Custom & Standard Rug Sizes

Rug Sizing Guide

We've got the answers to all your rug sizing questions for any room in your home.

Living Room

If your sofa and armchairs are against the walls, the rug size you need should go under the front leg of all large pieces (red outline) or, if you would like more of your floor to show, small enough that none of the furniture legs overlap it (lavender outline in the rug size guide).

If your furniture is floating in the room, the ideal rug will be big enough to go under all four legs of each large piece (red outline) or again, if you prefer to see the floor, small enough that none of the seating pieces sit on it (lavender outline).

Smaller rugs can be used under a coffee table or to define a seating area.

Hallway

A long central runner can be used down the center of a hallway with furniture and accent pieces placed either on both sides or along tone focal wall. Design tip: Keep furniture rested on the bare floor. While widths can range from 2 feet to over 3 feet and lengths can vary based on your hallway, a custom rug allows you to find the perfect fit.

Kitchen

In a busy kitchen a small rug placed in front of the sink is ideal. If you have a galley kitchen or center island a decorative runner can fill up the space nicely, while providing a nice cushion underfoot.

Dining Room

Make sure to maximize your rug so that your table and chairs clearly stay on your rug. You will need at least 24” beyond the table on all sides to accommodate your chairs when pushed out. For a smaller room, see that the front legs of your chairs stay on the rug 6" when pushed out.

A round rug nicely completes a round table.

Bedroom

Your bedroom rug should extend about 36” around the sides of your bed. As a general guideline standard sizes are 8’x10’ (queen) and 9’x12’ (king)

Alternatively runners on both sides of the bed are a great option providing a cozy feel underfoot.

Custom Sizing
