Choosing the perfect rug size for every room

Choosing the perfect rug size for every room

Discovering the ideal rug size can transform your space, enhancing both style and functionality. From cozy corners to expansive living areas, understanding the right dimensions for each room is key. The right size can complement various spaces within your home. 

Living Room Rugs: Ensure the rug extends a few inches in front of the sofa and accommodates the front legs of chairs. In larger living areas, create a cohesive space by allowing for either partial or complete placement of furniture on the rug.

Dining Room Rug Sizes: Consider round or rectangular rugs that comfortably fit all chair legs, even when they are pulled out from beneath the table. Make sure the rug provides ample coverage for the dining area.

Bedroom Rug Sizes: In bedrooms, align the longer side of the rug with the headboard. Ensure the front legs of the bed rest on the rug, creating a balanced appearance. Alternatively, opt for a larger rug that accommodates nightstands and the bed's head for a different layout.

Measuring for the Right Fit

When purchasing rugs online, measurements are clearly indicated. To envision how a rug will fit, use masking tape to create a border on the floor, leaving space around the area. This visual aid helps determine the appropriate rug size. Always allow a leeway of approximately 5cm to avoid inaccuracies in size selection.

 Remember, the rug's size should complement your furniture, offering balance and visual appeal to your space. Avoid an unbalanced look by ensuring the rug extends at least 30cm beyond the seating area. Align the rug's shape with the room's layout to create a sense of spaciousness and visual flow.

 By considering these guidelines and measurements, you'll effortlessly find the perfect rug size to elevate every room in your home.
