If you buy a rug for the bathroom. make sure the colors are compatible with the color of the bathmat. (Or buy a new bathmat.) It is also important that a rug in the bathroom not be adversely affected by moisture especially if it will be underfoot when you step out of the shower or bath. Maintenance is an important consideration when choosing rugs not only for the bathroom. but also the kitchen. the hall. or the room of a child. Select designs and colors that don`t show the dirt. and are stain resistant and easy to clean.
If you want an area rug to cover most of the floor in a room. the same amount of bare floor should be exposed on all sides of the rug. even if the room is an irregular shape or there is a closet or fireplace extending into it. If you are not able to arrange that. try and have the same amount of floor showing on two parallel sides.
The pattern on the rug must not clash with patterns on the wallpaper. window coverings. cushions. and other fabrics in the room. Dark colors add warmth. and light colors will make the room appear more spacious. The amount of traffic is also a consideration. If there are children or pets. or the rug will get steady use. dark colors and intricate patterns will not show dirt as much or as quickly as light colors.
Oriental rugs - a term which refers. in decorating lingo. to rugs from any Asian country - are popular in modern as well as traditional homes.
