How Many Bath Rugs Do You Need?

  • by Erika Cellupica
  • 5 min read

This article answers the question of how many bath rugs you really need (answer: more than you think). We showcase how Abyss Habidecor Must Rugs can be a versatile design accessory for your bathroom, bedroom, and other spaces in your bedroom suite.

How Many Bath Rugs Are Enough?

The answer to this question of course, depends on the layout and size of your space. One thing we can say for certain, you definitely want to think beyond just one rug outside your shower stall or bath, even if you've got a small bathroom. Some ideas for rug placement:

  • A rug in front of your vanity (two if you've got a double sink)
  • For a larger bathroom, a round rug as a centerpiece to the room.
  • A large rug in front of a spa or sauna.
  • A hallway runner rug leading into an ensuite bath.
  • A smaller rug or two by each bedside.
  • In your dressing room or closet.
  • A custom size area rug to add a touch of warmth and luxury to any space in your bed and bath.

As you can tell, there's no need to limit rugs to just the bathroom floor. With their versatile shapes and array of shades, they're the perfect accessory to enhance any bedroom décor. You need not even be confined to a single color; feel free to experiment with matching complementary shades and sizes.

Pro Tip: For high traffic areas, we recommend having a second set of rugs and washing and rotating these regularly to keep your space looking its best.

Elevate Your Bath (& More) With a Luxurious Habidecor Must Bath Rug

If you're looking to make an immediate style statement in your bath, the solution is -- quite literally -- right under your feet: A luxury Must Bath Rug from Habidecor. Here at Fine Linen and Bath, we think a high-quality bath rug is the unsung hero for accessorizing both your bath and bedroom suite. And the Must Bath Rug is one of our absolute favorite styles. These bath rugs transcend practical function (warming floors and feet) to serve as an essential element in bath décor. But how many bath rugs do you need? Our design team is here to offer a closer look at the many ways to style your space with a bath rug. We'll also showcase the beauty and versatility of the Habidecor Must Bath Rug Collection. Read on to learn how to make the most of this indispensable accessory.

Bath Rug vs. Bath Mat: Understanding the Difference

Before we begin, let's clarify the question our design team fields at least once a week: What's the difference between a bath rug and a bath mat? A bath mat serves a specific purpose: to catch water from wet feet and prevent slips. It is lightweight, highly absorbent, and commonly made of cotton terry, resembling a thick towel. Coordinated as part of bath towel collections, bath mats ensure a seamless blend in color scheme, style, and finish. For added safety, one can opt for a non-slip bath mat with a silicone finish. Check out the Abyss Super Pile bath mat collection here.

A bath rug, on the other hand, transcends functionality to serve a decorative accessory. Heavier in weight and typically crafted from combed cotton, bath rugs often feature a canvas or non-slip backing. These rugs can be strategically placed anywhere on the bathroom (or bedroom) floor, coordinating with design elements or making a bold style statement on their own. Bath rugs come in a range of sizes, including custom options. Learn more about the differences between bath rugs and bath mats here.

Habidecor Must Rugs Are Easy to Care For

Habidecor Must Rugs can go in your washing machine. Read your rug's specific care guidelines before laundering and follow these general instructions:

  • Wash your Habidecor rug before the first use, removing all tags first with scissors.
  • Machine wash Must bath rugs in cold water in a separate load.
  • Sort by color and size.
  • Use a mild detergent like Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent.
  • Give the rug a gentle shake to remove excess water as you remove it from the machine.
  • Tumble dry your rug on LOW HEAT ONLY if care guidelines permit. Stop the dryer periodically to “fluff" the rug.
  • Never use bleach or fabric softener.
  • Consider using wool dryer balls to soften and speed up the drying time.

For heavier rugs, use only a front-loading machine without an agitator (which may require a trip to the laundromat). Read more care instructions for your Habidecor rugs here.
