Im finishing up some of my Tiki project that needs a small rug. I'm looking at getting this rug because it is not overly tropical and the colors are not cartoony or so rich, I don't want thatching or lauhala mat as it will be wet in the areas I'm using this. I'm also already going to use lauhala on other areas.

Here the rug I'm thinking getting, does anyone have this already?

pics of other rugs are welcome.

Nice design and it won't overpower the area. What is the project you are using this for? (Nosey Tikiphile!!!)

Hi It's actually a Tiki Bath, but since the floor decor would work with any place with tile, I figured Tikibar builders can use some info too.
I found this rug today, but there no size vs cost chart

The pineapple rug is on back order. Im looking for options if it doesnt work out.

I'll have find some images of the bathroom so far.
I really want to hide a mini bar behind a painting or trapdoor to make it a actual Tiki Bar.

Here are a couple pics,
The house a 1942 Traditional style housing in Los Angeles. The walls in the bat are still plaster on wood. It had about 10 layers of paint and painting this bath was the hardest thing in the project.
I changes out all the fixtures to the HD Bamboo OB Bronze fixures. Painted the walls a green color, ceiling dark green. Made custom routered door frames, routed out light switch covers. stripped and staing inner side of the door also stained the vanity and the over the toilet cupboard. Added bamboo trim to the vanity. Made a new custom Bamboo framed mirror.. The tile work was already there when I got the house, I just fized some of the grout issues.
My wife made the curtains and found the Moai's in the little boat at the Tiki Marketplace. I found a decent fixture for the ceiling light but will make a could of custom lights soon. I'm also making custom crown molding with Tiki faces, we saw it a bar in Seattle and will make something similar.
I ened up adding some of 50th Aniversary ETR Shag art on one wall. I have space for about 3 more pices of art One of which will have a hidden Tiki Mini bar, I have yet to design and build.

Still have a few things on the to do list..
I need to order brown Decora triple switch and GFI outlet.
Need that rug, more art. I may make or customize the toilet seat cover and tank cover.
I need to add the Lauhala to the insets in the cabinet doors, add the handles to all the cabinets.
Make and router the crown molding and add back lighting rope.


Here are some pics





Stained door, hooks not installed yet

The rest
