Placing a rug under your bed helps create a defined area and breaks up the room. While it’s not required, adding a rug under your bed is a great way to elevate your bedroom design. Plus, it adds a coziness when you get out of bed instead of immediately stepping on hardwood floors or carpet.
When choosing a rug under your bed, you want to make sure you pick the correct size. For king beds, the best size is 9’x’12’ or 8’x10′, depending on how much you want the rug to show on each side. Queen beds should use an 8’x10′ or 7’x9′ rug.
Once you’ve found the right size, explore different styles to fit your design. For example, opt for a plush rug for a cozier design or a crisp gray or white rug for a more modern style.
