Decor Q&A: Bedroom Flooring?


The Nest Q&A

What flooring or rug is best for a bedroom?


The ideal floor is either wall-to-wall carpet to keep your feet happy or wood flooring (try eco-friendly bamboo) with a plush rug on top, like a fun shag or patterned sisal (if you don't mind the texture). Since most bedroom floors are covered mostly by the, uh, bed, where should you put the rug? Position a rectangular shaped one so at least two feet of the edge can be seen from under the foot and either side of the bed. And remember: When you’re testing a rug for your bedroom, take your shoes and socks off and test it barefoot so you know what it will feel like under your feet when you wake up.
