Rugs Size Guide

"Measure twice, cut once." 

- Benvenuto Cellini

Having the right size rug for your space is essential as it creates harmony. Thus the wrong size can bring misbalance in the area. If a rug is too small for your space it can cause the room to feel uninviting. Paradoxically, a rug that is too large for the room can make the room feel smaller. The right-sized area rug will bring warmth and balance to the room, creating the perfect finishing touch.

Choosing the perfect rug for your space may seem pretty easy but it is not a simple task. These images can give you an insight of how to measure and choose the right size rug for your space!

General tips

  • The larger the room, the larger the rug.
  • Keep at least 60 cm distance from the wall. 
  • Leave space in front of the door opening for our high pile rugs (2,5 cm high).

How to measure the right size rug for your Living Room? 

An easy way to go is to measure the length of your couch and add another 20 to 40 cm to that for both sides. It's always beautiful to have space around your couch rather than to place them in a corner or against the wall. If the side of your couch is against the wall then you should only add 1x 20 to 40 cm to the length of the couch. 

If you have a small living room you can also opt for rug to only be below the front legs of the furniture.
