Rug Size Guide

When thinking about what size rug you need for your space, there are several factors to consider. The rug size you need depends on the size of the room, where your furniture is placed, and what type of room it is going in. There are certain standards you can follow that will help you determine what size rug you need.

When picking a rug for your living room, you should make sure you leave enough room so that there is 18 inches of bare floor on each side of your rug. The living room tends to be one of the larger spaces in your home, you want to make sure that you get a big rug too. You never want a rug that just goes under the coffee table. You want to get a rug that all of your furniture will fit on. If your furniture is up against the wall, it is good to use the two legs rule. You can get a smaller rug, and make sure that two legs of each piece of furniture is on it.

The proper size for a rug in your dining room depends on the size of your table. You want to make sure that your table and chairs fit on the rug with enough room to pull the chairs in and out. A good standard to remember when picking a rug for your dining room is that it should run at least 24 inches from each side of the table.

For the bedroom, you want to make sure that the rug is the first thing your feet touch when you get up in the morning. A good way to achieve this is either a large area rug that goes entirely under your bed, or a runner for each side of the bed. A measurement standard to follow for a bedroom rug is that it should span 30 inches from the side of the bed. In the bedroom you want your rug to be at least 16 inches away from the wall. Tip: always place your bedroom rugs HORIZONTAL!
