Bedroom Rug Styling Tips

Before you pick your bedroom rug, take a look at these top tips from our expert stylists.


Pile height

Pick a higher pile height (25mm+) if you’re looking for a comfy, textured rug, especially if you will be sitting on it in a cosy reading corner, or if it’s the first thing you’ll stand on when you get up in the morning.

If you want something that is lower maintenance, a lower pile (10 - 25mm) will be easier to hoover and shake off, but will still provide that sought-after layered look that rugs provide.


Which colour you choose will depend on your personal taste and the existing colour

scheme of your room. However, we would recommend…

  • Neutral colours - white, beige, or grey if you want something that will withstand any design changes to your bedroom
  • Bold colours - reds, blues, or yellows if you are looking for a statement rug, and want to draw the eye to the lower half of your bedroom
  • Monochromatic - pick the key colour of your room and get a rug in the same shade if you prefer a more uniform, consistent look


When it comes to bedroom rugs, size matters. Measure your space carefully and choose a size based on this. A rug that is too big might draw attention away from other design features, whereas a rug that is too small will drown in a large room.


1. How To Position Area Rug In A Bedroom
