RUGS IN THE BEDROOM – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT RUGS FOR YOUR BEDROOM SUITE 

Your bedroom is the one place in your home that is exclusively yours, it is your own safe space for you to go to when you need to relax and enjoy some quiet alone time after a long day. Therefore, making it a space of your own that encourages calmness and tranquillity is vital. Adding an area rug to your bedroom is an excellent way to ground the space and add a softness and warmth to the space.
 
We love to incorporate area rugs in the bedroom that feature antique or vintage styles with muted tones to evoke a calming feeling. However, if your bedroom features a lot of neutral tones, you can also opt for a brightly coloured or patterned rug to add some personality to the space and make a bold statement.
 

WHY ADDING A RUG IN THE BEDROOM IS BOTH STYLISH AND FUNCTIONAL 

Besides the obvious function of adding warmth to the bedroom, adding a rug into your bedroom suite also ensures that the room has a sound buffer. An area rug can be used in a bedroom to hide scratches, scuff marks and accidental stains on the flooring, as well as act as a protective layer for your flooring.
 
Thick pile rugs are perfect for proving a layer of warmth below foot for when you first step out of bed on those crisp, cold mornings. Area rugs are also great for breaking up the bedroom and creating designated zones and areas.
 

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A RUG FOR YOUR BEDROOM  

Before you adventure out to buy a rug for your bedroom there are a few things that you need to consider in order to get the most out of your money. When buying a rug for your bedroom suite you need to consider the shape and size of the room, as well as the placement of the other furniture in the room. Along with the dimensions of both the room and the rug, you will also need to consider the colour palette and aesthetic of the room to ensure that the style of the rug will complement the space.
 

HOW TO PROPERLY MEASURE YOUR BEDROOM TO DETERMINE THE BEST RUG SIZE 

LARGER BEDROOMS

For a larger sized bedroom where there is more space for larger furniture pieces such as a vanity, chest of drawers and designated sitting areas, as well as the bedroom set and pedestals, small area rugs can be used. By using smaller area rugs instead of larger ones, you can section off the space and create different zones in the one bedroom. This innovative approach will break up the bedroom into different areas and will give the bedroom a more open-plan feel, as well as make it look and feel even larger.
 

SMALLER BEDROOMS 

If your bedroom is on the smaller side and there is not much extra room for additional furniture pieces besides the bed and bedside tables, then we recommend opting for a larger area rug. By adding a larger rug underneath and around the bed it can make the space look bigger and better. This innovative approach will tie the room together and make it feel cosier and more intentionally intimate, rather than just a small sized bedroom.
