Questions To Ask Before Buying A Bath Rug

Bath rugs are often the finishing touch in bathroom decor. You may give a lot of thought to how your rug will look in your room, but there are other things you should consider before buying this bathroom essential.

Is my bathroom a high-traffic area? Most bathrooms are high-traffic areas, although guest bathrooms may see less action than others in the house. Choose a bath mat that is durable and can stand up to a lot of use. Also consider buying a rug in a darker color thatís less likely to show dirt.

Is the room used by children or the elderly? Young ones and older people are more likely to slip on a wet tile floor than other people. While many bath rugs offer a rubber non-skid backing, not all do. Double check before buying.

Is the rug easy to clean? Look for rugs that are machine washable and easy to care for. Because they get a lot of use and they are kept in an area of high humidity and are regularly wet, bath mats should be washed often. Making sure that they are "easy care" can save you a lot of work.

Will the shape and size work in my bathroom? Bath rugs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, as do bathrooms. Before you fall in love with a particular one, check the measurements of your bathroom and the configuration. A large round mat will not fit well in a narrow, rectangular bathroom.
