Bathroom rugs can be decorative as well as durable.

Instead of a traditional shaggy throw rug, today's bathroom rugs have more in common with rugs and carpeting found in other parts of the house. Function is still important because of the humidity and water spills that occur in a bathroom, but not at the expense of good style, according to IdeasForHomeDecorating.com.

Handmade rugs don't usually do well in a bathroom because the moisture can cause rotting in the construction or cause the yarns to become brittle. Manufactured rugs designed specifically for wet environments stand up much better in bathrooms.

The size of the bathroom should determine the rug choice, the website advises. A water resistant mat is necessary at tubside, outside a shower stall or at the foot of a sink vanity. But if there is another area where water can't reach, a rug can be an ideal and comfortable companion to a chair or dressing area.


When it comes to matching rugs to window treatments in a bathroom, aluminum mini blinds are a good choice for their wide variety of colors. They are also durable and easy to clean.
