How to Select the Right Size Rug for your Living Room

Some Things to Think About when Sizing a Rug for Your Living Room

  • Consider your furniture and take note of the various layouts.
  • Your rug helps define the living area.
  • The most common mistake is going too small.
  • In an open-plan space the rug should be large enough to accommodate most furniture.

Tips to Remember:

  • Both 6'x9' and 9'x12' are standard rug size selections.
  • However, a custom area rug option allows you to get the right size.
  • If your sofa or armchairs are against the wall, the rug should go under the front leg of all large pieces.

Helpful Measuring Tip:

  • Measure out your desired rug size with painter's tape to get a sense of how it will feel.
