How to Select the Right Area Rug

I get a lot of questions from my clients who have a difficult time trying to figure out the appropriate size of area rug they should purchase for their space. Whether that is for their living room, bedroom, and dining room – YES – you can put an area rug in your dining room! I know – Fantastic!

One of the most common mistakes when buying an area rug is choosing a size that is too small for your space. If you are unsure, why not tape it out on the floor? This way you can really see and visualize what it looks like. This ‘tip’ can also be applied to furniture pieces as well.

I always recommend that you determine the appropriate size rug based on your furniture configuration, not on your room size. A great guideline to determine the best size of an area rug is to always consider the furniture placement over the room size.
