What size do i need

Rugs come in many shapes and sizes and finding the right size to suit your space is imperative. Use this guide to ensure you are buying the best possible size to compliment your room and achieve the look that you want.

Getting it right

There are two options for choosing the correct size for your living area. The most common is the contemporary oversized method where you place all of your furniture on top of the rug – in most cases a 200x300cm or a 250x350cm size is best – the other more traditional method is where you place your lounges around the rug and only your coffee table on top.

You should always remember when shopping for rugs that a 200x300cm and a 250x350cm size rug can look huge when they are hanging in a showroom however when you see them on the floor they always appear considerably smaller.
