There is a larger topic of the best material for shower where I picked different materials and explained them.
For me, that feeling of stepping over a wood mat when you are in the bathroom feels amazing and it’s unbeatable with plastic or any other material (that I know of).

In the shower, you know that there will be a lot of moisture and you may assume that wood isn’t going to last long in there, but the teak wood is naturally resistant and it is well suited for humid areas.
In case you want to continue reading, I suggest you also take a look at the bamboo shower bench which is another great alternative to the teak wood.
