How to Buy the Right Rug for Your Space

Visualize the Final Look

Use painter's tape to mock the rug placement before you buy. This trade secret is an easy way to check that you have the right fit from every vantage point.

Consider the Shape

Your room shape, not just the furniture, should dictate the rug size and orientation. If you choose a layout with the sofa on the rug, it should extend at least 6 inches on each side for proper scale.

Height Matters

Check the pile height when placing a rug near an entry or doorway to ensure your door will clear the rug when it’s opened.
