Size and Fitting Guide

Looking for the best rug size for your space? A well-proportioned rug will unify separate elements and pull the room together.

Rugs can also be used to create balance in a less symmetrical space and to zone open plan areas.

Before choosing your rug, consider the following:

  • Positioning

    The first step is always to measure the floor space where the carpet will be placed, as well as the furniture that will coexist in the chosen area, to make sure you choose the best option.
  • Comfort

    Our rugs are perfectto walk on, so for having the full experience and to maximize comfort, make sure there is a generous amount of rug between its edges and the objects around it. For example, along the edges of the bed.
  • Design

    Plain rugs tend to be more traditional in style and might go unnoticed within the space. On the other hand, contemporary patterned rugs can make a room look more spacious and add personality.

Living room

As a general rule, large and small rest areas benefit greatly from adding a rug, which helps to define the different spaces and bring comfort to the entire room. A rug will additionally offer acoustic insulation. 

We recommend choosing large rugs to accompany furniture. A rug that does not extend to at least the lenght of the main sofa may seem overly small.

Dinning room

In dining rooms, a rug under the table is a great solution to improve the acoustics of the space, as well as providing comfort and personality.

The size of the rug should be proportional to the size of the table and ideally sligthly larger so that the back legs of the chairs do not protrude from the rug once seated. 

Did you know that a seated person occupies approximately 75 cm? Therefore, the rug should be approximately 1 m larger than the table on each side.

  • 170x240cm


    For dining rooms with limited space, we recommend standard size rugs that can be placed with the chairs in front of them on top of the rug.

  • 200x300cm


    For tables with 6 chairs and if space allows it, we recommend measures of 200x300 cm or 250x350 cm so that all the chairs are integrated into the rug.

  • 300x400cm


    For large tables, we recommend larger or custom-sized rugs, so that all chairs fit inside the rug and can move comfortably without getting caught in the rug.

  • Circular


    Smaller circular or irregular designs often work well under round tables.

A rug is a great companion in bedrooms, where maximum comfort is usually sought. It can be placed at the foot of the bed taking advantage of the warmth it offers upon entering and leaving the room; smaller sizes can be placed on both sides of the bed or the rug can even be used as a decorative element.

Long, narrow rugs, commonly labelled runners, work very well in kitchens. One example would be to separate food preparation and eating areas. A rug can also be placed to indicate a transition to another room. 

In areas where more food or water may fall, we recommend placing rugs that are made with PET fiber. This fiber is more resistant. It supports water and humidity.
