Five Ways to Drape a Throw Rug on a Bed

A throw rug is a cosy way to add warmth to your bedroom through the use of textiles. Throw rugs are a versatile décor item that can be used in bedrooms and living rooms. There are no right or wrong ways to lay a blanket, but we have found five ways to drape a throw rug on a bed to give you inspiration on how you can dress up your bedroom ready for winter.

1. Fold your throw rug at the foot foot of the bed. Look for knits and thin rugs as opposed to a chunky cable knit if you are wanting to try this style.

2. Drape and tuck your throw rug at the end of the bed. This works well for a patterned, high contrast throw.

3. Do a 3/4 lay or half lay of the throw rug on the bed. This works best with a thick, cable knit throw.

4. Drape your throw rug diagonally. All throws can be draped diagonally. Balance the look with well placed cushions for a relaxed feel.
