6 Reasons Your Bedroom Needs a Rug

bedroom

Pretty much any room in your home can benefit from a rug, but they are especially nice in a bedroom. Your bedroom is the most intimate, cozy room in the house, after all! Bedroom rug ideas take many forms to be it as wall-to-wall coverings, layered on top of carpet, or large area rugs, and they can instantly add excitement to an otherwise simple space. That’s why the list of basic bedroom essentials pretty much always includes a bed, dresser, nightstand, and a rug!

In case you’re not totally sold on the idea yet, here are 6 reasons why your bedroom needs a rug.

bedroom with nightstand1. They Keep Your Feet Cozy

It’s no secret that carpeted floors are a lot softer than hardwood or tile – not to mention more comfortable to walk and stand on. Rugs feel warm and cozy on your feet and the softness gives your floors the flexibility to absorb the weight of your footsteps. This makes for a gentler surface to tip-top across with bare feet. Plus, we can all agree that it’s much more pleasant to step out of bed onto something plush instead of hardwood.

2. They Reduce Noise

Another main benefit of a rug is that it will significantly dampen the noise in your space. It’s quieter inside your house without the sounds of footsteps clicking back and forth across the bedroom and it also makes your room less echoey. Hard surfaces don’t absorb sound in the same way that carpet does, so you’ll notice the volume in your bedroom will be softer. Plus, those noisy neighbors downstairs won’t sound as loud when you’re trying to snooze.

3. They Add Personality

Maybe the most obvious reason why you need a rug in your bedroom is to show off your style! A rug adds color, pattern, and texture to a space to give it a more polished and personal look. It’s also a super-easy way to refresh your space without breaking the bank! A new rug can totally change the look and feel of your room in a flash.

4. They Help Define the Space

You can use bedroom rugs to define or separate your space. This is especially useful in studio apartments where you might want the bedroom section to feel separate from your living area. And if your bedroom is on the larger side, a rug under the bed can help “zone” and define the space. If you already have carpet, this can also be a great way to add contrast and create further definition between particular areas.

5. They Protect Your Floors

If you have beautiful floors it might seem counterintuitive to cover them up with a rug. But, as you can see, there are lots of reasons why a bedroom needs a rug and you can rest assured knowing that it is actually helping to keep your floors safe and scuff-free! A bedroom rug is the easiest way to protect floors, especially in high-traffic areas, from scratches and scuffs.

6. They Tie the Room Together

A rug is absolutely one of our bedroom must-haves because, without it, a room can look unfinished. If you’ve ever walked into a bedroom with bare floors, you know the feeling. It can appear stark and scattered, as though the furniture is floating in the room. A rug is a perfect one-step formula for making any bedroom (or any room, really) look pulled together and calm, perfect for getting a good night’s sleep.

5 Reasons To Love Indoor-Outdoor Rugs

When it comes to decor pieces that do it all, we like to think of indoor-outdoor rugs as a triple threat. Why? They’re affordable, stylish, and wondrously durable. They’re made to survive the elements outdoors, making them equally durable for the indoors. And they come in a wide array of colorful styles, so they can really ground the look in a room.

If you’re still not convinced, here are five reasons for why we love indoor-outdoor rugs that might just inspire you to consider one for your home!

indoor-outdoor rugs1. They’re Easy To Clean

Probably the best part about indoor-outdoor rugs is that they’re low-maintenance when it comes to cleaning. Red wine spill? No problem. Spaghetti sauce accident? Just wipe it right off with some soap and a damp cloth.

To give your indoor-outdoor rug a more thorough clean, simply take it outside and hose it down with some mild soap and scrub it out with a brush. Most are made of synthetic fibers, so it’s virtually impossible to ruin the rug with too much washing or scrubbing.

indoor-outdoor rugs2. They’re Affordable

We all know rugs designed to last can be pretty expensive. Indoor-outdoor rugs, on the contrary, happen to have a much wider range of affordable options. And it’s usually based on the size of the rug rather than the weave or design.

Plus, they often look just as great as indoor rugs, except you’re guaranteed a piece that’s made to last.

indoor-outdoor rugs3. They’re Durable

Speaking of lasting design, it goes without saying that indoor-outdoor rugs are totally awesome because of how strong they are. Not only can they handle the occasional spill (see point number 1), they can also stand up to crazy foot traffic in the busiest areas of the home, like the entry or the family room.

Our favorite ways to use them? Lay down one or two indoor-outdoor runners in your kitchen, hallway, or bathroom—just make sure you keep them in place with rug pads!

indoor-outdoor rugs4. They’re Great for Kids and Pets

Another place where indoor-outdoor rugs can make a huge difference is in a playroom or kids room. Pick an option that’s soft enough for children to crawl around, stomp, and spread out.

Plus they’re safeguarded against juice spills and food crumbs. If you have pets in the home, those paws and claws won’t be a problem with one of these rugs.

indoor-outdoor rugs5. They Come in Lots of Styles

It’s often surprising to see all the different stylish options for indoor-outdoor rugs on the market. There are endless options for you to choose from! Whether it’s a colorful, fun traditional pattern, a super neutral, minimal design, or a bold geometric graphic piece, you’re bound to find one that suits your taste.

The Paramount measures in at 7’9″ x 11’2″, making it slightly longer and narrower than your standard rug. This is great if your space happens to be on the longer/narrower side, but might not be the best fit if you’re looking for a true 8′ x 10′ rug.
