    What size rug is best?

    Painters & Decorators

    What is the ideal size rug for my living room? Is there a certain proportion that I should consider, like for example, 1:8 to floor area or is it more particular than that? If so, what factors should I consider when choosing the right sized rug for the front room? thaks.

    "As long as you leave space to move around the rug it doesn’t matter but between 1&2 foot between furniture and of course depending on the room size"

    "You should have a good foot of space all sides of the rug"

    "Personally I prefer a two foot space between say the sofa and the edge of your rug. But it’s down to personal choice"

    "Well, it depends on rooms size and where you actually want the rug to be fitted but minority people always use 7x10 feet rug so best to measure where you want the rug to start from with to length."
