No modern bathroom is
truly complete without a bathroom rug of some kind.
These rugs are available in a wide variety of shapes,
sizes and styles - there's something for everybody's
taste out there. From your contemporary round bathroom
rug to big shaggy bathroom rugs you're spoiled for
choice when shopping online. Another nice thing about
a rug like this is that it allows you to update the
bathroom itself by just changing the rug and some of
the basic accents and accessories in the bathroom -
you don't always need to redecorate the entire room.
This can obviously save you a lot of money down
the line as you won't need to totally redecorate your bathroom to
give it a fresh look and feel each time you want to change it up a
bit. Visualize your bathroom as it currently is and then change it
a bit by changing the bath rug for a new style or color. Visualize
how this can and will change your bathroom. Isn't it amazing how
such a small change can make such a big difference to the entire
Bathroom rugs are popular for a lot of reasons
but the main one is safety - their original purpose was to stop
people from slipping on a wet or damp floor after bathing or
showering. The bath rug eliminates this fear because it gives the
bather a stable and comfortable surface to dry themselves on. Bath
rugs are really useful in a busy house with kids where you'll have
the shower in use for hours at a time. If you have a very large
bathroom rug then it can span that distance between the shower and
the sink so you can move from showering to brushing your teeth and
shaving in safety too!
These days bathroom rugs have moved beyond
mere function. They obviously do still serve a purpose in terms of
providing a safe surface to stand on after showering or bathing.
It's just that they've also become a very real and very common
bathroom accessory and are now normally integral in the design or
remodeling of any bathroom; in much the same way that carpets or
throw rugs are in any other room. Bathrooms are now becoming as
much a statement of a persons individual style as they are a
functional room that all humans need. In a way your bath rug will
form the centerpiece of the room and will attract a lot of
attention from visitors and say a lot about your taste and style.
Some people worry about being able to find the
perfect rug.... don't worry it does exist and will complement your
bathroom completely. It doesn't matter what style or pattern
you're looking for you'll be able to find a match for it in at
least one of the online stores and at a great price too. Some of
my own personal favourites are dolphin designs (how can you not
like dolphins?) and the new wooden duckboard mats that would be
ideal for a more rustic bathroom design.
Your bath rug gives you a real chance to add a
major dash of your own personality to your bathroom - make the
most of this opportunity!
