get organized

First, remove all clutter from your bathroom counter and floor. Store items in drawers or under the sink. If your bathroom is lacking in storage, buy a few attractive containers to hold toiletries and towels.

Next, add soft furnishings like rugs, towels, and if needed, a shower curtain in a neutral color scheme. White is most common for a spa, but other neutrals like gray, beige and even light blues and greens work too.

A cotton, chenille or indoor/outdoor rug will help absorb water and wear well in the bathroom and can be cleaned easily.

Farmhouse Bathroom

If you find yourself drawn to farmhouse style, you’ll likely appreciate an organic and casual atmosphere with simple lines and well loved (aged) materials. For a farmhouse bathroom, you’ll want to mix old and new. A vintage style rug placed in front of the sink or tub can add softness and safety. Or, try a simple flat woven striped rug in black and white over wood floors. Use a rug pad to prevent slipping.

Transitional Elegance

Transitional style combines traditional design elements with contemporary style. In your transitional bathroom, you’ll find smooth straight lines combined with soft curvy textures. A rug is a great way to balance your transitional space. If you have a smooth lacquered vanity, add softness with a round or oval rug. Balance out bold masculine tile with a cushy rectangular chenille rug.

Chic and Glamorous Bathroom Rug Ideas

Double Vanity

Double vanities extend the bathroom space, creating room for two. Here, a beautiful vintage runner is centered between two vanities creating a soft place to land your feet while still showcasing your bathroom's tile. Standard sizes for bathroom rug decorating tend to be smaller to prevent cluttering the floor. These smaller sizes are also easier to clean regularly, keeping your bathroom sanitary and welcoming.


If your home style is all about glitzy sophistication, then your bathroom should be no different. Glam style incorporates a neutral color scheme with sculptural lines and dramatic details. Give your bathroom that ‘Old Hollywood’ vibe by starting with a neutral color palette, then add a bathroom vanity or pedestal sink with sculptural lines and metallic detail. Finally, add thick and luxurious towels and rugs in traditional or geometric patterns. A high pile rug made from wool or synthetic materials feels rich and handles moisture well.

Heirloom Accent

This printed rug features an eye-catching heirloom pattern printed on a soft and durable surface that’s resilient enough to stand up to regular bathroom use. The rug’s auburn color palette works well with the olive cabinets, tying the decor together and giving the bathroom a warm appeal. If you have colorful cabinets in the bathroom (maybe ones you can't paint over), try using a patterned rug as the focal point to help split the attention.

Boho Bathroom

This modern boho bathroom uses color coordination between the rug and shower curtain to create a cohesive and welcoming look. A narrow layout doesn't make bathroom rug decorating difficult—it just calls for a runner instead of a larger option. Here, the runner helps elongate the space without making it feel crowded. And the accents continue the color coordination, completing the boho style.

Playing with Prints

This bathroom makes excellent use of patterns, prints, and contrast. The tribal print runner is charming and sophisticated, and it softens the half-painted walls. If you're looking for bathroom mat ideas to go with fun paint or attractive wall designs like those shown here, consider a grounded tribal design in neutral colors. Remember, your accents don't have to match perfectly to work beautifully together.

Floral Appeal

This bathroom calls for an eye-catching rug with its floral curtains, a stylish bathtub, and a textured stool. And the vintage-styled runner fits the bill perfectly. It emphasizes the pink found in the floral curtain while still playing with contrast beside the black cabinets. If you love floral designs, try pairing them with traditional medallion rugs like this one to complete your look.

Spa-Like Texture

There's something special about curling your toes into a clean, textured surface right after getting out of the shower or bath. It can make you feel like you've arrived at your own personal spa, and it's excellent for helping moisture evaporate more quickly. And since this is a Chilewich mat, it’ll be easy to clean and moisture resistant. Mats like this add texture to your design, too, which can make the decor in your bathroom feel polished and professional.

Soothing Stripes

If you’re decorating a master bathroom with a bathtub, a rug is more than a style choice. It can also make getting in and out of the tub safer by providing a slip-free surface for you to place wet feet on. Here, we see another Chilewich mat, this time in stripes of soothing blues. Chilewich mats are crafted from vinyl yarns that are prized for their ability to withstand moisture, traffic, and cleaning.

Cool Blue Bathroom Rug Ideas

Cool Blues

Blue is one of the most popular colors for the bathroom. It makes sense, too, since it's associated with water, relaxation, and spa vibes. Here, you see the power of a blue round or oval rug placement in the bathroom. Bathroom floor mats with rounded corners make the space appear larger while creating a softer appeal. And with braided bathroom rug construction, common in farmhouse rugs, you’ll enjoy enhanced durability and easier cleaning, which is a must for this space.

Grey Bathroom Rug Ideas

Chilled Grey

Grey is yet another soothing rug color that we love seeing in bathroom mat ideas. The skinny stripes of grey complement the marbled grey throughout this lovely bathroom, giving it a relaxing appeal. And since it’s a Chilewich mat, it promises to be easy to clean, moisture resistant, and long-lasting...the perfect fit for a master or guest bathroom.
