rug guide

all legs off rug - 5 x 8

When you've got  a smaller living room or prefer to keep all your furniture off of the rug, go with a 5' x 8'.

front legs on, back legs off - 8 x 10

With this size you'll most likely have all front legs of furniture on the rug, with the back legs off.  Or just some of the front legs will be on the rug.  An 8' x 10' is the perfect choice for this set up.

all legs on rug - 9 x 12

This size generally allows the back legs of every piece of furniture to sit on the rug.

four chairs - 5 x 8

5' x 8' rugs are a great choice for smaller sized dining tables with four chairs.

four to six chairs - 8 x 8 round

Regular rugs work under square or round tables too, but a round rug is a much better match.

six to eight chairs - 9 x 12

Typically a 8' x 10' or 9' x 12' rug will work under a dining table with six to eight chairs.  An 8' x 10' rug is shown in this set up. 

twin size bed - 9 x 12

Since twin beds are small, take the bed's positioning and overall size of the room into consideration.  And if you've got two twin beds in the same room, a 9' x 12' works wonderfully for pulling the look together.

full size bed - 5 x 8

Lay the rug horizontally under the bed, and expose some of the rug on the top too.  Let your room size dictate just how much rug you want showing at the the foot of the bed.

queen size bed - 8 x 10

Just like full size beds, you'll want to layer a rug horizontally under the bed.  Both an 8' x 10' and 9' x 12' will work, but remember the larger rug has the effect of making your room appear bigger.

king size bed - 9 x 12

A king size bed calls for at least an 8' x 10' and usually a 9' x 12'.  Anything smaller will appear out of proportion.  A 9' x 12' rug is shown on the opposite side.

indoor / outdoor mat - 2 x 3

Just like a traditional doormat, a small 2' x 3' indoor / outdoor scatter rug is a great decorative option near the patio door.

indoor / outdoor rug - 8 x 10

If you have a smaller outdoor furniture arrangement (i/e/ two chairs facing one direction, a bench against a wall, or a tight area like the front porch), a 5' x 8' rug is a good way to ground the space.

indoor / outdoor rug - 9 x 12

Whether you want to anchor the outdoor dining table, or create a full outdoor seating area, an 8' x 10' indoor / outdoor rug is your go-to option.
