Rug for Bedrooms

Bedroom rugs add so much coziness and comfort – without having all the dust and allergens usually inherent to wall-to-wall broadloom. And they’re just so cozy to roll out of bed and wiggle your toes on in the morning!

Rug Partially Under the Bed

With this area rug choice, the 5x7 4x6 rug will peek out from under the bed, more so at the foot of the bed. Also, the rug won’t extend all the way to the head of the bed and the nightstands will not sit on the rug at all. Turn the rug so that the longer side is parallel to the head and foot of the bed if you have larger than a twin bed in the space.

Rugs Beside the Bed

If you’d like to keep the bedroom area rug budget to a minimum, this option is perfect. You can choose rug size based on the size of your bedroom, perhaps a 3 x 5 rug  or  2x7  runner on each side of the bed.
