Size Matters!

The floor is often considered the fifth wall of the room. Choosing the right sized rug will define a seating area, make a room look larger and anchor the furniture in the room.

 

LIVING ROOM

BEST CHOICE: choose the size based on your room size, leaving a perimeter of 18” to 24” inches of hardwood or ceramic. This guideline leaves you flexibility to shape the feel and look of the room.

9' x 12' or 10' x 14'

 

 

 

GOOD CHOICE: choose a rug on which all of the front legs of the furniture will sit on the rug.

8' x 10' or 9' x 12'

 

DINING ROOM

Choose a rug size based on your table and chairs. You'll want a rug large enough that you can pull chairs away from the dining table and have those chairs stay on the rug.

8' x 10' or 9' x 12'

 

 

 

BEDROOM

Choose a rug that will both act as a focal point in the room and provide a soft spot for your feet to land every morning.

CHILD'S ROOM and BABY NURSERY

Consider that your child will be crawling and/or playing on the rug, which will provide a soft surface for those tiny toes and feet! A larger rug will provide more space for play!

If you want most of the furniture on the rug, choose a larger rug.
