Which of them would you say please? Which sentence is correct? And can you picture the shape of the rug and know what I'm talking about?

1 I bought a rug that was rounded on one side so it would fit around the front base of the toilet.
2 I bought a rug that was round in shape so it would fit around the base of the toilet.
3 I bought a rug that had a rounded shape so it would...
4 I bought a round/rounded rug so it would....

How would you say 5

5 Toilet rugs are shaped like so it/in a way so you can go around the base of the toilet.

Could you give me a sentence with SO and one with IN A WAY? please

thank you

A round rug means only one thing: the rug is completely round - like a pizza.

When something is "rounded," it usually means that the external corners have been blunted, so to speak. That is, the overall shape may be square, rectangular, or almost any other shape; but the corners are not "sharp."

If I understand your meaning, your rug is special because the "rounded" portion is internal rather than external. The rounded part could be described as a "cutout," or an "indentation." It's analogous to a cove/bay/harbor on the shoreline.

"I bought a rug which had a cutout to fit (so it would fit) around the base of the toilet."

"Bathroom rugs are often shaped/designed to fit around the base of the toilet."

"My bathroom rug is shaped in a way which/that allows it to fit around the base of the toilet.

alc24One question please

If were were talking about ordinary rugs and not a toilet rug, which of the following would be correct?

1 I bought a rug that was rounded on one side. Okay. I assume it's square (flat) on 3 sides, and rounded on one. An unusual rug shape, but okay.
2 I bought a rug that was round in shape. (can you say IN SHAPE?) There's no need to say that. I bought a round/circular rug.
3 I bought a rug that had a rounded shape. Yes, and this implies it's not completely round - maybe the edges aren't squared off at the corners.
4 I bought a round/rounded rug. I bought a round/circular rug.

Thank you
