Do: Make your bedroom as stylish as possible
Don’t: Leave your floor cold and uncomfortable
If there’s one thing most people can agree on when it comes to wellness, it’s that a good night’s sleep can help you keep your life in order! Experts say you can help yourself get a good night’s sleep with a comfortable sleeping area, a good nighttime ritual, and dedicated hours that are meant for sleeping. Your bedroom’s design, from the window treatments to rugs under beds, can help create the perfect environment for you to get your full eight hours every night.
A bedroom that pleases the eye with style and softness can encourage you to want to go to bed, especially if you struggle to find the motivation to turn in every night. If you have no problem sleeping in, a rug can give you a comfortable place to readjust to the wide-awake world while looking out the window and gripping a cup of coffee.
Rugs under beds need to have the texture and style that fits your bedroom best, but they should also match the size of your bed and the size of your room, giving you the amount of rug extending outside of your bed’s silhouette that balances and emphasizes your bedroom design. A rug can either fit on the side of your bed, partially under and partially out, or it can have the bed placed in the center. If your bedroom has a hardwood floor or a slippery surface, rugs under beds can protect the floor and the bedposts from each other.
Just-Right Rugs: Not Too Hard, Not Too Soft
Do: Find a texture you love walking on first thing in the morning
Don’t: Grab the first rug that fits your bed size.
No one wants to feel how cold the floor is early in the morning, especially during the winter when it’s still dark as your alarm goes off. Gently adjust to being awake with a fluffy, textured rug that can absorb heat and keep even the darkest of Monday mornings luxurious. Pair fluffy wool or cotton rugs with an equally fluffy duvet for your bed, or opt for a different material that will contrast with rugs under beds. You don’t have to choose the only rug that fits your bed size: many rugs come in a wide variety of sizes, from small to large to circular to oversized.
Shag Rugs: The ultimate soft feel for your feet, shag rugs, like flokati rugs or Morrocan rugs, create an atmosphere of warmth and coziness for your bedroom. These rugs can come in their natural white, which matches with all duvets, or any other shade you prefer.
Wool Rugs: All natural wool rugs are soft yet invigorating (like a latte). These rugs can act like your favorite wool sweater and get you prepared for the rest of the day with their chunky weave and their fluffy texture.
Natural Fiber Rugs: Fibers like jute and seagrass can be stimulating to wake up to in the morning. Tread across their brisk weave to watch the sunrise for a few moments before jumping into the rest of the day.
Sheepskin Rugs: Like stepping from bed into a cloud beside your bed, sheepskin and faux sheepskin can stand on their own, or they can be paired on top of a natural fiber rug to create a cool layered effect.
Rugs like this Ivory Shaded Shag With Tassels Area Rug, found at Rugs USA, make for a soft landing in the morning. Whether you have white bed covers or any other pattern on your bed, this rug will match your style in the most versatile way. It is also easy to clean in case you spill coffee or orange juice on them. This rug comes in many different shapes, from round to oval to rectangular.
Want a different texture or look? Try this Seagrass with Border Area Rug for a unique look that emphasizes the appearance of your bed. If you already have too much fluff in your room, or if you prefer smoother rugs under beds, a 100 percent seagrass rug still acts as a cushion for the morning but gives you a sharper edge to work into your room’s design.
Right-Sized Rugs: Not Too Big, Not Too Small
Do: Measure how much space your room has for a rug under the bed
Don’t: Be afraid to go big!
Rug sizes for queen beds and rug sizes for king beds can seem tricky, but they don’t have to be. Most queen beds are 80×60 inches, while most king beds are 80×76 inches. You can buy an oversized rug if you have a large bedroom, or you can find a rug that is just a little bigger than the bed by two or three inches. If you want to put a mirror and a dresser on the rug as well, a bigger rug will suit your needs. For a king-size bed, choose a 6×9 foot rug, and for a smaller bedroom, choose a 4×6 foot rug for the center, or a 2×3 foot accent rug for around the bed. Even bigger rugs can hold a king bed and nightstands.
This Moroccan Trellis Area Rug found at Rugs USA can hold your queen bed or your king bed and the furniture you want in its two biggest sizes. Unsure of which size will work best? Measure the area of your room.
Right-On Rugs: Styles That Match Your Bedding
Do: Find a rug that complements your favorite bedding.
Don’t: Be afraid of bold contrasts or different patterns.
Your bed is the most important part of the bedroom: It’s in the name. Blankets, duvets, and afghans make it your little oasis. You’ve already picked out your favorite style for the bed, so now how can you incorporate a rug under the bed that can make your bedroom a statement.
Match a monochromatic or classical style of duvet with bedroom curtains and a traditional Persian rug. If you want two separate patterns, choose the eclectic style and find a pattern that won’t clash with your duvet’s pattern. Faded rugs where the pattern is not easily distinguishable can also introduce new ideas and new themes into your space.
If you have a simple duvet, try this Geometric Banded Area Rug found at Rugs USA to make your room an interesting, exciting space. You can draw the sunlight into the room through the window by your bed and make the most of the natural glow.
Meanwhile, this darker Hazy Waves Area Rug can help mute an overly enthusiastic sunbeam in the morning while you struggle to wake up. Pair a rug like this with darker curtains for the best effect.
