need help with picking size/placement of rug

ericakFebruary 24, 2013
My daughter has a loft bed with built in stairs and desk unerneath(by Berg furniture) to save space in her small room. I want to buy a rug but not sure where to place. Should any of the rug be under the stairs/ loft area? Should it all start at base of stairs and what shape should it be? The rug there now is too small(4 1/2x 5 1/2)

Because of your awkward space (you basically have a U shape) I see two options:

You can either go with two complementary rugs (colour, pattern etc): one that fits under her bed/desk area and the other perpendicular.

Or choose a large long rug that fits near the window, to the bottom of the step and to the wall opposite her bed.

I would try turning the rug 90 degrees so it goes inside the desk area and another rug by the window.
