Rug Size Matters: Finding the Right Rug Size for Your Space

Rugs make great decorative additions to any room. They can add color and character to your home. However, you need to have the right size rug to fit the space. While rug style and design are big factors, rug size is the most important aspect for any rug. Follow these guidelines to find the perfect size rug for the rooms in your home.

Living Room

The best rug option for a living room is one rug that covers the entire space. This connects all the furniture and makes the room feel open and unified. Another option is to have only the front legs of the furniture on the rug. This works best for living rooms where all the furniture is pushed against the walls around the room. A third option for living room rug sizes is to have a small rug that only goes beneath the coffee table in the center of the room. It helps a small living room seem larger.

Dining Room

The preferred size of a dining room rug is clearer than with a living room rug. Dining room rugs should simply reflect the setup of the dining room table. If you have a rectangular table, you should get a rectangular rug that both the table and chairs can fit on easily. If you have a circular table, you should get a circular rug. Whatever option you choose, try to get a rug large enough so that all legs fit on it, thereby ensuring that each chair has an even ground to sit on.

Bedroom

Make sure that your rug size and placement are based around your bed size and location. If you do not want to have a single rug beneath your bed, you can have two smaller rugs that run on either side of your bed.

Hallway and Entry

Runner runs are always ideal for hallways. Try to get a rug that is not too large, so furniture legs are not on the rug. For the entry, choose a rug that reflects the shape and size of the space. Make sure the rug is small enough that the front door can still easily open.  Koeckritz will customize any rug to the shape and size needed for your area.
