Using a 24 x 60 Bathroom Rug
Most bathrooms will have enough floor space for a 24 x 60 bathroom rug. At 2’x5’, a bathroom rug of this size would work well in front of a bathtub or shower. It would also work well to protect or hide the floors in a half-bath.
In either case, we recommend measuring your bathroom carefully and mapping out where your 24 x 60 bathroom area rug would fit. Try our room visualizer tool to help see the dimensions to decide if you've selected an appropriate size for your layout. If not, consider sizing up or down to find the right fit.
Below, you’ll find some pointers for picking the best bathroom rug for your bathroom. Keep reading for more tips and inspiration.
Think Color and Style
Your bathroom rug's color and style will significantly impact how the room looks and feels. You might opt for a 24 x 60 nautical bathroom area rug to create a beachy theme in the bathroom, which is a popular option in all styles of homes.
Alternatively, select a simple rug and pick colors that go well with the palette of the bathroom you're decorating. A darker rug like a 24 x 60 brown or black bathroom area rug can work well if the rest of the decor is bright, providing grounding. If the space feels dark as it is, though, we’d recommend a lighter option like white, grey, tan, light blue, or yellow.
Choose the Right Material
The right material for your bathroom depends on the amount of traffic and exposure in this zone of the home. Those decorating half bathrooms don’t need to worry about the excess moisture from a shower or tub, but you may need to consider heavy foot traffic or soil exposure. Likewise, if your bathroom is protected from shoe traffic, you may still need to consider increased moisture exposure.
If you’re placing your new 24x60 bathroom runner rug in a bathroom that receives high levels of traffic, consider a rug pad. Pads prevent sliding and add years to the life of your rug. If the rug you pick already has an anti-skid backing, or if you'll pick it up after each use, you can skip the pad.
