Most people have a few questions when they shop for area rugs. To start your shopping off right, we’ve collected the most-asked questions here, along with their basic answers.
Q. What size rug do I need in my living room?
A. A large rug is generally recommended when all the furniture is contained within the rug area. Using a size (such as 9’ x 12’ or 8’ x 11’) that allows a border of flooring to show symmetrically on all sides is an attractive look. Smaller rugs (5’ x 8’, for example) are often used to define a conversation area.
Q. Do I need a round rug with a round table?
A. A round rug is suitable as long as it is large enough to accommodate the chairs. If you often add leaves to the table, a rectangle is the better choice.
