Tired of tripping over rugs that are too small or having to cram your furniture into a tiny space? We've got the answer for you! Check out our guide to finding the perfect rug size for your home - no more guesswork required!

Have you ever been in a furniture store, looking to buy a rug, and were at a loss for what size to pick?


It can be intimidating to choose the right size for a rug, especially since it can completely change the dynamic of a room.

Fear not! We're here to answer your most pressing questions and give tips on choosing the perfect rug size for your home.

FAQ #1: How do I measure the space I want to put a rug in?

Measure the length and width of the room, including any furniture you want on the rug.

Allow for at least 18 inches of floor space around the rug's edges.

Our tip: Use painter's tape to outline where a rug would go on the floor to visualize the proportions.

FAQ #2: What size rug should I get for the living room?

Most living rooms require a rug covering most of the floor space, leaving only a foot or two bare floors around the edges.

For larger living rooms, consider using two or more rugs to create separate seating areas that are cohesive.

FAQ #3: What size rug should I get for the dining room?

A dining room rug should be large enough that chairs remain on it when pulled out.

Allow for at least 24-30 inches of rug space beyond the table in all directions. Our tip:

Consider a rug with a pattern to disguise any potential stains from food and drink.

FAQ #4: What size rug should I get for a bedroom?

A rug in the bedroom should extend at least 18 inches beyond the bed on all sides, allowing for a comfortable step out in the morning.

Use a rug to create a cozy reading nook or seating area for larger bedrooms.

FAQ #5: Can I use a smaller rug in a larger room?

Yes, but there are some guidelines to follow.

Use a smaller rug to define a specific area in a larger room, such as under a coffee table or in front of a fireplace.

Keep furniture off the rug's edges so it doesn't look lost in the space.

Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all approach to rug size.

It all depends on the space you're working with and the look you're going for.

A rug size will work for you to open up a small room or create a defined seating area.
