How to choose the right Surya rug size
Consider laying your room out first and then putting down painter’s tape to figure out where you’d like a rug or area rug to be. This allows you to visualize your space and get close-to-exact measurements, which is especially helpful if you’ve never bought a rug for that room before. A perfect area rug fits beneath all major furniture in a space.
If the space you measure out is between two Surya standard rug sizes, opt for the bigger one as long as it will still fit in the room. Those few inches can allow your furniture to shift slightly without it being a big deal, while going a few inches too small can make a room look awkward.
