Beginner’s Guide: Choosing Right Rug Sizes

Right Rug Sizes

Getting the correct size of rug and its correct placement are some of the harder jobs when incorporating a rug into your home. From the foyer and living room to the bedroom and kitchen, different room settings have different rug requirements. Through this blog, we will help you pick up the perfect sized rug for your home.

Living Room

If you have a large living room with the furniture aligned towards the center of the room, a full-size rug would be a choice to go for. The rug should be big enough, so that all the furniture can come over it. However, if your furniture is closer to the wall, a medium sized rug would be better. The rug should only be big enough to hold the first two legs of the furniture. In smaller sized living rooms, a small rug can be placed towards the center of the room under the center table, with none of the legs of adjoining furniture on it.

Bedroom/Guest Room

You want your bedroom to be warm, cozy and welcoming. Rugs can absolutely make that happen, but choosing the right size is important. If you have a large bed in an even larger bedroom, a small rug would be an underwhelming addition to it. Choose an area rug that would extend all around the bed till the side tables leaving the frame and the back legs directly on the ground and the front legs on the rug. For a small bedroom, a couple of runner rugs at the sides of the bed can really do wonders.


With a lot of foot traffic and a higher risk of spill, a smaller rectangular rug or round shaped rug in a spacious kitchen is most appropriate, whereas in a narrower kitchen, a runner rug that extends across the length of the kitchen is a befitting option to go for.

In a nutshell, the trick to choosing the correct size of rug for your room is to make it proportional to the size of the room. Bigger the room, bigger the size of your rug should be. A smaller room with a big rug can divert all the attention to the rug alone. Similarly, a bigger room with a smaller rug is tad disappointing.
