Finding the Perfect Size Rug for your Bedroom

Ever wonder what size rug you should use under your bed or in your bedroom? With our current assortment of hand knotted rugs and our design staff we are sure you will find something at Critelli’s or Transitions that will make your bedroom look beautiful.

There are many ways to lay out a rug in a bedroom, it all depends on your bed size and room size. Here are a few tips and tricks to make sure that rug looks great. 



For smaller rooms, a 5’ x 8’ rug would work well under a queen size bed. If you have a larger area, opt for a 9' x 12' rug this will provide more square footage of softness.  

When using a bigger rug in your bedroom make sure you leave space to place your dresser. Remember, you should have around 12" - 18" of space between the rug and the wall.

Below you can see a room with a smaller rug versus a room with a larger rug. 


Ultimately an 8’ x 10’ rug will fit perfectly under both a queen and king size bed.


If you did not want to cover a lot of floor space in your bedroom there is always the option of adding a runner to either side of the bed. This will still add a lot of comfort to your room!
