Picking the right rug for your bedroom can be a bit tricky. With so many different possibilities you may be wondering where to start. Read on to explore our tips in choosing the best area rug for your bedroom!
1. An Area Rug Underneath the Bed
2. An Area Rug Beneath Two Beds
If you have two beds in one room, always keep in mind that you want at least 2 feet of area rug on either side of the bed so your feet land on enough rug when you get out of bed. The beds should also be spaced apart to accommodate one nightstand in-between the beds. The smallest area rug that could accommodate two beds (either twin or full) is a 9x12, but we typically recommend a 10x13 or larger.
Alternative configurations for area rugs in bedrooms are scatter rugs, runners, or even 5x8 area rugs strategically placed. If you prefer this look, you can always place two matching runners on either side of your bed, and cap it off with a matching 3x5 or 4x6 at the foot. You can also place matching 3x5s or even 4x6s on either side of the bed if your space allows.
If you have carpeting in your bedroom you may not think you can integrate an area rug into your space. However, introducing a 5x8 or smaller rug at just the foot of your bed is a great way to integrate more color and texture into your bedroom!
If your bedroom is very large, area rugs are a great way to define spaces. If you want to define a separate seating area in your bedroom, in addition to an area rug under your bed, you can arrange your seating area furniture around a rug to ground that space.
In summary, the main idea to remember is the minimum sizing rules for under beds and always maintain at least 12 inches of hard surface exposed between the rug and the wall. As always, our team is here to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
