But with so many options to shop, it's essential to understand the fundamental principles of how to style area and throw rugs in your bedroom.
Not sure what pieces best fit your aesthetic and layout when shopping for bedroom rugs? Don't worry; we have got you covered. Check out the tips below for ideas and inspiration as you choose the best rugs to buy for your space.
Styling a Bedroom Rug
Whether you want to completely transform your bedroom style or just need a layer of visual and literal warmth to ground the space, purchasing a big rug for your bedroom can offer a ton of impact with a simple touch. The most common place to style bedroom area rugs is underneath the bed. This gives your feet a soft place to tread when you wake up or climb into bed and helps anchor accent furniture. In a smaller room, it can help tie the entire layout together. In a larger space, a bedroom area rug can help set off a bed, night tables, and a bench with a harmonious balance.
With a queen or king bed, you can choose a standard size 8' x 10 'rug or flank your bed with two smaller rugs. Be sure to leave 8-10 inches of breathing room between your rug and your nightstands. For two twin beds, you can choose an 8' x 10' rug to group the beds or place a smaller rug between them.

Making the Most of Small Bedroom Rugs
Layering small bedroom rugs can offer a soft touch of style throughout the room. Just as with shopping for big rugs for your bedroom, you want to think about anchoring and augmenting space. Try styling a medium-sized round rug—like this traditionally inspired Mina Rug—at the center of your room to evoke an elegant look. Or try a couple of smaller modern bedroom rugs thoughtfully placed throughout the room to inspire a chic retreat feel. Styling multiple rugs can help break up a large room, making it feel like a cozy collection of spaces.
If your dresser doubles as a vanity for morning and nighttime routines, you might consider styling something durable with an easy-care appeal like our wool-blend Joelle Rug. A small throw rug in a bedroom corner can also be an anchor for a reading nook outfitted with a cozy lounge chair and a floor lamp or side table. This offers an elevating touch underfoot and ties the pieces together to make the corner feel more intentional and less like an afterthought that gets covered in clothes throughout the week. You want to use medium-sized and smaller rugs for definition and comfort.
However you style them, bedroom rugs allow you the flexibility to showcase the nuances of your design aesthetic. From strikingly modern guest room rugs to luxuriously plush rugs for your bedroom, these pieces set the tone for a calm and collected space. Loved ones and visitors can immediately get a sense of who you are by seeing how you have utilized this foundational layer of decor to build on your home's look.
