Finding the Right Coral Bath Rugs
Since you already know that you’d like coral bath rugs, you're halfway to a perfect purchase. The next step is to identify precisely what you want and need from your rug. This process will help you avoid standard buyer's mistakes.
Below, you’ll find our tips for picking the right coral bath area rugs for your home. Keep reading to get inspired.
Decide on the style you’d like to add to your bathroom before you buy. If you’re going for a lively color, you might want a bright coral bath rug. And if you're going for a purely nautical feel, you might want a coral pattern on your rug, not the color coral. The style of the rug(s) you buy will make or break how they look in the room.
Think about the exposure in your bathroom. If you use it for bathing or showering, it probably sees a lot of moisture. If it's a guest bathroom, it might see elevated levels of shoe traffic and soil. Whatever the case in your household, you'll want a rug that's durable enough to stand up to it.
For example, a coral bath mat designed for humid bathroom use and regular cleaning would work well if you shower in the bathroom regularly. On the other hand, a coral bath runner made for everyday indoor use could work well in a half bathroom used by guests.
Measure your bathroom and the areas you'd like to cover. This step will help you decide what size of rug you need. A spacious open bathroom, for example, could accommodate a large coral bath rug. But a small, narrow bathroom might do better with compact bathmats.
Once you have dimensions in mind, consider testing them on the floor before you buy. You can do a simple test by outlining the measurements on the floor in masking tape or you can give our room visualizer tool a try. This way, you can adjust up or down a size before you buy, not after.
You won’t always need a rug pad in the bathroom. For example, if you pick a coral bath rug with a sticky backing, it doesn't need a pad and would do better without one. But if you buy a standard indoor area rug, a pad will keep it in place and reduce the wear to the backing and pile. This can add years to the life of your purchase.
