Rugs.com has a sizing chart that will help you find the perfect rug.
What size rug should I use in my room?
This question is easier to answer than you might think. To begin your rug shopping mission, you should measure the area that your rug will cover. You’ll get a good idea of what size rug you need. As we always tell our customers, it’s your house and your rules. What looks good in your home is entirely up to you. These are just suggestions from experts on how they think rugs should be placed.
Dining room Rugs
When choosing a rug for your dining room, it is a good idea to choose a carpet that matches the shape of the table. You want to pick a carpet to reach the focal point of this room, which is the table.
Pull out your dining chairs and measure the distance between them and the table. This is the size of the rug you need for your dining area. Your dining room rug should be large enough to accommodate each chair when it is pulled out for a person to sit. This will prevent chairs from catching when they are hurried in after sitting.
The entryway rug should be a welcome mat for your guests, but it shouldn’t cover the entire floor. Start by measuring the entryway, and decide how much of your floor will be exposed. The average amount of floor exposure is between 18″ to 24″. You can use this guide to choose the correct size rug for your entranceway.

Living room Rugs
Living rooms today are eclectic, bohemian, or traditional. Some rooms are spacious, while others are more enclosed. A rug for the living room serves as a focal point in the designated area of the room.
Choose a rug for your living room that can rest comfortably under the legs of all the furniture you have in the seating area. This is an excellent general rule, as the rug will anchor the room as it acts as the anchor.
It can be challenging to choose the right rug for a kitchen because space is usually limited. Use the same rules when choosing a rug to cover a breakfast area. When selecting a carpet to cover the area between your sink and the island in the kitchen, please leave at least a few inches between them.
It would be best if you also chose a machine-washable rug in the kitchen due to the inevitable spills and soiling. To prevent slipping, invest in a rug pad.
Bedroom rugs are a great way to enlarge your bedroom and also add comfort to your feet. When choosing the size of your bedroom rug, you should consider all the bedroom furniture. This is similar to how the arrangement in the living room works. If you’re measuring your bedroom rug area, ensure that it is large enough to cover your bed at the foot and head, as well as your nightstands on either side.
You can also place them next to the bed. This is a great place to rest your feet. Consider this Athena Shag Rug in Blue. It’s soft and inviting. This bedroom rug will make you want to get out of bed every morning.
You should decorate your patio as if it were an outdoor living room. Outdoor rugs can be used on your patio just as area rugs are in your living room. Choose an outdoor carpet on which only two legs rest of your patio furniture if you want your patio to look expansive. Choose a size rug that covers all four legs of patio furniture if you wish for an outdoor rug to anchor your patio.
This Brown Outdoor Lattice Carpet is the perfect rug for your patio seating area.
