Finding the Best Lighthouse Area Rugs
With so many lighthouse area rugs to choose between, it can be tough to settle on your favorite rug. To help you eliminate choices that might not be best for your home, we’ve highlighted a few tips below:
Color: Look at the existing palette in the room that you’re decorating and pick a rug color that goes well with it.
Durability: Choose a material and durability level that you can keep clean in your home, taking into account moisture, soil, shoe traffic, and exposure levels.
Size: Measure the room you’re decorating to pick a suitable rug size. If you’re unsure, give our room visualizer tool a try to see how the different rug sizes will look in your space.
Pad:Rug pads add years to the life of rugs by protecting the backing and pile. Add one to your cart unless the listing states that the rug doesn’t need a pad.

A coastal living room is the perfect setting for lighthouse throw rugs. Place a rug in the center of your seating area with the front legs or all legs of your furniture on its surface. You can also use nautical rugs to define separate spaces attached to your living room, like a reading nook, play area, or workstation.
Try pairing a nautical rug with other coastal decor and natural materials to complete the look.
Since the bathroom is naturally associated with all things water, a lighthouse bath mat is a great fit even if the rest of your home is decorated with another style. Lighthouse bathroom rugs should be able to stand up to moisture if the room is used for showering or bathing.
To make your rug or mat last longer in a space used for showering or bathing, pick it up and hang it to dry after each use. And clean it regularly for sanitation purposes.
A nautical kitchen is uplifting and soothing to spend time in, and lighthouse kitchen rugs can set the scene. Try picking something with a fun pattern or bright colors while still matching it with the kitchen’s color scheme. And don’t forget durability so that the rug can stand up to regular cleaning and occasional messes.
If your kitchen sees a lot of traffic and moisture, look for lighthouse area rugs made from indoor/outdoor materials for easier cleaning.
