Pick Your Rug Series

Picking the right size Rug For Your Room

Do you know how to determine the size your rug should be? Here are some tips to help.

Dining Room

In the dining room, you’d typically place the rug directly underneath the table and centered in the space. Let the dining chairs sit completely on the rug, with enough room to pull the chairs out and still remain on the rug. Typically, this would mean that your rug is larger than your dining table by 30 inches on all four sides.

Bedroom

A perfectly sized rug can make the bedroom feel warm and cozy and soften the acoustics, helping to create a quiet space. In selecting a rug for a bedroom, the right rug for you depends on the size of your room and your bed.

King- 9’x12′- leaves 2′ around the bed

Queen- 8’x10′- leaves 3′ around the bed

Full- 6’x 9′ or 2-3’x5′ works for full size bed

Twin- 8’x10′,6’x9′ or 2-3’x5′ work with a twin.

2 Twins- 3’x5′ rug between the two beds works

Kitchen

Regardless of the size and shape of your kitchen, the space in front of the kitchen sink is the best, most functional place for your rug. The kitchen sink is typically centered on a wall with cabinetry adjacent, so coordinate your rug with both your flooring and cabinetry, and place the rug centered on the sink.

Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor rugs set the mood and tone of the space while protecting your furniture and floor. When choosing a rug for your patio, deck, or porch, consider the size of the space and the layout of your outdoor furniture. For the best look, leave 12 to 24 inches of visible floor space around your rug.
