How to Select an Area Rug


If you want to cover a room, choose a rug that is two feet shorter than the smallest wall in the room. If your study is 10’ x 12’ then look for a rug no more than 8’ wide. For a larger room, such as a living room, look for a rug that covers and frames the area where the furniture is placed. The rug should be big enough so that at least the front third of the furniture sits on the rug.

Entry Hall

For a hallway, swing the front door open and then measure the floor from that point so that the first three feet remain clear. Hall rugs should have at least 6” of floor showing on all sides.

Dining Room

A rug in a dining room should extend at least 18” beyond the edge of the table so that it accommodates the dining chairs.


Try runners at each side and even the foot of the bed. Or place a rug one-third of the way under the foot of the bed so the rest of the rug creates a nice mat at the foot of the bed.
