Rug Sizing Guide: Perfect Dimensions for Every Room

By Mark Rutherford November 29, 2023

A Guide to Finding the Perfect Fit

Rugs are a great way to add warmth, style, and comfort to your home. But choosing the right rug size can be tricky. Too small, and it will look lost in the room. Too large, and it will make the space feel cramped.


Here's a step-by-step guide to measuring for rugs in your home, using metres for all measurements:


Living Room

The living room is one of the most common places to put a rug. To measure for a living room rug, you'll need to consider the size of your furniture and the layout of the room. Here are some tips:


Start by measuring the length and width of the area where you want to place the rug.

Leave at least 45 to 60 centimetres of space between the edge of the rug and the walls.


If you have a fireplace, make sure the rug is large enough to extend at least 30 centimetres in front of the hearth.

If you have a sofa, the front legs of the sofa should be on the rug.

If you have armchairs, the front legs of the armchairs should be on the rug, or at least partially on the rug.

Once you have your measurements, you can start shopping for rugs. Here are some standard rug sizes that you may want to consider:


1.6 x 2.3 metres: This is a good size for a small to medium-sized living room.

2 x 3 metres: This is a good size for a medium to large living room.

3 x 4 metres: This is a good size for a large living room.
