Using a Persian Bathroom Rug
A Persian bathroom rug needs to be the right size, shape, and color for your space. It must also be made from an appropriate material that can stand up to your bathroom's traffic and exposure levels. Purchasing the wrong size or material are common buyer mistakes, and your ordering process will be much more positive if you know what you want ahead of time.
Below we’ve highlighted tips to help you pick a perfect Persian bathroom area rug the first time. Keep reading to get inspired.
Color and Style
Look for Persian style bathroom rugs with a similar color and style to those already found in your bathroom. For example, a bathroom decorated in blues and greens with a bold aesthetic would work well with a vibrant blue/green design. But a vintage chic bathroom with tan and white colors would work better with a faded neutral-toned option.
Use the color and style filters to narrow your search and make it easier to find the best rug for your bathroom.
Material and Durability
Consider the levels of moisture and shoe traffic exposure your bathroom will face and pick a material that’s durable enough to stand up to it. Bathrooms with no tub or shower and no shoe traffic can get away with softer, more delicate options like a wool Persian bathroom rug. Meanwhile, a bathroom that sees shoe traffic and regular showers or baths might need an indoor/outdoor rug to make it easy to clean.
Use the material filter to find rugs that can stand up to your bathroom’s activity and exposure levels.
Measure your bathroom and pick rug dimensions accordingly. Outline the dimensions you select on the floor in masking tape to see a visual representation--this can help you decide if the size you've chosen is too large or small. You can also give our room visualizer a try to see the rug virtually in your space.
Most bathroom layouts will work well with a Persian bathroom rug 24x60, but longer runners can be useful for narrow guest bathrooms. Use the size filter to search only for rugs available in the dimensions you need for your bathroom layout.
Buy a Rug Pad
Placing a pad under your Persian bathroom rug can add years to its life. Rug pads prevent sliding and surface damage to the backing and pile of your rug. We advise that you add one to your cart before checkout unless the rug you buy states explicitly that it does not need a pad. Look for an indoor/outdoor pad if the bathroom has a shower or tub.
