Now, we’re going to talk to you about how to choose the perfect size rug for your living room. The biggest mistake that we see and we see it all the time is that rugs tend to be too small for space. So, the first thing we do when decided to write rug size is we measure the size of the seating area. We measured the room and realized the room is pretty big.
The seating area is at least we need a good nine by 12, but first I want to show you what happens if we bring in a rug this to me. The rub works in one sense that it is a little bit bigger than the sofa on both sides and I like for the rug to be at least six inches larger on both sides of the couch. None of the furniture legs are on it, and the room is huge, so the proportion of the rug to the room is off.
Doesn’t like wildly too small but it has bigger been better, and the orientation of it is horizontal with the sofa is kind of like squashing the room and make the room feel smaller. Do you want to try it oriented vertically sure, all right the good thing is there are at least six inches on both sides sofa rug? That to mention is correct.
Yes, it’s full enough, it’s just not long enough. I think our lesson is that we have to go up one more size. So, here we have a nine by 12. It’s very well soft. Let’s see what happens if we put all the furniture on top of it. This is our rug perfect rug size nine by 12 because any bigger it would be like running on both sides of the room. We don’t want – 10 x 14, but now all the furniture fits on it, so it dictates a conversation area and makes the room feel very pulled together. Alright, so just to recap the first tip is measured space and ensure that you’re getting the right rug for the right room.

Tip number two is a be consistent. If your legs are on, have them all, on or off of them all off, or if they’re half on have a half on but don’t have your sofa on and your chairs off that cuts a conversation area.
Tip number three orientation, right. Orient the road, the right way to the right room – so you don’t want to oriented to the sofa and then cut off the chairs. You want to make sure that if it’s a long room oriented lengthwise.
