How to Choose the Correct Size Rug For My Living Room

Rugs are one of those design elements that can really make or break a room.  Kathy Neilson, with the help of World of Rugs, shows diagrams that can really help understand the impact they should make.  Remember that anchoring is essential!

How to Choose the Correct Size Rug For My Living Room

While there are many factors to consider, i.e., size of the room, number of pieces of furniture, etc., the following is a guideline to help determine the size rug. I just used this diagram, provided by World of Rugs, to show a couple here in Atlanta whose home I had staged and sold and am now helping to decorate their newly purchased home. Using this diagram helped tremendously. I want to personally thank Paul Roorda, from World of Rugs, for giving me permission to use his diagram for this blog post.

Here are some other items to consider when choosing your rug size:

  • If you're selling your home and have beautiful hardwood flooring, it's best to expose them. That said, go with the smaller size (6 x 9 or even a 5 x 8).
  • The larger the room, the larger the rug. Large rooms can accommodate a large area rug (9 x 12 or 10 x 14). For small rooms, go with a smaller size (6 x 9 or 8 x 10).
  • Dark rugs can help ground a room while a lighter color won't. Keep that in mind when determining the size rug.

Choosing the correct size rug is important. I hope this diagram has helped you as much as it did me.
