And Doniece, another satisfied customer, wrote, “We recently repurposed a retired municipal bus as a mobile hygiene unit with two complete bathrooms to help the homeless. Greatmats’ sales associates helped us figure out what we needed, provided a super fast quote, and closed the deal all with perfect customer service.”



Patio Outdoor Tile is another great PVC shower tent flooring solution. It features a non-slip surface texture that is fast drying and it provides excellent comfort. It is lightweight and fast and easy to install with its snap together construction. It offers a safe wet space that prevents the growth of mold and mildew.



Economy Foam Mats are great if you want padding for a short term shower, or over a built-in shower tent floor. Each waterproof mat easily interlocks to other mats with their tight fitting tabs. They are shock absorbing and waterproof, and they are also lead free and latex free. They provide a soft footing in a foam product that is lighter than rubber. And with a thatch textured surface, they help reduce the risk of slipping. Since they do have a flat bottom, you’ll want to remove them after each shower to prevent water from becoming trapped underneath the mats.
