Choosing the Right Size
Confused about the right size of area rug for your living room? Read our guide to choosing the right rug size. Here’s a quick summary for common living room sizes!
- 5x7 and 5x8 Rugs: These work well for smaller living rooms. Smaller rugs play off of the room’s scale, lending a larger feel to tight spaces. Place the rug in front of your sofa and chairs and center the coffee table on top for a classic layout.
- 8x10 Rugs: 8x10 area rugs work well with larger living rooms to tie the space together. Rest the front legs of your sofa and chairs on top of these rugs. This layout works especially well with furniture placed against a wall, since no one will be stepping behind the furniture.
- 9x12 Rugs and Oversize Rugs: Perfect for defining seating areas in large, open spaces where furniture groups are not against walls. These rugs are large enough to accommodate all sofas, loveseats, armchairs, and coffee tables with room to spare. Make sure you size the rug so there is 24"" of space beyond the furniture set to allow room for walking.
