How to Measure for a Rug

Selecting a Size

How do you determine the correct size rug for your space? It is not an exact science. The type of room and furniture placement should factor into your decision. We suggest leaving an equal amount of flooring exposed on all sides of the room. The first step is always to measure the space using a tape measure. One of the most common mistakes is to rely on a visual or ‘eyeball’ the space. A 6×9 rug can look very differently hanging on a rack. To make it easy, use our room planner!
Dining & Breakfast rooms

* When selecting a room size rug for the dining room, you need to measure the length and width of your table. Don’t forget to include the table leaf if you use it frequently.
* We recommend leaving enough space so the back legs of the dining room chairs can be placed on the rug. This will avoid chair legs getting caught on the edge of the rug when guests are pushing their chairs in and out.

Living or Family room

* We recommend selecting a size that allows each piece of furniture to be completely on or off the rug. The exception to this rule is a sofa, it is common for the back legs of a sofa to hang off the rug.
* Make sure to account for any heating vents or doorways.
* Depending on the usage of the room, you may want to consider traffic patterns.
* If there’s a hearth in the room, consider purchasing another small rug for placement in front of the fireplace.
* Coordinate the size of the rug with the size of your coffee table.
* An 8×11 rug brings together most furniture groupings nicely.


* When measuring for a bedroom, you must first determine if you prefer one room size rug or several rugs around the bed.
* When considering one room size rug it should be large enough for you to take a step or two when getting out of bed.
* If you have one bed centered in the room, you can place a rug at the foot of the bed and one on each side. If you have two beds in the room, you can add one more rug in between them.
* This is the perfect place to play around with rug sizes- Try a round rug or a rectangular rug placed at a diagonal underneath the bed.

Entry Way

* Consider a material that can handle the high traffic areas.
* Make sure the door can open and close over the rug. Consider the thickness or pile height of the room.
* If it’s a long hallway, you can also consider using two 5 ft runners.
