Picking A Small Bedroom Rug
“So many folks will opt out of purchasing a larger rug because of costs or for fear that it'll make the room feel smaller,” says Shea. This space here shows us how to do it the right way.

“In a bedroom, the rug should be wide enough that it either aligns perfectly with the outer edge of your nightstand or goes past the nightstand by three inches. Make sure it extends a minimum of two feet in front of your bed. The larger the rug, if perfectly scaled, will make a room feel so much bigger and put together!”
