Sizing

Measure before you start

Before you start looking at rugs you need to measure the dimensions of your room to work out the approximate space you have for a rug and any constraints you have (door openings, etc).

Bigger is usually better

A small rug can make a room look small and its elements disconnected. When in doubt, go for a bigger size to help tie everything together.

The 18-Inch rule

Most interior designers will tell you to leave around 18 inches of bare floor around a rug to get the right proportions. However, for small spaces you can tweak this.

Don’t be afraid to experiment

You’re allowed to bend the rules a bit when choosing a rug – they’re only guidelines after all.

Spaces

  • For big living rooms with furniture in the center, a large rug is best suited. This rug will help in fitting the furniture on top without getting overcrowded.
    Standard Sizes: - 9’x12’ and 11’x14’
  • If furniture is kept against the wall, the rug must be placed such that the front two legs of the furniture remain on the rug.
    Standard Sizes: - 6’x9’ and 8’x10’
  • If the room has a coffee table then small rugs would be most suited for this space.
    Standard Sizes: - 4’x6’ and 5’x7’
  • With wooden flooring, it is best to choose an area rug which lets about eight inches (twenty centimeters) of wood to be exposed around the rug’s borders.
  • More than 2 area rugs can also be placed in some large living rooms.
  • Instead of a room-sized area rug for the bedroom; use multiple area rugs. Bigger rugs in bedrooms will get hidden under the bed.
  • Place an area rug at the foot of the bed and two runners on each side, for a cozier foundation.
  • Alternately, several smaller rugs can be scattered to fill the space as needed.
    Standard Sizes: - 2’6”x8’ and 3’x5’
  • However, if you chose an area rug to go under the bed, it should extend around 3 feet or so, all around the bed. Alternatively, it could also extend on the sides and not on the foot of the bed.
    Standard Sizes: - 8’x10’ (queen) and 9’x12’ (king)
  • Area rug should be large enough to accommodate all chairs. The back legs of the chair must remain on the rug when the chairs are pulled out.
  • It is recommended that area rug extends around 2 feet beyond each side of the table.
    Standard Sizes: 8’x10’ and 9’x12’
  • A runner, made of wool, can be placed in the center of hallways. Wool runners are durable in this high traffic area.
  • Very light colors usually do not suit this space.
    Standard Sizes: - 2’6’x8’ and 3’x12’
  • A runner can also be kept on one side of the hallway or aisle and the furniture can be placed against the opposite wall.
    Standard Sizes: - 2’6”x8’ and 3’x12
  • Place a small rug in front of the sink if there will be high traffic.
    Standard Size: 2’x3’
  • Runners are the best choice for narrow kitchens. They fill up the space and remain soft under feet.
    Standard Sizes: 2’6”x8’ and 3’x5’
