Choosing the correct rug size
Determining the best size for a room is just as important as choosing the proper rug style and colors palette. The shape and size of the rug will help to define furniture placement and seating areas. Using several area rugs in one area can help to connect one room to another and blend your overall style throughout your home. Furniture can be centered on a rug or positioned off the rug, depending on your personal preference.
For a medium sized room typically use a 5'x8"
This is typically a smaller bedrooms, home offices, and in living rooms under the coffee table, for example.
- Area rugs should approximate the same length and width of the furniture within the space. - Depending upon the size of your coffee table and accompanying furniture,choose a rug that accommodates all 4 legs of the table. - You can either leave some space between the furniture and area rug or place the front legs of the furniture on the rug with furniture coasters under the back legs adjusting for height.
For a large sized room
Large rooms typically use an 8’ x 10 or larger area rug. This size of rug is great for living rooms, dining rooms and master bedrooms.
An 8’ wide rug can accommodate most dining tables, but add at least 4’ to the length and width of your table measurements to be sure. Rugs should extend beyond the chairs in the pulled out position.
Balance the area you are trying to define by leaving an equal amount of rug around the furniture grouping. An equal amount of exposed flooring around your rug can also give balance to your room.
In bedrooms, one large rug is fine but the bed will cover most of it. Smaller equal-sized rugs used around the bed are another option.
