Discover the Perfect Rug Size with Our Rug Sizing Guide

Experts Reveal the Perfect Rug Sizes for Every Room: Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Bedroom and Hallway areas.

Living Room

When in search of a rug for your living room, it's important to consider your furniture arrangement and explore the different layout possibilities. If you have an open floor plan, the rug can play a crucial role in defining the space and enhancing the overall acoustics.

9'x12' Rugs

A 9'x12' rug is an excellent choice for a 12'x18' or larger living room or open floor plan, as it comfortably accommodates your furniture, accessories, and decor, resulting in a more cohesive and unified aesthetic.

8'x10' Rugs

In an 11'x13' or slightly larger room, or in an open floor plan, an 8'x10' rug fits well, while a defined living area benefits from a 12"-18" flooring border around the rug for the optimal layout.

6'x9' Rugs

For an 11'x13' or smaller living room, a 6'x9' rug is the optimal choice, providing approximately 2' of flooring border on each side of the rug.

5'x7' Rugs

In a compact living room, a 5'x7' rug fits nicely under a coffee table or in front of a fireplace, allowing two comfortable chairs to sit nearly entirely on the rug.

3'x5' Rugs

Enhancing comfort and adding a touch of elegance, a 3'x5' rug serves as an ideal choice to elevate and showcase a designated landing area in a living room.

Dining Room

A handy guideline to follow is to choose a rug that exceeds the dimensions of your dining table by approximately four feet. It is crucial for the rug to be large enough to accommodate all dining chairs comfortably, ensuring they remain entirely on the rug even when pulled out.

Large Table (8+)

To comfortably accommodate eight or more chairs, a 9'x12' rug provides an ideal surface, ensuring all chairs can be placed entirely on the rug while seated.

Medium Table (6)

For a table set for six, either an 8'x10' or 6'x9' rug is well-suited, allowing ample space on all sides for convenient movement of dining chairs while keeping them within the rug's boundaries.

Small Table (4)

For a table intended for four people, the optimal choice is an 8' round rug, while alternatively, you can position the table and chairs in the middle of a 6'x9' rug, creating a floating effect.

When selecting the appropriate rug size, direct your attention to the dimensions of your bed. The prevailing approach involves positioning a spacious area rug beneath the bed, serving as the centerpiece of the room. Conversely, a smaller rug positioned adjacent to the bed serves as a complementary accent while providing a cozy landing spot for your feet.

King Bed

The ideal rug size for a king bed is 9'x12', as it comfortably accommodates the bed and nightstands, with the rug extending almost entirely beneath them, leaving approximately 2' of soft rug surrounding the bed for a cozy underfoot experience.

Queen Bed

Covering a queen bed and nightstands, an 8'x10' rug provides 3' of rug on each side of the bed, while a 6'x9' rug offers an 18" border on both sides.

Full Bed

A full bed pairs well with a 6'x9' rug, or alternatively, you can choose two 3'x5' rugs to place on either side of the bed, providing additional cushioning.

Twin Bed

A twin bed is well-suited for an 8'x10', 6'x9', or 5'x7' rug, with sufficient space remaining around the perimeter. Alternatively, two 3'x5' or smaller rugs can be placed perfectly on each side of the bed.

Double Twins

Optimally, position a 3'x5' rug between the two beds, or alternatively, place a 2.5'x7' or 2.5'x10' runner rug across the center of the beds.


When deciding on a kitchen rug, take into account the dimensions and arrangement of your space. A general guideline is to prioritize placing the rug in front of the sink, as it serves as the most practical location. To provide an added level of comfort for your feet, consider using a Cushioned Rug Pad.

Large Kitchen (200 sq. ft. or more)

A larger kitchen can handle a 5'x7' rug. For kitchens with islands, use a 3'x5', 5'x7', or runner rug on one or both sides of the island.

Small Kitchen (70 sq. ft. or less)

To prevent a small kitchen from feeling cluttered, consider placing a 3'x5' rug in front of the sink, which suits various layouts and adds a touch of charm.

Long or Galley Layout (10 ft. long or more)

In a spacious, elongated kitchen layout, the most suitable option is to place a 2.5'x7', 2.5'x10' or 2.5'x16' runner rug along the sink side, ensuring a perfect fit. However, if the kitchen is narrower, it is recommended to position the runner rug in the center to optimize the available space.

Entryways & Small Spaces

The versatility of 3x5 rugs lies in their compact dimensions, allowing them to fit seamlessly into various areas. Whether it's an entryway, foyer, small bedroom, kitchen, mudroom, or laundry room, the possibilities for incorporating this rug size are boundless.
