What Size Rug Does Your Room Need?

One of the most important first steps to choosing a rug for your room is to know how big of a rug you need. A rug can help to pull a room together and complement the interior decor of your space. It can also help to divide a space into sections, especially in large rooms. Use these tips to help you choose what size rug to get:

Consider the Furniture

The best place to start is to take a look at the furniture in the room and use it to determine the orientation and size of the rug. In general, you’re looking for a rug that will help to bring all of your furniture together. The most common way to achieve this is by putting all of the furniture on the rug. There are a few exceptions. In the living room, a common design is to have the rug just under the coffee table or just under the front legs of the couch on the rug. In the bedroom, two runners on either side of the bed is a common layout or the rug only under the bed and not the end tables.


Living Room

Area rug is just under the coffee table.


Bigger Usually Fits Better

If you are deciding between two different sizes, then usually the larger size will fit in the room. You do want to make sure that the rug fits the room by allowing a foot or so between the rug and the wall.


Getting a rug that you love to fit your space doesn’t have to be difficult. Once you know what size you need, stop by Carpet Depot and let us make a custom one for you from our selection of carpet remnants that is the perfect match for you and your home.
