Tips for choosing carpet



The right rugs for you and your home

When designing a room one must try to meet every need. The right rug may also help to enhance a space if chosen correctly. Deciding on the size, shape and placement may be tricky at times which is why we now present our Rug Guide, providing easy guidelines to help you choose and place the right rug for every room.

Living Room

200 x 300 cm

For large spaces. Use the biggest rug possible to fit all your furniture on top as it will help define the living area and improve the acoustics in open plan spaces.

 

140 x 200 - 140 x 210 - 170 x 240 cm

Another option is to only leave the two front legs of your sofa treading on the rug. Remember to use an anti-slip pad in this case to prevent the rug from moving when using the sofa.

Ø150 - Ø160 cm

For a more intimate decor, a round rug can make a room feel more inviting.

120 x 160 - 120 x 170 - 110 x 180 - 120 x 180 cm

With these sizes, it is best not to put any sofas on the rug. Place the rug in the middle of your furniture set and, if you wish, add a coffee table in the middle. These sizes are also good when having an L-sofa, because they fit perfectly between its parts.

120 x 80 | 230 x 80

Ideal for a small living room or a hallway, these sizes and shapes instantly create a welcoming impression and are the perfect choice to define a small space.

Dining Room

200 x 300 cm

Go for this size to leave enough rug space around the dining table for the chairs to be pulled out. An 8-chair table will fit perfectly. This type of composition makes the dining room feel more inviting as a family or friends reunion space.

140 x 200 - 140 x 210 - 170 x 240 cm

Chairs will also fit well with these sizes when pulled away from the table. These rugs fit a 6-4-chair dining table.

120 x 160 - 120 x 170 - 110 x 180 - 120 x 180 cm

A perfect rectangular fit under your 4-chair dining table. A size to visually set the boundaries of the dining area.

Ø150 - Ø160 cm

For a 4-chair table. Round rugs are ideal to create visual harmony, because they will also perfectly fit under your table.

Bedroom

200 x 300 cm

Lay the rug horizontally fitting two thirds of the bed on the rug. It will cover space all around the bed. Depending on your bed size, you’ll be able to fit the entire room set (bed frame and side tables) on the rug.

 

140 x 200 - 140 x 210 - 170 x 240 cm

Lay the rug horizontally fitting one third of the bed on the rug. You can also underlay two or more of these rugs (or smaller sizes) to cover more space. Depending on your bed size, you will be able to cover two thirds of the bed.

 

Ø150 - Ø160 cm

Place one third of the rug under either side of the bed. They will work as bedside rugs adding a lovely symmetry to the room. You can also just add one under one of the bed’s corners.

 

 

80 x 120 - 80 x 230 cm

Runner rugs are also ideal as bedside rugs to provide comfort to the feet at bedtime or when getting up. For the perfect fit, and depending on the size of your bed, place the bigger size starting under the bedside table.

 

Kitchen

140 x 200 - 140 x 210 - 170 x 240 - 200 x 300 cm

One or two overlaid rugs of these sizes on your kitchen floor can often mark the difference between a well-decorated kitchen and a regular one – and don’t worry if you spill something on them, they are washable!

 

 

120 x 160 - 120 x 170 - 110 x 180 - 120 x 180 cm

You can also place just one rug to cover the whole area – a good option for L-shaped kitchens, making for a cozy space in which cooking will become more enjoyable.

80 x 120 - 80 x 230 cm

Place the rug against the kitchen furniture. This will add a touch of coziness to the space while protecting the floor from splashes.

Nurseries

120 x 160 - 120 x 170 - 110 x 180 - 120 x 180 cm

Place these rugs in the middle of the room or next to the crib. They will also make for the perfect play area. Choose the rug size according to the space and furniture distribution in the room.

 

Ø120 - Ø140 cm

When you have a twin bedroom, these rugs are ideal for placing in between or at the foot of the beds. Even if you only have one single bed, they’ll work well as a side rug

 

80 x 120 - 80 x 230 cm

These rugs are ideal for creating cozy little corners in the nursery, as play mats or at the foot of a rocking chair.

Narrow Spaces

80 x 120 - 80 x 230 cm

Runner rugs are the best option to fit in hallways and small balconies. A practical and comfortable option if you like walking barefooted in these areas.
