Choosing the Ideal Size Area Rug for Your Bedroom

An area rug in a bedroom makes the room cozy and calming. It's also comfortable when first getting up in the morning, especially in cooler months. But what is the ideal area rug size for a bedroom? It all depends upon the layout, and there are a few options to consider. What you decide on will depend upon your desired goals for a bedroom area rug, the bed size and room size.

Large Bedroom Area Rug Layouts

If you like the look of a large bedroom area rug and wish to have most of the floor covered, you can choose an area rug size that's big enough so that all the furniture in the room has all legs on top of the rug. In this design, make sure there's at least 2 or 3 feet extending out on each side of the bed so that you will always land on it when you get up in the morning.

An alternative is to have the area rug partially underneath the bed, displaying most prominently at the root of your bed. For this layout, your nightstands would sit on the bare floor and the rug would not extend to the back wall. As an example, if you have a queen size bed, look for an 8-foot by 10-foot area rug. Use a smaller size if you want less of the floor covered.

Bedroom Area Rugs - Using Runners

If your bed is too difficult to move or if you just prefer smaller area rugs, runners are a great option. They can be used on either side of the bed as well as the foot of the bed, if desired. You can even add runners to a room with wall-to-wall carpeting for a cozier surface upon waking. For your convenience, at Dean Flooring Company, our runners are sold both in standard sizes and by the linear foot. Choose from many styles, from a classic custom length runner to a standard size rustic runner. You'll find them in our Runner Rugs department.
