What Size Rug Is Best For Your Bedroom?

Finding the best area rug for your bedroom is easy with our simple guide. Plan to have about two feet of rug to step on beside your bed. Find your mattress size below, and check out our suggested floor plans.

KING SIZE BED

King size shown is 76″ wide x 80″long

Rug Size 9′ x 12′

This is the ideal size for a king-sized bed, with room for a pair of nightstands to sit on the rug.

Rug Size 9′ x 12′

This isn’t the best size for a King-sized bed, as it only leaves 18″ of rug showing on either side of the bed. Nightstands would have to be less than 18″ wide.

Rug Size 9′ x 12′

Use a 3×5 area rug, or a 6 foot runner, on each side of a King sized bed

QUEEN SIZE BED

Standard Queen Size is 60″wide x 80″ long

Rug Size 9′ x 12′

You’ll have 42″ of rug showing on either side of the Queen-sized bed, and room for a bench on the rug at the foot of the bed.

Rug Size 8′ x 10′

This is the ideal size for a Queen-sized bed – you’ll have about two feet of rug showing on either side of the bed. If you place the rug in front of the nightstands, you’ll be able to fit a settee on the rug at the foot of the bed

Rug Size 6′ x 9′

This is the minimum size rug that will fit under a Queen bed; you’ll have 24″ of rug showing on either side. Place the rug in front of the nightstands.

Rug Size 2′ x 3′, or 3′ x 5′

A 3×5 rug works best either side of your Queen-sized bed, but you can use 2×3 scatter rugs also.

TWIN SIZE BED

Standard Twin Beds are 39″ wide x 75″ long

Rug Size 8′ x 10′

An 8×10 rug will easily cover the floor underneath twin beds and the corridor in the center. You’ll have room at the foot of the bed for a small bench or trunk too.

Rug Size 5′ x 8′

If you have a room with one twin-sized bed, a 5×8 rug is a great size to warm up open floor space. This size doesn’t work with a pair of twin beds.

Rug Size 3′ x 5′

To soften the area between a pair of twin beds, use a 3×5 rug.
