There are several different kinds of bathroom rugs that can be purchased for your bathroom and it’s important to have a basic idea of what kind of rug you’re looking for before you go to the store. For instance, are you more interested in a rug that will cover most of the floor or a smaller size that will only cover certain parts.
Because there is such a large variety of bathroom rugs available and you do not want to become overwhelmed, it’s a good idea to have already chosen a color scheme for your bathroom or be prepared to base the rest of the accessories in your room on the rug that you choose.
Since bathrooms are relatively small and simple, changing the color of a bathroom rug can make the entire space look completely different and is a cheap way to redecorate without spending a ton of money. You can change your rug color based on the seasons or your changing tastes and can even choose rug styles and colors that reflect your mood or several different holidays.
If you purchase a bright or light colored rug, you’ll probably notice that your bathroom will look a lot larger. It’s best so stay away from darker colored rugs which will, in turn, make your room look smaller and could make you feel claustrophobic or disappointed in your bathroom, where you’re sure to spend a lot of time.
This is the main reason that expert decorators advice home owners to refrain from putting dark colors in smaller spaces and why most bathrooms walls and ceilings are painted white. The brighter and lighter the room, the larger it appears!
