Using Navy Blue Bathroom Rugs
Navy is a calming color that adds depth, warmth, and character to any space. And by using navy blue bathroom rugs, you don't have to commit to anything like painting an accent wall to get this color. Navy blue pairs well with white, gold, black, grey, dusty pink, warm yellow, pale purple, earthy brown, and other shades of blue.
If you're looking for inspiration on using your navy blue bath rugs, we're here to help. We've included some of our favorite ways to use these beauties below:
Navy blue gets its name because it was worn by officers in the British Royal Navy starting in 1748, and it is quintessentially coastal. A navy striped bath rug can capture the coastal aesthetic with ease, making your bathroom evocative of oceanside vibes. And if you're not a fan of stripes, you might try another navy and white bathroom rug to the same effect.
Add to the coastal theme with white, gold, coral, and tan in the palette. You might also use sea-themed accents like seashells or anchors to give your bathroom a whimsical feel.
Navy blue wears many hats, and it works particularly well in mature, calm decor. For example, you might use a navy and gray bath rug in a minimalist bathroom with a gray accent wall or shower curtain. Grey and navy go well with white, silver, and gold. This makes the combination perfect for rented spaces that you might not be able to change.
A standard bathmat set isn't always necessary or the best fit. Half bathrooms and narrow layouts might call for a navy bath runner or another rug shape to best suit the available space. Look at placement guides and measure your bathroom carefully to decide if your space is a good match with a runner.
With so many possibilities, you're probably ready to pick your favorite from our selection of navy blue bath rugs. First, we recommend looking at the tips below to help avoid common buyer's mistakes:
Measure Carefully:We mentioned measuring carefully and using placement guides above, but it bears repeating. You never want to guess which rug size you want, especially in smaller areas like the bathroom.
Consider Durability:Most bathrooms have high levels of moisture, and some experience heavy foot traffic (guest bathrooms, usually). Pick a rug that's durable enough to withstand the environment in your bathroom so that it stays beautiful for years to come.
