We’ve championed the idea of instant bedroom updates with fresh quilt covers and cushions in on-trend shades. But what about that all important winter warmth? What’s the go-to accessory when it comes to making an affordable decorative statement in the bedroom with the added benefit of inviting texture? A rug!

Benefits
You’ll love the instant underfoot warmth a rug brings. Bedrooms with floorboards in particularly will benefit from this cosy comfort that eliminates cold winter surfaces. You’ll revel in a fresh injection of colour and texture to reinvent the space, and admire its a ability to seamlessly frame your room, tying furniture and decorative elements together for a complete look.

Sizing and style
‘The softer the better when it comes to bedroom rugs,’ says The Home rug buyer Emma Blomfield, who suggests opting for a thick pile rug for an indulgent touch. When it comes to size, you’ll want to work with 200 x 300cm and above for queen and king beds. Measure up your space for a clear understanding of what you’re after before you hit the computer to shop.

Placement
Position a rug halfway or two thirds down your bed so it pops generously out either side. Alternatively, mix and match runners along the sides and/or foot of the bed for a soft spot to land when you wake up. If you have a bench or seating area at the end of your bed, you’ll want to consider a larger rug to ensure these furniture items sit atop it, too.
