When we moved, the whole house was dirty. Walls were painted a very ugly beige and they were dirty as they could be. Well the whole house was dirty as it could be. Yuck! Anyway, after weeks of cleaning, we started to paint and on a very tight budget, buying all the furniture for the room. I went to a few outlet stores and found the king bed frame with platform for $175. The dresser, mirror and two night stands for $400 including delivery and the desk station for $175. The curtains I got on clearance for like $17 per panel. At the beginning I wasn’t sure but now I love them. The lamps are some lamps I had stored at my mom’s house. FH wants a rug and although I think it would look nice and tie everything together, I am afraid of having a big dust collector, um rug in our bedroom. I am very allergic and suffer from asthma. If health was not an issue. Rug or no rug? Pitch in please 🙂
Just noticed how camera angles can trick big time. This room is super big. The bed is king and looks like a full size! lol

Sporty-Bee: gorgeous room! you did a great job decorating! I do think a rug would tie it all together and warm up the floor a little bit, especially since it is a tile floor…. Rugs don’t have to be dust collectors and you dont have to get a big fluffy one either… a tighter knit rug wont collect dust/dander as much as a shag would….. plus if you vaccuming even once every 2 weeks you will be fine!

I think a dark rug would look great! It’s fantastic as is, though, too. 🙂

Makemeamrs: Thanks! Yes. I don’t mind a rug that you can easily vacuum frecuently. I have a small one in front of the sinks and it is perfect. He wanted a big shaggy style we saw but I wonder if they can easily be cleaned frecuently. Don’t seem too easy to vacuum. At least I know the plain, flat ones are super easy to clean.
ponyrider: Thanks 🙂 Yes, that is the second reason of the rug. He is from a country with very cold weather and he is used to having carpets. Here it is so darn hot no one uses carpets unless it’s for decoration purposes! ha

Wow that looks great! I would never guess you did it on a budget! I think it looks great without a rug, but you might like one just for comfort – personally I hate getting out of bed and putting my feet on a cold hard floor! 😉

Sporty-Bee: you did a great job- would never have guessed how little you spent just by looking at it! I would go wtih a rug, a tight-knit one for your allergies, just because I hate stepping out of bed onto cold floors and am generally not a fan of tiles in the bedroom. However, it looks awesome even without one!

I vote rug, but I’m from New England where it’s COLD and we don’t leave tile floors bare! I do think it will tie the room together, but the room looks beautiful as is. 🙂

Ummm…you did THAT on a budget?! It looks like it’s out of a decor magazine, you did a phenominal job. I really love the color of the accent wall.
I’d say it looked perfect as is and only get a rug if the cold tile bothers you.

Sporty-Bee: Wow! You can come and decorate for me anytime! The art is at the proper height. The lamps are tall enough to read in bed. You almost never see that here on WeddingBee.
An area rug would add some warmth to the floor Given that health IS an issue, if he insists on a rug, I would get something like a cotton dhurrie that can be laundered, even though that would have to be at a commercial laundry due to the size of the rug.

Bedrooms NEED rug in my opinion or it’s just not cozy.

Are you in FL by chance? I lived in FL and there’s a lot of tile there! I really liked it because it was so easy to clean! Personally I’d want a rug to soften up the tile look. But only one that you could easily clean in terms of your allergies. Pretty room!

Oh my gosh! That room is FABULOUS!! I cannot BELIEVE how little you spent and how amazing everything looks! WOW! Seriously, it looks as if you spent thousands!
I personally would need a rug in my bedroom, but if you’d rather not deal with the allergy issues, it look great without one.

Amazing! I think it looks great how it is, but a nice, fluffy rug would definitely tie everything together and look amazing.

It looks great. I would definitely add a nice fluffly rug for warmth and to make it look a little more home-y though. If you vacume regularly it will be fine. You can also get them cleaned. It’s really not a big deal as long as you keep the house clean. (After all, you have to vacume and the wash the floor regularly, so you’ll be able to beat it out and vacume it then as well.)
