Choosing The Correct Size Of Rug

If you are wanting to add an area rug to your room you might be asking yourself , "How big of a rug should I get?" This is an important question to ask yourself before you go shopping for a rug. You do not want to fall in love with a rug only to find out that it is too small or too large. Read this article and learn some tips that can help you choose the right size of rug.

The first tip is if you are buying a rug that will be room sized. Try to leave at least 12 to 18 inches around the rug so that the room will look balanced and the rug will not look awkward. This means that if the room is 10' by 10' you would want a rug that is no larger than 8' by 8'. If you are placing a rug under a living room set you will want to lay out your furniture first and see how much room it covers. Try to purchase a rug large enough that all of the furniture fits easily on the rug. If placing a rug under a bed make sure that it extends 12 to 18 inches past the bed on all sides. If placing a rug under a table make sure that you will be able to fit all of your chairs on the rug easily with none of the legs resting off of the rug.

I hope these general guidelines will assist you in finding the right size of rug for your room. Remember to consider them before you go shopping so that you will not waste time looking at rugs that are the wrong size. If in doubt, ask your salesman or better yet an interior designer for details.
