Pack a Big Punch All Over the House with 4x6 Outdoor Rugs
Small spaces are great places for 4x6 rugs. 4x6 rugs are the perfect way to add a little softness and color to almost any space in the house. If your home has an open concept, divide up spaces with multiple rugs and provide a visual anchor for a table or other pieces of furniture. For some of our favorite ways to use 4x6 rugs indoors and out, read on.
Patios and Decks
Every doorway in your home could use a 4x6 rug in front of it. A longer rug is perfect for doorways to the outdoors like sliding glass doors to the deck or patio or French doors that lead to the deck. Indoor/outdoor 4’ x 6’ rugs are heavy-duty solutions that add style, and they can stand up to high traffic so that they will still look great even when there are a lot of people coming and going. Rugs at the patio and deck doorways will help keep your kitchen cleaner by trapping dirt and debris before it can get tracked into the house. Rugs will also act as a barrier to keep bugs outside where they belong.
You don’t have to use a bath mat in the bathroom. You can use any sturdy and soft rug. A longer 4’ x 6’ rug in the bathroom is a fantastic way to add some drama to the bathroom and make sure that you always have a soft dry place to put your feet. Recently some popular design blogs started showing bathrooms that had 4’ x 6’ Bohemian colorful rugs in white or neutral bathrooms and the results were stunning. The colors added a lot of dimension and interest to the previously cold bathroom and made the bathroom look more stylish than it did when there was just a bath mat. If you’re worried about using a rug in the bathroom because you don’t want to have to clean the rug, use an outdoor 4’ x 6’ rug in the bathroom instead of an indoor rug. Outdoor rugs are water resistant and easier to clean than other rugs but they still come in stylish colors and patterns.
Pets love carpet because it’s soft and cozy but many pet owners don’t want carpet in their homes because pets make it necessary to clean carpets often. You can get the best of both worlds by using outdoor 4’ x 6’ carpet for your pets to lounge on. The water resistant material is easy to clean but still soft and cozy for your pet. Put a rug under your pet’s bed if you have cold or hard floors so that their bed is more comfortable. Or, use small 4’x 6’ rugs to define a space where your pet is allowed.
Another ideal place for a 4’ x 6’ rug is in the bedroom. If you have hard floors in your bedrooms, a 4’ x 6’ rug is just the right size to put next to your bed so you have a soft and cozy place to put your feet when you get in and out of bed.
4’ x 6’ rugs are affordable and can be used all over the house. What creative ways do you use these rugs to give your home more style and comfort?
