Last week we talked about the easiest and most cost effective way to update or even completely transform a room. By adding new paint with our tips, you’re sure to get PRO results. Another easy way to bring a little personality into a room is to add an area rug. Area rugs are great throughout the home, but what about an area rug for bedroom?
You might wonder how to choose an area rug for your bedroom. Or ask where should an area rug be placed in a bedroom?
Adding a nice soft area rug to your bedroom will surround yourself with warmth and coziness. The rug should be placed around the lower two-thirds of your bed.
Including an area rug will add your own unique style and personality to your space! You can also hide carpet stains, protect solid wood floors, or buffer noise by adding a rug.

How To Choose Area Rug For Bedroom
Use these tips to choose a rug that will bring your personality into your space while tying all the decor elements together.
Make Sure Your Rug Is The Right Size
Adding the right size area rug to any room is important. You don’t want the rug to be too large or too small. So how do you know what size you should be looking for?
As a general rule of thumb, here’s a guide to help you choose which size will work in your space.
Bed Size Rug Size
Twin 5′ x 8′
Full 6′ x 9′
Queen 8′ x 10′
King 9′ x 12′
Pick An Area Rug Style
Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, a place you can escape and tune everything else out at the end of the day.
Choosing an area rug style should include your personal preference. Begin by observing your room, if the majority of your furniture or walls are a solid color, you may want to go for that lively pattern.
If the furniture is ornate or busy in appearance, you may opt to go for a neutral color or pattern.
Selecting the right materials for an area rug
Not only do area rugs come in a variety of styles, they also come in a wide array of materials. Specifically thinking about an area rug for bedroom, you won’t likely be tracking dirt all the way to this room. Which means if you’re drawn to that soft, fluffy rug, that’s harder to clean, you may be able to get away with it here.
If you have pets consider avoiding rugs with continuous loops which will snag on claws, as well as rugs made from silk which don’t take long to show wear.
The thinner and bumpier a rug is, the easier it is to clean. Polypropylene rugs and wool area rugs are very durable and easy to clean.
If your bedroom gets a lot of sun, you’ll want a rug that can handle all seasons. You can also tilt your blinds throughout the day to minimize direct sunlight on your rug.
Decide on your rug first, then add accessories
An area rug for bedroom will tie all of the other decor elements together. If you’re already starting with a fully decorated room, it might be challenging to pick a rug that will coordinate with everything else.
By deciding on the color, design and material of the rug first, it will be a lot easier to pick coordinating elements that accentuate the rug.
consider using a pad
When placing an area rug for a bedroom over an existing carpeted floor, the rug should stay in place well, especially if the rug is positioned under the legs of the bed.
If placing an area rug on top of a hard surface, it may tend to slip and slide around with foot traffic. In this case you may want to use a pad underneath the rug.
We hope your wheels are turning and you have ideas flowing into your mind on how you can incorporate an area rug into your bedroom.
