Thinking about adding an area rug to your bedroom? An area rug is a great way to add extra comfort, color, texture, and style to your space. Redecorating your space, however, can seem like a daunting task. Luckily, there are multiple size possibilities that you can use for a rug under your queen bed!.
Read on to explore which size rug will fit your space best.
The first step to determine what area rug is best for your bedroom is to measure out the bedroom itself. This will help you determine the maximum size area rug your room will allow. Follow these steps to properly measure the dimensions for a rug under a queen bed:
You may notice that we highly recommend using a rug pad for area rugs underneath a bed. We advocate so highly for rug pads in this situation because of how heavy beds can be. A rug pad will act as a shock absorbent for the wear your bed’s weight and any movement it will cause. Instead of the daily wear and tear happening to your area rug, it will happen to the protective and robust rug pad underneath, thus extending the life of your rug.
A standard queen size bed is 5’ wide by 6’5” long. That being said, an 8’x10’ rug under your queen bed is the best rug size for a queen bed. This will leave 2.5 feet of rug on each side of the bed. Similar to a king-size bed, however, you can play around with this sizing if you so wish. The smallest area rug size we recommend is a 6x9n rug under a queen bed. Any smaller than this and the rug will become swallowed by your bed, making your new statement piece purposeless.
Vice versa, an area rug bigger than 8’x10’ could also work great if you have the space to fit it. Depending on the size of your bedroom, you can introduce a 9’x12’, a 10’x13’ or even an 11’x15’! In this case, feel free to add any additional furniture on your rug such as a bench or settle at the foot of your bed.
