Buy the right sized rug for your space

Do you want to fill the floor or define or zone a space within it?

An open-plan living room/playroom/ dining room setup can be subtly subdivided with three different designs or textures of rug. These should tone in with or complement one another so they don’t battle for attention.

How to layout your rug

Whether you’re looking for a rug for your living room, bedroom or dining rooms – you should consider the size and layout of your space before you decide which rug to buy.

Living Room

R

In a large room with a floating seating area, choose a large rug which accommodates all pieces of furniture, including front and back legs.

R

In smaller rooms where the sofa is up against the wall, choose a rug that seats neatly under the front two legs of the sofa as well as the coffee table.

Q

Don’t choose a rug that is too small and only sits under the coffee table. As a guide your feet should rest on the rug when you are sat on the sofa.

Dining Room

R

Choose a rug that generously holds your tables and chairs even when they are pulled out.

Q

Don’t choose a rug that is too small for your dining room, this could also cause a trip hazard when pulling out chairs.

Bedroom

R

For a spacious bedroom, choose a rug that is large enough to hold all furniture or sit just below the bedside tables.

R

In a smaller bedroom or when the bed is placed against a wall, a runner rug works perfectly.

Q

Don’t choose a smaller rug to sit at the bottom of the bed, this will look completely out of scale in your room.
