CARPET & RUG SIZES
In United States the apartments are always limited in certain sizes. Though handmade rugs do not have any rules and regulations on sizes, but still below are the sizes what people choose to buy for their places.
SIZE AND FITTING GUIDE
Most rooms need a rug – a room without a rug can appear unwelcoming and unfinished. It will transform a room, introducing a sense of luxury, particularly if it is of good quality and a high standard of craftsmanship; the colour, pattern and texture of the rug lend a feeling of comfort and personality to the room.
Always opt for a good quality handmade rug over a tufted one because not only do they look so much better, but they also will last for much, much longer. Most of all, you must love the rug – it is not like cushions, curtains or a sofa, but something that should last forever so you must be happy enough to have it in any room or even a different house.
Living Room A
Living Room B
Go for the largest size you can afford as it gives a generous, calming effect to the room. It’s great to be able to place furniture such as the sofa half on a rug (Living Room A), to give a wonderfully luxurious and flowing feel to the space.
Small rugs can look bitty and mean in the wrong space. A common solution is to have a rug that sits within the furniture, in front of sofas and chairs. In this case, the rug should be slightly longer and wider than the furniture, and not too far from the seating (Living Room B).
Living Room C
If you want to unify a room, a large rug will do this effectively (Living Room C). In this case, leave sufficient extra space around all the furniture so it does not appear ‘perched’ on the edge of the rug.
Furniture around the perimeter of the room, such as sideboards and cupboards, are generally best left completely off the rug.
For a dining room, a large rug under the table will deaden the sound in the room and bring colour, pattern and texture. Ideally, the rug should be in proportion to the table, and larger than it so that there is sufficient space to pull out a chair and sit down without the back legs coming off the rug. The minimum that allows for this is 75cm (29”), so that the ideal size is generally at least 1.50m (59”) larger than the table in each direction.
For a bedroom, the rug is best placed underneath the bed, framing it but stopping short of the side tables (Bedroom A). This allows for rug underfoot when one gets out of bed.
An alternative option is to have a smaller rug on either side of the bed (Bedroom B)
