How to Choose a Rug Size



1. Start with a floor plan....

Choose a furniture layout that you like based on the size and dimensions of your room.  

2. Measure for your rug based on the space you would like to fill. 

If you are a visual person, a handy tip is applying blue painters tape to outline the area where you may want your rug to go. Remember, the number #1 reason an area rug will look "wonky" in a room is because it's too small for the sitting area. It is always better to go a little bigger than smaller.

3. Measured and the rug you need falls outside of our 16 sizes? No problem!

If you are not sure how to best place your furniture on an area rug, here are a few "tried and true" placement layouts that would get the nod of approval from any interior designer as well as help you figure out how much area rug you need to measure for. These are just suggestions, not hard and fast rules. In the end it's your space, so measure based on what you want and feel most comfortable living with. That's why we call it "RugsThatFit".






For rugs that will be used with sofas, we recommend adding an extra 6"-10" inches to your measurement for each side (not front or back) of your sofa to acheive a nice balanced look.
