Create a Vibrant and Stylish Bedroom with Aesthetic Rugs

Keep these practical and aesthetic design considerations in mind to find the bedroom rug of your dreams.



No matter your bedroom’s aesthetic, the right rug can take it to the next level. Rugs are an easy way to complement and enhance the existing art or decor in your bedroom, or they can function as inspiration to redecorate and try pursuing an all-new aesthetic.

Not sure quite where to start? Try keeping these design considerations in mind as you begin your search.


First thing’s first: where do you want your rug to go? Do you want it to go directly under your bed? Off to either side? Or maybe under a wardrobe or leading into your closet?

As you start thinking about where you’re going to put your rug, arrange your bedroom’s furniture and decor exactly the way you’ll want it when you’ve added the rug. This will give you an idea of what kind of space you’re working with and what will look best in it.


Once you’ve arranged your room the way you want it, measure the space where you’d like to place the rug. If you want an area rug to look balanced under your bed, measure at least 18” (for a King or Queen size bed) or 12” (for a Full or Twin size bed) beyond the edge of the bed. 

With the help of Sisal Rugs Direct, you’ll be able to customize a rug of any size for your bedroom. You could also conduct our guide on how to measure a bedroom rug for options and inspiration on size and placement. For example, if you have a queen size bed and you want to put a rug under it, most designers recommend an 8’ x 10’ rug. This will correctly support the bed while providing enough extra space to make the rug visible. 

Of course, if you have your own ideas about placement or you want a bedroom rug that doesn’t match up with the usual sizes, you could always customize one for yourself.


This is where your aesthetic preferences will really come into play. There’s more to consider than you might think. 

For example, do you want to complement your bedroom’s existing art and decor? If so, try picking a color and style that matches or accents your flooring and wall color. On the other hand, choosing a more vibrant color might make a brilliant contrast if your floor and walls are in muted colors. You could also accent your bedspread or even pick a color based on a favorite art piece or piece of furniture. 

Of course, you don’t need to settle for a single color. Plenty of rug designs come in multiple colors, all of which could help accent and complement aspects of your bedroom’s decor in different ways. If you want to take your options up a notch, you could even customize your choice with a distinctive rug border in a different color than the main rug.


You’ll have to consider both the practical and the aesthetic when choosing your bedroom rug’s material. A few of the most beloved material options for bedroom rugs include:

Wool: Wool rugs look great in bedrooms because of their soft, rugged and textured aesthetic. They’re a great way to make your bedroom feel even more cozy and warm. The textures tend to accent other textured decor, too, so wool might look especially good if you have hardwood, plush carpet, wallpaper, or furniture with elaborate trimming. If your bedroom has a slippery floor, we recommend adding a rug pad to your wool rug.

Sisal: Sisal rugs are soft, durable, and richly textured, making them a great choice for bedrooms with intricate decor. Sisal is also very pet-friendly, so if your furry friends sleep with you, a sisal rug might last longer than others.

Polypropylene: Polypropylene is a non-toxic synthetic fiber that looks like sisal. Polypropylene rugs can come in a wide variety of patterns, colors, and textures, making them great for when you want to customize to your heart’s content.

When you’ve settled on the aesthetic and you’re ready to rug shop, Sisal Rugs Direct can’t wait to help. Check out our full custom rug collection to get started designing the bedroom rug of your dreams.
