Safavieh's Designer Rug Size Guide: The Living Room
Whether in an apartment in the city or a comfortable small- to mid-size living space, a 5’ x 8’ rug is ideal for those looking to make their room look and feel more spacious.
Designer Tip: Place your sofa or club chairs at the very edge of the rug with legs off to maintain stabilization and avoid a cluttered look and feel.
To accommodate a mid- to large-size living room, an 8’ x 10’ rug is the most popular room layout with maximum comfort underfoot to add proportion and balance.
Designer Tip: Place the front legs of your sofa or club chair on the outer edges of the rug to maintain stabilization and avoid a cluttered look and feel.
For a large room, showcase a stunning 9’ x 12’ or 10’ x 14’ area rug to make a grand statement in a living space designed for luxurious entertainment gatherings.
Designer Tip: Place your sofa, sectional, or club chairs with all legs on top of the rug for a much more “pulled-together” look and feel in large spaces.
Safavieh's Designer Rug Size Guide: The Dining Room and Bedroom
Use a 5’ x 8’ rectangular rug in smaller dining areas with a table and 4 – 6 chairs.
Designer Tip: Make sure that the edge of the dining table is a minimum of 2 feet away from the edge of your area rug.
Use an 8’ x 10’ or 9’ x 12’ rug in larger dining areas with a table and 6 – 8 chairs.
Designer Tip: Ensure placement allows a minimum of 18” of bare floor from the edge of the rug to any wall.
For a bedroom, a 5’ x 8’ rug is ideal for a full or twin size bed, and an 8’ x 10’ or 9’ x 12’ rug works well with a king or queen size bed.
Designer Tip: The rug looks best when placed perpendicular under the bed with enough rug exposed on either side to place your feet.
