Are you stumped on how to add the perfect rug to your bedroom? Decorating a bedroom with rugs can be intimidating but, with the right tips, you can make it very easy. There are a lot of choices available in terms of rugs and mats. You can choose from these choices and get a stunning look for your bedroom very easily. Whether you’re looking to place the rug under furniture or just coordinate colors and patterns, we’ll provide all the advice you need.
Sizing Under the Bed
Finding the perfect size rug or logo mats for underneath your bed is essential. Too small of a rug can make it look like an afterthought; too large and you won’t have enough space for other items. Measure your bed first so that you don’t purchase one too small or too big. You want to leave about 18″ – 24″ between the edges of the bed and walls of your room to get that light, airy feel. In most cases, getting a larger rug is best as this provides more flexibility when arranging other pieces of furniture in the room.
Placing Beside the Bed
If you choose to place a rug beside your bed instead of underneath it, you should keep it relatively central in the room rather than offsetting it too far away from the foot of your bed. This ensures visibility from all angles when entering or leaving a room. Additionally, if there is additional flooring beyond the head of your bed consider using two runner rugs on either side instead of one large one spanning both sides. Make sure they are symmetrical in length and width, so they appear balanced even though they are slightly separated.
Sizing Under Furnishings
When placing rugs under furniture such as chairs and tables, similar rules apply when considering sizes. You want enough space to be able to walk around each piece without needing any further rearranging when moving furniture out of its usual spot within the bedroom’s design layout. If possible, try not to go smaller than 6 feet by 4 feet; however, if space is limited here then 4 feet by 3 feet at least allows some definition as well as creating an illusion of space by allowing light from both sides of each item within its perimeter layer.
There are considerations for how best to use rugs completing any bedroom design layout no matter what size or shape, whether placed under beds or beside them, or even beneath furnishings. As shown above, all pieces do not need to match yet allowing a balance between size and style is essential for giving depth and texture to traditionally tricky parts of bedrooms bringing that perfect finishing touch.
