Design Challenge: Selecting the Right Rug

Design Challenge: Selecting the Right Rug

One of the most common reasons rugs become a challenging subject is improper size selection. Choosing the correct rug size is essential to filling a space properly and to making the rug look the best it can within a particular living area. It is important to note that appropriate rug size should be determined based on furniture configuration and not on room size alone.

Start with a floor plan….What’s your arrangement?
Choose a layout and measure for your rug based on the space you’d like to fill.

Dining Layout
For dining rooms, measure the length and width of your dining table and add 2 feet on each side. Most dining room tables require a rug that’s at least 8 feet wide.

Bedroom Layout

In bedrooms, extend a rug from the bottom 2/3 of the bed. Alternatively, you could also place two runners on each side or a single runner at the foot of the bed.
