3 Ways to Use Area Rugs In Your Bedroom

Think about your bedroom. Right now, at this exact moment, is it how you want it? Does it look the way you want it to? Does it reflect your style? Is it somewhere you want to spend a lot of time? If you answered any of these questions ‘no’ then it might be time to make a change. That change could be huge, like buying new furniture or painting the walls. Or you could change only a couple of small things. Things that would vastly improve the feel of your space. Maximum impact, low effort. Oddly enough, one of the ways to do this is by purchasing custom made rugs. Aesthetically, an area rug draws your eye and grounds your space. Placing custom size area rugs strategically in your bedroom can drastically improve the overall feel. Here are some ways you can use custom made area rugs to transform your bedroom into an oasis.  
  • Under the bedThis is the most common place to put an area rug in bedrooms. It can feel counter-intuitive to place a rug where it will be almost entirely obscured from view, but an area rug will frame the bed and create a focal point in the room. Finding a carpet that compliments your bedding either in color or pattern can add fun to a bland space.
 
  • On the side of the bedThis is a newer design idea. Placing a runner type carpet next to your bed along the path you walk can be a great way to add to a zen oasis feeling to your space. If you’re looking for a bedroom that relaxes you a side-carpet next to your bed can be a great way to improve your sensory experience. Getting a fluffy carpet runner to walk on with bare feet. Remember it’s not just about how it looks, but also how it feels.
 
  • Under a sitting areaIf you have a large enough space, adding a sitting space with custom made rugs can transform your room from just a space to sleep in but also to relax with a nice book. Make sure to get an area rug large enough that it sits well beneath all the furniture with enough left around the outside to display the rug itself and frame the furniture.
  Studies have found that rugs are likely to reduce allergens within your home. In Sweden, they noticed a correlation where a 70% reduction in carpet use resulted in a 30% increase in allergic reactions. Adding an area rug to your space isn’t just adding to the aesthetic but also helping to improve your health. The kind of rug isn’t entirely important for the impact. Whether you get a braided rug or a plush fluffy rug, getting the one that feels right for the decor in your bedroom is more important than trying to find the same rug everyone else already has. One of the benefits of ordering custom made rugs is the ability to define not only the size but the design as well.
