How to Put a Jute Rug Under Your Bed

How to Put a Jute Rug Under Your Bed

Following these steps will help you find the right jute rug for your bedroom and put it down where it will look best.


Choosing a rug to go under your bed requires a few special considerations. You’ll want the rug to be very soft, for example, because you’ll be stepping on it with your bare feet. You’ll also need it to provide good traction so you don’t slip getting out of bed or knock it out of place. 

Then there are the aesthetic considerations. How do you find a rug that can do all that and complete the look of your bedroom?

Jute rugs are an oft-overlooked choice for bedroom rugs, but they shouldn’t be. The right jute rug could be the perfect fit for your bedroom, fulfilling all your practical and aesthetic needs and providing the perfect padding for tired feet at the end of the day.

And the best part? Choosing the right under-bed jute rug is easy. Just follow these steps.

Why jute?

Jute rugs are a great choice for under your bed for several reasons:

  • Softness: Jute is one of the softest natural area rugs available today, making it perfect for when you want something plush and comfortable to step on with your bare feet.
  • Durability: Jute fibers are naturally very tough, especially when tightly woven together. Your jute bedroom rug will withstand feet, paws, furniture, and all kinds of other wear and tear.
  • Texture: Woven jute rugs have a unique and beautiful texture that will help your bedroom feel even cozier and more comfortable.
  • Shapes: Jute rugs come in a wide variety of customizable shapes, making it easy to find the right fit for your bedroom.

Choosing a jute rug to put under your bed

Step 1: Decide on placement

First, decide exactly how you want your rug to look under your bed. If you want your rug to frame every side of your bed equally, for example, then you’ll want a rug that’s at least 12 inches wider than your bed on each side.

Step 2: Measure the area where you want your rug

Next, measure the full length and width of the area where you plan to place your rug. To ensure your measurements are as accurate as possible, move your bed and any other furniture in the area out of the way first. Find more detailed instructions on how to measure a bedroom rug here.

Step 3: Choose a style & color

Jute rugs come in a wide variety of color, style, texture, and shape options. As you’re measuring the space where you want to place your rug, consider what kind of rug would look best in the space. You could complement your flooring, furniture, or bedsheets, or choose a soft, richly-textured rug to lend your bedroom a cozy, homey look.

Step 4: Customize to your parameters

When you’ve settled on a size and style, you can use our jute rug customization options to order the exact jute rug you want for your bedroom in a few simple steps.

Putting your jute rug under your bed

Step 1: Clear the area

First, completely clear your bedroom floor. The last thing you want is to accidentally trap something underneath your rug and have to start the whole process over again. Keep a close eye out for wires or other important utilities you won’t want to cover up with your rug. 

While you’re at it, this is the perfect moment to vacuum or deep clean your bedroom floor. 

Step 2: Get help positioning the rug under the bed

We always recommend having at least one other person help you move your bed. Depending on where you want your rug, you could either move your entire bed frame out of the way or simply lift it up and roll the rug beneath the bed. 

After you’re sure you have the rug right where you want it, set the bed back down on top of it to make sure you like the way it looks.

Step 3: Test the rug for safety

After you put the bed back down, carefully check the rug for possible hazards. You shouldn’t be able to move the whole rug around with your feet, and the rug should be completely flush with the floor with no bumps or curls. If you notice any potential hazards, fix them right away.

You should also make sure you don’t leave candles or other potential fire starters where they could fall onto your rug. 

Step 4: Reassemble

When you have everything where you want it to be, reassemble your bedroom. Check on the rug for safety one more time, and you’re good to go!
