How to choose the right size rug for your space...
Consider layout and function
Would you like the rug to stand alone in your room as a feature? (e.g nursery image 1)
Or would like to use the rug to anchor the furniture in the room like a sofa, bed or dining table? (e.g images 2,3,4)
What shape will suit your space best?
Once you're clear on the room layout and function the rug will preform in your space, you need to decide what shape rug will best suit your needs, rectangular or round?
Choosing the perfect size
Now you're crystal clear on the room layout, rug function and shape, choosing the right size rug becomes so much simpler!
Our 3 tips for getting it right first time every time are;
1. Measure the space you think the rug will sit in
2. Think about how much of the rug will be on full display and how much will be covered by furniture (sofa/bed etc). We recommend allowing between 15-30cm under furniture legs
3. The perfect way to double check whether the size you've chosen is right is to tape out the dimensions you think will work best onto the floor. (inc the furniture covered section)
