This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

The Bathroommate Footrug is the shag bathroom rug with a cutout for the toilet that came with Freetime. I've recolored the mesh to include three new sizes (all 2 tile rugs) so you can have a matching set for the bathroom. There's 16 colors that were carefully chosen to match the Maxis plumbing and a few fun colors that match Maxis tiles and counters so you can get the most out of the existing game content.

Good Grief...that's a lot of rugs.
Because all of these rugs are recolors of the Bathroommate Footrug and not new objects they're all found under the same buy mode thumbnail. Which is great to cut down on meshes and catalog clutter but it made finding the rugs I wanted to use frustrating. My solution? I cut the number of rugs in half--I kept the small and medium sized rugs (I was using those the most) and took out the rest. Alternately, you can make use of the collection files. All of the rugs are clearly labeled to make deleting the ones you don't use easy.

Recommended Mod:
Get the most out of your rugs! Rugs - zMOG!! Off Grid!! by HugeLunatic is such a great mod that makes decorating with rugs fun instead of frustrating. Highly recommended if you don't have it yet.



Matching Carpet Tiles
I think it looks great when there's matching bedrooms and en suite bathrooms and since the rug textures were perfect for carpets I made the matching floors. There's 14 carpets instead of 16 because Maxis already has black and brown carpets that are almost identical so I didn't see the point. These are clearly labeled as well so feel free to ditch any you don't want.

Thank you for these pretty bath rugs! I can never have too many bath rugs for my sims...especially ones that are a set and all match! I love the color choices too....a nice wide variety of colors, thank you. Oh, and the carpets are lovely too!
