The Right Rug Size For Each Room

Generally, when it comes to design with rugs, there are no set rules. We encourage you to experiment and discover what works for you and your home, depending on your space and of course your preference.

How to Select the Right Size Rug

A well-chosen area rug can add warmth and personality to a room. It can also serve to visually anchor your furniture layout and absorb noise in high-traffic rooms. But, while shopping based on appearance is often easy, finding the perfect rug size to suit your room is often much less straightforward. A rug that's too small will look lost in your space, while a rug that's too large will make your room look crowded and overly busy. So, it's crucial to find a size that will fit with the shape and dimensions of your room, and the positioning of your furniture.

Here's a handy area rug guide below to help you find the right area rug for your space!

Living Room

Dining Room

Consider the shape of your dinner table to help determine the size of your seating area. Your rug should extend at least 2'-3' around all edges of the table. This prevents the chairs from awkwardly going off the rug when they're pushed back as you sit down or stand up.

Kitchen

Hall & Entryways

Not only do runner rugs look beautiful, they'll also protect your flooring from excessive wear, tear, and sun damage. Placing a beautiful runner in a high-traffic area keeps your style flowing throughout your home.

If you have a custom staircase that falls outside of the standard sizes listed above, your best bet would be to have a runner custom made, so that you can tailor it to your specifications to allow for an appropriate scale.

Bedroom

Your bedroom is no exception when it comes to styling your home with new rugs.

Office

One of the first considerations for choosing your office rug is what size it will be. Standard office rugs come in various sizes from the smallest to the largest office space.

Determining the size of your office rug begins by understanding your needs. If you want a rug purely for decorative reasons, the size should fit your decor idea. For example, you may wish to have a small round rug for a seating area, or you may want it to be almost wall-to-wall.

If you want the office rug under the desk, ensure it is large enough for the desk and all chairs to be comfortably on the rug even when pushed out. The rug should entirely cover all seats with a minimum of three inches extra around the parameter for a seating area.

For a rug to fill the room, leave just three inches from the carpet and the walls or the furniture it borders.

Once again, when it comes to design with rugs, there are no set rules. We encourage you to experiment and discover what works for you and your home, depending on your space and of course your preference. Have fun shopping and we'll be here to help every step of the way!
