You’ve already overcome one hurdle in choosing the right rug – you’ve picked the bedroom as its new home. The next step, then, is to make sure you choose a rug that becomes a big part of your everyday routine. After all, it’s likely that bedroom rugs will be the first thing we rest our feet on each morning and the last thing we stand on every night. Here are some tips on making sure you make the right choice.
Being sure of the size
Most bedrooms will only have room for the one rug – and one bed, for that matter. With the bed usually being the centrepiece of the room, your rug will either be underneath it or placed independently elsewhere in the room. As a rule of thumb, bedroom rugs beneath a bed should extend to two feet or more beyond the edge of the bed frame.
Elsewhere in the room, the rug could, of course, be smaller – for instance, if you need a rug to sit comfortably before a dressing table, and its size should really be smaller than the bed itself. As we’ve already mentioned, that’s the centrepiece.
Choosing the right material
Unless you’re in and out of your bedroom all day long, your bedroom rug likely won’t get a whole lot of traffic throughout the day. This means you can afford to be a little more lavish when it comes to your choice of material. Naturally, the deeper the rug, the tougher it can be to keep completely clean – so, do be careful with bedtime snacks and breakfast in bed.
As an alternative, however, choose a rug with a finer weave and finish that won’t become too dishevelled should you need to run a vacuum cleaner over it.
Picking the ideal design
It’s easy enough to spot a rug that simply catches your attention and immediately has you imagining it in your bedroom. Furthermore, in the imagination, that rug is likely to look astonishingly good. In reality, though, it might look slightly awkward and out of place. This is actually one of the reasons why our own, bespoke bedroom rugs could make a big difference.
If the rug you choose is just that little bit too big, small or out of sync with the decor of your bedroom, you could be left with a large, albeit comfortable problem. In many cases, the rug itself can be the item that commands the most attention in the bedroom, leaving you with a few interior design problems that won’t be gone any time soon.
Opting for bespoke
Thankfully, there is a way to get all of the above just right without compromising on size, quality or design. If any of the artwork you see on our site jumps out at you, and you immediately begin to imagine your bedroom dressed in that particular, attention-grabbing design, then let us know.
Each design can be recreated into bedroom rugs or rugs for elsewhere in the home. Furthermore, these rugs can all be made fully customised to suit your room exquisitely. Your rug will be handmade to order, ideally sized and enhanced with colours of your choosing. Plus, we can even send you a CGI image of how your bedroom rug will look in your room beforehand.
