Bathroom Rugs Buying Guide

When you’re updating a bathroom, major purchases like vanities, sinks, faucets, and tubs are likely top of mind. But in a room where you’re most often barefoot, bathroom rugs can provide both safety and comfort, as well as contribute to your dream bath’s good looks. Here’s our advice on how to choose the best rugs for your lifestyle and budget.

Types of Bathroom Rugs

Types of Bathroom Rugs

Bathroom rugs come in almost every color and pattern imaginable, but their shapes (rectangular, oval, circular, oblong) and sizes (from as small as 21 inches to as large as 5 feet) are fairly standard. You’ll want rugs that fit well in the space -- not too small, not too large, and none that shift when you open and close a door.

Bathroom Rugs

Bathroom rugs come in rectangular, oval, circular, and oblong shapes, and they are classified by how they’re used. The most basic rug might grace the floor below a vanity or sink.

Bath Mats

A bath mat is a rug designed to be used near the shower or tub; its purpose is to soak up water that might damage a floor as well as to help bathers avoid slipping on a slick, wet surface.

Toilet Lid Covers

A toilet lid cover, which is essentially a rug that fits snugly over the lid of a toilet seat, both protects the lid from scratches and carries out the bathroom’s color scheme and decor.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Whether you’re shopping in a retail or online store, it’s hard to eyeball a rug (or a picture of one) and know that it’s a perfect fit. So before shopping, measure your bathroom’s floor space and consult the dimensions as you shop. Take our word for it: Measuring will save you time and headaches.

Construction

Rugs are constructed in two ways. The first is called the yardage method. Here, a rug is manufactured much like carpet -- on a large piece of fabric -- then cut into appropriate sizes and coated with a nonslip backing to prevent falls. The second is the tabletop method, in which fibers are sewn directly into the rug backing. If you want a longer-lasting rug, look for this type of construction.

Materials

Most rugs are made from cotton, nylon, or polyester. While cotton is comfortable and absorbent, it can shrink when washed. Nylon and polyester are more durable, making them better candidates for high-traffic bathrooms.

Weave

Deep pile feels comfy underfoot, but if your bathroom tends to stay damp, consider a lower-pile synthetic rug, which dries faster and wears better. For alternate nonslip surfaces, choose a sisal or cork rug, both made from natural materials.

Color and Washability

Light-color rugs help a small room look bigger. But they’ll need to be laundered more frequently, especially if you have pets.
