Your Guide to Finding the Perfect Rug

When searching for a rug, the most daunting task is the first step, what size? We have broken down the process so when it comes time to unroll the rug, it will be a perfect fit.

LET'S START WITH SIZE

SIZE

A few inches can make all the difference between the rug pulling a space together or making it feel disconnected. If you are choosing between sizes, opting for the larger option will prove that it is worth the extra expense every time.

ROOM

One of the first steps to finding the right size rug is to consider the size of each room and the room's furniture arrangement. Measuring the room and the furniture is always a good starting point.

VISUALIZE

An easy trade secret to check that you have the perfect size rug from every vantage point is to use painter's tape to mock the rug placement before you buy.

LIVING ROOM

DESIGN TIPS

The front legs of sofas and chairs should sit on the rug. Make sure to leave at least 6" of rug space on each side of the furniture piece

For a much larger room, opt for a rug that is large enough to contain all the furniture legs resting on the rug.

Make sure there is at least 1' of exposed floor between the rug and the walls.

DINING ROOM

DESIGN TIPS

Both the shape of your room and the dining table should impact whether it's rectangular or round.

Let the dining chairs sit completely on the rug, with enough room to pull the chairs out and still remain of the rug.

If your table extends, select a rug size that can accommodate the table at its longest length.

DESIGN TIPS

A rug can make the bedroom feel warm and cozy, help soften noise to create a quiet space.

In selecting a rug for a bedroom, the right rug depends on the size of the room and bed.

Choose a rug that extends at least a foot on either side of the bed. If the room is larger, consider a rug that can fit the nightstands on it as well.

Layering

DESIGN TIPS

Use a neutral base.

Layer a smaller rug on top, this can be a colorful flatweave, soft wool, or genuine hide.

When determining the sizes to use, the top rug should be approximately 2/3 the size of the base rug.

Layering can highlight smaller rugs that would look undersized in the space by themselves.

FIND THE MATERIAL THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOUR SPACE
