Rug Size & Placement

"Choose the size of a rug first.

A rug that is too small, can cause a room to appear smaller and make the furniture feel disconnected, therefore, opt for a larger size rug."

Rug Size & Placement

Dining Room

The back of the chair legs should always be on the rug, even when being used. For Dining rooms, the rug should always be in proportion to the table. The rug should always accentuate the shape of the table, if you have a round table then choose a round rug. It is best to always leave enough space on either side of the table for chairs to be pulled out. The rug needs to be approximately 1.2m-1.5m wider and longer than a dining table, at least 65-75cm around the perimeter of the table for the chairs to avoid ‘catching’ the back of the rug. The back of the chair legs should always be on the rug, even when being pushed back.

3 QUICK TIPS

  1. The back of the chair legs should always sit on on the rug, even when being pushed back.
  2. Go with a rug the same shape as the table - a round table, round rug.
  3. Pure wool flatweave rugs are ideal for family dining areas.

Bedroom

Add warmth and softness to a bedroom with hard flooring to make it feel cosier. The rug should be underfoot when someone gets out of bed and large enough to sit underneath the bed and side tables, or just stopping short of the side tables. Another option is a set of custom runners for either side of the bed. Whether you are looking for a rug to go under a King Size Bed, Queen Size Bed or Single bed it's important to measure first.

3 QUICK TIPS

  1. The rug should be underfoot when getting out of bed.
  2. Choose a soft, plush rug for barefoot luxury.
