Round rugs are commonly used to make smaller places feel larger. The arch of the rug encourages your eye to travel across the room and makes the entire space appear bigger than it actually is.
Easy to clean/low maintenance - Washable rugs are extremely easy to clean and can take the daily wear and tear and be brought to their former glory with a good cleaning.
Durability - Round washable machine rugs are often composed of synthetic fibers or cotton. Common synthetic fibers include nylon, olefin, polyester, viscose, and polypropylene. Rugs made of cotton are the most affordable machine washable rugs, but synthetic rugs tend to be more durable than pure cotton rugs.
High traffic - spots such as kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways greatly benefit from choosing a rug that can stand up to your lifestyle and remain gorgeous even in the face of mud, food droppings, and anything else stuck on shoes.
DECORATING WITH A ROUND WASHABLE RUG
Styling Tips Based on Rooms:
Dining Room - Round rugs look excellent when paired with a round dining room table, and it's natural to center a table atop of the rug. However, you can also have your table off center if the rug is larger, and doing so will create a more free-spirited atmosphere and draw your eye to the rest of the room.
Bedroom - Round bedroom rugs can look great to the side of the bed, partly underneath it and partly extending to the rest of the room. If you have a chair in the corner of the room next to the bed, having a round rug off-center also can connect the bed to that seating area visually and thematically.
Kitchen - If you have an open kitchen, placing a round rug by highly used areas such as the sink and stove can add in visual interest and serve you well practically as a soft, comfortable surface to stand on.
Outdoors - On your back porch, you can stylize your washable round rug in front of a sofa, centered in your seating area, or underneath your dining room table.
Bathroom - A round bathroom rug can look excellent centered in the room, in front of a vanity, or in front of a bathtub. If you have square tiles on your floor and walls, using a machine washable round rug can act as a nice breath from the straight lines and patterns of the tilework and add in some softness.
