Rug Size Guidelines for Rooms
The Right Size Rug Makes All the Difference...
If you're unfamiliar with sizing conventions for area rugs, then picking the right size area rug for a room in your home can be confusing. The following guidelines will make it easier for you to pick the perfect size rug for your living room, dining room, bathroom, or smaller entry way.
An area rug should be 3 to 4 feet larger in length and width than a dining room table to prevent your guest's chairs from falling off the edge of the rug. In most cases, an 8' x 11' is the minimum size required.
If you want the rug to be more visible in all parts of the room with a border of hard surface flooring beneath, consider a 10' x 13'.
Depending on the size of the room and the desired look, a 5' x 8' or 8' x 11' is usually perfect for living rooms.
Entries, Kitchens & Bathrooms
These usually require scatter-size rugs, 2' x 3' or even up to 4' x 6'. In many cases, these areas are a great place to showcase a special shape, such as a round rug.
