Laying down a large , room-sized rug, one that will cover the majority of the surface area of the floor will give the room more of a 'wide open' feeling, this works really well in rooms with high or vaulted ceilings. 

To do this, measure the entire length and width of your bedroom and then deduct between one and two feet (12-24 inches) from those dimensions, purchase an area rug that comes closest to the size you've calculated.

Placing an area rug beneath a bed in an offset manner provides maximum visual appeal. To do this, position the area rug beneath your bed, no less than half the distance from the headboard, but as far as just placing about 1/3 of the rug underneath. This placement allows you to display the rug's design prominently.

3. Two Rugs Are Better Than One

Laying down two distinctly different area rugs in a bedroom can help to break up the monotony of a large space, giving the room added interest and color. 

To do this, choose two area rugs with different colors and/or designs. Placement should be determined based on your furniture and decor, try different placements until you find the one that feels the best to you.

Small bedrooms are cozy, but can be made even cozier when a wool area rug is added; rugs not only add style to a room, but also warmth. 

To do this, choose a rug in one of the small standard sizes, like a 6x9 or a 5x7, whichever will best suit the dimensions of your room; a rug with a smaller pattern is best for small rooms.
