This spring, I’m planning a refresh of my own home. At the top of my list is to take stock of the bedroom rugs. I love a rug in the bedroom, to have that feeling of warmth and comfort underfoot. Here are some tips for how select the right one for each of the bedrooms in your home:
1. Chic and Functional
In a master bedroom, you want to make a stylish statement but still have a rug that will stand up to wear. I like to ensure that the rug is also large enough to extend out from both sides of the bed, to give you a great “landing spot” in the morning when you rise.
2. Go Big
Choose as large a rug as you can for any bedroom. It helps add a softness to the space and creates a more luxe look. You can even create your own rug out of a carpet that you like. Just have the edges bound by a professional, like a local carpet source.
3. A Cozy Welcome
In a guest bedroom, be sure the rug is as inviting and cozy as the bedding. Nothing says “welcome” to a guest more than a soft and sumptuous rug when they step out of bed.
4. Make It Work
In a child’s or teen’s bedroom, you want something that will stand up to a lot of roughhousing. Whether you choose a rug or carpet, be sure it’s easy to clean and has been treated for stains.
5. The Layered Look
For any bedroom, don’t be afraid to layer rugs. You could have a sisal or a carpet as your base for its wearability, and then place a softer-pile rug on top for comfort. Layered rugs create a luxe look in any room.
Use these tips to find the perfect rug for any bedroom in your home.
