Choosing the right sized rug can be a bit tricky, so we have created this rug placement guide to help you out.
Design tip: measure your room and your furniture, as your furniture size is just as important as the room size. Map out your rug dimensions on your floor with painter’s tape and a measuring tape. Place your furniture on the rug so that you can see what dimensions will work best in your space and with your furniture.
The larger the room, the larger the rug. A larger rug in a larger room will help define a specific area, such as a lounge area or dining area. It grounds the space and creates more cosiness. Smaller rooms often benefit from smaller rugs to make the rooms feel larger.
A non-slip rug underlay will extend the life of your rug, hold it in place and protect your flooring. We believe it’s worth the investment.
It is recommended that a rug should leave at least 10-20cm gap between the edge of the rug and the wall, so that there is a visible strip of flooring to help frame the space.
Furniture legs can either sit on or off the rug, there are not hard-set rules and ultimately comes down to personal preference.
These are rug placement guidelines and can be adjusted to suit your unique space and preferences.
