Choose the correct area rug size for your room




The second-most important aspect (with the first being the style, of course!) in rug selection is size. The size and type of room and furniture placement must be taken into consideration. Be sure to measure your furniture, room, and open space before ordering a rug. The room will be complete with the right size rug.

These illustrations are only examples; there are infinite combinations of rugs and furniture. The experienced staff at RugStudio will be happy to assist you in finding the appropriate size rug for your space.
