Rug Size Guides
There’s nothing quite like curling your toes into a soft rug in the bedroom. Rugs make everything cozier, adding character, color, and texture to bring your interior decor to life. And if you’re lucky enough to come home to a King bed, spanning 76 inches wide and 80 long, you’ll want everything to be perfect.
A King bed works best in a room that’s at least 10’ x 12’, but they’re often used in spaces around 13’ x 13’ or larger. Usually, the King bed is positioned centered, against one wall to make the best use of the space.
The right area rug size for King beds depends on the size of your room and the look you have in mind. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you determine what’s best for your space.
In this guide, we’ll help you determine what size rug to get for a King bed in any space, with styling that’s as full of life as you are. Keep reading to figure out what size rug should go under a King bed in your bedroom.
Let’s say that the basic King-sized bed is 76” x 80” and it’s placed against one wall, centered in a medium-sized 11’ x 14’ bedroom.
The best rug size for a King bed with these basic measurements would likely be around 9’ x 12’. This rug size will leave about 1’ of space between the walls and the edges of the rug, covering almost the entire floor.
While the back two legs of the bed frame would not sit on the area rug, it would provide a soft spot to touch down in the morning on all three sides of the bed.
King beds are sometimes found in spacious bedrooms around 16’ x 18’ or larger. Deciding what size rug for under a King bed in a room of this size isn’t difficult – you have wiggle room with more square footage.
You might opt for a rug that’s around 12’ x 14’, with enough space to hold the bed and both nightstands, while still padding much of the room. Alternately, you could size up to 14’ x 16’ or down to something as small as two 2’ x 9’ runners, depending on the look you’re going for.
In larger bedrooms, you might consider a California King, Texas King, or Alaskan King if you’d like a bigger mattress size.
