A bedroom is more than just a place to sleep—it's a sanctuary, a space to unwind and recharge. And what better way to elevate the coziness and style of your bedroom than with a beautiful rug? Rugs can add warmth and create a sense of home in any space. But how do you go about placing a rug under your bed without the hassle of moving furniture? Don't worry, we've got you covered.

Laying a Rug Down With an Off-Ground Bed

If you have a platform bed frame that elevates your bed off the ground, placing a rug underneath can make your room feel well-designed and intentional. Just follow these steps:

  1. Connect the non-slip cushion pad pieces together like a puzzle.
  2. Unfold your Tumble rug on top of the non-slip pad, ensuring the corners align.
  3. Tuck the non-slip pad corners into the rug's pocket to secure it.
  4. Slide the rug under your bed, lifting the corners of the frame if necessary.
  5. Lift the foot end of the bed frame to slide the last corner of the rug under. Depending on the size of the rug, it may not reach the end of the bed or extend a few feet beyond. Use the size guide below to help you choose the right rug for your space.

These steps can be easily accomplished with the help of a friend or roommate, and the whole process takes just a few minutes. Transform your bedroom into a serene oasis with a Tumble rug that brings a new focal point and statement to your space.

Laying a Rug Down With a Floor Bed

Floor beds offer a convenient and modern sleeping solution, but placing a rug under them may require some extra effort. Follow these steps:

  1. Lift the mattress and bed frame off the ground, giving yourself enough clearance to roll the rug out. You may need to disassemble the bed frame into several pieces.
  2. Set up the non-slip pad by fitting the pieces together. Fold the rug over and align the edges, then tuck the non-slip pad into the corner pockets.
  3. Carefully move the bed frame and mattress back onto the rug, ensuring not to drag the rug around.

Although it may take a bit more time and effort than with an off-ground bed, placing a rug under a floor bed is still achievable. Just be cautious while moving heavy objects and ensure that the rug is positioned exactly where you want it to avoid multiple adjustments.

Rug Sizing

At Tumble, we offer rugs in a variety of sizes to suit any bedroom layout. From runners to large area rugs, you'll find something that works perfectly for your space. Whether you prefer a traditional Persian design or a sleek modern geometric pattern, we've got you covered.

For most beds, a larger area rug, such as a 6x9' or 8x10', is ideal as it covers the entire surface area and leaves enough of the edges visible. We believe that your rug should be showcased, not hidden. Additionally, every machine-washable Tumble rug comes with a custom rug pad to keep it securely in place.

The Right Rug for You

When choosing a rug for your bedroom, consider both the aesthetics and functionality. You want a rug that complements your space and style while being easy to maintain. Tumble rugs are designed to be conveniently removed and replaced for vacuuming and washing, even when placed under your bed. Say goodbye to the hassle of professional movers.

Placing a rug under your bed is a simple way to add that "wow factor" to your bedroom. With Tumble's extensive selection of area rugs, you're sure to find the perfect match for your decor. And don't worry about the process—it can be accomplished in just a few minutes by following the steps outlined above. You're well on your way to creating the bedroom of your dreams!
