6. Choose a luxurious rugRugs are another way to add an indulgent feel to your master bedroom. A gorgeous rug is not only a stylish accent in a room, it also boosts comfort underfoot.“Rugs under the bed are a great way to introduce texture and luxury to a room,” says Oldham. “Handmade low-pile rugs make you feel like you are walking on soft clouds of cotton balls. They are perfect for stepping onto when you are getting out of bed on a cold winter’s day.”Connors recommends adding a woven rug in a muted colourway and a simple, monochromatic design as this will bring understated elegance to your bedroom – while feeling fabulous beneath your feet. “A beautiful, chunky knitted-wool rug adds a sense of luxury with its over-scale weave, while a style with a blend of wool and art silk will add a luxurious sheen to the space,” adds Wigginton.Finding the Right Size Rug for Any Room in the House
