Choosing the correct rug size for your living, dining or bedroom is just as important as choosing the pattern and color of the rug. If the rug is too small or too large the entire room won’t flow as well. We have made a simple guide to help you when choosing the perfect fit and placement for your rug.
Rug size and placement for your Living Room
5′ x 8′ | 8′ x 10′ | 9′ x 12′
When choosing the correct size rug for your living room we say go big! When placing your furniture you want to have the front legs of the sofa and chairs on top of the rug. If you’re going with a larger rug make sure it is able to fit all of your furniture without looking crammed together. Your rug is for your entire living room set up not just your coffee table, if the rug only fits under the coffee table it is probably too small.
Rug size and placement for your Bedroom
5′ x 8′ – 6′ x 9′ (Twin Bed) | 8′ x 10′ (Queen Bed) | 9′ x 12′ (King Bed)
Bedrooms are pretty simple! To make sure your rug is the perfect fit it should extend past the sides of your bed and past the end of your bed. If the rug fits snug under the bed and extends past the bed frame then you’re most likely good!
Rug size and placement for your Dining Room
8′ x 10′ | 9′ x 12′ | 10’ (Round)
Choose a rug that extends about 3′ beyond the chairs when they are tucked under the table. Here is a little trick to tell if your rug is large enough- when you scoot your chair out, all 4 legs should remain on the rug, if the chair falls off the rug when you pull it out then you know it’s too small.
