How to Choose a Rug for Your Bedroom

Area rugs can provide you with a surfeit of benefits in a bedroom.  They add style and a bit of personality, but they are also functional.  You can use them to hide stains on your carpet, or as a buffer for noise.  They also provide you with warmth for bare feet, while they define the specific areas in the room.

Style

When choosing an area rug for your bedroom, it is important to think about balance as well as your personal style.  If you happen to have a lot of patterns and colors in the room, you might want to choose a rug that has natural, more muted colors, such as those found in rugs made from natural materials.  If you have a solid color theme in your room, you might want to choose a color that will not fade into the background, but will stand out and draw the eye.

Materials

Aside from styles and colors, you will be able to find area rugs made from a variety of materials.  You might be tempted to go for a fuzzy faux rug, but you also need to think about the amount of traffic it will see.  Fur and silk rugs might add a bit of shimmer to your room, but if you have kids and/or pets, it won’t be long before those materials begin to show a lot of wear.  Consider rugs made from natural materials if you want them to last.  Wool and sisal rugs can stand up to the traffic while also being simple to maintain and easy to clean.

Rugs Before Accessories

When you are looking for the ideal rug for your bedroom, you might want to find the rug before you start looking for accessories to coordinate with it.  Getting the perfect area rug that will coordinate with the décor in the room can make a massive impact that will tie the entire room together.  However, if you wait to choose the rug after you have added that last throw pillow, you might end up spending months to find the right rug to coordinate with the rest of the décor.
