Decorating Help: Rug Sizes

One of the biggest mistakes we see is that rugs aren’t the proper size. We’re going to give you some easy dimensions to remember!


It’s really important to fill out the space of your living room. The living room is where you spend a lot of your time entertaining or hanging out on the floor if you have kids. A good rule of thumb is to at least have the front feet of your furniture on the rug. We generally like 8’x10’, 9’x12’ or 10’x14’.


We like to use rugs in bedrooms that have wood floors to add some warmth and comfort and to even carpeted rooms to add color. To start, we recommend choosing a rug that is right for your bed. For a twin a 5x8, a queen we like an 8x10, and for a king a 9x12. We generally put the rug in front of the nightstands so that you can see the rug at the foot of the bed.


For bathrooms, we like to use runners for double vanities or a simple 2’x3’ for a single sink

There are times that we make custom rugs too. It’s always important to measure your space beforehand. Need our help?
