ABOUT RUG MEASUREMENT

 

Once we’ve taken measurements of the spaces where you want to install a rug, we can then help you choose an appropriate size. The ideal measurements will vary based on room, as each area of the home has its own unique requirements.

 

RUG MEASUREMENT GUIDE

 
  • Living Room: 9’x12’ is a great rug size for living rooms that are 12’x18’ or bigger. 8’x10’ is the best rug size for living rooms which are 11’x13’ or a bit bigger. For living rooms that are 11’x13’ or lower, the best option is a 6’x9’ rug.
  • Dining Room: For dining rooms, you’ll want to position your rug directly beneath the table in a central location. If the table is large with eight chairs or more, you want a rug that is 9’x12’ in size. For a moderately sized dining table that has six chairs, you want a rug that is 8’x10’ in size. For smaller dining tables that have four chairs, you want a rug that is either 6’x9’ or 8’x10’ in size.
  • Bedroom: A bedroom rug will make the space feel cozier and warm while minimizing acoustics. The proper size rug will be determined by your bed and room size. For a king-size bed a 9’x12’ rug is highly recommended, while for a queen-size bed you want a rug that is 8’x10’. For a full bed the best rug size is either a single 6’x9’ rug or dual matching rugs which are 3’x5’.
  • Kitchen: Irrespective of the size of your kitchen, you want the rug to be positioned in the kitchen sink’s front. This is because most kitchen sinks are centered along a wall that has cabinets adjacent, which means the rug must be placed in a manner that coordinates with the cabinets and floor. For large kitchens which exceed two hundred square feet, you want a 6’x9’, 9’x12’ or 8’x10’ rug. For kitchens with an island consider using a rug that is 3’x5’ or 5’x7’ on each side. For moderate-sized kitchens which are between one and two hundred square feet, a 3’x5’ or 5’x7’ rug is best, while for small kitchens which are seventy square feet or below you want either a 3’x5’ or 2’x3’ rug.
  • Outdoor: These rugs must be highly durable to withstand the elements. Ideally, you want one which leaves twelve to twenty four inches of floor space which is visible around it. For a moderate to large deck, balcony or patio, consider rugs that are 9’x12’, 5’x7’, 8’x10’ or 6’x9’ in size. For smaller spaces and entrances you want a rug which is 2’x3’ to 3’x5’ in size.
