How to choose the perfect size rug for your home
The biggest mistake we see is the rug being too small for the space. If you have a BIG room, select a BIG rug.
If you have a small budget, spend it in the living room were you spend most your time.
In the living room we believe a carpet should be like 12cm (6inches) on both sides of the sofa and between 30 and 35 cm (12-18 inches) away from the walls.
In the bedroom we prefer to leave 45cm (1.5’) around the bed.
1. Best is to measure size of your seating area. Usually 2-seater sofas are 150-200cm, 3-seater sofas are 200-250cm. Best is to get a rug the width of your sofa and ideally add 12cm (6inches) to both sides.
2. Orient the rug to the shape of the room.

We suggest to select a carpet that is about 60-70cm wider all round and in proportion to the table, accommodating chairs when people are seated.
If you have a table for 6 people, usually the standard size is: 285 x 145 cm. So select a carpet around that size or bigger.
We usually advise to select smaller carpets for that room.
