How to Size Your Room for the Perfect-Sized Modern Area Rugs

An area rug of the right size can complement the room, accent furnishings, bring life to a dull space, or make a subtle statement. But when it is too small or too big, it might give the room a poorly decorated or unfinished impression. So if you want to get modern area rugs for your home; read this guide and give your room the well-decorated look that it deserves.
  • Decide if you want the focus on the rug, an item or a location. Consider the styles, colors and patterns of your room so you can coordinate your rug selection. If you have a large room, use different sizes and patterns to create a contrast.
  • Visualize how the rug would fit in your space by bordering the floor where the rug will be positioned using a masking tape. Make sure that you leave a 2-inch margin of error. Once you have the tape positioned, measure its length and width and look for a rug with such dimensions.
  • If you are measuring for furniture, leave an even space on each side of the rug. For instance, if you want to put a rug under a dining set, the table legs and chairs should not go beyond the edges of the rug.
  • Position the rug in a way that is right for the room. Know that not all rooms have to have one rug in the middle of the floor. In a bedroom, for instance, you can put a rug at the sides or foot of the bed. If there are two beds, put a rug in the middle.
  • Finally, when positioning an oversized or room-sized rug, leave at least a foot between the walls and the rug edge to create the best effect. Likewise, ensure that runner rugs have to be a few inches shorter and narrower than the hallway.
Below are some of the best rug brands and variants that should perfectly coordinate with any room size.
