Area Rug Size Guide

Find The Right Size

If your furniture is not positioned against a wall, you'll want a rug big enough to fit outside the outer legs of your furniture.

If your furniture is against a wall, your rug should only reach the inner legs of your furniture.

For rugs such as dining room rugs, your rug should extend 2 feet away from every side of your table.

The material you choose for your rug should reflect its use. If your rug will be placed in a high-traffic area, use our search filters to choose a natural material such as cotton, wool, jute, sisal or hemp. Flatweaves and kilims are especially suited for heavily trafficked areas. Machine-made and tufted rugs will last longer in lower-traffic areas.

Find the right pattern

The pattern of your rug should compliment the motifs of the rest of the furniture in a room. For instance, a solid rug is a good match for a sofa with a striking pattern. Conversely, boldly patterned styles will look great with neutral decor. Looking for a no-brainer? Solid-colored rugs like shags will suit any space. You can easily sort through all styles by searching by style and color.
