Bathroom rug issue


I bought a memory foam bathroom rug at Sam's the other day. It's great, but when someone wants to close the door to go to the bathroom it's very hard. They almost have to push the door closed. Anyway to make it easier to close the door since the rug is a bit higher off the floor?

Move the rug?

Maybe check Bed and Bath, my wife got a couple from there, they have different sizes. Sams Club usually just has 1 choice.

Trim the bottom of the door
How much clearance is there from the door to the floor when the door is closed?

Thought about suggesting that too, but what happens when they decide to change rugs? Now the door's a 1/4" shorter. Not that its a big deal.

Bathroom rug issue


If you read past posts, there was a thread about how much clearance is acceptable for an interior door.

The answers ranged from 3/4" to 1-1/2"

So I would start at 1-1/4" and see if that clears the rug enough.
If not, go for the 1-1/2"

Worrying about the next owner doesn't make any sense.

Use sheep shears to trim the rug?
